JAMES CARLTON LONGO
A BIT ABOUT ME
In James's own words ~ "when you've seen real estate markets boom, bust, languish and occasionally remain stable; you come at things from knowledge of the past and a precient sense of the future ~ 'cause there's almost nothing you can't smell coming 'round the bend. The question I'm now asked daily is "how much longer do you expect this seller's market to last?" My thinking ~ throughout 2022; after that ~ hard to say. First time homebuyers are the hardest hit with these conditions 'cause they're 'buying high' without the benefit of 'selling high.' It has not, however, deterred first timers from jumping into the pool with astonishing vigor.
While I enjoy working with buyers ~ improving and staging homes combined with razor sharp photography and highly effective marketing is the stuff of only the very best professionals. That end of the industry requires experience, vision, resources and a fine-tuned sense of what consumers want. Outside of being a calm, cool and effective negotiator of all things real estate ~ ‘ultimate marketing’ is my best skill set ~ and an entirely necessary one to ensure that I secure my selling clientele top dollar for their properties.
