TripAdvisor.com ranked Fort Myers as the # 3 destination in its list of “Destinations on the Rise” in their website. Their report cites offshore fishing in beautiful aqua waters, our white sand beach’s, 3 spring training baseball teams, our lush green all year round golf courses, and the renovations to the downtown Fort Myers area, as the major reasons for their ranking.

There are a few things that a seller must do prior to a attempting a short sale.  1] Pick an experienced Short Sale Realtor. [Ask……How many have you been successful at closing during the last 12 month’s?] I brought on a new member of my team 5 years ago named Jill Dean. Short Sales are her exclusive field of endeavor. In 2011 she lead our 100+ Realtor office in successful closings with Short Sale clients. She has developed relationships with the banks contacts, deep into the banks staff, to cut thru the red tape process.

On the surface this question seems to be next to impossible to answer. It seems there is a real estate office on every corner in our area. However if you break it down to the basic’s, you only need to come up with 2 criteria to answer that question. That’s right, you only need 2 criteria! 1] Pick a large company with an international presence. Gone are the Ma & Pa gas stations. Gone are the Ma & Pa grocery stores. Gone are the small five & dime stores. So to is the small storefront real estate offices. Now its all about Branding. Century 21, Coldwell Banker, and my Re/Max are all examples of Brands that not only market internationally…….but also operate franchise offices in many foreign countries. The networking capability and opportunities with these offices overseas is endless. The world shrunk when the internet came on the scene, and represents a huge avenue for marketing property. Here is the bottom line……..as a seller you want the most exposure you can get in selling your home!  Its all about Branding these days. […]

“ZOOMERS”  IN FT. MYERS This family fun park was a victim of our recession and sat empty in 2007, when construction was halted as the developer Tim Miles ran out of money. He had poured almost $15 million into the project and its 16 acre site, but lacked the funds to see it completed. Since that time the family amusement park has sat abandoned. Over the next several years, it had become overgrown with weeds and debris. Almost all of the steel beams, copper wiring, anything of value, were stolen by thieves leaving a blighted look about the place. […]
