Suburban markets across the US are heating up amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Angela Retelny, a broker based in New York’s Westchester County, has more than two decades of experience and $350 million in total sales volume, and she said it’s an unprecedented time in the area, with homes flying off the market and business going through the roof.
“It’s a crazy world we’re in,” she told Business Insider. “Emotions are high, there’s a lot of heartbreak in this market. A lot of buyers put in offers and get accepted offers only to get calls the next day saying, ‘We’re sorry, but we just got an offer that was significantly higher.'”
To manage the influx in business, said she Retelny wakes up around 7 a.m. each day and doesn’t stop until midnight.
“I’ve never seen a market like this. It’s been hugely competitive. It has me working 18-hour days,” she explained.

We touch base on our current deals, update each other on new clients, assess how our current listings are performing, discuss new opportunities, review key marketing initiatives, and most importantly, discuss our respective to-do lists for that day.
All day, everyday:
After my morning check-ins and sales calls, I am continuously in contact with all my active buyers, my sellers via email and phone.
I call my buyers and advise them on placing and/or updating assertive offers while leveraging my over 20 years of local market expertise. The market is full of nuances and challenges and my experience navigating all market conditions truly benefits my clients, especially in this intense, rapidly moving market.
I prepare well-thought-out reports for clients looking to list their homes,. Our newly launched Compass CMA uses Artificial Intelligence to adjust comps and a powerful tool to compare homes in a room …read more
