Leaving 2012 behind, Southern California Realtor Kathy Doyle looks forward to a bright and properous 2013.
What do you see as your company’s greatest success in 2012?
2012 was a wonderful year for Kathy Doyle Estates. We represented fantastic buyers in the luxury Beverly Hills and Malibu real estate markets, and listed several amazing properties from Malibu to Santa Barbara. We sold premiere properties on Rodeo Drive, and listed several incredible Malibu beach estates. Our ranch properties are among the most exclusive in Southern California, and we are really excited with our success in Malibu and Beverly Hills real estate this year. We also listed beautiful architectural properties designed by famed architects, Doug Burdge and David Hertz. Overall it was a fantastic year and 2013 looks even brighter.
What do you see as some of the biggest opportunities in the coming year ahead?
The opportunities in 2013 real estate are fantastic and numerous. At Kathy Doyle Estate we will be listing several new beachfront Malibu properties in the coming months. Look for breaking news from our beautiful Ranch Estate on the Santa Ynez wine trail, and expect an expanding presence in the Malibu real estate and Beverly Hills real estate worlds. In Southern California real estate we expect a lot of new action from multi-national investors and folks looking for beautiful estates with Malibu and Beverly Hills zip codes. Kathy Doyle Estates will remain a top firm for Malibu and Beverly Hills real estate.
What changing market aspects will have the greatest impact on the way you conduct business in 2013?
With the market picking up quickly we expect to be extremely busy. Luxury zip codes such as Beverly Hills and Malibu are really picking up again, and we expect a lot of new interest from foreign investors interested in gated estates and beachfront property. We expect more buyers on the market and faster sales activity. Don’t wait on putting the offer on your dream home in 2013!
What is it about you and your company that sets you apart from the rest?
Kathy Doyle Estates stands out for our unique marketing that keeps a keen eye on design, showing off the homes to their fullest potential, without a lot of other distractions. We have a broad advertising presence and it stands out in the Malibu and Beverly Hills real estate markets! Another key difference at Kathy Doyle Estates is our customer service: each and every client is valued as our most important and we go above and beyond to help buyers and sellers have the most seamless real estate experience possible. We are dedicated to our customers, and they come first in our business every single day of the week.
What are the most important questions a client should ask themselves before selecting an agent in your market?
When looking at the Malibu and Beverly Hills real estate markets, a client should ask themselves some key questions before they chose which agent they want to represent them or their property. First of all, how much LOCAL experience does their agent have, do they know the ins and out of the community, culture, and market from block to block? Have they listed and sold homes in the key areas you are looking to buy or sell? What is their reputation in the community, and are they involved? What is their reputation in town, do they get lots of referrals? Have they sold to high profile members of the community? What are their reviews like? Do they go above and beyond for each and every client, or will you be a low priority among many? It all comes down to personal attention and knowing the ins and outs as well as having the connections to act quickly in 2013. All of these questions are important when finding the right agent for Malibu and Beverly Hills real estate.
