Natalie U. Roy, Owner, REALTOR®
A: While I wish I had a crystal ball, the resilience and adaptability that got us through the tumultuous year of 2020 will undoubtedly serve us all well through the remainder of 2021 and beyond. As in so many areas of our lives, there is a new normal in real estate. In addition to major technology innovations, last year brought new safety protocols, which will be here until vaccinations are completed. Masks, sanitizer, social distancing, zoom meetings and al fresco settlements are here for a while more. Most experts also anticipate low inventory and historically low interest rates to continue. This competitive seller’s market requires being prepared, knowing the market and moving fast.
Q: What aspects of the business have not changed?
A: Relationships and service. BRG and I are committed to getting every client to the finish line with a smile on their face. Technology cannot replace relationships. Exceptional service + safety guidelines + technology = 2021 Real Estate success. It is also essential that the buying and selling experience be as much fun as possible. Ask us about our community house hunting bike tours and unique open houses. We have used ice cream and pie socials, a classic car show, an electric bike demonstration, jazz quartet, donut truck and a bag piper to bring more attention to our clients’ beautiful homes. Fun sells because it promotes a positive outlook; that is the key to the best real estate transactions.
