St. Petersburg, FL, August 27, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Keller Williams Realty St. Pete opened its downstairs Luxury Suite in 2013 when the Yes-Homes team joined the brokerage. The Luxury Suite is an upscale office off Beach Drive in downtown St. Petersburg. It’s a prime location for Keller Williams (KW) Realty’s Realtors to meet with clients, prepare for open houses, freely advertise luxury listings and collaborate with the nine luxury Realtors that call the Luxury Suite home.
“I chose to become a luxury real estate agent because it was a way to better serve my buyers and sellers through a more thorough understanding of the market,” said Joe Moledo, luxury Realtor with Keller Williams Realty St. Pete.
To be a luxury real estate agent, Realtors must have closed at least two transactions valued at $500,000 or more each year and obtain the Certified Luxury Homes Marketing Specialist (CLHMS). The luxury homes division of KW Realty provides its luxury Realtors with a global reach: last year, $70 billion of American real estate was purchased by international buyers.
“The biggest advantage of having the CLHMS certification is the knowledge base it provides,” said Kim vanHerwynen, luxury Realtor with Keller Williams Realty St. Pete. “This certification provides us the knowledge of how and what media to utilize when marketing the home to the appropriate target market.”
Each Realtor, upon joining one of the many KW Realty brokerages, is provided with proven systems and models that benefit the Realtor by educating one how to run a successful business. KW Realty is committed to providing its Realtors with the technology, training and tools they need to fund their life and create opportunities. KW Realty is committed to delivering the platform Realtor’s buyers and sellers prefer.
“Being a part of a team means the Realtor has people behind him/her to support their business, increase their credibility, provide advertising, encourage and assist with positive networking events and opportunities and mentorship to help the individual reach his/her personal goals,” said Marian Yon Maguire with Yes-Homes at Keller Williams Realty St. Pete.
“The best advice I could give anyone looking to become a luxury real estate agent is to dress for success and join the elite social circles, such as country clubs and museum memberships to gain exposure and networking opportunities,” said Rhonda Sanderford with Yes-Homes at Keller Williams Realty St. Pete.
