On Thursday, February 16th, the Atlanta REALTORS® Association hosted the 12th annual Real Estate Outlook featuring Lawrence Yun, the Chief Economist who oversees the Research group at the National Association of REALTORS®. This year's Real Estate Outlook highlighted an analysis of market trends from 2022 and provided an informative discussion by our top producer panel to propel our focus onto success in 2023.

This year's Real Estate Outlook was an excellent opportunity to hear from one of the nation's leading real estate market researchers and our incredible top producer panel. Yun shared his predictions for the real estate market in 2023, including an anticipated rise in the market surrounding Marietta which has been listed first on the markets to watch in 2023. If you missed this event, you can still view highlights from Lawrence's report in this presentation.
