Testimonials Page

Jules Harper was introduced to my wife and me over four years ago by a real estate agent we had consulted for the sale of our home (from which we had already moved). Because of the real estate crash, ours was a short sale, and the agent told us that Jules Harper was the best he knew in that business. My wife and I met Jules on very short notice because our situation was dire. We had just had a lease purchase contract fall through. We needed to sell the home extremely quickly or we would be responsible for capital gains tax and a number of monthly payments that we could not afford. Jules met us the very day we called him. We had lunch and were immediately impressed with everything about him. It was apparent that he was an expert in his field. We hired him immediately. Though Jules was an expert in his field, that expertise was not at all what inspired this letter of recommendation. What inspired this letter was his work ethic and care for our situation and family. The day the house was listed (December of 2012), we got a contract. We were thrilled. But we soon learned that there was a title dispute on the home. This issue would persist and create financial strain for my family and me. Jules worked so hard to resolve the title issue with two banks that were slow (or refused) to respond to phone calls, emails, and letters. The mortgage was then sold to another servicer. This pattern repeated itself three times as the mortgage sold upon nearing a resolution. Jules worked as hard each setback as he had on the first day – harder in fact as the complexity and work required of him increased with each new twist. I literally cannot put into words how much of a hard worker, expert in his field, and (most importantly) a good person this man is. To say that I highly recommend Jules Harper is such an understatement. He is a great person who will work for you even at his own expense. Stuart and Leslie V.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for getting great results in selling my home. From the moment you were recommended to me and I first met you and your team, I knew that you were a cut above other REALTORS. Before our first appointment, you researched the neighborhood home sales and specific information about my home. I was also happy to have the information to guide me in preparing my home for sale. Your advice allowed me to be strategic on improvements that increased the appeal of the home and added maximum value. I developed a personal plan to budget for continued payments as the home was being marketed. Now I see that had you told me what I wanted to hear, I would not have been as prepared as l was. And now we know, your knowledge of the market was spot on. During this process, a few offers came in, including an offer for lease to buy. The information you provided helped me make wise decisions. Your availability throughout the process not only kept my anxiety down, but allowed us to respond in a timely manner to each situation. Seeing and knowing that you had my best interest at heart contributed to making the process of selling my home less stressful than it might have been and certainly one with a very favorable outcome. Your counsel, experience, and results make you the BEST REALTOR I have ever dealt with. At every opportunity I will recommend you and The Four Walls Group at Keller Williams Realty to friends and acquaintances without reservation. Betty Cooper

REALTORS® Confidence Index Survey: August 2018 Highlights

The REALTORS® Confidence Index (RCI) [1] survey gathers monthly information from REALTORS® about local real estate market conditions, characteristics of buyers and sellers, and issues affecting homeownership and real estate transactions.[2] This report presents key results about market transactions from August 2018. View and download the full report here.

Market Conditions and Expectations

  • The REALTORS® Buyer Traffic Index registered at 57 (64 in August 2017).[3]

  • The REALTORS® Confidence Index—SixMonth Outlook Current Conditions registered at 58 for detached single-family, 48 for townhome, and 46 for condominium properties. An index above 50 indicates market conditions are expected to improve.

  • Eighty-five percent of respondents reported that home prices remained constant or rose in August 2018 compared to levels one year ago (86 percent in August 2017).

Characteristics of Buyers and Sellers

  • First-time buyers accounted for 31 percent of sales (31 percent in August 2017).
  • Vacation and investment buyers comprised 13 percent of sales (15 percent in August 2017).
  • Sales of distressed properties (foreclosed or sold as a short sale) accounted for three percent of sales (four percent in August 2017).
  • Cash sales made up 20 percent of sales (20 percent in August 2017).

  • REALTORS® report “low inventory” and “interest rate” as the major issues affecting transactions in August 2018.

About the RCI Survey

  • The RCI Survey gathers information from REALTORS® about local market conditions based on their client interactions and the characteristics of their most recent sales for the month.
  • The August 2018 survey was sent to 50,000 REALTORS® who were selected from NAR’s 1.3 million members through simple random sampling and to 8,386 respondents in the previous three surveys who provided their email addresses.
  • There were 4,639 respondents to the online survey which ran from September 1-11, 2018. The survey’s overall margin of error at the 95 percent confidence level is one percent. The margins of error for subgroups and sample proportions of below or above 50 percent are larger.
  • NAR weighs the responses by a factor that aligns the sample distribution of responses to the distribution of NAR membership.

[1] Thanks to George Ratiu, Managing Director, Housing and Commercial Research and Gay Cororaton, Research Economist for their data analysis and comments to the RCI Report.

[2] Respondents report on the most recent characteristics of their most recent sale for the month.

[3] An index greater than 50 means more respondents reported conditions as “strong” compared to one year ago than “weak.” An index of 50 indicates a balance of respondents

who viewed conditions as “strong” or “weak.”

[4] The difference in the sum of percentages to the total percentage of sellers who offered incentives is due to rounding.
