How does your team meet clients’ needs?
To quote one client, “They showed us that we mattered and made us feel like we were their only client.” We are longtime owners and investors and know how critically important it is that we understand our clients’ needs and goals. We are advisors to our clients and transform their ideas into successful purchases and sales.
What differentiates your team?
We envelop our clients with 360 degrees of support. Working our respective strengths enables us to provide full-service attention before, during and after the transaction. We are members of ProVisors, a national professional networking group of over 9,000 vetted trusted advisors nationwide. We can quickly tap attorneys, accountants, architects, financial advisors, lenders, etc., which has proved to be a tremendous resource for our clients.
What do you expect to see in South Bay real estate this year?
The 2024 South Bay real estate market shows promise. Loan rates have been declining since November and should continue to gradually decline. Home prices are expected to stay firm and accelerate as the spring buying season gets rolling and previously hesitant buyers enter the market due to better loan rates. The market may experience a sales volume slowdown in the third quarter due to uncertainty surrounding the November election.
Why did you choose real estate work?
We were each introduced to real estate by our families and experienced how quickly it can build and sustain wealth. We also saw how problems can emerge if people are not properly represented. Real estate transactions are complex, and you need a good “tribe” around you to succeed. We feel strongly that it is up to us to help others get on the real estate escalator to building wealth.
