Helping Students Learn 21st Century Skills

Nicole Talking to StudentsRecently I visited Washington Street School to speak with students about my own professional business experience. Meeting with the AIG students, I discussed my profession as a real estate broker, college and career choices, and the current economic situation. I was glad to help these students learn and prepare for the future and I hope, when the time comes, hearing about my experience will help make their journey into financial independence easier.

2011 Real Estate at a Glance a Year in Review

There are many reasons why I enjoy helping people with their real estate needs. First and foremost is the deep satisfaction I get from helping them realize their dreams and get through the major transition that accompanies buying, selling, and moving.

That’s why, in my ongoing commitment to providing first-class service, I can confidently say that if I can’t answer a specific home related question you have, I’m a phone call  or e-mail away from an expert in my professional network who can.

Everyone wants to know what is happening in our local market and that is why I am sending you this Real Estate Market Update so you will have the facts about what is happening in your market and not just what you hear on the news nationally. Here is a breakdown of sales for 2010 compared to 2011:

As you can see, the market is Richmond County was down significantly in 2011. Total sales almost dropped back to 2004 levels which hopefully signals we have reached a bottom and the market will stabilize going into 2012. As you can see from the numbers above, only one in three properties listed are selling, much lower than last year. Days on market only takes into account the listings that have sold, not the ones that never sell. Also, take a look at the list to sales price ratio; homes are selling at 9% below list price on average. What this means is for a home to sell, it has to be priced attractively to even receive an can see, the market is Richmond County was down significantly in 2

 In 2012, we will work even harder to be sure our clients get the best marketing and client services available. We have started our website upgrade and are aggressively seeking new ways to generate referrals to help bring buyers and sellers together.

Thanks to all of our friends, clients, and business partners Exit Realty Platinum is the ONLY franchise in Richmond County that increased sales from 2010 to 2011! Exit Realty was also awarded the Best of the Best Real Estate Company in 2011, thank you again for your support!
