A Better Way to Buy at the Beach!

As with all things in life, Real Estate Agents and Agencies come in all shapes and sizes, with a perfect fit somewhere out there for everyone! So, How do you know which agent and agency is for you then? Well, when I started in this business at a time when many people were beginning in the real estate business I was asked…”How are you going to set yourself apart from the rest?” “How are you going to be able to stand out amongst the crowd?”

To be quite honest, I really didn’t know the answer to the questions. How WAS I going to set myself apart from the new agents and even more importantly, the experienced ones, with a large following of loyal clients? Well, many months later I think I am just beginning to figure it out and I think that the secret is…To Be Better, to do more, and to be there for my clients! Exceed Expectations! Give my Clients “A Better Way to Buy at the Beach”.

So that is exactly what I set out to do. Firstly, I realized that “Real Estate” is so much more than just buying and selling homes. It’s really all about building relationships and helping people navigate the process that can seem so overwhelming for most buyers and sellers. Getting to the closing table may be the end goal but believe me it begins much further back to the initial meeting with a client and the building of trust one step at a time. Those trusting relationships are the building blocks to success at the closing table. For many buyers, buying a home is about creating memories and building dreams, building generational wealth and family stability. And for some, it may be the beginning of the final chapter to a well lived adventure!

So as I ask myself the questions….

What can I do To Be Better? To Help my Clients? Build Relationships? Give my Clients a Better Way to Buy at the Beach?

To Exceed Expectations, so that when our transaction is complete, I know that our relationship is just in the beginning stages!

A Better Way to Buy at the Beach!


Existing-home sales edged lower in March, according to the National Association of Realtors®. Month-over-month sales declined in three out of four major U.S. regions, while sales in the Northeast remained steady. All regions posted year-over-year decreases.

“Home sales are trying to recover and are highly sensitive to changes in mortgage rates,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “Yet, at the same time, multiple offers on starter homes are quite common, implying more supply is needed to fully satisfy demand. It’s a unique housing market.”

“Home prices continue to rise in regions where jobs are being added and housing is relatively affordable,” Yun noted. “However, the more expensive areas of the country are adjusting to lower prices.”

“With overall consumer price inflation calming and rents expected to decelerate from robust apartment construction, the Federal Reserve’s monetary policy will surely shift from tightening to neutral to possibly loosening over the next 12 months,” Yun added. “Therefore, home sales will steadily rebound despite several months of fluctuations.”*
