As I reflect on this past year, I feel very blessed to have you as a reader of this weekly newsletter. I am grateful for your support and feedback as I am trying to share my insights and stories on the housing market.
I hope this is helpful for you and even saved you money when you were buying or selling real estate in Columbus or elsewhere.
Looking Back on a Great Year
There’s no doubt that 2018 was a crazy year for both home sellers and buyers. The first half was dominated by bidding wars, buyers spending way more than asking price, and listings flying off the shelves in just a few days.
The market slowed down over the summer when many buyers decided to take a break from house hunting, and some extended their leases for another year.
Over the past few months, however, your referrals kept me busier than ever. I thank you for that.
We Helped 126 Families Buy or Sell a Home
I am very excited to tell you that our RE/MAX 24/7 agents helped 126 families with the purchase or sale of a house. We are truly grateful for the trust you put in all of us! Thank you for introducing me and my agents to your friends and colleagues.
Although my office is located in the Dublin Historic District, we sold homes throughout Central Ohio and in most price ranges (as you can see in the map below).
Appreciation & Giving Back
I truly feel blessed by the business opportunities you send my way. To show my gratitude I am always looking to give back and help others in need. This year my husband Kurt and I tripled our contributions to various charities, including the Red Cross, the National Park Foundation, the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, and the Boy Scouts.
In addition, I donated a portion of every commission check to the Children’s Miracle Network. If you sold or purchased a house with me, you probably received an Honor Card from them.
My donations go directly to Nationwide Children’s Hospital right here in Columbus and support research to cure sick kids.
Here’s a short video clip of a Children’s Miracle Network ambassador who gained some fame on America’s Got Talent.
I look forward to connecting again next year. Please remember, I am never too busy to help you and your friends in all real estate matters.
May all of your dreams, hopes, and wishes for 2019 come true!
