Welcome! CB Free LIVING Welcome to the first ever edition of Home Free! This magazine has been a vision of my wife’s (Ricki) for some time now. We knew that publishing a magazine would be no easy feat but when Ricki brought the idea to her team (Meredith Plummer and Sondra Wilson) she was met with surprising enthusiasm. Ricki had to ground their enthusiasm with the realization of how much work it really would take, but we truly do consider it a labor of love. CB Free Realty is a full-service Real Estate company and we pride ourselves on having ethical, knowledgeable agents and we wanted to give them a platform to educate and inform the public about all things Real Estate. This magazine is the voice of our company and our agents. The people and companies featured are not paid advertisers but people and companies we do business with in our trade. Scott Free, Owner, Broker CB Free Realty In my now 34 years of real estate, we have never had a seller’s market like this. Our inventory has never been this low, with properties going under contract the week they are listed and buyers paying over appraised value in cash. Builders are having a hard time pricing new builds due to the rising cost of materials. Yet, there seems like there is no end in sight, people need homes. So, this is exciting news for those selling and hopefully for our market overall once this phase passes. We hope this will increase or a least hold our comp prices stable for resale properties. After our last real estate recession, us veteran Realtors® look at good times a little differently; this ole farm boy is making hay while the sun is shining but saving for that inevitable rainy day. I want to take a minute to thank Ricki, Meredith and the whole CB Free Staff and Agents, and our graphic designer, Savanna Plummer for their help in putting this publication together. There have been a lot of extra hours and hard work to bring Ricki’s vision to life. During this process, we have found that many of them have hidden talents we didn’t even know about. Our hope for this magazine is that buyers and sellers will learn something about our market, the real estate buying and selling process and that we shed some light on who we are as REALTORS – there’s also some fluff. - Scott **The views expressed in this publication are solely those of the agents and employees of Coldwell Banker Free Realty and are not necessarily those of other Agents, Realtors®, Coldwell Banker and/or other Real Estate Companies.
