Kerry Smith, of the Florida Realtor Association, recently published an article titled “NAR’s 2021 Buyer-Seller Report: Moving Earlier, Selling Quicker” offering summary and perspective to the National Association of Realtors®’ 2021 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers, a yearly report – now in its 40th year – that analyses demographics, preferences and experiences of buyers and sellers across America.
Kerry states, “Between July 2020 and June 2021, U.S. homes sold at a record pace. However, many owners didn’t stay in their home as long, with average tenure dropping from 10 years in last year’s report to eight years this year. Still, 9 out of 10 buyers (87%) and sellers (90%) used an agent or broker.”
The agents are Olde Florida Realty are equipped to help support any Buyer or Seller in the current market and ready to take on what changes come next.
The backbone of our diverse yet connected team are brothers Dan and Marty Carmody, who have together sold over 100 million dollars of real estate in Martin County, but more importantly, share a family history in Martin County that reaches back over four decades.
Around them they have compiled a group of strong real estate professionals whose diverse histories throughout Southern Florida bring a unique set of skills, knowledge, and experience to the team. There’s Mike, who worked as a commercial fishing captain after his years in the US Coast Guard, Maryellen, who hails from California and was the Director of Human Resources and Marketing at a local law firm, and her husband, Bob, who started his highly-successful career alongside his wife at AT&T and has more recently been awarded the prestigious “Community Service Award” by the Martin County Board of Realtors.
There’s also Jill, one of the members of the first graduating class of South Fork High in Martin County, Jeanne, who relocated from Long Island to pursue her love of Martin County’s variety of outdoor recreation, and Jeff, who was born and raised on the Treasure Coast and has been involved with luxury real estate for most of his life.
And let’s not forget Wendy, who has worked in interior design and with some of Florida’s premier custom builders, as well as as a mortgage broker and financial advisor, or Jeri, who grew up in Stuart and has worked in the customer-driven environments of 4-star Marriott hotels, or Jane, whose professional sales and design experience hails from her years working in the ski-resort town of Vail, Colorado.
