Giving Thanks for a Great Year in East Bay Real Estate!

by arlene on November 26, 2014

unnamed (2)2014 will be my most productive year in real estate. And so with Thanksgiving fast approaching here are some of the key things for which I give thanks not just this week, but throughout the year:

–My clients. Each of my buyers and sellers had many choices of agents to guide them through their purchase, or help them prepare and market their homes. They chose me, and I am truly grateful for that trust, and for the continuing referrals that are the primary source of my business.

–My brokerage, Red Oak Realty. It’s a progressive company with a  smart, caring and remarkably large management team for a relatively small, seriously local company. One of the ways they distinguish themselves is by providing a mentor program for new agents, and they chose me to be that mentor. My first group has graduated, and I am proud of their successes.

–My Colleagues. The quality of agents in the Bay Area is very high. I recently had occasion to present an offer to an agent who did not inspire confidence. I was reminded how much that is the exception, and I give thanks for a community that provides a very high standard of care to our clients.

–Living in Paradise. It’s turning a wee bit chilly, but really, we live in a gorgeous area with wonderful weather. And architecture! I just had the true pleasure of representing a Julie Morgan landmark, one of the most beautiful properties I’ve ever listed. As I looked out at sail boats on the bay during a Sunday open house there I remember thinking: “it doesn’t get much better than this!”  We are so fortunate to have housing stock that includes the best of Arts & Crafts, First Bay Tradition, numerous revival styles and mid-century modern homes.

Real estate is a profession that is pressured, time-critical and intense. The stakes are high for all involved.  I couldn’t be the best that I am without my dear husband David, who is my rock.  And thanks to all of you for being part of my extended real estate family. May you have a lovely Thanksgiving celebration with your family and friends!
