It’s officially spring and while the temperatures hesitantly begin climbing upward, I can without a doubt say that I’m ready to ditch the bitter cold and snow for sunshine and May flowers. With springtime, also comes a sense of renewal and beginning as we sweep out the old and look forward to the new. It’s no wonder so many people begin looking to buy homes during this time of year.

Alas, #polarvortex and #paxstorm are not so distant memories and winter is still among us for at least a few more weeks. We turned to the National Association of Realtors for its January existing-home sales report to get a pulse on the Northeast and other regions of the country.

Buying or selling a home is obviously one of the most exciting, challenging and emotional things any of us will ever be lucky enough to do.

Slideshow: 6 of San Francisco’s Most Beautiful Homes

Our President & CEO Budge Huskey and other top Coldwell Banker leaders are out west in San Francisco this weekend for the 2013 National Association of Realtors conference. While we’re currently headquartered out of Madison, NJ, we actually started out over 107 years ago in San Francisco after the “Great Earthquake of 1906″.

We’re paying an homage to our San Francisco roots this weekend at the NAR conference, and I couldn’t think of better way to highlight our original ‘hometown’ by showcasing 6 of San Francisco’s most beautiful homes.

Grand Rapids Michigan is the Comeback Kid

Don’t we all love an underdog? From Rocky to the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team to Butler in recent editions of March Madness. But in real estate, allow this to be the third installment of our love affair with the “comeback kid” – Grand Rapids, Michigan.

My Take on the February Report from the National Association of Realtors

Today, the National Association of Realtors released its monthly report for February on the housing market.  I was really encouraged reading through it.  Yes, existing home sales dropped slightly (by just .06 percent), but we have to remember what was going on during this time – snow, snow and more snow!  I know that I [...]
