Happy New Year from The #KREMCrew

Happy New Year! I want to write you all a quick note to tell you that I’m grateful for your business and to say thank you for your support. Your trust and confidence in me and the team at Kingston REM means the world. 2020 was a challenging yet ultimately fulfilling year for us at Kingston REM. For those of you who know me, I am a pretty regimented guy in my personal life. This also spills over in how I like to run my business. Processes, procedures, continuity, organization- it’s no secret that the more you have these things…

KREM Anny v.3- The Pandemic Edition

  Year three has passed and we’re on to year four. With a lot of the same faces, we continue forward with a new reality that was thrown at us just over 7 months ago. We find ourselves today with an exponentially more difficult task than we saw in the first half of the year, believe it or not.

This Rental Season. WOW.

Tenants: “I couldn’t even visit my apartment before I rented it.” Landlords: “I have to pay the fee AND lower my rent $200/mo.?!” Agents: “I understand you don’t want to lower your rent/pay the fee/have in-person showings/have strangers in your apartment so let’s try to work this out so everyone’s happy!” *grabs bottle of xanax* I often explain that one of the reasons I love my job is its unpredictability. Every day is different. People move and act differently and it’s a real life skill to learn and understand how to navigate that. Personalities, expectations, etc. It’s fun to me. …
