There are still a number of days until Christmas but everyone is already getting into the holiday spirit!  We are lucky to have the city of Prescott officially named "Arizona's Christmas City"  Prescott was named Arizona's Christmas City by Governor Rose Mofford in 1989, in recognition of the community’s dedication to the Christmas spirit.  As always this time of the year there are great events and festivities throughout the Prescott area.

It's Okay to Just Talk to a Real Estate Agent

It’s Okay to Just Talk to a Real Estate Agent

by Joe Karcie

Every once in a while, I’ll be in a public place such as a restaurant and I’ll casually overhear people talking about the real estate market.  Usually, their conversations end with “but I don’t really know.”  Here’s the thing as real estate agents: we are okay just talking about the market.  If you’re curious about what’s going on in our local market, I’m always happy to talk about the latest in Prescott area real estate.  It’s what I do all day, every day.  No, I will not continually send you properties telling you should buy, and no I will not hound you telling you to sell. 

Many people shy away from talking to real estate professionals because they think they may talk you into something you do not want to do.  A true real estate professional just wants to provide you with the information you ask for and offer some perspective based on their experience.  If you don’t talk to a real estate agent about real estate who are you going to ask?

Next time you see me in my RE/MAX polo, feel free to stop and introduce yourself and ask what’s happening in the market today.  One thing I will always do is tell you what I know, and not what you want to hear.
