Team Member Spotlight : Meet Morgan

Morgan Samson is Casey’s daughter and was born and raised in Vienna VA. Growing up, she was very involved in VYI sports playing basketball, softball and soccer. She attended James Madison High School where she was a cheerleader, played lacrosse, and waitressed at the Vienna Inn. After she graduated in 2007, Morgan decided to head down south to the University of Alabama “Roll Tide”. She was a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma, and just like her dad, a huge football fan. She finished up her college career at James Madison University, graduating with a degree in communications.

After graduation, Morgan worked as a pharmaceutical sales rep where she was one of the top reps in her company. In December 2012, Morgan was thrown a curve ball when she was diagnosed with the autoimmune disease, Type 1 Diabetes. Instead of being a road block, this has been a driving force for her to succeed and help other people struggling in the community.

In 2013, Morgan decided to transition from pharmaceutical sales to a more demanding sales position in software sales. Morgan worked for 5 years at Nauticon Office Solutions where she was an instrumental part of the company’s #1 sales team. She consistently exceeded her monthly quotas and was recognized by upper management for her dedication and work ethic.
After years of convincing, we were finally lucky enough to coax her away to join the family business and our sellers and buyer are the beneficiaries. From the start Morgan did not disappoint. In her first 2 open houses she sold a $1.75M home and the next week sold a $1.8M home. Her style and professionalism is a perfect final addition to our great team.

Outside of work, Morgan enjoys spending time with her family, friends and her boyfriend, fellow team member Colby Smyth. Together they love to travel, cook, socialize, and take care of their two rescue dogs. A few of Morgan’s favorite things include animals, exercising, red wine and laughing. Morgan Samson’s Rescue dogs pictured here, Diego and Fuego.

The Casey Samson Team is a proud sponsor of We the Dogs DC and Lucky Dog Animal Rescue. We love helping our clients find their forever homes, as well as some pretty amazing pups too!

Market Update April 13th

Market update April 13th

Easter Sunday is coming up so our team has no open houses this Sunday. Stay tuned, we have 5 new listings coming on next week!

We thought we would share some stats from The Casey Samson Team:  4 out of the last 6 listings we put on SOLD at the open house and we have the buyers! 12 days is our average days on the market. 40 out of the 45 homes we listed since the election have sold or are under contract!

What is your Market like?

Sellers need to know how the market is reacting so they can adjust their strategy.  % of homes under contract dictate Buyer’s or Seller’s Markets

Under 33% is a Buyer’s Market, 33%-50% is a Neutral Market, 50% and above denotes a Seller’s Market.

Each town has it’s own dashboards and charts that give sellers a better look at their particular market. Charts are dynamically updated so sellers have the best information available. They include:

  • Closed Sales compared to the 5 year average
  • New Pending (homes under contract) vs 5 year average shows us buyer activity.
  • Active Listings vs 5 year average talks to the current inventory.
  • Months of supply vs 5 year average tells us whether we are in a sellers market or a buyers market and has a direct effect on pricing.
