According to the NAR Member Profile highlights 2020, 64% of all realtors were women and nationwide they dominate the residential real estate market. Women have come so far in terms of making a house more than just a HOME. On International Women's Day, we are celebrating the women in real estate and their contributions to the community they serve. Scott Realty Professionals is also proud to feature its broker/owner, Sabriya Scott, and her journey to becoming a realtor, from styling hair to selling homes, and to helping young women realize their dream of having financial stability by getting into real estate.
In an interview with The Headley Group Real Estate Show, Mike Headley asked, "What made Sabriya Scott say, I want to get into real estate?"
"I could do ten heads in one day and I could only make a certain amount of money. And I work really hard with doing hair, styling hair, and also with teaching. You know, I would work 40, 45, 50 hours because I had to after I left teaching school. It didn't matter how many degrees I got, I still could only make a certain amount of money.....so when I looked at all the time that I was spending styling hair also after work, after teaching, I still could only make a certain amount of money and it wouldn't put me where I needed to be financially" Sabriya answered.

2020 is a bit hellacious, but it doesn't and shouldn't stop us from spreading holiday cheers - virtually, that is. Here are our Top 3 Gift Giving Tips for this year's holiday season.
Shop online and ship swiftly and early. Technology and e-commerce have made it easy and convenient for busy people to still personally shop for their loved ones without having to step into the stores. For realtors, buying presents from a local business in your community and having them send the gifts to family, friends, and clients is a way to support the local economy and fostering a stronger relationship with the community and your client network.
Re-imagine the old fashioned. The pandemic forced creativity in many people in terms of social gathering. Topping the list is using Zoom for work and personal events. Zoom party, anyone? However, if you choose not to go this route this holiday season, a curbside drop-off, a honk of the horn and wave, or an arranged short and sweet personal greeting would be great options too.
Get creative with whatever budget you have. An expensive present will definitely wow the receiver, but what will stand out is the gift wrapped in a lot of thought and love.

For most people, moving from one home to another can be wearisome. Scheduling your move is one great way to make the experience a smoother and happier one for you and your entire family.
When is the best time to move? Many people will say that summertime is the most ideal time to pack your bags and call your movers; we agree!
The long days and abundance of daylight make it more manageable to move in and out of a home, especially if you are not hiring a moving company. Moving in the summer means no school will be disrupted if you have kids and that could mean an extra set of hands to help with the packing and moving.
Summertime is selling season in many markets, so as the sun heats up, so does the housing market.
