agent brenda: Who You Work with Matters...! - 07/24/23 01:28 PM

I hear myself say it a lot: "Who you work with matters".  It's not just a catchy phrase, it's the truth.  And with each residential real estate transaction - especially during these past few, extra-crazy years - it becomes more and more apparent that it's the absolute truth.  
Buying and/or selling a home is typically an individual's BIGGEST financial transaction. The great majority of consumers do utilize a real estate agent to help navigate the process but quite honestly, it baffles me that more people don't actually interview agents before choosing one that best suits their wants & needs. 
There are over 82,000 … (23 comments)

agent brenda: What's Poppin' in NY's 518 Real Estate Market? - 04/19/23 05:32 AM
Spring is OFFICIALLY here & with it, the real estate market that I anticipated in my last post is no longer a speculation (revisit it at Wintertime Market Update).  So what IS happening in New York's  Capital Region Real Estate Market this spring?  A LOT! 
Here are the details:
Is the market crashing?  NO!  Inventory is LOW! SUPER LOW!! This is a BIG topic of conversation & here are the numbers to back it up:   On Feb 21st, there were 1510 residential properties seeking buyers.  "We all" (i.e. our local real estate world) anticipated this number to climb as we moved into March … (5 comments)

agent brenda: The One About the Condo in Saratoga Springs, NY - 03/20/23 03:09 PM
73 Railroad Place, Saratoga Springs, NY
joins the 2023 list of SOLD properties! 
It would be easy to stop there & just report that the property sold in 2 days and for 102% of asking price.  But the REAL story is behind the data...  
Back in January, I was asked by some Active Rain ambassadors to present to the Tuesday Zoom group.  They wanted to learn more about Saratoga Springs.  I'm always up for sharing & looked at this as an opportunity to learn more about the group I was part of so of course, my answer was "Sure! I'm in!!".  And on … (13 comments)

agent brenda: What I Love About Scotia-Glenville, NY in Feb & Beyond - 02/27/23 04:59 AM
As February winds down, love is still in the air.  And it's not too late to share what I love about my hometown as part of the monthly challenge within our Active Rain community.  
The town of Glenville was incorporated in 1821, is directly across the Mohawk River from Schenectady &, most frequently, is accessed via the Western Gateway bridge. My family moved to Glenville in 1982 when Dad's employer, General Electric, closed a plant in Maine & transferred him to the main plant in Schenectady, NY.   An easy commute of 2.5 has made Glenville an obvious choice for many GE employees … (9 comments)

agent brenda: How to find good Customer Service in Real Estate - 10/10/22 06:38 AM
I have always been a "stickler" for customer service...  I'm a firm believer that no matter how big or how small the transaction, a customer should ALWAYS feel some genuine, human interaction and appreciation any time they interface with a business.  This expectation isn't limited to retail;  it should be felt in healthcare, the insurance industry, and countless others including my personal favorite:  Real Estate.  
This past weekend, I could actually devote many of its hours to things that I  wanted (& needed) to do and just a few to work.  I returned home from some errands noting that I had a … (7 comments)

It's a wrap... ! As is company tradition, we assembled this week to reflect on last year's business accomplishments.  This year's theme was fitting:  Regroup, Refocus & Recharge.  And we did so Zoom-style for obvious reasons.  
While it would be easy to focus on the challenges that we all dealt with during 2020, there were far too many successes to fall into that "rabbit hole"...
Miranda Real Estate Group can now say that it has helped over 10,000 homes change ownership and passed  the related $2 billion sales mark!  WOW!
