"We are up some this year from last year. The local economy is generally better than a lot of areas," Robert F. Pennington, broker/owner, said. "We have a lot of good people and support staff, and we do aggressively market. Our area has been steadier and that speaks well for Blair County."
Pennington called the local real estate market a "work in progress."
"We are trudging along and hopefully by spring 2012, we will start to see a turnaround," he said. "We are still selling a lot of homes."
