A Word from 2021 Atlanta REALTORS® President Cynthia Lippert: 

"We see the increase in sales as a positive sign, that even though we’re facing some real challenges with low inventory levels, agents are finding creative solutions to ease some of the burden for consumers," stated Cynthia Lippert, 2021 President of the Atlanta REALTORS® Association. “The importance of understanding the market is paramount to making all of this work.”

 

Asked more and more frequently for her advice to fatigued buyers and contemplating sellers, these days Lippert analogizes this unique housing marketplace to a complex puzzle. “I see agents rather skillfully connecting opportunity with need, sometimes problem-solving several steps ahead and looking heavily to their networks for solutions to piece it all together. This is real ingenuity at work, and it’s always been at the heart of what we do. This is what REALTORS® do everyday, and we’re just stepping up our game to meet the challenges of the day.”
