Joanna on Today's Market


"The Real Estate Market in 2021 was the continouation of the strong momentum carried over form 2020. Mortgage Rates hovering at near record-lows fueled demand. As the country slowely emerged from COVID-19 lockdowns, buyer redefind "the perfect home" and expanded the lenghts they will go to find it. The pandemic and the work-from-home flexibiliy changed people's desire of what is the right home -whether it was larger home with space for home office or moving further out from expensive areas to seek greater affordability. This change in preference also fueled housing demand. The price of homes reached new highs as buyers competed for limited number of available homes. For homeowners though, it was a Bonanza with new highs in home equity and record profits from sales. Buyers understand they need to be aggressive with their offers to be able to contract. With the right price and the maximum amount of marketing and exposure, I am confident I can help sellers net the highest possible sales price in 2022. This year is a good year to sell and buy."


Why HomeSmart Connect?


When Joanna had to make a decision which real estate firm to affiliate with, she said, "I had to have the best of both worlds. I needed an internationally recognized brand, but I also needed a boutique office right in the heart of Arlington Heights as a center of north-west suburbs. HomeSmart Connect was the only firm that could offered me both. I tell my clients, working for HomeSmart Connect offers me marketing opportunities that small firms could only dream of, is kind like having the rich uncle with deep pockets."
