This time of year, with the approach of Thanksgiving, we tend to reflect on the things in our life that we are grateful for. We all face challenges from time to time, and it is very easy to get wrapped up in busy work and life schedules. Making some time to take a breath and give thanks for the things in your life that you do treasure can help to put things in perspective. The members of the Centre County Association of REALTORS have plenty to be thankful for.
Our market is stable: Here is one example in the 3rd quarter of 2014, we have
closed 393 residential transactions in Centre County vs. 374 in the 3rd quarter of
2013. (Data provided by Centre County Association of REALTORS MLS). Homes
are selling and interest rates remain low.
Our market area is growing: Many of our members are expanding their
service into neighboring counties. Those agents that have familiarity with areas
of Mi. in, Huntingdon, Clear. eld, etc. are able to reach further to provide their
expertise to new clients.
Our membership is cooperative: Real estate sales is a competitive business.
However, the professionals serving as REALTORS in this area maintain respectful
and cooperative relationships with each other. These relationships strengthen
our network and allow us to better serve our clients.
Our membership is generous with their community: The majority of our
REALTOR and Business Partner members are involved in a variety of organizations
to which they donate their time, expertise and energy. Our members serve on
boards and committees and volunteer for events and service in all corners of the
county and beyond. They are invested in this community and can be seen at all
levels of involvement.

your appreciation by taking some time to help someone else? There are many
organizations and groups in the area that can use your time and talents. If you
don’t know where to start, have a chat with your REALTOR of choice and get
