Century 21 Camelview Shuts its Doors

Jonathan Dalton, Phoenix Real Estate AgentAs I was discussing the demise of Century 21 Arizona Foothills’ Arrowhead office with some friends this morning, I learned that Century 21 Camelview had shut its doors over the past couple of weeks.

Several agents have moved to Foothills, including one who signed on at the soon-to-be-defunct Arrowhead office.

Camelview was a relatively small office … exact numbers aren’t available as all but three of the agents already have severed and moved on.

And from the rumor file … another large Century 21 franchise which recently combined a few offices into one very large location near the Peoria Sports Complex (and whose owners filed for bankruptcy) reportedly is looking to downsize to a more manageable (and likely affordable) space.

    For the record to my knowledge there is no demise at Century 21 Arizona Foothills. The lease was up at their location and finding the right location proved to be more challenging than anticipated. No agents have left at this stage. Checking the facts is important!

    The demise was of the Arrowhead office, whether of their own accord or otherwise. The lease issue had been on the table for several months – at least since I was an agent there.

    I didn’t say agents were leaving Foothills – I said the came to Foothills from Camelview. (Checking the sentence is just as important!) 🙂

    There are some Foothills agents who are considering other options. This I do know.

    I guess it was reading negative news in several of postings that causes one to misinterpret information. I think the news you share on the inventory is much more interesting and actually a more positive look at what is going on in real estate. There is a reason I stopped reading papers and listening to the news as so much seems to focus on the negative. It seems some blogs are leaning this way too, which means I will probably not read those as I prefer to focus on the more positive side of things.

    These events are simply that – events. They’re neither negative or positive in and of themselves. I believe not finding a way to keep open such a productive office in an area like Arrowhead Ranch is a mistake from a business standpoint. My blog, my opinion. I can be pithy and say “that’s my policy and I don’t see a reason to change it” but I’ll skip that part.

    Where the newspapers and mainstream media has gone severely wrong is there’s no balance.

    The real estate market never is purely positive or purely negative. But the stories that are written usually oscillate heavily from one to the other.

    Changes in the real estate brokerage landscape happens to be newsworthy. And I would have reported it even if I was still at Foothills. I can see where it may not be regarded as particularly positive about the company, but I don’t see this as a positive step.
