The new year has finally arrived, and I’d like to share three predictions for our 2019 market that will help you buy or sell in the months ahead. I’ll be covering the first of these predictions today, and the remaining two in future messages.


The first prediction is one that has held true every year since I’ve been in the real estate industry, and likely every year before that, as well—I predict that thousands of unsuccessful agents will exit the business in 2019. Entering the real estate industry is easy, but being successful in the business isn’t. 54% of agents earn less than $50,000 each year, while 20% of agents earn less than $10,000.


The best professionals in any industry are those who care.


And when you combine these statistics with the fact that successful agents must invest some of their income into providing top-notch service for their clients, it’s no wonder why some people don’t make the cut. Truly, real estate is an industry where only the best and the brightest can thrive.


Take the example of another service-based industry: health care. There are health care practitioners out there who are only in business to make money, but the ones you can truly rely on are those who actually want to help people. Whether it’s in health care or real estate, the best professionals are those who care.


When you work with us, you can trust that this is true for every one of our team members. We are all committed to making your real estate experience as good as it can be.
