Happy Holidays! What a year this has been! As we navigate from the pandemic, the real estate world continued to bring unprecedented events. Appraisers became overbooked, home inspectors schedules were bursting at the seams, insurance industry saw a change, purchase offers were still competing to be the one selected, and lenders ramped up to keep pace with the volume. Many had to realign resources to keep in pace with volume. There was not one dull moment.
As I take a moment to reflect back on the previous articles submitted from our affiliate peers, and the advice given, there is one theme, one message, one word, that repeated itself – RELATIONSHIP. That is what it is all about, having relationships with each other. Communicating, and getting to know new people.
It has been my honor, and privilege, to serve all the affiliates this year! I hope as you read the Affiliates Corner you gleaned some valuable insight that you were able to apply to your business, and it reaped a reward for you!
Several have said, “in 2022 our business focus is growth.”
Several industries over the last two years were doing what they could to keep pace, and now feel the breath to focus and grow. Becoming an affiliate member of Greater Tampa REALTORS® should be first on your growth list. This will expand your bandwidth, and increase your exposure. In the end, you will come out with deeper and new relationships that will enrich you and your business.
As we bring 2021 to a close and edge closer to 2022, it is my hopes that every affiliate member, and to those that are thinking of becoming a member, have a happy and safe holiday season! To you and yours – Cheers to a successful and prosperous 2022!
