Merry Christmas 2016 and Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! We began this journey in 2010 with a leap of faith, a hard work ethic, solid educational & skill foundations, a passion for real estate, and a serious pledge to take care of our customers. Each year our business has grown as we’ve helped more clients buy, sell, or build, and 2016 was no exception. We’ve worked hard to help our buyers navigate a fast-paced seller’s market, invested in targeted advertising for sellers, and improved our skills with continuing education (including Nick who earned his Managing Broker license)!

Thank you to the team of professionals who work alongside us to make this job possible–loan officers, title companies, closing agents, inspectors, appraisers, builders, other Realtors, and our locally owned brokerage. Last but not least, a huge thank you to the buyers and sellers we’ve had the privilege to represent, and to the many friends & neighbors who’ve given referrals–we couldn’t do this without you! 

Merry Christmas from the Kundes!

A few years ago Nick returned from a year in Iraq to a struggling pharmaceutical industry and Valerie was adjusting to the effects of thyroid cancer treatment.  We took a long look at our situation and made a huge leap of faith into something we’d always wanted to do–real estate!  It wasn’t a blind leap; together we had a great combination of skills, education, experience, and a hard work ethic.  Many people thought we were crazy, but there is risk inherent in every job and the benefits were great–we’d be doing something we loved, meeting & helping people, working from home, and more time with our family.

Agents must affiliate with a brokerage, so we chose John Farrell of Zion Properties for his personable, casual, professional style.  We loved the local business (who wants to pay for national chain advertising?) and the opportunity to run our own business, set our own commissions, and find our own clients.  This year we’ve helped buy, sell, or build 19 homes and/or lots, plus 5 more are under contract to close in January!  Click “home” and scroll through to see a few of the homes we’ve been able to help buy/sell.  We have 3 beautiful homes listed that still need new owners, so check our featured listings if you have anyone in mind.  We also have clients who have not yet found the perfect home, so let us know if you’re thinking about selling yours, even if it’s not ready to list quite yet.

Our favorite part of the business (besides showing houses) has been meeting many people that we otherwise might never have known.  We have been very blessed, and we’re so grateful for the success we’ve had this year.  Thank you for all the referrals–we appreciate all the friends, family, and co-workers you’ve sent our way!  We wish you a Merry Christmas and health, happiness, and success in the New Year!
