live, eat and breathe real estate
(PRWEB) October 25, 2012
Century 21 St Maarten has appointed Ritika Asrani as the Head Broker and Office Manager for the island of St Maarten. The new management has moved quickly to make positive changes in the day to day operations of the offices with numerous changes, in particular, new realtors and advanced client lead management system.
Ritika Asrani, the new Century 21 St Maarten manager, stresses that the focus will be on ensuring all relators representing Century 21, live, eat and breathe real estate. “We want to give our clients the best possible buying experience. It’s not just about selling, what’s more important is that the client and realtor build a trusting relationship”, says Ritika.
When asked how they plan to turn around the business in these tough times, Ritika was in confident mood; “If people say these are tough times, then it’s simply because they are not putting in enough hours. We at Century 21 St Maarten believe that there is an opportunity everywhere; we just have to work hard and find those opportunities. Thankfully, St Maarten is not experiencing the recession as other cities of the world. We have a really strong market here and we are grateful for it.”
The new changes are already bearing fruit, especially with St Maarten rentals and St Martin villa sales sectors showing tremendous growth compared to previous years. The growth can be attributed to a larger share of the islands property portfolio as home owners put their faith in the new management. St Maarten property management is a recently introduced part of the business which is projected to overtake the sales and rental divisions.
The new management say that the first priority is to transform their website century21-stmaarten.com into a social tool. “We need to embrace new practices and understand where our clients look for properties. More and more people are browsing the internet for information, and we want to help them. It is every realtors duty to ensure, first and foremost that a client is well informed with the island, its laws and its culture. That is what we intent to do.”
