During National Realtor Safety Month, we usually focus on how you can protect yourself from physical harm or your information from thieves. This year, as you already know, is different. Many experts anticipate a much-feared second wave of COVID-19 cases in the fall, as students go back to school and the weather cools.
Did you catch the Boise Chamber of Commerce’s webinar about COVID and our local real estate market? We did, and we were blown away by April Florczyk’s insights — so we called her for a deeper dive. April’s business, 208 Market, is experiencing incredible, record-busting growth this year. We talked to her about competing with cash offers, the Treasure Valley’s new hotspots, and why you don’t even need a finished house to make a sale.
Last month, we introduced you to our new employees — and we’re back this month with four more! We’re so pleased to welcome two escrow assistants and two front office coordinators to the team as part of our continued commitment to bringing you the best service in the Valley. Ready to get to know them?
A flurry of surveys about how the pandemic has changed buying habits dropped last month, contributing to a growing body of evidence that the housing market is nothing like it was even a year ago.
Our teams are growing across the board, with new employees in every one of our Treasure Valley offices. These all-stars will serve as title and escrow assistants so you can experience smoother transactions with fewer delays. Want to get to know these new faces? Read on to learn a bit more about them (and their hidden superpowers).
The Treasure Valley housing market has smashed every expectation for yet another month, and I am in the very weird place of sounding like a broken record of optimism.
Straight talk: If you’re not using social media to build your business, you’re getting left behind — especially in this hyper-competitive market. According to the National Association of Realtors, social media was cited as the best source for generating high-quality leads (47%), even better than MLS listings (32%).
Natalie Lemas Hernandez, CEO of Commercial Northwest Property Management, is a superstar in the Treasure Valley commercial world. We asked this digital native how commercial real estate professionals can tap into the power of social media.
Michelle Bailey, the Idaho region partner for the Ben Kinney Real Estate Team, is a standout real estate agent in a highly competitive market — a feat that’s not exactly easy to accomplish! So when we began thinking about people who could help fellow agents find their own successes, Michelle immediately came to mind. We asked her how she has managed to build stellar client relationships (often from afar) while maintaining excellent customer service.
