Q: Will the Election Have an Impact on Our Market?

Here are my thoughts on the potential impact of the election on our real estate market.

I knew this question would come my way sooner or later: A home seller recently asked me how the upcoming election would affect the real estate market. I imagine I’ll be hearing that question more and more as we get closer to November 3, so I wanted to give a detailed answer today.

If you have any questions for me about the market or real estate in general, don’t hesitate to give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Q: What Is Allen Johnson’s Biggest “Lesson Learned”?

In a recent Inman News column, Allen Johnson shared his “lessons learned”.

Allen Johnson, our head of AJ Team Realty, was recently featured in “Lesson Learned,” a popular Inman News column by Christy Murdock Edgar where real estate professionals share important insights they’ve learned during their time in the industry. Allen’s central advice was to navigate both the highs and lows of real estate with the same balanced mindset, because after all, “...life is bigger than selling a house. We serve families.”

In addition to warning against constantly chasing numbers, Allen also talked about the value of joining a real estate team and his goals for the next five years. Check out the whole article here.
