    September Market Updates


    As with most sales professionals, referrals are the life blood of their business. If you know anyone who has an interest in buying, selling, or investing in real estate, it would be really helpful to me if you'd tell them that you have a friend who's a great real estate person and would love to help them. You know I'll give them the extra attention that I give every one of my clients.

    It's that time of the year for many parents to start counting the days until school starts. If you're one of the lucky ones, school has already started. :)

    As the school year begins, everyone's thoughts turn towards the children. Did you know owning a home benefits your children? Some interesting statistics have been published about this and I thought I would pass them along.

    Childrens reading scores are 7% higher for homeowners.

    Childrens math scores are 9% higher for homeowners.

    High school graduation is 25% higher for homeowners.

    And the big one... College graduation is 116% higher for homeowners.

    So lets get your kids on the path to success... call me today and lets get you into a home (or a bigger one!)  :)
