Setting Personal and Professional Goals for Agents: There's a Path for That

There’s a Path for That: Meet Teri Moylan, Director of Growth & Operations 

Teri talks about her work as a real estate career coach at KBT:

I love watching people grow, and helping them achieve their goals. One of the key things that I do on a daily basis is help agents set their plan to reach their goals - their business plan - and to visualize what they want to attain in their real estate career.

I’m excited to be in my current role as Director of Growth and Operations with KBT Realty Group, because every day, I get to do what I enjoy most: coaching individual agents as they figure out what their perfect life is, and helping them achieve work-life balance with their own goals in mind.

To get up and running as a real estate agent, creating a business plan that can lead to success is an integral part of goal setting and work flow planning. Every agent must take the steps to achieve that plan.

My personal experience in real estate fuels my a ...

Top Ten Things to Ask Your Real Estate Agent

You've finally found your dream house. It has all the features you are looking for, from shiny hardwood floors to a walk-in closet and an amazing location - all for an irresistible price. But those aren’t the only factors that go into getting your perfect home. Here are ten crucial questions to ask your real estate agent before you sign on the dotted line.


Handy Checklist of Questions for Your Agent
How old is the roof?

This is one of the most important things to ask your real estate agent. The price of asphalt roofing replacement is extremely pricey and is more common in beach towns like Wilmington. So ask your real estate agent how old the roof is, because the last thing you want is to buy a home with a damaged, weathered-down roof.

What are the parking restrictions around the house?

Here are a few more questions about parking: How many parking permits do you as the homeowner obtain? And can you get more if you decide to throw a party? If you have a large fam ...

Meet the Broker: Ryan Naylor

Meet Broker/Realtor Ryan Naylor, the youngest member of the KBT Realty Group team, with seven month on the job, after passing his North Carolina state real estate exam on the first try. Ryan has already had success in real estate, with showings and closings.

Why real estate? As Ryan says, real estate is pretty much in the family: his mother is a Realtor, currently doing inside sales at KBT Realty; his father was a Wall Street commercial lender; Kirk Pugh, Ryan's step father, is also his Broker-in-Charge; and, his grandfather is a producing agent.

As a Millennial, the tech-friendly environment at Keller Williams is especially appealing. He sees the company rolling out new technology on a daily basis. The Kelle app puts tools at a seller's fingertips, and makes buyers' searches more efficient and focused. Ryan notes that technology can empower an agent with personalization and information that makes the best use of both real estate expertise and a clients' time.

Home Price Appreciation

The housing market has been great. Prices have been going up and there has been an affordability challenge discussed in the media. The home price appreciation has actually slowed somewhat. It looks like we are on track for about 5.6% for 2019. Granted, we are just into it, so that's from the first two months of the year. 

On a positive note, the median price of a house has actually fallen, just under 3%. At the same time mortgage rates have dropped about 3.5%, so we have actually had a little bit of easing in the affordability crunch. Homes have gotten easier to buy for ...
