As a Florida Real Estate Agent I always strive to go above and beyond to help my clients in all their real estate needs. Part of what I offer is assistance with buyers that are looking to purchase a lot to build upon. Being a long time resident of Southwest Florida has helped me create good connections with the best, quality home builders in the area. I also am very familiar with the area, roads, schools and shopping locations to help buying find just the right piece of land that meets all of their personal needs and requirements. If you’re looking to purchase a lot to build on, please give me a call at 239-425-2503 and let’s talk about how I can help!
WASHINGTON – May 27, 2014 – A burst of new-home sales during the previous housing boom stirred up competition among U.S. home builders. After the bubble burst, there was a surplus of fairly new resale homes, which exacerbated builders’ problems: They not only faced lower buyer demand thanks to the recession, but still-interested buyers could get an almost-new home at a bargain foreclosure price.
These nearly new homes boasted modern design, landscaping and interior upgrades, low maintenance requirements, and lower prices – factors that posed formidable competitive challenges for builders.
Now, however, the new home market appears to be swinging in the opposite direction. Almost-new homes – one that would have been built during the height of the recession – are in short supply.
Buyers longing for new homes now must rely on builders since fewer enter the resale market.
The change, in some areas, has put home builders back in the driver’s seat in satisfying new buyer demand.

It is a story with a compelling message that friendship really matters to women…. and it matters a lot. Through their interactions, the six women in this book weathered difficult transitions, gathered wisdom, and developed enduring relationships that, when shared, made each woman stronger than she could ever have been on her own.
The women are planning a series of retreats for women based on the fundamentals shared in the stories of this book. The focus of the teachings will be on self empowerment, support and inspiration for individuals and as a group. These workshops will have structured exercises that will enable participants to see the best in themselves and in others as well as develop the necessary skills to communicate, inspire and empower each other to overcome their greatest challenges and find success in life.

Six Figures is one of those rare books that grabs a hold of you from deep within and doesn’t let you go until the last page. Even then, you’re left with the incredible craving for more… more real life stories of love, friendship, laughter, learning, tears and inspiration. Meet an amazing group of professional women – “Bad Girls” – Barbara, Lauri, Lee, Susan, Gina and Nicki – who were on a quest for a successful career, a better life and deeper relationships, all from different states, backgrounds and age groups who come together in an “accidental” meeting at a business conference in Minnesota. Take a trip with them down memory lane as they each take turns retelling their version of the blossoming of a wonderful friendship that has weathered the years of life’s greatest up’s, downs and in-betweens. Prepare to find yourself laughing out loud and reaching for the Kleenex box while rethinking your own life and searching to reconnect with your long-lost girlfriends! This is truly an inspiring real story about six women on a journey to find success, themselves and each other in the process! Definitely a MUST READ!
We are SIX PROFESSIONAL BUSINESS WOMEN who are on a mission to inspire, empower and unite women of all walks of life. Our goal is to help eliminate limiting beliefs that hold women back from reaching their goals. Our dream is to inspire women to take positive action and reach their full potential while giving themselves permission to reach out to others for help and support. We believe that women can accomplish so much more if they have the love, support and encouragement of their girlfriends and allow themselves to release any beliefs that impede success. We all have greatness within us; we just need someone to help us see how truly great we all are! – Barbara, Lauri, Lee, Susan, Gina and Nicki
“Six Figures left me wishing I was number seven in their amazing group of girlfriends on a quest for a successful career, a better life and deeper relationships. I found myself picking up the phone to dial old friends and reconnecting with my girls and finding my own support and power team. These women inspired me to take my career to the next level, be true to myself, reach out to my friends, have more fun and experience life in greater fashion!”

YOU CAN’T PLEASE YOUR CUSTOMERS UNLESS YOU KNOW THEM!
Customer Service is a big part of every business and unfortunately it’s one that often gets forgotten. Every year business owners spend hundreds and thousands of dollars in advertising, marketing, getting the best packaging for their product, securing the perfec t location, etc… – it’s all a part of doing business, right? So why doesn’t it always work? Well often times they are missing a really big element – Customer Service! In this new blog series we’re going to review several tips, tricks and ideas on how you can become a successful business person by improving your customer service skills! If you missed it, click here to read Part 1.
Part 2 of “THE FOUR CRITICAL STEPS TO CUSTOMER LOYALTY”
2. KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER!
If we take a look at the big business successes of the past it’s not that difficult to see that the leader or person in charge of that company or business had a pretty good idea of what the end-user wanted and was then able to fill the need in a manner that made the client happy. Take Steve Jobs for example – he was able to take Apple from a dream idea to a household name with products that everyone doesn’t just want but HAS to have and right now… how? He had a knack for knowing what people wanted. Even when everyone else around him said it was crazy, impossible or a waste of time, he not only made it happen but he created a success out of it.
Now I know we all can’t be Steve Jobs and we certainly don’t have crystal ball or magic powers to see what our potential customers want but there are plenty of fundamental and basic tips to great customer service. There is a lot that you can do as a provider of a product or service to research and learn more about your customers and what they need. Below are just a few tips to help you get started!
- Know their timing needs.
- Try to anticipate their needs in advance.
- Be able to ‘READ” their attitude.
- Practice skillful listening with care.
- Create two-way dialog.

Knapp Consultants would like to take this opportunity to Thank You for taking the time out of your busy day to share a few moments with us.
Here at Knapp Consultants, we understand that the level of success we have in our business and in our lives can be directly measured by the level of gratitude we have in our daily life. On this note we’d like to share a few thoughts on gratitude with you today and in the days to come.
Think about this … what if you took just ten minutes each morning to focus on your “attitude of gratitude?” What do you have to be grateful for?
Gratitude is best reflected in how you act toward and respond to others.
Create your culture of being grateful. How can you be more gracious with you’re your family and your customers?
Are you anticipating the needs of people you care about?
It’s within the smallest details where we uncover the greatest opportunities.
Gratitude is a state of being.
You only live once – but if you work it right, once is enough

Do you have any Sales Training Questions? Click Here to ASK LEE!
Do you want more out of your internet presence? Are you interested in improving your Google listings? Do you wish you had more control over your website? Are you tired of paying those outrageous monthly fees?
If you said YES to any of these questions, this article is for YOU!
It’s safe to say that advertising isn’t what it used to be and the yellow pages just aren’t enough anymore. In today’s challenging economy we have to make sure we do everything necessary to stay above the competition and put our name and logo in front of our clients and potential clients on a regular basis in order to keep our business alive. Studies show that more and more people are looking online for their products and service than anywhere else. This is why you should have a website that really represents you and your business in the best way possible.
We are now a fast moving society that has become accustomed to marketing that speaks to us, jumps out at us and even grabs us! Black and white, plain, old, drab and boring is definitely a thing of the past! Your website is your 24 hour salesperson and should represent you well.
A good website should be attractive to the eye, professional looking, free of clutter and easy to navigate. There should be an even balance of text and images and your clients or potential clients should be able to understand what you offer without having to read too much. Your content should be simple, clear, short, sweet and to the point with options to click here for more in depth information. Your contact information should be readily available and you should offer the option for them to email you directly from the website on your contact us page. If you have a storefront, I recommend a Google map for clients to click on and find you with easy.
Your logo, graphics and images should be clear and never blurry; they should be colorful and well balanced. The overall look should be professional and top quality, not something you threw together on your spare time with a “Do It Yourself” web template designer. Your text should be large enough to read without having to be a strain on the eye. Dark text on light background is always easier to read than light text on dark background.
The Google map I suggested earlier will help you improve your search engine listings, make sure your website is linked on your Google location map. You can also title your pages with your important key words and location to help you come up higher in the searches. Getting on The Bridge Directory, BBV, The Florida Wellness Network or other website directories that link back to your website will also improve your searches. We also recommend you check out Quality Service Pros, CapeCoral.com, What’s Up SWFL? and SWFL Naturally – each of these offers a great opporutnity for putting your business out there. Social Media Marketing is another route you can take to improve your search engine optimization. Creating a Facebook, Linked in, Twitter or professional blog that links back to your website creates valid connections that the search engines look for to know you are real and improve your placement in their listings.
With today’s internet technology you have many options for web hosting and management. MGS Designz & More offers you the opportunity to manage and control your own website in an easy to use program that give you all the control at a very low monthly rate. You can have the website you want at a price you can afford and update your website at your convenience whenever you want!
