A successful real estate agent is similar to a conductor of a symphony, coordinating the different players to make a transaction a reality. At different points in the process, I am a salesperson, an analyst,  a business manager, a consultant, a negotiator, and a marketer, just to name a few.  Having experience in every facet of real estate is important now more than ever.

Utilizing the nuances that make a specific community’s housing market and pricing strategy unique is how my clients benefit most.  Knowledge is power -in my 40 years of real estate experience I never stopped adapting to and learning from new situations. Our new situation is extremely low inventory and a whirlwind of real estate sales.

For example, looking at some statistics in two popular single family communities in our area tells a compelling tale.  Last year at this time, Bird Key had 19 homes for sale and no pending sales.  Fast forward to today and Bird Key has 7 active listings and 15 pending sales!  Country Club Shores on Longboat Key is another example of just how busy our market currently is absorbing properties.  Last year at this time there were 16 active listings and one pending sale.  Today, there are 8 active listings and 14 pending sales.

Interest in our community has never been higher and it is clear to me that listing your home now when demand is high and prices steady is an excellent idea!
