When Pandemic Bought Uncertainties
During the initial days of the coronavirus pandemic, many felt some uncertainties about the real estate industry. However, the pandemic opened up new opportunities to meet clients face to face. Apps like Zoom and Meet enabled clients to participate in consultation meetings or video tours of properties when physical visits were not permitted. Following the pandemic, Danielle has witnessed year over year growth, as it has solidified her goals in taking an individualized approach to how her clients wanted to be served and the ways d’aprile properties could make properties and information available to them.
Tackling the Challenges
Danielle feels the nationwide shortage of real estate became the biggest challenge of the last year. Additionally, the rising interest rates are also a cause of concern for the buyer. Danielle explains that tackling these issues will need another pivot.
She says, “Focusing on different ways to source properties for buyer clients and getting creative to help your sellers develop a plan, to sell their home to set them up for another purchase requires creativity, education on options, and a solid negotiator to help execute the best possible outcomes for the clients.
