Naples, FL (PRWEB) November 21, 2005
John R. Wood, Inc. Realtors is bringing the global real estate market to Naples door. The Wood firm has joined with the United Kingdom’s Mayfair International Realty to market properties to the European investor and now will have an office presence in London, England.
Mayfair International Realty, with headquarters in London, has a network of 125 of the finest British brokerages and operates 350 offices throughout the length and breadth of the United Kingdom. Mayfair International Realty is a growing global real estate community represented by brokers in the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Cyprus, and the United Arab Emirates. It has recently launched its operation in Florida and is synonymous with quality, integrity, experience, and customer satisfaction. One Mayfair broker was established in 1750, more than a quarter of a century before the Declaration of Independence.
“We consider our alliance with Mayfair International Realty an essential strategic partnership that guarantees our clients’ properties reach the widest possible market with inclusive customer services available only through our brokerage,” said Phil Wood, President/CEO of John R. Wood Realtors. “We have definitely seen an increase in international purchases in the Florida and particularly in the Naples market which is experiencing upward international movement from this trend due to the appeal of our exclusive coastal community. Our aim, working with Mayfair International Realty, is to bring the global investor to our marketplace.”
According to Wood and Mayfair, the strength of the pound and euro against the dollar means the US is a great investment for European buyers. Most Europeans choose Florida, and 90 percent of Brits select the Sunshine State.
“We are seeing more buyers than ever before attracted to our welcoming coastal community, and particularly from the UK,” said Wood, “Once a John R. Wood listing is secured, we will present the residence to a global network of real estate professionals and a website with portals into all the European countries.”
The Wood firm is the first and only Southwest Florida real estate company to join Mayfair International’s global real estate directory and referral network. “The marketing of our clients’ properties will receive a clear benefit from this exposure to a global market,” added Wood. “We have always gone the extra mile for our clients. I am excited to say that now, as part of Mayfair International Realty, we are going an extra 4500 miles and opening the doorway to Europe for our valued clients.”
Wood has led his firm using an emphasis on customer service, steeped with a focus on technology and marketing. Joining Mayfair International Realty and representing homeowners and buyers in a global market has allowed his company to deliver the global market to the doorstep of his clients and customers.
