Tesha Wilburn | Real Estate Buyer Specialist

Tesha Wilburn | Real Estate Buyer Specialist  The Romanski Group | Keller Williams Meet Tesha Wilburn, a Romanski Group Buyer Specialist! Before Real Estate, Tesha was in the insurance industry for about 10 years where she dealt with policy rules and regulations. Her job in insurance fostered her attention to detail, but lacked a creative outlet, and the ability to form relationships with clients. This made Real Estate an attractive career move because she would be able to marry her passions and strengths, setting her up for a very successful Real Estate career. As a result, Tesha decided to pursue Real Estate and hasn’t looked back! “What I love most about Real Estate is making a client’s dreams come true. Everyone has a vision of what their home should be like and being apart of finding the right home is so special and rewarding. I love seeing their excitement when they walk through ‘the house’ and then guiding them through the process of closing!” – Tesha Tesha’s Passions & Outreach Involvement: Church: Tesha attends Old Landmark Church where she’s involved in an outreach ministry called Matthew 25:35 Ministry. The ministry teams up with Food Finders Food Bank to help provide food to shut-ins and others in need. They also have toy drives and giveaways throughout the year. Singing: Her passion for continuing education bleeds into her personal life and because of this Tesha pursues opportunities in which she can perfect her craft. Hence her reason for taking voice lessons. Tesha enjoys singing and is an active member of the church choir. Running & Competing: Together, Tesha and her husband have ran 3 mini-marathons. She enjoys being competitive and seeing herself improve, and as a result,... read more

Should I Wait to Buy a Home?

Should I Wait to Buy a Home?    This has been our most asked question of 2017….       If you’ve been toying with the idea of buying a home, or you anticipate a life change that might force you to move—such as a new baby or a job transfer—you should be “buying as urgently and as soon as possible,” says Jonathan Smoke, chief economist for realtor.com®.   Home prices now stand higher than before the 2007 crash, increasing 5% from 2015 to 2016.  Housing experts expect an additional 2% to 3% jump in 2017.   The bottom in home prices has come and gone. Home values will continue to appreciate for years. Waiting to buy a home no longer makes sense. Indicators also point to rising interest rates ahead: Money is still cheap (4% interest rates for many loan programs).  An increase in rates will impact YOUR monthly mortgage payment. A year from now, your housing expense will increase if a mortgage is necessary to buy your next home. Everyone’s financial situation is different, but if you can afford to buy a home, there’s little reason not to. Inventory shrinking continues to be a trend of steady decline since just before the housing crash, when inventory peaked, so if you’re planning on buying a home, get off of the fence. We can help make the dream of buying a home a reality for you!  Begin your home search here: Why choose The Romanski Group with Keller Williams Realty for your home buying needs?  We take a different approach to real estate; personal touch, win-win philosophy and positive results.  Our team is comprised of... read more

Listen to what Mike & Mike think about the Romanski Group!

They are hands down THE best real estate team in the whole freaking country. They CANNOT be topped. Genuine, kind, professional, knowledgeable, fun, friendly and whether buying or selling, they have your back. If you are selling they have a marketing program that cannot be matched. It absolutely does not get better then these two and their team!! I’ve lost track of the # of homes Erin & Jim have helped us/me buy and sell. At least 3 or more.
