Basket Brigade 2017 Was a Huge Success


We have been fortunate to run the Basket Brigade for the past two years. Thanksgiving 2017 was our most successful year to date.

We recently completed our eighth year at the annual Basket Brigade. This event was started by the Barton and Palmer families, but it got so big a few years ago that they turned control over to The Larkin Group. We’re honored to keep this tradition alive.

See the full story here: http://www.stgeorgeutah.com/news/archive/2017/11/23/jmr-brigade-volunteers-surprise-260-local-families-with-baskets-of-thanksgiving-food/

Last year was our first year in charge and we were able to help 222 families. However, it was complete chaos. This year, I think we finally figured it out. We helped 260 families and it felt much easier.


We were able to help 260 families this year!

A lot of Thanksgiving events will serve meals to those in need on Thanksgiving and that’s great. With Basket Brigade, however, we’re adding that element of home back into the equation. Families in crisis are nominated at stgeorgebasketbrigade.org, and then we build a full basket for them that contains everything they need for a complete Thanksgiving meal. 

We just wanted to give you a quick update on the success we had this year with the Basket Brigade. If you have any questions for us about this event or about anything in the real estate world, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We would love to hear from you soon.

Nominate family to receive Thanksgiving Basket NOW!!




Friends –

You may remember that last year we took over the Basket Brigade charity here in St. George and had the opportunity to deliver Thanksgiving to 222 nominated families! It was incredible.

And guess what? It’s time to do it again! WILL YOU PLEASE HELP?
  1. There are families in need who have not been nominated. PLEASE NOMINATE a family in need HERE. What does “in need” mean? If you think for even a second that they’re in need, they’re in need!
  2. If you’re able to feed a family, please do so HERE. It’s just $45 to have a full thanksgiving meal delivered to a family. And….we’ll be sending you an amazing gift (see here) for doing so!
Here’s (just one) of the messages we received from families who received a basket last year:

"It was a very, very nice surprise to get this thoughtful basket. Thank you for everyone who put in the love, time, thought, and money to make this happen. It was humbling to see we were number 171 on the envelope and to think of how many baskets had been delivered. Super clever with the use of the laundry basket, we used it yesterday :) Thank you again and we will be paying it forward."

-Love, a grateful family.


We know it’s a busy time, please take just a moment to nominate a family who will be forever grateful!

-Jeremy Larkin, Basket Brigade Chairman

PS – The event is NEXT WEEK so please don’t delay!

What's Happening in Our Local Market This Fall?

Friends and Clients —

Fall is upon us, (the best season :) ), and with what it what can be some of the STRONGEST months in St. George Real Estate.

And if you're thinking you've missed your chance to sell your home, let me reassure you…..

This autumn actually presents a fantastic moment to sell. Here's why.

First off, housing inventory is still incredibly low. In some areas of St. George inventory is so low that we’re selling homes BEFORE THEY EVER HIT THE MARKET!

In fact, according to data from the Census Bureau and the National Association of Realtors, inventory remains well below historic averages, and is 50% less than the peak in 2006….and we thought no market could ever be that hot again. Go figure!

Second, while mortgage rates also remain very low, recent announcements by the Federal Reserve might cause them to finally start rising.

This would make mortgages less affordable and might turn away a significant number of potential buyers.

This is even more of a concern when you consider the continuing growth of home prices—6.9% in the last year alone.

Third, contrary to conventional wisdom, Fall is generally a great time to list your home.

Buyers in the Fall are likely to be more serious because they have probably been searching for months without success. (For more on that, check out our recent post on bidding wars.)

Also, because fewer homes are listed in the fall, this means there's even less competition than we’ve seen due to the general low inventory.

So what do you get when you put all those things together?

Arguably the finest home-selling environment St. George has seen in a decade. Some will wait because it makes sense, others will wait because they’re trying to “time” the market….and will look back with regret.

Here are a few resources to help you with whatever next steps you are considering:

Now I’m headed out to enjoy this Fall weather, you should do the same!
