Only those with tenacity can march forward in March”—Ernest Agyemang Yeboah

In like a lion and out like a lamb, known for unpredictable weather patterns, one moment in March, we’re enjoying the solar warmth on our sun-deprived skin, and next, we’re bundling up and bracing for another blast of winter’s cold and snow. But it’s also the only month that provides us with direction- to march forward because spring and new beginnings are on the way. Named after Mars, the Roman god of war, sometimes it feels like we may need to channel the grit of a military commander to keep pushing towards our goals, but we got this.

Our team recently participated in the Keller Williams Realty’s Family Reunion virtual conference. This powerful training event connected us with the brightest minds in business, technology, entrepreneurship, and, of course, real estate. Charged with many ideas to enhance our business and our client experience, we don’t want to lose our momentum, so we’re reading “The 12-Week Year” for this month’s book club. So if you’re interested in creating focus and urgency around your goals, please join us on March 31st at 7 pm as we discuss the book. March is also Women’s History Month, so we’d like to encourage you to check out our list below and participate in some of the special events around Metro Detroit this month.

Stay Safe, Happy and Healthy,

Farmington Hills is the second-largest city in Oakland County and consists of a collection of suburban neighborhoods surrounding the City of Farmington. This northern suburb is over 33 square miles and has a population of over 80,000. The city consistently shows up on lists of the safest and best places to live in Michigan and the U.S., and it's home to the Holocaust Memorial Center, the only Holocaust Memorial in the State of Michigan. Although Farmington and Farmington Hills have different services and addresses, the two cities are often considered the same community. These two cities combined were part of Farmington Township in the time of the Northwest Territory. The community's features include a recently renovated downtown, boutiques, a vintage cinema, numerous restaurants, exotic car dealerships, art galleries, and public parks, including Heritage Park. Farmington Public Schools serve both cities.

Farmington Hills is also home to many houses designed by Emily Helen Butterfield, the first licensed women architect in Michigan. After graduating from Syracuse University in 1907, Butterfield and her father, Wells D. Butterfield, established Butterfield and Butterfield's architectural office in Detroit. She led the Oaklands planned community project in Farmington Hills and designed many houses in the development. Butterfields thoughtful bungalows are notable for their two-story design and for the creative inclusion of evocative stylistic architectural elements that lent the homes formal interest and material richness. Butterfield and her father also designed the community's First United Methodist Church, a Neo-Gothic style, L-shaped building marked by a stepped tower and pointed stained glass windows. A 1925 "Storybook Tudor" style home she designed for Edward Beal, the Great Lake Land Corporation president, is currently being restored by two architects and preservationists and documented on this website.

The population of Farmington Hill is approximately 80,000, and the homeownership rate is 62%. From January 2020 through January 2021, 53 (+ 17.8%) properties sold, and the average sales price was $304,987 (+11.4%)

 

If you haven’t heard, yes, it’s a seller’s market! Our buyers are persistent, but it’s not easy going up against multiple offers and losing out on their dream home. If you or someone you know is interested in selling, please reach out to us, and we may be able to make a match. The map below is our current search area, but inventory is extremely low throughout the entire Metro Detroit area, so call us because it’s definitely a good time to sell.
