1987. As a nation we were still high on the success of the Eighties. The Dotboom was in full swing and a Dotbust seemed impossible. Interest rates had just descended from 12% down to an amazing 8.5% and California’s population was exploding- deepening our conviction that prices could only go up- indefinitely. This was the New Economy and I was loving it.
In the following years I have counseled frantic/excited/happy home sellers through two and a half cycles of boom and bust. The old timers used to tell me that, soon, the “normal” market will return and everything will be easier. Now, as an old timer myself, I realize they were LYING- there is no “normal” real estate market. Every cycle brings it’s challenges and unique dramas. This is the New Reality and I am loving it!
So, how do I celebrate my 25 years of Real Estate? Some of you know that my Twitter Bio says, “I take my real estate business very seriously. Me? Not so much.” In that vein, I bring you, “The 25 Years of Hair”.
