Well, our company, CENTURY 21 North Homes, is closing its Monroe office, for the "season". In this case, its the 'slow real estate market' season. Most of the agents, including myself, will be joining the Snohomish office just up the road.
Joining the two offices makes good sense in the current market. Things are noticeably slower overall in the local market and the expenses of two offices is, well... twice as much... if we can take the same agents and the same business and run everything out of one office, it just makes sense.
Of course, everyone would be happier if we had so much going on, and so many agents working, that we needed two offices... but that just isn't the case at this time.
My partner, who happened to be the manageing broker for the office, and I are both confident than in the next year or so there werill be another Monroe office (or even better, a Duvall office... since that is where I live). And, in the end it will probably be a better facility than the one we currently have.
Until then, my focus won't change a huge amount... I still work a lot in Duvall, Monroe, Sultan, Index, Gold Bar, and yes... Snhomish (and all through western washington, in fact). Of course, the message will change some... I'll no longer be the commercial real estate agent with an actual office in Monroe. But, Snohomish is close and I still own property in Monroe... so I am motivated to keep a closer eye than normal on the local market.
And, more immediately... I'm updating business cards, letterhead, websites, and my blog profile.
If you are one of our fellow agents in Monroe... well, we'll still be around and working with you! And, for you Snohomish agents... stop by and say "Hi" to your new neighbors. For clients, both current and prospective... we are still your Monroe and east county experts.
