It’s times like these that we need to remember to get out of the house, frequently. Gather with friends, as many as you can.
Of course last but not least... don’t forget to get out and smell the toilet paper.   #QOOTD

The Personal Reasons
We Went Platinum
Here are 5 great reasons we are now part of
RE/MAX Platinum Realty.

1)   Local offices in Downtown Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, Venice Island, West Villages and Osprey. With 5 offices in prime areas, we can now meet with you and market your properties at any of these locations across Sarasota County and into Manatee as well.

2)   An unmatched global presence. With 20% of all international buyers choosing Florida for their American home, it’s highly beneficial to have our listings translated into the languages around the world. At last count, RE/MAX was in 110+ countries and territories. Steve Martin Homes Group has already helped customers from France, Germany, Hungary, Canada, Britain, Vietnam, Greece and Puerto Rico

3)   Their incredible office and support staff. When you need to....

As of last week we were still allowed to host an open house.

The letter at the bottom was sent out by the Venice Area Board of Realtors regarding that topic. Thinking deeply about all that is involved with an open house, our team brainstormed how we could try to best accomplish all of the very important parts of this process.

 - Potential buyers need to view the entire home
 - The residents of the home need to feel safe
 - Door handles need to be wiped in between each person touching them
 - We need to keep everyone 6 feet apart
 - We must follow the 10 person maximum rule
 - Buyers will have questions. They want to stand around and discuss things.
 - Buyers will need information sheets about the property

This is what we came up with and successfully implemented this past Sunday.
Back in 2015, Katrina and I were just
getting started in our new careers as
Realtor and Home Stager.

Although we had received several nice reviews that year, this one truly showed the appreciation for our efforts like no other. Nothing motivates us more than being appreciated for our efforts and Rich and Kitty communicated through words and actions that they cared about us, as we cared about them. They have remained dear friends since that time and this review still holds the trophy for longest review received by Steve Martin Homes group. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy a good read.
