This time of year, closing out one and welcoming another, it’s natural to reflect on the past and project toward the future.

To say 2021 was a roller coaster year for all of us would be an understatement. I am proud to say, our number of happy clients increased over 87% from 2020’s closed transactions! As many closings as White Diamond had, I’d venture to guess there were 3 or 4 times that many offers written. With such low inventory and so many buyers the market has been fiercely competitive this year to say the least! As frustrating as the market has been to navigate, when you have a team of professionals always looking out for their clients, chances are there will still be a happy ending.

Looking forward to 2022, I’m very excited to say we here at White Diamond will be in growth mode! January 15th marks my two-year anniversary as Broker for this amazing company and I’m ready to open the doors to agents eager to jump start their profession in real estate! Details to come, but in February I will be offering a three-part workshop that will dive deeply into what is involved with getting licensed and starting a path toward a highly successful real estate career. If you or someone you know is interested in more information please email

I want to thank each and every one of our clients, customers, colleagues, and business partners for helping make White Diamond a growing and influential presence in our local community! From our family to yours, we wish you peace and joy during the holiday season and in the year to come.
