The RGroup Report: December 2022

Creative & Strategic Financing
A Note From Angie 

Can you believe it? We’re down to the final month of the year!

2022 has been a roller coaster that started with a frenzy among adamant buyers striving to search for new homes. We can still vividly remember the intensity of bidding wars, and cheery celebration of sellers gaining top dollar. This has definitely been one of our busiest years ever. Then came a sudden shift in the market that pressed the break for skyrocketing transactions—we’ve come to a balancing market.

Through the highs, lows, successes, and challenges,
we’re still here—stronger and wiser.

We treasure everyone who’s been with us in this record-breaking journey. Apart from growing our sales volume to new heights (all thanks to your trust!), we feel happiest about how we were able to get involved with our community.

Our team loved being a part of events that empower, connect, and uplift others. We are proud sponsors of this year’s Area Professional Women’s Luncheon with no less than Lieutenant Governor Suzanne Crouch as keynote speaker. During the Keller Williams RED Day, we brightened up the day of residents at the Mason Health and Rehabilitation Center through a bouquet making activity. To help showcase our county, The RGroup also sponsored the Rock the Dock music festival to put a spotlight on local talent and our beautiful lakes.  And we will never forget how much fun we had building a “she” shed when we volunteered for the
Habitat for Humanity Women Build!🏼‍♀️

Acknowledging the importance of small businesses in elevating our economy, we featured 8 local businesses that we know and admire. (Get to know them in our At a Glance section below!) We likewise partnered with them for amazing giveaways to open an avenue for more people to get to know them and try out
their products/services.

Lastly, to show our abounding gratitude for our clients, we hosted an Ice Cream Social Client Appreciation Event, and helped make your shopping holiday merrier through our Black Friday Giveaway.

Looking back, we cannot help but feel overwhelmed with joy. We are able to give much because we have also received much. How blessed are we to be a part of a community built on love, appreciation, support and trust.

We are looking forward to making new meaningful connections, and be more engaged in moments that make a difference next year.

Happy holidays from The RGroup Real Estate!
With the continuous dipping of temperatures comes

We understand how you feel. With increasing rates flashing across news headlines, it is easy to feel daunted. Many house hunters are pushed to the sidelines, as their hopes of finally owning their dream homes start to fade because of the affordability gap.

But don’t let the rates stop you from pursuing greater goals. With guidance from seasoned real estate experts, you will find that buying a home now isn’t actually as elusive as you think. With strong negotiation skills and strategic financing solutions, you can rise above the rising rates.
