Who joined forces in the South Florida real estate industry in October to help agents up their game, and who’s rolling out new products? Here’s our rundown, in chronological order.
Builders Digital Experience (BDX) announced partnerships with the Realtors Association of the Palm Beaches, Miami Association of Realtors, Staten Island Board of Realtors, My Regional Florida MLS and Bakersfield Association of Realtors. “With our partners in this effort, nearly 400,000 Realtors have direct access to New Home Source Professional through their MLS today,” said Tim Costello, President and CEO of BDX, in a statement. “More than half of all home shoppers consider new construction, so it’s imperative that we continue this industry collaboration to help agents and brokers serve their clients.”
Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate acquired the assets of Island Estates Realty in Clearwater, Florida, which will now operate as Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate. “Our company is actively growing operations across West Central Florida, and there is great demand for homes in the surrounding Tampa Bay area, making this acquisition a strategic opportunity for us,” said Clark Toole, president of Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate in Florida, in a statement. “The skilled sales associates at Island Estates Realty have the reputation for knowing the market inside and out, and we are thrilled to welcome them to our company.”
HomeUnion has added Tampa, Florida, to its list of active investment markets. “The Tampa area enjoys a diverse economic base that continues to grow, adding new jobs and attracting new companies to the area,” said Don Ganguly, CEO of HomeUnion, in a statement. “The solid economic base combined with the strong demand for rental properties means that investors can enjoy sustainable, relatively high yields through their investment, which is particularly attractive when compared to the low yields available in other cash-producing investments like CDs and bonds.”
