Tammy Mazzocco got her real estate license in 1995. Before that date, Tammy worked as a secretary for nine realtors. She then graduated to a management position where the took care of a group of condominiums. So then Tammy figured out that she could make a lot more money selling real estate as opposed to managing it.
The real estate market in Ohio has been very good in 2016, mainly because the job market has been very active and mortgage interest rates have been low. When people are working, and prospects are good economically, they are more in a position to purchase houses. Unfortunately, the interest rates took a hit in November, around election time when interest reached the 4% level.
Then there suddenly appeared a housing shortage at about the same time interest rates went up. There were still lots of prospective buyers looking, but with fewer houses available, they just had to look faster.
Tammy Mazzocco (https://www.trulia.com/profile/tammy-mazzocco-agent-johnstown-oh-zgwx6bks/overview) doesn’t let too many market changes set her back too much because she can’t do much to change them. What she does do is to make friends with the people. She admits that she is a shy person, so she has to work at starting conversations.
In real estate, there are going to be many changes all the time, but the agents have to rise above all that. Tammy Mazzocco has been able to do that by keeping active and staying busy. There is always someone to call, an email to follow up on, and a new lead to follow up on.
Tammy Mazzocco also likes to spend time doing research. She not only receives leads from some of the commercial online sources, but she uses detailed demographics to learn about trends and property value fluctuation so prospective buyers can be informed. According to Mapquest.com, the Cleveland market had a great year in 2016, but time marches on, and every tool helps.
