What a year!
2021 will definitely be one for the books for The Kate Broddick Team. Between multiple lockdowns, a constant feeling of the unknown and an economy that was just dying to reopen, 2021 left many families overwhelmed and unsure of what the future may hold.
For the first 4 months of the year, our team of REALTORS® worked remotely to keep everyone safe. This was a hard feat for a close knit team like ours where we thrive off of each other’s energy. We adapted the best way we knew how but there is no doubt that we had our own internal struggles that were triggered by the looming pandemic that often felt like there was no end in sight.
With record low inventory levels and soaring prices, we felt the burden for our buyer-clients who were frustrated by the sellers market. Many of us questioned the market but the advice we gave to our clients truly kept their best interests at heart.
Although everyone had their own beast to contend with in 2021, there was so much light that shone through. The pandemic brought a sense of reflection for me and what I truly wanted in life—both personally and professionally.
After many months spent pondering the next move in my real estate career, I listened to my gut and made a very important call to someone from my past; someone who I’d been quietly watching for the last two years.
That person was owner and founder of Revel Realty Inc., Ryan Serravalle. Ryan and I had gone to school together as kids, but it had been decades since I’d seen him.
Ryan and I connected over real estate banter a few times here and there, but I always believe that timing is everything and so when I made the call to find out more about his brokerage and how our brands could compliment each other, the ball quickly began to roll.
Opening a brokerage was a 5 year plan that fast-forwarded quite quickly and before I knew it, the emergence of the first team office came to life.
A New Chapter in Real Estate
My greatest professional accomplishment to date was born when Revel Realty Inc. – The Kate Broddick Team came to fruition.
Together, with my amazing team of agents and support staff we transferred to our new home—a strong culture of inclusion, progressive strategies and marketing—led by two people whose edgy approach to real estate was exactly what I had been missing.
For the first time in years I felt a new sense of purpose and a vision that was as clear as day.
A New Day for Real Estate in Norfolk County
Within 2 months of joining Revel, I took yet another leap of faith and followed my gut. I opened a 2nd real estate team office in Norfolk County.
A quaint little country inspired home in the heart of the downtown had been sitting on the market for quite some time, which was actually shocking given the current market conditions.
The day before the current tenant was about to sign a new lease, I swooped in and bought it. With a million ideas in mind, I could see the future of The Kate Broddick Team and where I always dreamed of it heading.
I Will Always Show Gratitude
2021 will always be a year that I’m grateful for. Although one of the hardest years I’ve personally had to endure, it forced me focus on the things that needed work, shed the things that no longer served me and take notice of all the wonderful opportunities and relationships that surrounded me. In 2021 I grew in leaps and bounds and for that I will always be grateful.
To My Team
In 2021, I give thanks to my OG team members and everything you’ve contributed along the way. This was a hell of a year but we made it through together. I thank my vibrant new team members that came to me so organically and changed our path, direction and energy. I’m so excited to see your contributions to the team as we continue to grow together.
A Sincere Thanks
To my husband and kids—your support, guidance and love got me through this year in more ways than you know.
To our loyal clients—your relationship with us and commitment is greatly appreciated. You’re the reason why we’ve remained #1 for the last 7 years. We honestly cannot thank you enough.
We’ve Built a Strong Foundation
2021 was a pinch year for The Kate Broddick Team. The last quarter we quietly built a strong foundation for what’s to come in 2022 and beyond. Our sense of purpose is greater than ever before and I can’t wait to see what comes next.
