"Hey Sheldon...Hows the real estate market here in Plain?"

Real Estate Agent with Windermere Real Estate NCW-Leavenworth

After I see one of my neighbors at The Plain Grocery Store, that is what I hear. I reply "It's busy as ever...thank goodness." And they say"REALLY?" "But I heard on (The Today Show,Good Morning America,Fox News,MSNBC..take your pick) that things are bad. Well, don't believe everything you hear or read. That little expression rings so true with local real estate markets. Real estate is LOCAL..not national or even regional as far as I can see. I'm no expert...but I'm seeing tons of interest in our area and in the Chelan/Douglas county real estate market in general. I am in the mode where I need to force myself to take a day off or I could be working every day. And I can't do that!! My wife and kids and boat need to see me once in a while. And I know I'm not alone..my co-workers at Windermere and at other offices around Leavenworth are just as busy(again...thank goodness!) Need to go for now. I have 2 Virtual Tours to do today and I need to turn on the irrigation...Summer is here!

It is so true that we all need to read past the headlines and not allow the media to form "our opinions" this business is what we all make of it. and Attitude is a huge factor.
