With less than two months left in the year, I think we can all easily say … “Where did 2021 go?” And I have no doubt the remaining time will fly by in a happy holiday blur. But as we enter the season of giving thanks, I have no trouble recalling the highlights. You are among them! Whether we see each other regularly or only on social media, I’m grateful for your support and friendship. I love what I do and those two things help keep me going, whether through easy-breezy markets or the more challenging ones. Below is our most recent Market Update. You may not think the holidays are a great time to buy or sell, but actually there are distinct advantages. Let me know if you’d like to talk about them!
