Almost October already!

Dear <<First Name>>,

Why is it that I can smell fall in the air so distinctly more than any other season of the year?  It's difficult to describe exactly what the scent is...leaves turning from green to brown and pine needles mixed in with colder morning temperatures.  That fall feeling has such an incredible sentimental association for me of the anticipation of snow on its way, leaves changing colors, and pulling out the warm socks and sweaters from the back of the closet. 

It's also the time of year when homesellers start to get antsy about selling before the normally quieter winter months.  There are always fewer buyers in winter as school starts and people settle in for the holidays.  We are seeing price reductions and a shift towards more aggressive pricing of new listings to decrease the days on market.

As always, feel free to call me or email me with questions about Central Oregon real estate.  Enjoy the fall!

As some of you may know, I am not very good at marketing myself.  So sometimes, I ask my clients to write a testimonial of their experience of working with me.  The other day, I got the most AMAZING response to my request and I felt I must share it with you. 

"Hello Anna~

I have finally completed my testimonial, it was months in the works.  You asked for a few sentences, however I wanted to be intentional with my thoughts and it took me longer than I had intended! 


Working with Anna was a positive and collaborative experience.  She always expressed genuine care and concern when questioning my new home 'list of priorities', it was comforting knowing she was truly paying attention.  Anna never made me feel that the objective was selling a property but more about supporting those who are making transitions in their lives.  She is an exceptional listener, a creative problem-solver and pays careful attention to detail!

Anna is dedicated, dependable and passionate about her work.  She played a key role in the purchase of my new home!  No matter the question, she would find the answer or find the person who had the answer...So supportive when making life decisions like purchasing a home.  Her replies were quick, understanding the anticipation on my end.  There was always the underlying commitment to the process of providing a positive experience no matter the outcome.  I always had the feeling that she was looking out for my best interests!

Anna is organized, efficient, and was able to anticipate my needs, enabling her to provide the support needed to people like me..."Not really sure what I want, however here is my list of priorities".  Anna was flexible and willing to
meet my needs on my terms without exception even though the circumstances might not have been convenient for her.  I could depend on her to handle stressful situations well, while she problem solved in a positive manner.

In the end don't you want someone who is working with you to find the home that will fit your needs and desires, but ultimately will be honest?!  Someone that when you ask a question, you know the answer will be honest and not necessarily something you want to hear... Anna has the integrity that one can count on, her actions are consistent with her stated views and she can be relied upon to follow through on commitments with honesty and respect.

Finally, I purchased my home because Anna encouraged me to take a second look.  After my initial walk through (and the last home of the day), I didn't think it was 'the house'.  However, Anna was honest and respectful when she
suggested a second look...She was right it was 'the house' for me, I just needed a good night's sleep and a revisit to what is now my favorite place to be!  Anna paid attention to so many pieces of me and my hopes for a new home, for that I am grateful...Thank You Anna!! 😊"
