Buffini Conference in Chicago October 12th and 13th leaves Agents and their teams recharged to grow their businesses by growing relationships.

North Eastern Group Realty had the opportunity to host area professionals on an enlightening and inspiring trip to Chicago to hear Brian Buffini speak about current issues facing the industry and to correct many misconceptions about the current market and economy.
  
For example, although times are tough, in 2008 the GDP actually grew 1%, whereas during the Great Depression is shrank 11%, and unemployment is approaching 10%, during the Depression it was 25% and that was only a count of unemployed males, factoring in women, the actual real rate would have been 42%! The real truth about the current market is that 30% of US homes don’t even have a mortgage on them – their owners own them outright, and of the 70% of the homes that do have mortgages, 96.7% of them are NOT in foreclosure. The real situation is that housing affordability is better than it has been in 30 years!
 
Thanks to all of the great Fort Wayne Realtors who joined us on our excursion; we look forward to many more opportunities to grow and interact in the future!

North Eastern Group Realty Starts Fort Wayne Real Estate Blog

North Eastern Group Realty

North Eastern Group Realty

North Eastern Group Realty has anxiously anticipated the beginning of our new Fort Wayne Real Estate blog. We look forward to the opportunity this will provide us to share our passion for our great city as well as our Real Estate knowledge with all who are interested! First I would like to take a moment to share about who we are.

 

North Eastern Group Realty is an outgrowth of The North Eastern Group,  a development company that has been developing communities for over 46 years. We have developed hundreds of communities and thousands of home sites. 26 of the communities we developed were HBA Parade of Homes sites, including Blackhawk, Arlington Park, The Village of Buckingham, Lincoln Village, Windmill Ridge, Whispering Meadows, Chandlers Landing, Rock Creek, La Cabreah, The Forest at Foxwod and Azbury Woods.  Early in 2008 we opened our real estate company with the mission to create a world class facility and recruit Fort Wayne’s highest quality REALTORS. Although we are still adding to our team, we have an amazing start with Judi, Phil, Brad and  Lori Stinson, Ed and Christine Schaefer, Diane Caudill and Cindy Burkhart, Frank Shepler, Reta Todd, Neal Sherk, Pat Doyle, Mike Hostetler, Brad Noll, Abby Grubbs, Michelle Mang, Jay Shipley and Dan Amstutz. Our newly renovated offices are located in La Cabreah off Dupont Road. Once riding arena and horse stalls, our facilities never cease to amaze our clients and visitors.

 

We welcome visitors to stop in at any time for a tour! The best part is, the horses are still here with an active horse operation on site. We hope to share more with you over time not only about North Eastern Group, but about timely real estate topics and interesting happenings in the Fort Wayne area.
