Charles Cherney Team at Curaytor Excellence

Curaytor powers our website and marketing. The 2018 Curaytor Excellence Conference was held in Boston in mid-October, and the entire Charles Cherney Team was in attendance. Wonderful to be with and learn from top agents from all across North America.

Checking in with Charles

The  number of homes for sale in Cambridge and Somerville has increased. And not everything is selling right away with multiple offers. Is the market shifting? It's too soon to say. I think the jury will be out until the spring market of 2019. Given that the average sale price in both cities is over 100%, even a cooler market will be expensive on average. Check out my Q3 2018 Market Report for more information.

Grateful for the opportunity to attend the Curaytor Excellence Conference in Mid-October with my team. Keynote address by Phil M. Jones - about the power of the words we use - a conference highlight.

In late October, I attended a wedding with my wife and our daughter in Easton, Maryland. Good to know my one suit still fits! Great to get away for a few days. That said, it's always nice to come home.

My Vespa is now in winter storage. Storing my scooter and putting back the clock an hour and turning on the heat are all signs November is here and the holidays are coming.
