Featured Agent: Kit Fitzgerald of Red Barn Real Estate

Each Friday, we feature one agent who is making a difference in their market through their insight and commitment to giving back to their community. This week's Featured Agent is Kit Fitzgerald of Red Barn Real Estate in Meridian, ID.


How did you get started in Real Estate?
I fell into Real Estate after moving to Boise from the Washington DC area. My degree and background was in Hotel and Restaurant Management, so after a number of years of working in the hotel industry and sales, I didn’t find as many opportunities for that in Boise. I started building a house in a new home community and was approached by the community manager to consider getting into New Construction sales. I’ve been doing all sorts of real estate sales and loving it ever since.

 

What home features do you see trending in 2016?
I think we are going to continue to grow at a fairly conservative pace. I would see that our sales increase may stay relatively flat or increase an average of 2-4%. We will continue to see the average purchase price increase because of such a lack of inventory in the lower-price point product (under $200,000). Sales may increase however if anything is holding us back it will be the lack of inventory. New construction will continue to drive the price point up but hopefully some people owning the lower-priced product wanting to sell and get back into the market this ear as the demand is incredibly high.

 

What’s the coolest thing you’ve ever seen at an open house?
Some of the coolest things I’ve seen at an open house have been during the Parade of Homes. Last year, an entire home was decorated with a Boise State Broncos theme to the point where they had a ladder that went upstairs into a bonus room that was literally decorated like the Bronco’s blue turf. Some of the secret room activity spots can be pretty fun.

 

If you could bake cookies at an open house, what kind would you make?
My very famous oatmeal chocolate chip cookies that my husband swears are cooked with something extra that makes them impossible to stop eating!

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English.
