Leveraging Market Stats Webinar with Miami Realtors

Miami Realtors has a phenomenal webinar series that is hosted by our VP of Communications, Chris Umpierre, and a different Miami Realtors Leader every month. I had the honor of co-hosting the webinar for the third time! We went over the most recent available market statistics and dissected what was happening in our South Florida Real Estate Market. As a real estate broker who helps people buy, sell and invest in Miami real estate, it is important to marry my experience in the marketplace with the overall sales data for our specific market in order to have full understanding and context on the market in order to properly advise our clients and customers. When it comes to real estate, ignorance is NOT bliss. The more we know, the more we are able to make knowledgeable and strategic decisions in our businesses and protect our customers while transacting. I pride myself in always being a student of the industry and I encourage my fellow real estate professionals to do the same. It is how we remain knowledgeable, sharp and informative resulting in providing quality service and always being of value to our clients and customers.
