July Brokerage Award Winners Celebrating Top TEN in Realcomp August 4, 2022 By Lindsay LawrieJohn LionasRebecca SokolDoug RahaimLauren Rahaim Happy AUGUST! This month we celebrated an awesome month of July, ranking #9 in Realcomp! Plus, our new expansion to our Birmingham office, is now completed and ready for use! Congratulations and thank you to everyone for your hard work this month. Jon Aucott, from Superior National Bank, shared that since the Fed raised rates last week, interest rates actually went down due to the economy slowing down. It’s hard to gauge but overall it seems like rates are starting to level out. However, if you are looking for investment properties or a second home, you will be looking at an additional 2-3 points of origination fees, making it more expensive to own a second home. DOBI CEO, Simon Thomas, shared a valuable message about embracing change. Its the best time to be able to grow and evolve. As of this month we will be in our fourth year of business, and have put processes in place that have shaped the way other brokerages in the area do business. DOBI’s focus on our agent experience, marketing, and training have set us a step ahead in the industry. Bottom line- we care. Please help us congratulate our monthly brokerage winners below!
