How do you look back at 2021?
2020-2021 defined the term “unprecedented” in so many ways. The slogan that I used to take for granted which can be seen on the sides of many luxury real estate complexes says “live, work , and play.” This took center stage and every person started to prioritize what was important to them. Many realized that it all starts at home, and with that, the real estate market picked up steam from 2020 and did not stop all year in 2021. At the end of every day, every client I spoke to repurposed and reimagined their home to truly be their sanctuary. Our homes are no longer viewed as just houses – they are havens that help shape our lives and our day to day experiences.
How will 2022 be different if at all?
On a daily basis I am speaking to clients from the Bay area, Los Angeles County, and many from out of state who are seeking a piece of our beautiful OC coastline to call home. This example is one reason I expect to see the demand for luxury real estate in our (very special) corner of the world continue to escalate.
Most important piece of advice you have ever received for success?
“The harder you work, the luckier you get, but don’t forget to stop and smell the roses.” I took that advice both figuratively and literally. We have a beautiful bed of roses at our house, and I always take time out to stop and smell them. I count my blessings every day and I don’t take anything – large or small - for granted.
