There are studies that you can read online that show most home buyers find a property on the internet now anyway. The listing agent really needs to get you exposure through your local multiple listing services which can span a long range in Florida. It really shouldn't matter where the realtor that you are listing your property with is located as long as they can give you the MLS access in your area they will be able to offer accessibility to the online real estate agent network portal which is the multiple listing services. You will also enable various websites through syndication of your house online through major real estate websites like Trulia and Zillow regardless of who you list a home with. The reality is that as long as the real estate agent or realtor can bring you valid buyers through online marketing and MLS exposure then you shouldn't worry about where the listing agent is located. ... more

Nadine Mauro answered:

There are lots of nice houses in the Deerfield Beach area.

You say you want 2 bedrooms, and I assume you would also want two baths. There are many condos, villas, and single family houses available.

Do you have any pets? Some communities have restrictions on size and type of dog.

How soon do you want to move in? Will you be coming to Florida to look for houses, or are you planning to do it all from Connecticut?

Give me some more information and I will customize a search based on your criteria.

You can call, text or email and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

It will be very difficult to locate an apartment or landlord that will allow your dog but there is a way around it. If you would like to make the process easier you can register your dog as a service dog and they cannot deny you because of the dog. You can register your dog here:

The only way you would be able to have a dog in Century Village is if it is an emotional support dog. There are a few of them there and it seems to be more and more I see every time I visit. Best wishes, hope this works out for you. ... more

I have never had a form to remove anyone from lease. I would just do an addendum to remove her from the lease.

Brian Kurtz answered:
Run a little experiment. Imagine that Terra, the god of real estate, came to you one day and told you that you had to pick two or three cities in which you would do business. Whichever cities you selected would be your turf and you would DOMINATE those areas taking more listings than anymore else. You would also be shackled with a curse that you would never be able to close a transaction either representing a buyer or a seller OUTSIDE of the cities you decided to choose.

If I were you, I'd go with an area that have nice homes owned by nice people which are in a good price range. I would be willing to MOVE to get to those prime areas. But the choices is yours.

Now that you have those cities in mind, go into your MLS and run a search for all sold homes in those two cities for the last year. Find out what the count is. I'm guessing that there should be at least 1400 and probably double that. You really only have to close 50 transaction sides out of 1400 sales (which is really 2800 transaction sides) to make a GOOD living. That's really only 1.8% of the market. Keep that in mind.

Now realize that out of those 1,400 people who sold last year and the 1,400 who are going to sell in the next 12 months...a TON of them (most in fact) really are not hard-core people who are dragging 3 agents through to do presentations then selecting the "best" one for the job. MOST are really just picking someone they know/like/trust. At least 40% of these transactions will go to friends/family members that are agents. That's how the game works. That leaves at LEAST 840 sales (1680 trans. sides) for you to pick up.

Find the sellers and then follow up until they're ready to sell. I mean, I've VOTED for politicians just because they showed up at my front door and nobody else did. Seriously. Follow up 5 or 10 times and the point will be made that you're a hard worker. Why NOT go with you?

Finally, after EVERY transaction, write a testimonial for your clients. Put yourself in their shoes and try to write it as if they were writing it. Focus in on the things that they focused on while you were working together. Put their names on it. Ask them to review it once the closing docs are done. Ask them if they felt it "was a good representation of their feelings about working with you" and when they say yes hand them a BLUE felt-tip FLAIR pen and ask them to sign it. Scan it in so you can reproduce it in color forever and ever. After 12 sales you'll have 12 of these things. Nobody else gives these out to prospects. You'll INSTANTLY stand out from the crowd.

If you are buying a home you should use a mortgage professional because they will have to pull it when they do your loan. They can also guide you if your credit is less than perfect to get you in the right position to buy.

Feel free to call me if you would like assistance...
