Scott Yocum still has the first check his brother Marty Dreibelbis made out to him in 1976.
They bought apartment buildings in Pine Grove Mills and Houserville that year. Aside from about a four-year hiatus, Yocum has worked in real estate ever since. He cofounded Re/Max Centre Realty 27 years ago.
And, no, Yocum doesn’t see retirement in his future.
Like his dad, real-estate developer and Nittany Oil Company founder Galen Dreibelbis, he likes to keep busy.
That’s good, because home buyers are coming out to see what is on the market.
For sellers, the best time to sell is now, now, now. Right now is the good time to sell for multiple reasons. Inventory of our Centre County houses are low right now, and interest rates are low.
The shortest? I think I had it on for about an hour and a half, because every Tuesday we have a sales meeting, then we go on properties that have just been listed. I had just listed a real nice stone duplex in College Heights near the golf course, and another real estate agent happened to be there. She looked at it and gave me an offer, full price obviously, and it was sold.
