It's like a retail store for real estate. A clever innovation.
Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) June 12, 2012
Zilbert International Realty, an innovative and successful Miami-based real estate agency, announced today that it will be opening its flagship "Zilbert Realty Store®" on Friday, June 15, 2012. The company will be holding an open house from 2:00pm to 8:00pm, open to the general public.
The Zilbert Realty Store® is a retail-like concept envisioned by Zilbert International Realty President and CEO, Mark Zilbert. The design was inspired by hugely-successful retail operations like the Apple Store® and the mock-retail-store of Progressive Insurance's television ads. The Zilbert Realty Store® enables Zilbert's real estate experts to engage with customers in a one-on-one setting, aided by a suite of Apple® technologies and an array of LED wall displays. The store will allow a customer to browse Miami-area condos and homes with the ease of shopping for traditional consumer products in a retail setting. Zilbert's staff, equipped with Apple® products, will assist customers and provide expert insight into all of the neighborhoods and communities in which Zilbert markets properties.
When the store opens later this week, Zilbert will be showcasing properties such as an $11.5M penthouse-type condominium at South Beach's Continuum condo, a $6.15M high-profile condo at South Beach's Apogee condo plus many more premium condos and homes in and around Miami Beach. Zilbert's inventory includes properties at all price ranges, with properties being offered for as little as $225,000 and ranging up to the $11.5M property mentioned above.
The Zilbert Realty Store® is open seven days a week, and offers free (two-hour) parking to its clients, plus complementary WiFi access. When customers visit the store, they will be able to meet with a Zilbert International Realty real estate expert without an appointment. The store is designed to make the process of buying or selling real estate as simple, streamlined and educational as possible.
