Years ago I had a friend that emailed me full of excitement. "Jared!  We are ready to buy a home!  We're pre-approved for $400,000 and here are 5 homes we want to see please." All 5 homes were right around that $400,000 mark.   Knowing that they had struggled to save enough for a down payment and...

One of the most frequent questions we, as Realtors® in Fort Wayne, get asked is "how is the real estate market?" Early in the spring it was white hot.  Anything that was listed in the Northwest and Southwest Allen County School Districts was selling in days.   We had a few clients that wanted to ...
One complaint we often hear from folks we work with is that their previous Realtor® didn't communicate well with them.   "They stuck the sign in the yard, took some pictures, and we didn't hear from them for months." Hearing this enough times early in our careers actually helped us to become bett...
