Andrea Swetland Says Goodbye to the KGO 810 Radio Real Estate Clinic with Brian Copeland!

For the past two years, Andrea has had the pleasure of being a panelist on KGO 810 studios, discussing real estate in the Bay Area with host Brian Copeland.

She showcased the San Francisco real estate market during the 2003 season premiere of HGTV’s House Hunters in an episode entitled, “Coast to Coast”, and she’s been a top producing real estate agent since 2000…

How I learned to stop worrying and love low-inventory markets

A recurring and legitimate challenge for agents in a low-inventory market is homebuyer fatigue. Understandably, having your eighth offer rejected can take the wind out of a buyer’s sails, and it can be a strain on both buyer and agent.

However, Andrea Swetland of Pacific Union explains the importance of persistence: “Someone needs to tell discouraged homebuyers not to give up until they find their dream home — I am that person for them.”

In fact, one of Andrea’s buyers, fatigued out after six failed offers, came to talk to Andrea about dropping out. Andrea’s cheerleading at that meeting encouraged them to put in one more offer, and the seventh time was the charm — two days later, they were in escrow.
