Top Ten Real Estate Agents List in Tampa Bay

Tampa, FL, 2017-Sep-30 — /EPR REAL ESTATE NEWS/ — Throughout recent years, Tampa has proven to be a booming real estate market. With exquisite waterfront homes, a bustling downtown district, and local attractions in the form of Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, and The Florida Aquarium, it’s no surprise that people from all over the country are flocking to homes in the Tampa Bay area.

When attempting to purchase a home, however, it is vital to have an experienced real estate professional guide you through the process in order to have as much money on the transaction as possible. The very same could be said about selling a home, as well.

Like any other industry, it can be difficult to sift through the incompetent professionals and find the best in the business.

Listed below are the top ten most trustworthy, experienced, and reliable real estate agents in Tampa Bay:

Number 10. Anthony Malafronte
A sales and marketing expert who has spent over 20 years working with Fortune 50 companies, Anthony Malafronte brought his skills and abilities to real estate over the past decade and has become a pivotal force within the local Tampa market.

His background in marketing, sales, and presentations allows him to showcase homes in an unforgettable way, illuminating the main selling points of a home and adeptly matching buyers with a home perfect for them. He is responsive, proactive, and easily reached, making him a solid choice for a real estate agent.

Number 9. John Pestalozzi
John Pestalozzi is renowned for his flexibility when it comes to communicating with clients. Whether buyers and sellers would like remote presentations, text message-only communication, or virtual HD tours of his current properties, he is able to accommodate them quickly and effectively.

Pestalozzi has resided in Tampa for over 37 years, which has provided him with a valuable insight into Tampa’s real estate market and community. He is aware that the search for Tampa homes begins online, which is why he spends extensive time and energy capturing high-quality photography and video footage of the properties he works with.

Number 8. Janet Lopez
Many real estate agents have less than a decade’s worth of experience in the industry. Janet Lopez has nearly thirty years of professionalism under her belt, and her sales record reflects this. Her intense focus on customer service has proven to be a worthwhile endeavor, as over 60% of her clients are referrals from those she has worked with in the past.

With a solid understanding of contract law, negotiation, and Tampa’s undulating real estate market, Janet strives to do all that she can in order to make the home buying and selling process as pleasant as possible.

Number 7. Crystal Brady
Crystal Brady, a native Floridian who has an undying passion for the state, focuses her real estate endeavors in Pasco and Hillsborough counties. She specializes in dealing with first-time homebuyers who are uninformed about what to expect when it comes to the transaction process.

Before she became a real estate agent, Brady worked as a customer relations manager for a property management company, solidifying her ability to work with clients of all types and help connect them with a home that will perfectly suit their needs.

Number 6. Kristy Darragh
As a veteran of the real estate industry with over 25 years of experience, Kristy has spent nearly three decades helping her clients not only purchase or sell a home, but also with listing, consulting, staging, and other processes that are integral to transactions in the real estate industry.

A self-admitted workaholic, Kristy Darragh spends much of her free time being involved in organizations throughout Tampa Bay, where she can not only better hone her craft as a real estate agent, but also benefit the professionals around her.

Number 5. Ray Mihara
Quick closing, responsive service, and strong negotiation tactics are just a few of Ray Mihara’s attributes that clients praise in their stellar review of the Tampa real estate agent. He is particularly well-versed in property investing, helping clients make informed financial decisions when they are looking to purchase a property that will later be sold for a higher price.

Due to his many accomplishments, Ray Mihara is among the top salesmen in the country, and consistently provides his clients with thorough, informative updates about the current state of their transaction.

Number 4. Bill Dallas
Like Ray Mihara, Bill Dallas is an expert on real estate investment, and is a powerful primary source for his clients to consult when it comes to deciding which properties to keep an eye on, and which properties to avoid.

In the past seven years, Bill Dallas has managed to significantly increase his sales volume from year to year, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Throughout his career, his reliability as a quality, honest real estate agent has set him apart from his peers.

Number 3. Wendy Ross
In terms of sales volume, Wendy Ross is ranked as one of the top 100 real estate agents by The Greater Tampa Association of Realtors. According to her past clients, he has been declared to be one of the most trustworthy real estate agents in the area, and has a reputation of being kind, approachable, and outstandingly quick with her services.

Due to her expertise in the field, it is no surprise she has won multiple awards that commend her outstanding customer service that helps her clients navigate the convoluted pathways of buying and selling a home.

Number 2. Raquel Zapata
Zapata has worked extensively with clients who seek relocation, luxury properties, vacant land, and those who are first-time homebuyers. Her extensive knowledge of Tampa’s real estate market equips her with the capability to ensure that all of her clients’ needs are met.

She is a member of the National Association of Realtors and the Greater Tampa Association of Realtors, and is heavily involved in both organizations. Giving back to the community is just as important to Raquel Zapata as serving her clients, and she strives to use her skills as a real estate professional to serve others, both on and off the clock.

Number 1. Realtor Joseph Lewkowicz
Joseph Lewkowicz has been involved in Tampa real estate for over 40 years. He has a personal sales record of 3,000+ independently sold homes, which is a number that entire sales teams struggle to compete with. As one would expect from someone with over four decades of experience in the industry, Joseph Lewkowicz’s services benefit clients of any type, whether they are first-time buyers, those looking to sell, or those looking to invest in property.

He is nationally ranked in the top 1% of Coldwell Banker agents, an achievement that earned him an invitation to the exclusive Celebration of Success event in 2016. His personal mantra “no one works harder to sell your home!” is something that he has consistently proven throughout his career, having connected thousands of buyers with a home that is a perfect fit.

Joseph Lewkowicz specializes in North Tampa, frequently working with properties in areas such as Lutz and Carrollwood. He also holds livestream conference calls on the second Thursday of every month that allow members of the community to interact with him directly, an endeavor that not many in the industry have taken advantage of, Joseph has thousands of satisfied clients that can attest to his unwavering dependability as a real estate professional.

Tampa is a haven within the Sunshine State, and has plenty to offer those who are looking for a home to enjoy the city’s natural beauty. Real estate transactions go far more smoothly with the help of a professional who knows the area, cares about their clients, and has a proven track record of successful negotiations.

High season in Krabi, Thailand to be record-breaking as new flights and accommodations abound

High season in Krabi, Thailand to be record-breaking as new flights and accommodations abound Krabi, Thailand’s popularity has grown so much in the past few years that pundits are predicting this year’s high season (November-April) will be record-breaking. As a result, airline companies and the hospitality industries are ramping up their offers.

Krabi, Thailand, October 13, 2014 — /EPR NETWORK/ — For years, Phuket, Thailand was the darling of tourism on the western shores of the Andaman Sea. Because of too much growth too fast, it became unpleasantly over-crowded and hectic. Krabi was the perfect alternative, with its white sandy beaches, crystal-clear water, fewer crowds, plentiful activities and extraordinary attractions.

A Relaxing and Refreshing Vacation Destination

Krabi Province, located on the southwest mainland coast of Thailand on the Andaman Sea is comprised of several districts. Archaeological evidence shows humans inhabited the area 25,000-30,000 years ago. Its colorful history includes pirates, merchants and sea gypsies.

Visitors looking for a secluded beach have no trouble locating one on from the approximately 132 inhabited and uninhabited islands. Tourists can participate in a number of water-related activities, including kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, shipwreck diving, sea cave exploration and fishing. The coral reefs are beautiful, and the sea is filled with exotic marine life.

The numerous and towering limestone cliffs draw rock climbers from around the world, with different levels of difficulty available, including climbs for beginners. Attractions include wildlife sanctuaries, natural hot springs, national parks, Buddhist shrines and temples, kickboxing matches, snake handling, shopping and more.

Travelers’ Demand Equals Additional Airline Routes
Before Krabi began to grow in popularity, most of the tourists came from Scandinavian countries and Europe. With positive economic changes in Asia, many travelers started coming from Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore and China, yet flights were few and far between. Recently, however, the airline industry has responded with a host of new routes and flights to Krabi.

In addition to their flights from Singapore and Bangkok that began last year, AirAsia just introduced a new round-trip route that flies between Guangzhou, on mainland China, and Krabi.

Malaysian Airlines, Bangkok Airways, and Tiger Airways have all increased the number of flights to and from Krabi, while the number of charter flights from Europe, Russia and Australia is also growing.

Krabi Nakharin Hospital, Krabi’s New First-Rate Medical Facility
Those travelers who fear that there are no advanced care medical facilities in Krabi can now rest easy. Krabi Nakharin is Krabi’s newly opened advanced-care hospital, rivaling the sterling reputation of the medical facilities in Bangkok. Knowing top-notch medical care is locally available is of great importance to older retirees and those planning extended vacations in Krabi.

The Growing Krabi Hospitality Industry
Just as there has been a need for additional airline flights to Krabi, there has been a need for more accommodations to house the growing number of visitors. With a lot of new construction, the hospitality industry has grown to be able to accommodate all the travelers coming to Krabi.

There are many different types of accommodations from which to choose: hostels, guesthouses, budget inns and hotels, boutique resorts, bed and breakfasts, and private villas. Big hotel consortiums, like the Ibis Styles Hotel with its newly opened 206-room facility, are coming to Krabi.

Krabi Beach House, New Rental Villas Offered by Krabi Riviera
Krabi Riviera Co., Ltd. is a well-established villa management and construction company in Krabi, Thailand, specializing in private luxury vacation homes. With the expected record-breaking high season and increased tourism, the company recently completed six new villas.

The Krabi Beach House is one of their newest editions. With enough accommodations to house 8-10 guests comfortably, it is the perfect holiday rental for a family reunion, a wedding, or a friends’ get-together.

Situated on a private beach, the villa has four individual, air-conditioned suites. All were built around the central living areas: a lounging TV/media room, a dining room, and open-air living space, providing maximum privacy and quiet.

The outdoors complements the beauty of the interior, with a private saltwater swimming pool surrounded by a deck that leads down to the landscaped gardens and the beach. Guests can use one of the villa’s two kayaks to paddle over to nearby Railay Beach, or arrange with the on-site concierge to have a longtail or speedboat pick them up at their private beach and take them to their desired location.

Pierre Yves Loriers, Managing Director of Krabi Riviera Villas said, “Krabi Beach House is the ultimate in private luxury villas. With its own fully equipped kitchen and beautifully appointed home sitting on a private beach, surrounded by lush gardens fronting the Andaman Sea, guests think they have found paradise on earth.”

As with all of Krabi Riviera’s other properties, the Krabi Beach House has wireless Wi-Fi Internet throughout the property, as well as 24/7 security.
The tourist industry is very excited about the coming high season, and all involved are prepared to ensure that travelers to Krabi have a memorable experience.

The realWITS Company Launches Websites for Real Estate Companies Dubbed “Smarter”

An experienced and respected real estate participant and An experienced and respected real estate participant and SEO adviser has launched a new company, realWITS, to help brokers design actionable real estate company websites, get better results and learn how to integrate sales campaigns with modern techniques of leveraging real estate SEO benefits, providing interactive customer service and challenging not only with local online competitors but also with highly recognized online consumer real estate portals.

Real Estate Web Development Demands Compelling Websites

The company’s mantra is “Smarter Real Estate Websites,” and its mission is to educate real estate professionals about online marketing trends so that they can create more functional websites, optimize searches, integrate modern applications and produce dynamic content.

The real estate industry has traditionally resisted change, but modern real estate Web development and real estate SEO for websites require transformations from conservative advertising and marketing strategies to engage new generations of clients.

Randi Thornton, founder of realWITS, has built a reputation as the go-to SEO Google Gurufrom many years of experience in website development, online promotion and the real estate industry. Many real estate websites treat their online efforts as sideline activities or hobbies, and after working with big branded real estate company websites, Thornton feels strongly that the industry fail to take advantage of their full online marketing potential.

Major problems in most company real estate websites include the following shortcomings:

• Brokers do not control their online presence and messaging.
• Website designs fail to meet the needs of people who search online.
• Real estate websites struggle to achieve strong SEO rankings because of the original website build-out.
• Lack of regular technology upgrades force websites to become outdated.
• Failure to take advantage of website lead-generating capabilities.

Smarter Websites Integrate Design, Content and Functionality

Many real estate companies limit their prospects by only trying to compete with other brokerages, a strategy which fails to take advantage of today’s technologies used by other successful industries and the interactive potential of online marketing.

A popular destination real estate broker website strategically focuses on integration of successful leading websites approaches across all industries, and marketers need to incorporate key elements of design, fresh content, Google rankings, mobile technology, and fast processing speeds to keep up with competitors.

Savvy real estate brokers can optimize website performance by considering the following elements of design and function:

Create Distinctive Designs

Website design generates the platforms that launch successful online real estate marketing campaigns, and conceptual elements should compel a casual online website visitor to engage with actionable functionality by incorporating visually appealing design, easy to navigate structures and an intuitive user experience.

• Forward-thinking real estate brokers will take a look around them and learn from other applications that have gone viral.
• Stunning designs often depend on using a simplistic look and feel, clean site architecture, complementary color schemes, accessible search and intuitive controls.
• Functional copy includes compelling content that delivers quantifiable local communications that help buyers make informed and quicker buying decisions.
• A real estate company website needs to offer photo-centric platforms for property listings.
• Websites attract and retain buyers and sellers with property explore functionality that exposes robust search activity.
• Proper usage of on-site real estate SEO including keyword density, on-page SEO best practice techniques, optimize company brands, local authority rankings and online reputations.

Fluidity VS Static

Smarter real estate company websites create fluid designs that make incorporating changes and updating copy easy to accomplish. Google search engines now place great emphasis on freshness of content when ranking websites in organic searches. Effective sites leave room to make modular changes in designs and copy to take advantage of new technology and online trends.

Growing Impact of Mobile Devices

Consumers increasingly use their mobile devices to find products and services, keep track of personal appointments, make social connections and interact with local businesses. Real estate company website designs need to look good and provide searches with the information they seek on a variety of mobile-device screens.

Monitoring Traffic and Online Behavior

Analytic tools study behind-the-scenes practices and chart consumer behavior to help website owners tweak their designs, change their design strategies and respond to customer concerns and feedback. Smarter real estate company websites use these tools to generate leads, predict consumer behavior, stay ahead of marketing trends and create better real estate SEO campaigns.

Real Estate SEO Marketing

Real estate SEO (search engine optimization) marketing works differently than traditional advertising, and learning to leverage the benefits of on-site SEO helps real estate companies establish online authority, build reputations, interact and create enthusiasm for buyers and sellers, regions and neighborhoods.

Clever brokers will take advantage of unique community real estate data so people revisit for information and connections with a relevant, trend setting online real estate source.
Pinterest Type Usage of Imagery

Effective online real estate marketing requires correct usage of photos to productively showcase properties. No matter how well written a property description is it will never grab the attention of a buyer better than a picture will.

The main emphasis of a company real estate website should be imagery that tells a story and conveys “I want to see more” from buyers, says Randi Thornton.

The realWITS company offers expert real estate company website design, on site-SEO application, education, and strategy for savvy brokers who want to produce above-average returns from their online marketing dollars. The company will function as an authoritative source of designs, strategies and consultations on all the issues that impact a real estate company website.

There is More to London Offices Than the Buildings Found on the Postcards

LondonOffices.com, a leading online resource for serviced offices in London, offers premier office space in the city’s iconic buildings and many others which can be just as beneficial.

London is home to some of the most important and prestigious business addresses in the world, but companies don’t have to choose the properties on the postcards to make the right move for their company.

The extensive range of serviced offices in London is diverse, with something for businesses of every size, in every commercial sector.

One of the keys to finding the right serviced office space in London for any business is choosing the right part of the city for your industry. The capital is home to thriving hubs of finance, media, information technology and much more. The most important part on a new office search is choosing serviced offices in the area of the city which suits the company best.

The vast majority of serviced offices in London will offer the facilities required to meet the day to day need of a business, but they won’t all be in the perfect part of the city. Why is this important? Because the close proximity of their peers, networking opportunites and the major players in their industry are advantage not to be missed.

With a little research into the various exciting business hubs that are active within the capital, it’s possible to choose a commercial location at the heart of an industry hotspot. The perfect office building might not be found on a postcode or the cover of a glossy magazine, but it can play a pivotal role inallowing the organisation to thrive and compete.

The City of London is one of the financial capitals of the world, so for hedge funds, investment firms and commodity traders, it pays to set up shop in The City. Many major banking and financial institutions have headquarters here, and they rub shoulders with the offices of 500 banks. The LondonOffices.com online portfolio features a variety of premium serviced offices in the city. These bespoke commercial locations have been carefully selected for the quality of their facilities and the strategic benefits of their locations and nearby transport links.

For IT start-ups the steely skyscrapers of The City have nothing on the off-beat office environments of East End London. Internet and technology giants like Google and Apple have taken residence in the East End. Intel, Facebook and Cisco are also neighbours, as East London Tech City continues to be seen as the UK’s Silicon Valley. You won’t find many of these quirky commercial spaces on the postcards either, but they could be the different between the success and failure of a web-based venture.

At the LondonOffices.com site a selection of handpicked serviced offices are waiting to be explored; by area, by postcode or by interactive street map. It couldn’t be simpler to browse the LondonOffices.com portfolio and find excellent commercial properties for any organisation. Premium Office Space Reports are available by request and a team of serviced office experts are waiting to deal directly with any queries at 020 7166 7981.

Realter (Rltr) Approved As Official Title For Real Estate Professionals Worldwide

There is a new officially approved professional title for real estate practitioners — Realter. This word will soon find its way as new entry in the dictionary, and it will read as follows:

REALTER. Definition: [A patented service mark. Pronunciation: \\rē(-ə)l-tər, rē-al-tər\\.Abbreviation: Rltr.. Plural: Realters. Verb intransitive: Realteer. Verb present participle: Realteering. Verb past participle: Realteered]. Referring to real estate service practitioners who are registered in Realter Society and given extension of license by its patent owner. Realter and its abbreviation Rltr are exclusively used as professional titles before the names of members of Realter Society worldwide.

After 14 months of due diligence by experts in the Intellectual Property Office Philippines (IPOPHIL), the RLTR REALTER SOCIETY INTERNATIONAL 2011, its website REALTERSOCIETY.ORG, its service mark (logo), and manner of use were finally approved on 28 September 2012; and awarded with Trademark Registration No. 42011990441.

Real estate practitioners anywhere around the world, regardless of nationality, who want to use this prestigious Realter (Rltr) professional title may individually apply for extension of patent license by registering in Realter Society. The innovator defines the term professional practitioner as a service provider who does it for a living (for a fee).

Qualified to register are real estate financiers; agents such as brokers, salespersons, auctioneers, referral agents, buyer agents; dealers, short sellers, operators of for-sale-by-owner (FSBO) advertising facilities; administrators of condominium and subdivision homeowners associations; general managers of hotels, resorts, and golf and country clubs; registrar of deeds; educators; builders such as developers, architects, interior designers, construction consultants; valuers such as appraisers, assessors; documenters such as liaison officers, publishers of real estate classified ads, photographers; and scholars.

Realter Society members get the following rights: (1) the right to use the patented Realter and Rltr professional titles and logo, (2) the right to enjoy the award policy of Realter Society, and (3) the right to wear exclusive insignia products of Realter Society.

A person with a Rltr title before his/her name need not explain too much that he/she is in the real estate sector. The Rltr title bearer enjoys the automatic public perception that he/she is a real estate service practitioner.

Rltr title operates like a powerful slogan; it is short, easily said, catchy, and has quick recall factor. Since it is a new title, having it in your business card would trigger curiosity, then it becomes a conversation starter which can possibly propagate to customer inquiries that may open up a wide door of business opportunities for the Rltr® title-bearer.

Realter Society is designed solely as REGISTRY of the Rltr® title users. Realter Society does NOT offer real estate products (such as house, lots, condo units, burial lots, etc.) nor services (such as agency, appraisal, build consultancy, etc.). Realter Society has no intention to compete with the respective businesses and organizations of its individual members.

The individual membership registration fee in Realter Society is P2.00 per day, prorated from the day the person registers up to the general renewal date of 28 September 2022. Incumbent Assessors of Local Government Units and Regional Directors of Registry of Deeds are exempted from the membership fee.

The innovator of this new professional title is Rltr. John R. Petalcorin, born in Maramag Bukidnon PH in 1973, a product of the College of Economics and Management of the University of the Philippines at Los Banos, and a licensed real estate broker since 1998 specialized in pro bono consumer rights advocacy and peer coaching.

Ligne Roset is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Wanted Design NYC

Ligne Roset is proud to announce its sponsorship of the Wanted Design NYC, a fresh and exciting addition to Design Week, held in New York City. This creative platform for international designers, architects, and manufacturers to discuss and share exciting, inspiring and innovative ideas will take place from May 13 through May 16.

Creations designed by Philippe Nigro include Inseparables and T.U., and some of the new pieces making their debut Stateside will be Passio, Cuts and Stripes. Inseparable is a multifunctional piece which can act as a sofa end table, seat or simply a foot rest. The table can be slotted into the footstool or kept separately. The T.U. table also demonstrates a versatile quality as it has reversible top panels which can be flipped to show different materials and colors or can be altered in terms of width and height to suit the room or occasion. The sofa Passio is the introduction to our new outdoor collection. Its inventive design was conceived for indoor living, but the choice of materials allows it to be enjoyed outdoors. Nigro’s signature themes of intersections and interlocking elements are apparent in the arms and back. His passion for repetition and variation continues with the bookcase Cuts and with the pendant lamp Stripes.

In conjunction with Wanted Design, Ligne Roset’s Soho showroom will decorate its window with Ploum, one of the most exciting pieces to come out of IMM Cologne 2011. Designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, this will mark the first time Ploum will be seen in North America.

Luxury Home Sales Outperform Other Price Ranges This Summer

Gloomy news that July sales of existing homes dropped 25.5% year-over-year has overshadowed new statistics showing summer sales of million dollar plus homes significantly outperformed other price ranges.

“Luxury home buyers have been buying this summer,” said Patty Da Silva, Broker – Owner REALTOR® of Green Realty and member of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing . “After waiting in the wings, many affluent buyers spent the summer shopping for value and snapping up trophy properties.”

Statistics would indicate that he’s right. According to The National Association of Realtors (NAR), for 2009 million-dollar and above home sales were just 1.2% of total sales or about 61,500 sales nationally. In July 2010, million dollar plus market share was up to 1.9%. While sales of homes in the $500,000 and above range rose dramatically in June, the million-dollar-plus market segment was the only price range in July showing positive growth compared to last year. “The mix of what is selling has shifted in favor of homes priced at $750,000 and above,” said Christopher Green, CDPE, REALTOR® and Manager of Green Realty.

NAR’s report that July’s median sales price increased 0.7% year-over-year may be more a function of increasing sales of expensive properties relative to other price ranges than an indicator of across-the-board home price appreciation.

According to the Institute for Luxury Home Market (ILHM) National Luxury Market Report — which does a weekly analysis of luxury homes for sale in more than 30 major markets — after a dramatic rise in upper-tier inventory, which started in January of this year, the numbers of luxury homes for sale has declined about 5% since the beginning of July. Along with a decrease in inventory, there has been a decline in asking prices. Forty three percent of luxury homes currently on the market have had at least one reduction in asking price over the last 90 days. An additional 19% have been pulled off the market and subsequently relisted.

“While I wouldn’t say the luxury market is in recovery,” said Da Silva, “the growing market share of luxury sales relative to total sales, a slight downward trend in inventory, and sellers who are more realistic about price are factors shifting the affluent into a buying mode.”
