On Monday, I had the “pleasure” of attending a 10-hour Real Estate Continuing Education class. Half of me thinks it’s GREAT that Realtors are now required to act like professionals and complete credits on a biannual basis. The other half of me wants my Monday back.

This is very non-scientific but I made the following observations about a group of about 150 Realtors:

  1. Average age for the room was somewhere around 50 years old.
  2. As far as I could tell, at 30, I was the youngest person in the room.
  3. 65% Male, 35% Female
  4. The “Male Realtor Uniform” was overwhelmingly khaki pants and a blue fleece. If you ever want to blend in with a group of Realtors or dress up like one for Halloween, you’re welcome.
  5. 4 people sat in the front row. 6 people in the second row. The back 5 rows were ENTIRELY full. What does this tell you about the level of commitment to learn? (Aside – I once had a very tough Art History teacher declare that she was certain that the 1st row in the lecture hall would receive A’s, the 2nd row A’s and B’s, and anywhere beyond the 3rd row would have C’s, D’s and F’s. She learned this over 30 years of lecturing.)
  6. About 50% of the attendees just barely made it into the room on time. Approximately 10% were unequivocally late.

Very very interesting……

I’m looking back at 2012 and reflecting. Yes, I’m a month late, but hey- I’ve been super busy!

In 2012 I helped 9 families into great new homes. 6 of those were in Barclay Farm. 1 new construction deal, 5 sets of first time homebuyers.

I exceeded my own expectations AND set a new earnings record for myself.

This would normally be a “good” year but I’m going to go ahead and call it a “GREAT” year because it was done in 10 months with 1 hand tied behind my back. (Or holding & nursing a baby.)

2012 was not easy, but it was definitely great!

Now…. Here’s the fun part… Our team is growing! We are hiring another Buyers Agent. Who do you know who’d like to get in now, just as things are totally heating up?

Alert!!!

The market has turned.

It’s been a while since the MLS has cracked me up. Or frightened me. Today it did both.

Appears to be a typical Cherry Hill home…

A nice Split-Level for sale….

Obviously the pictures are sub-par but what else is new…

…And then BAM!!!!

Up close and personal with a totally creepy doll collection!!!!

WHAAAAAAT!

I am 100% baffled as to why a Realtor thought this was one of the 25 most important pictures of the house.

Wow my last entry was in March?!

And let me tell you why. The market is UP! Buyers are buying! Sellers are selling! We have been thrillingly busy.

If you’ve been waiting to buy, you simply must take action now. Email me to start your home search. Let’s go.

I’m back!

With the fantastic cooperation of my 4 month old, I found myself at the settlement table yesterday for the first time since November. And it felt great.

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as putting a lovely couple in their first home – AND it’s in the best neighborhood in Cherry Hill (Barclay Farm of course) – AND at an incredible price – AND it was a Keri Ricci Team listing. This is as good as it gets.

Oh AND my friend referred these guys to me – love when the Sphere of Influence comes through.

I love my job!
