What Is To Come In Real Estate For 2023 With Theresa Ahdieh

Happy New Year!  This year has brought about changes to my business and life.  All is grand on both fronts, but change – they both have.

I am sad but very excited for Hannah.  Hannah the keeper of keys and all things Theresa has moved on to new & exciting challenges in the Real Estate world!  I am very excited for her and her family.  We are still great friends, just not business partners any longer.

What that means for me is new skills to be learned & the hiring of Finally Social.  Finally Social is a Social Media & marketing business own & operated in Kirkland.  Erin Alexander is the Top Social Butterfly at Finally Social.  Erin is a hoot! Her and her team are helping me to get to the next level in my business.   So, if you haven’t already, please go to my Facebook Business Page and follow me.  All my events, happenings, and Real Estate stuff will be here first & foremost!

I also have a Instagram Page for Under the Pink Umbrella – please follow me here  as well.

All of my events & happenings for 2023 are scheduled and I have some fun ones!  Be on the look out – they will be posted everywhere and my website is getting some upgrading too!  Lots of technical aspects are being addressed, but the same service, fun, laughter, and commitment to helping you, friends, family, and others is still the same.

The Best Compliment I can receive is a referral from you!  I look forward to helping, advocating, & advising this next year and many more for you and yours!

With Gratitude for all of YOU –

What does it mean?
What a difference a week makes. As I wrote this message to you all a week ago, we were at 3.5 months of inventory, today, that number has declined to 1.9 months. Inventory numbers are still well below where they were this time last month. The number of homes that have gone pending so far this month are pretty much flat in comparison to the first 12 days of December.

Broadening the scope a bit, the eastside market’s months of inventory is down 32% month on month.
