At Windermere, we are fortunate to have Matthew Gardner as our Chief Economist. In fact, we are one of the only real estate companies in the country to have such a well-respected expert sitting in this role. Not only is Matthew an asset to Windermere brokers and their clients, but he is a coveted resource within the industry. He is often called upon by major media outlets and industry think tanks for his insights.
Every quarter Matthew produces The Gardner Report which re-caps various statistics and predictions for all of Western Washington. What is so great about this is you can read about where you live and also get a glimpse into other markets that may pique your interest.
Read the full Western Washington report here. Additionally, since Windermere spans the entire Western Region of the United States, he also provides this same report for Washington (Western, Central & Eastern), Oregon, Idaho, California (Southern & Northern), Utah, Colorado, Nevada, and Hawaii (Maui & the Big Island).
There has been a lot of state-to-state moves over the last few years. Many of these moves have been prompted by retirement, second home purchases, and remote working due to COVID changes to the workforce. This is a great way to research other markets you may be interested in. Also, I am connected to the Windermere network of brokers and can easily find you a reputable broker who would be a stellar match for your real estate needs outside of my normal market area.
Further, I am also a part of a national and international network of real estate companies for referrals outside of the Windermere footprint. This is through Windermere’s affiliation with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World. Bottom line, I can help provide information and can help align you with a trusted real estate advisor anywhere in the world. Please reach out of I can help!
Huge thanks to everyone who donated to my office’s Summer Food Drive! Collectively we provided 2,608 meals for our neighbors in need! We presented a check for $3,400 and 888 pounds of food to the Volunteers of America Western Washington food banks last week, and that’s all because of you! Thank you!
