Case Study-Manasota Key
Sellers had previously listed 744 N Manasota Key Rd with other localized realtors who frequently work the Manasota Key Island. For approximately two years the property was listed with no activity and offers.
Engel and Volkers, a true international and luxury real estate firm, focused on the most exclusive of real estate properties around the world to include, castles, chateaus, islands, and beachfront properties discussed with the sellers taking over the property and listing it.
Multi award winning Luxury Real Estate Advisor, Evan Pedone, who has represented properties ranging from $1 million to over $12 million took on the listing with an all above the board approach. Feedback was given to the sellers, as to why the property was not selling, and what it would take to sell. Price was not the road block, as many real estate agents frequently focus on.
Marketing included bringing two distinctly different photographers with different styles to shoot the property to ensure that the photos told the story. Mr. Pedone also brought in a film producer/cinematographer to shoot video of the property so buyers from around the world could see it, in its true glory. Once the marketing material was finalized with extensive brochures ranging from one page expose', to full on four page booklets, and social media marketing, television advertising through the Engel and Volkers network, and online distribution through hundreds of the best real estate advertising websites to include the Wall Street Journal, and New York Times international, as well as the coveted Engel and Volker network, the offers came in.
The first offer to purchase the home, came in within the first week. The second offer came in within the next week. A total of three interested parties were interested in purchasing the home. The sellers went under contract within several weeks of listing, and closed within 45 days.
Below is the review from the seller:
"Evan was a pleasure to work with. Our house had been on the market for over two years with a broker/adviser. Within 6 days of listing the house with Evan, we had our first offer. Within another 20 days, we had our second offer and we closed some 45 days later. If you are looking to buy or sell high end real estate Evan and the E & V team have the connections and capabilities to market to high end clientele. I can tell you from 2 long years of inactivity, that is a skill set which is lacking by even the most prestigious regional real estate advisers and firms."
Evan Pedone of Engel and Volkers is now actively seeking more properties on Manasota Key. Mr. Pedone actively represents the most exclusive clientele of both buyers and sellers, and has worked with clients ranging from executives in the entertainment industry to healthcare, as well as Olympians, and Celebrities.
