Lucky 7

I consider myself lucky in a lot of ways - family, friends, career, etc. Recently, I was lucky enough to be ranked #7 in the Top 20 Real Estate Agents of Greater Boston.



Twenty-seven years of gaining experience, building networks, establishing relationships, growing a team and fine-tuning the real estate experience to accommodate the unique needs of each and every client isn't just luck - it's what happens when preparation meets opportunity.


Here's a quick Q&A with Boston's Top 20 on what I like and don't like about the business, what the greatest challenges are (and how to overcome them).


 

Many thanks to Boston's Top 20 for featuring the hard work of The Home Advantage Team.

Check Your Real Estate-of-Mind: Take Our Local Housing Market Survey

When it comes to housing, a lot has changed in the past few years. Interest rates and inventory are down, rents and home values are up, and both national and local housing markets have picked up the pace.  All of this activity has left some people out of breath, which is why we thought it would be a good time for real estate pulse check.

Take the survey, share on Facebook and enter to win a $50 gift certificate to Tryst Restaurant!

We invite you to take a two minute break and answer ten quick questions - just enough to justify a respite from whatever it is you are doing without inducing guilt for slacking off.
Participate in the survey and see what the word is on the street - whether you're on Main Street in Medford,  Appleton Street in Arlington, or Lincoln Street in Lexington, we want to see where your real estate-of-mind is at.
Plus, share this survey with your friends on Facebook and you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to Tryst in Arlington Center.
(This is an anonymous survey - no personal information will be gathered/shared. Results will be communicated when the survey is complete).
