March Brokerage Award Winners Happy Opening Day! April 7, 2022 By Happy APRIL! It was so nice to get the team together at today’s brokerage meeting. It’s extra special as we have a Canva training after the meeting, followed by a pre-opening day coney dog lunch sponsored by Superior National Bank. We talked a lot about the market in this month’s meeting, including some of the current challenges and forecasts for the year. Interest rates recently just hit over 5%, which isn’t the highest we’ve seen in the past 10 years, but certainly impactful to buyers eager to take advantage of rates in the mid 3% we’ve had the last few months. While inventory remains low our CEO, Simon Thomas reminds us that the focus should be on maintaining and strengthening relationships, because nothing is certain in this market and many things are out of our control. We do expect inventory to rise over the next few months, so that should help to balance out the market. Stay positive, and keep ongoing. We also had a guest speaker by House Master Home Inspections to share some of their services and how they can help our agents. Thanks for joining us! Our monthly winners always remind us to celebrate our wins in life and to always keep working because there is business to be done. Help us congratulate our winners below!
