Happy New Year! I hope 2023 is shaping up to be a fantastic year for you all. On the real estate front, it’s been a great start to the year after a very noticeable slowdown during the latter part of 2022. Thankfully we’re seeing buyers return to the market en masse, with very busy open houses and strong activity thus far. We have helped 6 clients sell their homes so far in 2023, and all received multiple offers! To borrow from a literary great, “reports of the demise of the Bay Area real estate market are greatly exaggerated.” All signs point to our local real estate market continuing steadily forward and doing what it’s done for decades despite the ebbs and flows of the macro economy - continue to grow.
On that positive note, we wanted to share with you all some very exciting news about our Team. Because of your trust, support, and of course, your business, The Chris Clark Team has been able to grow steadily over the years and help many clients with their home sales and purchases. To allow us to expand our ability to help more customers, we’ve made the exciting change to add a new partner to our team. As of 2023, I’m thrilled to announce that long-time Chris Clark Team member, trusted colleague, and superstar local REALTOR©, Mike Yohay will be joining us as a Principal of our team. Further, we will be re-branding to become the Clark + Yohay Group.
So what does this mean for you? It simply means that you’ll have the benefit of having two great agents working together for you! Chris and Mike will be working as a team with all of our clients with Derek continuing to drive our daily operations, which means we’ll have additional bandwidth, flexibility, and availability to make our customer service even better. Some of you may already know Mike as we have worked together on a fair amount of transactions over the last few years, and he’s assisted many of you during times I wasn’t available. For those of you who don’t know Mike yet, I know you’ll love him.
Lastly, I want to extend my deepest gratitude for your trust and friendship over the years. This change is a significant professional achievement for me personally. And I would not have achieved any success without you - the people who trusted me with their most valuable asset.
