Celebrating 14 Years at RE/MAX of Nanaimo Today
I wanted to reach out and say THANK YOU today as I celebrate 14 years as a RE/MAX of Nanaimo real estate agent. I truly love what I do, and I am humbled and grateful for the trust of my clients who have allowed me to represent them during the purchase or sale of their property. Even in difficult times like we are experiencing now, I know that things will get better and we will heal. Things won't go back to the "old normal" but we will soon receive direction from our government to determine what our "new normal" looks like. I know that our community is proud, resilient and compassionate and we will get through this together.
Many of you who read my weekly updates recall that I became a home seller myself during COVID-19. I encountered many of the same concerns from buyers about purchasing in an uncertain market, and I truly believe that it has made me a better Realtor as a result. Safety protocols to ensure the health and protection of other agents, potential buyers, and appraisers were carefully designed and replicated for all of my listings (including my home). I also received many of the same type of feedback as my other sellers, as buyers were hesitant to make an offer while being encouraged to remain at home. However, I am happy to report that my home has gone subject-free and is officially SOLD as of this morning. I couldn't ask for a better way to celebrate my 14th anniversary as a real estate professional than to put up a sold topper at my former family home.
If you are considering selling your home, I am happy to share with you helpful tips and advice that helped me. Additionally, when preparing to sell a home, it is a good idea to ask me about staging tips and renovation ideas that are specific to your home. I am always happy to do a walk-through with clients (or, if you prefer, remotely using tools such as Facetime or Zoom) to offer hints and suggestions that can save time and money when updating a home to sell. Let me provide the experience and expertise that you need to successfully navigate this changing real estate market. You can reach me anytime at 250-585-2601. I look forward to speaking with you.
We are in this together and THANK YOU so much for your support over the past 14 years. Here is to the next 14...together.
