Millenials from India.  I've learned that their needs include top schools and homes facing the right direction for them and that each of these clients have a different direction need and some don't care.  Schools though, that doesn't vary.

The right Charlotte REALTOR!

From ubran to suburban - we serve many different types of buyers but, I would say many of mine are business professionals and physicians.

Charlotte's largest employer is healthcare - most think that since we're the second-largest banking center in the US that it's financial.  Our energy sector is also growing tremendously.

Because we serve a large technology base as well, many of our clients are millenials.  

Unlike Susan Emo's market, we are rarely the 'second home' city.

Unique..a lot of people move her for quality of life, outdoor living and hunting & fishing. People often decide to move her simply based on internet research before they have even been here. We have an intimate knowledge of the mountains and outdoor areas as my husband and I spent several summers in the Sawtooth Mountains leading backpacking trips and outdoor adventures and my husband is a hunter so we often connect with people on those levels and can talk more than just metro housing.

My local market is the US, soon to be 11 states on both coasts, north and south, and in every time zone across the US.  I work odd hours to cover the different time zones, do a lot of different market research to cover the different areas, and set up resources in each area so I can provide superior service despite distance.  Whole different animal than focusing on the local market, but it's fun!

We have many things that draw people to the area but the most UNIQUE thing about our market is we have the least expensive hydro-electric power rates in the United States.  We are known as the Apple Capital of the World but many of the apple trees are being pulled out to plant houses.  
We also have abundant water for irrigation, saving people money on domestic water expenses.  We are a recreational mecca and have a very diverse economic base.

What do I do to address those needs? Tell them about flood insurance, sink holes and advise that is  when you pop the cork on the bottle of wine from Stirling, labeled, IN CASE OF CAT 4, and close the door.
