Goodbye 2013 – Hello 2014!

Happy New Year! I can’t believe another one has flown by so quickly and what an amazing year it had been. Going into 2013 I decided to take my real estate career to the next level and with hard work and a great team by my side I was able to accomplish so many of my goals.  Looking back, it was such a busy year with challenges and successes that I wish I started this blog sooner to share all the lessons learned.  Plumbing issues, changing neighborhoods, learning about horse property in Palos Verdes, the importance of working with a trusted lender, positioning my clients offers to get accepted in this challenging market, oh the list could go on.  One of my favorite things about the Real estate industry is that it is always changing and there’s always something new to learn. I plan on posting on a weekly basis and I invite everyone to follow me on my journey and partake in sharing stories or questions. I’m really excited to see what 2014 has in store for us. Let’s make it another great year!

Here are some of my favorite highlights of 2013:

Checking out the progress of Carissa’s brand new studio/condo. It was so much fun being able to help her pick out her railings/cabinets/countertops/etc. I love new developments!

It was a long road but we finally closed escrow! Note to new buyers: new developments take patience but is well worth it. So proud of my best friend and all her amazing accomplishments including buying her very own home.  644534_10100703415851037_984327_n
Paul and Allegra closed escrow on their view first home. Such a cute victorian style home which was being sold by an investor who completely gutted the original place and made it just like brand new. Been seeing so many of these flipped homes on the market this year.  602129_10100659080958517_1497206226_n
Passed my renewal exam. Can you believe I’ve been a realtor for 4 years now? Time sure does fly!942541_10100713772196837_1740995330_n
Volunteered for habitat for humanity and got to help paint the interior of a home going to a well deserved family. 602425_10100546203251347_507256556_n
Attended many work shops and seminars. This one was one of my favorites hosted by PNC mortgage called “wired for success”. They spoke about the influence of social media on the housing market. 557197_10100885372718017_1698690377_n
*I wish I had more pictures of my clients throughout the year. To my surprise I was named a top realtor at my brokerage closing over 20 deals this year. It is without a doubt that my success is due to the support of my amazing brokerage- Hunter Mason Realty. I look forward to another fabulous year and hopefully maintaining my spot as a top realtor. I will be sure to take more pictures of my amazing clients and fun events.
