Pullman WA Real Estate Reflections

 

This year in Pullman Washington I have had the opportunity to work with a good amount of both buyers and sellers.

My listings that I began with the season have for the most part sold.  I worked very hard this year to market their homes.  And those that sold were sellers who took advantage of their showings by putting their best foot forward and  priced their homes to sell.  A lot of sellers just don't get to see the competition as we as Realtors do.  But those who were motivated to get their home ready and priced right did well in our Pullman Real Estate Market.

The buyers I have worked with are now settled into their new Pullman homes. In fact, as we are approaching Thanksgiving now just a few weeks away, I have found myself thinking of my new buyers in their new home for their first thanksgiving.  I was fortunate to have a few first time home buyers this year, and I would expect many of them are hosting their first Thanksgiving and before long Christmas. And surprisingly, I have had a several buyers after the tax credit ended, some still waiting to close this year.

As I begin November and the sky is blue, the weather is mild, and the leaves still beautiful, it causes me to feel very fortunate this year.  Fortunate for the opportunity to work with some really great sellers and really great buyers.   And fortunate to live in Pullman Washington where it is not uncommon for me to run into my clients over town or in the grocery store.  I guess that is one of the best benefits of being a Realtor in a small town like Pullman.  And one of the things that truly makes me love my chosen profession in Real Estate.  It really isn't about a product such as a house, it is all about filling those once empty rooms with a life full of memories.

I agree! And I'd add, just as in a small town, in Seattle I am so blessed to work with so many top notch real estate professionals that really care about their clients. These are challenging times for sure, but there's no better feeling when the outcome of working together puts good people in a good home.

it is all about filling those once empty rooms with a life full of memories - I love that line - you put into words what I feel the best part of being a realtor is - making a future.  (Sorry for the dangling participle - didn't know how to say it correctly.)

What a nice reflection on the year you've had. I feel the same way but am ready for a little down time myself. I hope to be hosting Thanksgiving this year for a house full of family and friends. The snow can wait though.....

Lori, it's good to be able to reflect positively on the year that you've had. You nicely summed up the real focus of everything that we do.
