Where is the market going and how can we make sure our business survives? In this episode Alissa interviews her Broker, Connie Kyle, who has decades of experience in real estate from being an agent to a broker to an office manager. Connie has worked through several recessions and many peaks and valleys and gives us the much needed wisdom and insight into handling those fluctuations. By taking a look at history, we can better prepare for the future. Is it better to be over prepared and conservative when the future is uncertain? Are we headed for a recession after the last 2 years of a housing boom? This time in history is unlike any other and we’ve never wished for a crystal ball more than now. The good news is Connie reminds us that real estate is a sustainable business and even with the rise and falls; it always comes back. People need shelter and they will find a way to make it happen even when the interest rates rise. During tough market conditions, Connie says the strong agents get stronger! So tune into this episode to get an overview of the historic trends in the real estate market & how to set yourself up for success.
