In this report, you can explore the latest market trends, what we saw in the 2012 market and how it compared to the previous few years, and detailed information about what's happening in each neighborhood. I hope you find the information and research in the report helpful. Click the below image to view the PDF report.

BackgroundPutting together this annual report is an exciting yet painstaking process. It's important to me that with the large amount of data included in the report that we make it as easy to understand and visually beautiful as possible, while still maintaining the granular detail that is so important given how many micromarkets there are.
Additionally, from the paper selection to the beautiful photos I chose for the report, I wanted it to not just be an informative document, but stand out as a beautiful work of design that easily tells the story of the Burlingame real estate market. In today's world of marketing and storytelling, it's important to draw in visitors and viewers through a clean, simple design. From initial design and multiple rounds of design review, research in the tax records and MLS data in early January, and analysis of the stats in February, I wanted to take last year's report a step further and make it even more relevant in 2013.
Printing Thousands of these reports is pretty involved -- how is that done?If you're curious about what is involved behind the scenes printing a document of this quality and size (I certainly was!), check out the below video I produced last year in collaboration with Colorprint in Burlingame. Colorprint does high quality work for a variety of organizations and businesses in Burlingame, plus they donate 25% of their profits right back into the Burlingame community. It's great to support the good work owner Mark Jaffe and his team do.
An Honor to be recognizedAfter publishing my first annual report in February 2012, I was enthusiastically encouraged to submit the report for consideration by the Luxury Home Marketing Institute for its prestigious annual awards competition in the "Best Agent Market Report". In the fall of 2012, I attended the Leaders In Luxury conference in Charleston, South Carolina (my first time there, and what a beautiful town!), and had an opportunity to meet many of the top luxury brokers in the country. At the awards dinner, I was surprised and grateful to be chosen for the award out of so many incredible entries. Below are some photos from the event.

SpeakingIt's been fun sharing my enthusiasm of Burlingame with audiences around the country over the last few years. In early April 2013, I was invited to speak at the Kansas City Technology RECHARGE conference to 400 local Realtors, which was organized by Michael Pierce, a local, fresh Realtor who also works with the Kansas City Regional Association of Realtors. Thanks for having me!
