John Elwell Designated "Master Ruby" Winner for 2013 by CENTURY 21

Ruby Masters Award from Century 21
Last week I was notified by CENTURY 21 that in 2013 I had achieved the "Master Ruby Award" level for sales production last year.

In 2013 I was also consistently in the Top 100 agents in northern and central Florida based on the number of sales sides that I had. Not bad considering that there are about 4,000 CENTURY 21 agents serving that area in various brokerages.

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 This way I can feature my listings and get them more prominent exposure than those of many other agents.

My customers also like the fact that I personally create video tours of most of my listings. I have a high-definition video 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 and links from 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.
