Getting Past the Rain

Getting Past the Rain

Torrential rains and mortgage rates hikes in Los Angeles and Orange County amidst the past several weeks didn’t stop many of our buyers and sellers from making big moves and stepping up to the plate to get homes under contract already in 2023.

The overall numbers reflected differently, as sales volume was down drastically year-over-year in January.  LA County transactions were down 43.6% to 3,097 in January. OC County transactions were down 41.1% to 1,291 in January. Source: CoreLogic.

Despite challenging market conditions, our team has been able to score some great deals for our buyers and achieve great results for our sellers. Low supply, coupled with a plethora of buyers with healthy reserves and the ability to buy down mortgage interest rates, have allowed us to find incredible residential housing opportunities for many of our clients. We look forward to closing out the first quarter stronger than ever.

Key Differentiators

The Power of a Team

Working with a team gives you with tremendous benefits as a Buyer or Seller, as opposed to relying on one individual agent. When you work with a team, you get an extra set of eyes (or more) looking out for you; you also benefit from having multiple perspectives and more “thinking outside the box.” When faced with challenges and difficult decisions in your transaction, there are more problem solvers and significantly more combined years of experience working on your behalf. Having a team also prevents there from being a bottleneck (as a solo agent can oftentimes become), since agents are often the gatekeepers for disseminating information and communications between buyers & sellers.

At Highland Premiere, our single focus is on our clients and we keep each other accountable for delivering superior customer service. Vivian & I work together, equally on every single transaction. Our agents are also partnered up on every deal. We have dedicated, support personnel to help complete activities correctly and efficiently. You can expect your experience to be seamless and consistent from start to finish. Our team approach helps to ensure a smooth and successful transaction!
