Welcome Melissa Ryan to the Alan Wang Realty Group!

As any business grows and scales, there comes a time that one realizes that one can't do it all alone.  Our theme for 2015 is "Scalable Growth."  It has been challenging to figure out how to maintain the same high level of service and quality while also realizing that there are only so many hours in a day. The answer is to hire high quality talent and train them in the right methodologies.  I am pleased to add yet another member to our team today.  I am proud to introduce Melissa Ryan who has been at Keller Williams for over 9 years.  I am very honored that Melissa chose to join our team in order grow her career welcome to the team!

New Listings, Open Houses and Property Tax Reminder

I hope that Q1 has been good to you and your family.  My Q1 2015 Real Estate update is in progress so I will send that out shortly so stay tuned.  In three sentences I would say that we are in the most aggressive Seller’s market I have seen in my 12 year career.  If you are a Seller I would sell now while things are going well, as a Buyer let’s make sure we sit down and strategize how to win in this market.  Investors there are still a few locations that may get good rent, but overall flipping is a risky bet as there maybe a slowdown around the corner.

Interest Rates

I never imagined that interest rates would be at another low.  I am refinancing again, let me know if I should connect you with my loan agent to look at your loans.
