Not once, but twice in this past week, the media came my way asking for information about the real estate market. Not to toot my own horn (okay, I am tooting my own horn, but sometimes it is warranted), but this has become a regular occurrence over the last several years. Take a look at my Press Page to view all the articles in local and national media outlets as well as watch clips of my television appearances.
Last week, I was interviewed in person by Nicholas (Nick) Horrock at my office. He's now a reporter with the Connection Newspapers, a string of local papers covering various cities and towns throughout Northern Virginia. We spent about half an hour discussing Northern Virginia real estate. During the conversation I also learned that Nick used to cover the White House, had flown numerous times on Air Force One and traveled around the world with several presidents -- Wow! And now he sat in my RE/MAX office in McLean interviewing me.
His article about Northern Virginia real estate was published on June 21st. Here's a link to read the full article:
Then, just yesterday, I was contacted by Cory Jo Vasquez at RE/MAX International Headquarters in Denver, CO. Cory is the Senior Public Relations Manager for all of RE/MAX. She's contacted me several times in the past after she's gotten media inquiries directed to RE/MAX. This time Cory was looking for someone to share their thoughts on cash buyers and how they're affecting the real estate marketplace with a reporter for TheMReport.com. TheMReport is a website that describes itself as "News and strategies for the evolving mortgage marketplace."
Although I was out with a buyer client yesterday (who's placing an offer on a house today), I told Cory that I would respond to the reporter as soon as possible. Knowing reporters are on tight deadlines, I called Alyse Rzemek around 6:30 p.m. and we discussed real estate and my thoughts on cash buyers and investors. Imagine my surprise when the article was already published on the website before I went to sleep last night.
