Release: Top Sarasota Real Estate Agents Join Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty

(SARASOTA, FL) -  The Team of Betty Mullinnix and Steve Abbe, formerly of Michael Saunders & Co., has recently joined Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty as licensed real estate Sales Professionals. The announcement was made by Elaine Glandon, Regional Vice President, Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty.

Betty Mullinnix has been active in Real Estate for 33 years, and a broker for 29 years. She specializes in luxury, high-end golf and waterfront properties and has spent 26 years selling in The Oaks. She has also worked for Builders and Developers selling new home product, and as a result, she has acquired a vast amount of knowledge in construction methods, finishes, decorating, and floor plans.

“I believe our customers, most of which are repeat or referred, deserve the highest degree of integrity, professionalism, personal attention and commitment.  Aligning with the Berkshire Hathaway brand allows us to continue those same values of trust, integrity, strength, and longevity that our customers deserve!” commented Mullinnix.   

In 2004 Betty’s husband Gene, joined her full time. He had recently retired from a successful 20 year career in Mortgage Banking in which he held positions as VP Residential Lending at SouthTrust Bank, AVP Washington Mutual Bank in Residential Commercial Construction, served as President of Gulf Coast Mortgage Bankers Association, SW Florida manager DeGeorge Mortgage Corp and various other lending positions in the Sarasota/Manatee area. He is experienced in sales training, management and leadership.                  

In 2007 Steve Abbe joined Betty and Gene, forming the Abbe/Mullinnix team, creating a full service group.  “We work as a team to ensure that our customers always receive 100% personal attention and dedication,” continued Mullinnix.

Steve Abbe is a Class A PGA Golf Professional and was the Head Golf Professional in Sarasota at TPC and The Oaks Club for over 15 years. Steve also spent time as a Golf Course Superintendent as well as Projects Manager/Construction Superintendent, building several golf courses around the US.

In 2004 Steve brought his expertise in golf to the real estate world. Steve’s approach to golf real estate is to fit his clients with the appropriate golf lifestyle based on their individual needs. Steve has knowledge of the dynamics of every country club, knows every course intimately - right down to the type of grass that is on every green. Steve’s extensive knowledge allows him to match his clients’ lifestyle to a golf course community first and the home purchase is a close second.

Steve found almost immediate success in real estate and was in the top 5% of all realtors in Sarasota his first year. Steve’s unique experience and expertise combined have made him the sought after authority in golf course communities for sellers, buyers and other realtors alike.

Because of his extensive sphere of influence in the golf world nationwide, and his unique website www.sarasotagolfproproperties.com, Steve is sought after by buyers looking for property in golf course communities from all over the country. This is a great benefit to Steve’s listing customers, as he is most certain to show their properties to prospective golf community buyers.

Steve prides himself on his integrity and outstanding customer service - skills that were honed over the years serving the members in exclusive private country clubs all over the country. “Our goal is to exceed our clients expectations of service and integrity without exception,” states Abbe.

Steve is a graduate of the University of Georgia with a degree in Business and Marketing. After graduation Steve proudly served his country as an Infantry Officer in the United States Marine Corps.

As a team, Steve and Betty achieved several industry honors including the Top 1% in sales and marketing in Sarasota in six of the last seven years and have sold more golf properties than any other Realtor(s) in Sarasota/Manatee.  

“It is apparent that the Mullinnix and Abbe Team share Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty’s commitment to exceeding customer expectations through trust, integrity, passion, and knowledge,” said Rei L. Mesa, president, C.E.O., Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty. “They are precisely the type of sales professionals we are seeking, as we continue to grow the company, and increase our presence in the local Sarasota community.”

“Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty’s focus on the customers’ overall experience and the company’s goal to provide the best products, services, and leadership for its sales professionals are what make affiliating with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty the best choice possible,” said Abbe.

The Abbe / Mullinnix Team will be working under the leadership of Mike Holland, the Managing Broker in the Sarasota and Lakewood Ranch Branch Sales Offices of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Realty.  Betty Mullinnix can be contacted at 941-928-3441, BettyMullinnix@BHHSFloridaRealty.net and Steve Abbe can be contacted at 941-400-3969, SteveAbbe@BHHSFloridaRealty.net or through www.SarasotaGolfProProperties.com.

Waterfront and Resort Living: Chatham, Massachusetts

 

 

By Monica Cavanaugh

The standard set forth by Cape Cod—that singular aura of classic Americana with an entire style of architecture named after the shingled, shuttered beauties lining its coast—is something many beach communities only dream of reaching.

Chatham, sitting pretty at the elbow of the Cape, with Nantucket Sound on one side and the Atlantic on the other, lives up to the hype.

“It’s a quintessential New England town,” says Chris Rhinesmith, co-owner of Pine Acres Realty. On Friday nights, people gather and dance at the bandstand shows in the midst of downtown. A summer baseball league delights fans young and old. Vibrant shops and restaurants line historic streets. In the distance, sailboats dot the deep blue harbor.

Though Chatham has a year-round population of just 6,000, the summer months see the numbers top 30,000, which makes the seaside town a go-to for investors and shore-lovers alike.

With Boston and its suburbs just 90 minutes away, Rhinesmith says many of his buyers are looking for second homes that they can enjoy for leisurely vacation time, and then rent for the remainder of the season.

“We handle 250 different properties that we rent for owners,” he says. Those buyers, whose waterfront purchases average between $2 million and $5 million, are seeing excellent returns on their investments, with rental rates ranging from $5,000 to $15,000 per week.

The seaside town is, of course, immensely boater-friendly, boasting four marinas within its borders. However, thanks to a 1987 moratorium on berth-building, “dockage is rare,” says Rhinesmith. “It’spretty coveted if you can find a place with a dock.”

Setai Condos Provide a Personalized Luxury Hotel Experience on Miami Beach

 

Be sure to enjoy the full gallery below, and to learn more, visit www.setai3307.com. Article made possible by Becky Adkins and Scott Klein of Gary Hennes Realtors.

________________

 

Setai Miami Beach can’t keep its name out of the papers and there’s a very good reason why.  This 40-story high-rise built in 2004 defines luxury living and contains 163 modern residences with spectacular panoramic views.  Setai South Beach’s five-star hotel is located adjacent to the condo residences and consists of an eight-story building with 88 guestrooms.  If you need a place that makes a bold and lavish statement, choose the Setai condo.

Setai is known for its very relaxed environment.  Step inside the lobby and explore the Zen influenced interiors or enjoy the services offered.  Amenities include an on-site five-star hotel, a trio of oceanfront swimming pools, lavish gardens, a fitness center and a world-renowned boutique and art store. 

Setai South Beach offers floor plans with one to five bedrooms.  Breathtaking views of the Atlantic Ocean can be enjoyed from floor-to-ceiling glass windows or outside on private balconies.  Black granite countertops, Miele appliances, Kohler fixtures and whirlpool tubs in master bathrooms are some of the additional residential features.  

Enjoy the full gallery below, and to learn more, visit www.setai3307.com

The Setai, a name inspired by the Bahasa Indonesian phrase for “South Beach” inspires a rich heritage of multicultural influences and Far Eastern indulgences.  The Setai offers exclusive access to these services and amenities: 


Setai has the Miami Beach location that places it high above most condominiums in South Florida.  The shopping of Lincoln Road and entertainment of Ocean Drive will always be moments away from Setai, plus the beachfront within walking distance.  With Bal Harbour and Sunny Isles Beach as complements to the north, it makes complete sense to choose the Setai condo.

(PRESS RELEASE) Pebble Beach Chappellet Estate Sells for $16.5 Million 29 Days from Listing with Carmel Realty Company

 

PEBBLE BEACH CHAPPELLET ESTATE SELLS FOR $16.5 MILLION 29 DAYS FROM LISTING WITH CARMEL REALTY COMPANY

 

The historic waterfront property, known as the Chappellet Estate, has been sold for $16.5 million, with agents from Carmel Realty Company representing both the buyer and seller. After being on the market for nearly a decade with a different real estate firm, Carmel Realty Company closed escrow on the Chappellet Estate in just twenty-nine days.

“This is the fourth significant sale in the past twelve months where Carmel Realty Company successfully represented both the buyer and seller. The collaborative nature of our organization benefits our clients through our ability to bring buyers and sellers together, especially on significant sales such as the Chappellet Estate,” said Malone Hodges, Managing Broker of Carmel Realty Company.

Numerous previous offers were made through the years and one made it into escrow with the previous listing firm prior to the deal brokered by Carmel Realty Company listed for $16.9 million.

“This sale is a prime example of proper pricing, target marketing and local expertise resulting in a quick strong offer for the seller. We believe that getting to know the clients, and their goals and needs, is as important as understanding the physical characteristics of the properties we represent and the unique aspects of the local market,” said Peter Butler, Listing Agent at Carmel Realty Company.  

Mike and Jessica Canning, also from Carmel Realty Company, represented the buyer. “With the expansion of discreetly exposed, off-market listings, we’ve focused our endeavors on buyers and sellers looking to engage in that platform, which has given us access to elite buyers interested in significant properties. Combining our network with our colleagues at Carmel Realty Company is what makes closing a significant sale, such as this one, in a short time, even possible,” said Mike Canning, Buyer’s Agent. 

The Chappellet Estate constructed around 1915 is one of the first twenty structures to exist in Pebble Beach. Built in the Craftsman-style, this two-story, four bedroom home with a historically-designated guest cottage, sits on some of the most coveted coastal property in the world. Owned by the Chappellet Family, one of the oldest wine producing families of the Napa Valley, for the past four decades, the property encompasses 2.74 acres along the edge of Stillwater Cove in Pebble Beach, California. One of a handful of estates to share the cove with The Lodge at Pebble Beach, the Chappellet Estate is steps to the 18th green of the famed Pebble Beach Golf Links and offers panoramic views of Pebble Beach Golf Links to Carmel Beach to Point Lobos with the Santa Lucia Mountains of Big Sur as its backdrop.

Napa Consultants: Luxury Real Estate Marketing Tips

3 Ways to Prepare for a Market Upswing

 

As the luxury real estate market recovers in your area, you willn otice that more new agents are diving back into marketing luxury real estate. That means competition is now heating up. Now is the time to prepare in order to out-think your competitors. 

The median sales price for homes in San Francisco jumped 16% in 2013, according to the San Francisco Association of Realtors. This is primarily due to a stronger demand among the "Technorati" who want to live in the city and are content to commute to nearby Silicon Valley.

Whereas your area may not be rebounding as quickly as San Francisco, you must be prepared to protect your turf. To do so, think more like a limpet!

The limpet is a sea snail with a conical shell. The limpet attaches itself to hard surfaces in the ocean. They feed on the algae in the waters and what makes them unique and interesting is that they maintain a garden, which surrounds their home base. When another creature dares to graze in their garden, they push them off by ramming them with their shell, so that their garden can continue to thrive.

For luxury real estate marketing profesisionals, limpet thinking means keeping your garden in order and watching out for interlopers. Here are three ways to prepare for a market upswing:

1. Refresh your personal or company brand

2. Create a new full featured luxury real estate website or update your current one

3. Stay in close communication with your sphere of influence on a regular basis

 

So, think like a limpet, and protect your garden in 2014!
