(PRWEB) November 10, 2012
Sarasota Bay Real Estate, one of the leading property brokers in Southwest Florida, has taken a series of steps this year to enable the company to further enhance the quality of its service to clients and broaden even more its participation in the resurgence of the property market in the Sarasota-Manatee County areas.
Deeper Pool of Professional Agents
“One of our greatest assets is our capability to attract a deeper pool of professional agents who have the skill, expertise, and experience in the real estate industry,” Christina Miller, the company’s managing broker and co-owner, said. Sarasota Bay Real Estate early this year beefed up its roster of agent-brokers, adding eight more professionals including a husband-and-wife tandem to its team of comprehensive real estate service providers. These new Sarasota Bay Real Estate agents, which include several entrepreneurs, a Juris Doctorate holder, a former Homes and Land publisher, were top producers in the realty firms they formerly worked for, some of which are corporate-brand brokers.
“Our new additions to Sarasota Bay Real Estate posses the ability to professionally represent clients in all facets of buying or selling residential properties—from contract negotiations to mortgage loan acquisition, home inspections, and even beyond the day of closing the deal,” Miller explained. “Many of them also have years of first-hand experience in the new home construction business,” she added.
Agent-Friendly Business Model
In May this year, SRBE undertook a bold move in order to enhance exponentially its services to sellers of residential properties. It joined the mounting bandwagon of Sarasota real estate companies which offer 100% of earned commissions to its agents and broker associates. “The true marketing value in this business set-up is immense,” Roy Hunter, co-owner and the marketing strategist behind SRBE, said. “Agents getting 100 percent of their commission have greater financial resources to grow their client base and to market their listings,” he explained.
To cover broker office operations, each agent contributes $300 monthly. With more agents drawn by the 100 percent commission policy, a broker’s overhead can be easily covered by their contributions. ”We, as the broker-owners, in turn, have a customer base in our agents to sell our marketing services,“ Hunter added. He confided that all agents who joined Sarasota Bay Real Estate recently and availed of the advantages of their marketing services took in more income than their take in their previous brokers.
Potent Marketing Tools
Sarasota Bay Real Estate is a popular choice among sellers of Sarasota, Florida, real estate because of its potent arsenal of marketing tools. Among these is the company’s website which receives over 1,000 visitors daily, enabling tremendous exposure to a property listing and contributing to a quick sale at the highest possible price.
For home buyers, Sarasota Bay Real Estate has found a solution to the general lack of information available on the local area and the residential subdivisions within. Just this August, SBRE started to produce customized maps of areas with the most sought-after Sarasota homes for sale. These maps, unlike most other brokerages’, offer more specific details. These materials, which can be sourced online, not only provide statistical information on current listings and recently sold properties but also contain for each subdivision a summary of current market property values therein.
