By Karen Cantor Posted in - Press on January 5th, 2021

As public debate continues to rage about how to manage the COVID virus, Florida’s decision to remain “open for business” has manifested itself in a state-wide real estate boom. With thousands of homeowners migrating to the low-tax, high-quality lifestyle, real estate developers are battling to capture their share of the market. Data from LendingTree clearly identifies Florida as the top destination. Nearly 1,000 people per day moving to the Sunshine State, and single-family home inventories are rapidly decreasing. Many transplants are leaving densely populated communities and have been reluctant to consider condominium living in their new locale. So what are South Florida’s luxury condominium developers doing to capture their share of the post-COVID migration? As new single-family home inventory shrinks,…

The “Rating” Game

By media Posted in - Real Estate on November 27th, 2012

A good sales process requires one end result…conversion. What is the most intangible asset that you have as a business owner, developer, builder, or realtor? It is your “book of business” or your lead database. You’ve had great success in generating leads, but have you been successful in developing goals, defining your rating system and implementing action plans to qualify and convert those leads?

It allows your sales team to focus the majority of their attention on the sales-ready leads, and not distract sales productivity with unqualified leads. It is a known fact that sales teams increase their efficiency and productivity…

But with the pressure of today’s deadlines and workloads, who has the time? When a client wants a system that they can edit themselves, looks professional or is primarily data-driven, you’ll want to choose a content management system (CMS) like Joomla!® to run the website. It’s faster to build, more reliable in code and can be updated by anyone who has a little time and the desire to learn the basics. One of my favorite things about Joomla!® is that making changes to an existing page is considerably faster. You just log in to the…
