As I prepare to give you a market update from an emptied office that’s usually bustling and full of life, I sort of feel like an astronaut giving his last correspondence from a spaceship. Looking back on my March 1 update, I realize I never could have imagined world events would unfold like they have.

To all of our friends and clients, I hope you’re staying safe and healthy. There’s so much misinformation swirling around out there, so my intent with this market update is to provide some clarity on what’s actually going on in real estate. People still need our services, and we’re still rising to the challenge.
