Joe and Carol will kick-off the hour by sharing a little bit about the award-winning team known as Alain Pinel Saratoga. Winning in this market is not easy, but this top team has leadership, experience and passion that we all can learn from. Next, the discussion will start with setting the stage of where we are today, and how this sellers’ market is different from those in the past.

The conversation will also include some past & present perspective on:
| Buyer fatigue…getting weary & waiting, is it worth it?
