2021 New Year
As a Jewish person I have what I like to call a “do over”. I get to celebrate the new year and make resolutions twice. (My partners, Chari and Yvette are Christian.)
This year as we approach the High Holy days which are Rosh Hashanah the Jewish New Year and Yom Kippur the Day of Atonement I look back on a year of change.
Our real estate market feels like it’s been on a roller coaster. Multiple offers on listings used to be uncommon, today they seem to be the norm. To the public, depending on what side you are on you either love them or hate them. Sellers may look at them as a great way to make more money, while buyers are not happy with competing. As agents we must be on our toes to be sure all agents, buyers and sellers are treated fairly. It’s part of the oath we take as Realtors®. (If you would like more information as to how we handle multiple offers please ask.)
Change is good and even our team is making some changes. I am NOT retiring, but I am working with a few less buyers. I have a new right knee that I am trying hard to “break in”. Slow and steady and until it’s totally healed, I’ll depend on my teammates a little more.
Chari is now a true empty nester. Her youngest, Ben, has gone away to college…Clemson. It remains to be seen if Chari will start to wear orange.
Yvette continues to make working with the social media tool Canva look easy. One of these days I’ll master it.
My resolutions are few for this Jewish New Year. I will take time to smell the roses, spend more time with the people I love, and be extra kind to everyone.
As always, we love what we do and are happy to help you. You can reach us at: Homes@CharlestonFineHomes.com.
