Lake County Association of Realtors gives back, reports on surge in buyers

LAKEPORT, Calif. – Realtors in Lake County and across California are finding new ways to serve their community during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Realtors are often one of the most engaged groups in their communities given their knowledge of the local areas they serve and the lasting relationships they create in those communities.

Lake County real estate agents and brokers continue to use this opportunity to give back.

“Our local Realtors are always there for our community, whether holding fundraisers for scholarships for the graduating seniors from our six Lake County High Schools, volunteering on boards, raising money and distributing Thanksgiving meals, participating in coat drives or giving donations to local charities," said Lake County Association of Realtors President Heidi Johnson, owner of Johnson Realty.

“We take seriously our responsibility to our community. This year we are donating the funds that would have been used for our annual Open House Extravaganza which was cancelled due to the pandemic. The Lake County Association of Realtors is paying it forward by donating $1,000 to Meals on Wheels and $1,000 to the Lake County Gleaners, both of which provide food to people in need,” Johnson added.

Like much of the community, Realtors who are independent contractors were heavily impacted by the state and local stay-at-home orders during what is typically our busiest time of year due to the pandemic home sales were stalled.

It has been a difficult few months for everyone but LCAOR said it is seeing listings quickly moving into contract with a big surge of buyers.

More homes have sold in June of 2020 than the same time period for last year. The group said it is optimistic the trend will continue and that fellow community members will see the same rebound.

“We know how hard Californians are working to keep our state safe, to keep our lives moving, to keep our sights focused on building a better future,” said California Association of Realtors President Jeanne Radsick. “I’m inspired every day by the kinds of stories I hear of healthcare workers, first responders and grocery clerks being there for their communities during this time of great need.”
