1987 brings back fond memories of working along side some local real estate legends, some still breaking records, some no longer with us. Boutique firms are nothing new. It's how I started out all those years ago, working for a woman no less, who grew to be the leading company of her time & place. Fast forward 30 years and I find myself again, with the leading company of my time & place. The decades have been telling. I've experienced the giant corporations with their slick marketing materials, convention center expos and thousands of followers; they have a right to be here too. Then there's the independent guy (or gal) who takes a different approach, one of quality over quantity, one of substance over slick, one of personal relationships. The choice is all yours. And while I do appreciate Inman's article about independent brokerages sharing their secrets to success, I'm here to tell you, we've been doing it for decades, proudly so. 2016 was another banner year and Windhill managed to move more real estate in Ipswich than any other firm. More importantly, we built relationships every step of the way. We expect 2017 to be even busier. I still believe this is a relationship business. It's personal. Choose wisely.

Buyers! Pay attention! Being in your shoes, in today's real estate market especially, requires an enormous amount of patience and perseverance, more than I've ever seen in my 35 years. You're putting a lot of trust in the hands of the agent you choose to represent you. This relationship goes far beyond crossing the threshold together and requires an incredible amount of professionalism, interpersonal skills, organization, polish and expertise on the part of the agent. I have an inside view and after all this time, I'm still impressed with the fortitude of every buyer and every agent on my team; it really is remarkable. Why should you care? Because ONE of the jobs on the shoulders of your representative is to protect your earnest money deposit. Signing a Contract to Purchase binds you legally and the parameters in that contract require close monitoring and compliance of specific dates and terms. Make sure you hire an EXPERIENCED REALTOR®, not just someone with a real estate license; there's a big difference. I've seen buyers' deposits in jeopardy because untrained salespeople (from other cooperating companies) are all too casual about the contract parameters.
