John Elwell Ranks in Top 60 Agents in C21 Florida and Wins Pacesetter Award for 1st Half of 2011

Award August 20110001 

This morning at our weekly office meeting I was presented with the certificate you see above. It indicates that I am currently on track to get a Masters Award by the end of 2011. That is if all goes well. I will sure do my part and we just need the ecomony to cooperate a bit!

CENTURY 21's national headquarters also has just released its rankings for the year-to-date ending with the last day of July 2011.

Based on "sale sides", I was in the Top 60 agents of the thousands who working in this large section of Florida. It is nice to see that the company is noticing the work I do.

Bill Nye Logo-SignOne reason I am successful is my broad use of the internet. Unlike many agents, I do not rely on just the few websites that all listings are automatically placed on. Instead, I have purchased sites of my own and also utilize many of those offered by other companies. At this time, my listings are on over 50 internet sites and often come up high on the result list when buyers conduct searches. By doing this, I also control the content and can load the sites with high quality pictures that buyers love to see. I also pay extra to get special treatment for my listings on some sites like REALTOR.com. This way I can feature my listings and get them more prominent exposure than those of many other agents.

My latest innovation is the addition of video tours of my listings. I purchased a high-definition camera, and with the help of my computer, I can put together nice videos of each home with commentary, captions, background music, etc. These can be easily accessed by users of the internet via YouTube.com and other sites. Pretty neat, and something that tech savy people love to see! Just another way to make sure each home gets plenty of effective exposure to the home buying public.

Whether you are buying or selling a home in this area, I would be happy to meet with you and show you how I can help you achieve your goals.
