Bonaventure Resort & Spa New Ownership

Previously Known as The Hyatt Regency Bonaventure

Bonaventure

Last week our office was invited to a reception to preview the renovations taking place at the Bonaventure Resort & Spa. Even though we live near by and have heard about some changes taking place there, we haven’t paid much attention until the event. The party was fun with great music, good food, complimentary massages and hand treatments and even with sirens at the pool.

Probably this place is one of the best kept secrets in Weston,  and we tend to forget to put it in our list of places to go for locals, and it’s a shame … the Restaurants are great and the Bar is an excellent quiet place to meet. The pool area makes you feel someplace else… The new Spa Alaya replaced the former Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa with more affordable prices, offering any service you can imagine, from manicure to Spa Days!

The conference area is going through a whole makeover with a multimillion dollar investment to the meet the International Association of Conference Centers standards.

What Should You Expect From Your Real Estate Agent?

Screen shot 2013-03-07 at 12.39.43 PM

Being an EXPERT ADVISER!

I was reading an article from KCM BLOG-Steve Harney about Real Estate New’s Market Reality and I found very interesting that that’s the way we have always seen our business. We as agents, more than provide readily available information, have to provide you with interpretation of what that information means. While many agents were scaring their Seller’s that prices would be going down we were posting stats showing the trend that actually became our Market Reality. Of course we have to look at closed sales and those would be the comparable sales appraisers will look at; but when we lack inventory we know that Seller’s expectations are higher that past sales and prices will tend to increase.

We are very skeptical of nationwide data provided by the media, since every sub-market behaves differently. As we have mentioned before, Weston was one of the lasts markets to feel the pain “when the music stopped” as a fellow realtor refers to, and one of the firsts to start the recovery.

” Your role as a real estate professional is similar to the role of the doctor and lawyer. You can’t give buyers or sellers perfect advice because you don’t know what’s going to happen—you can’t know the future. However, you can give excellent advice based on the information and situation at hand. You can guide them through the process and help them make the necessary changes along the way. and that’s exactly what your clients want…and deserve

” You shouldn’t be trying to convince someone to do something (that’s what salespeople do); instead, you should be helping your clients discover what their options are, explaining the pros and cons of each of those options, and then letting them make the decision that is best for them and their families. That’s what a trusted advisor, with the heart of a teacher does.

Working with agent that knows your market and have the experience to provide expert advice all the way through the transaction, will make your life much easier.

Weston Single Family Homes Sold During October 2012

Weston’s Real Estate Market remains very active with very low inventories putting pressure on prices. We still experience a noticeable GAP between Active Listing Prices and Relevant Comparable Sales. Buyers look at Closed Sales and Sellers expect to sell based on Comparable Active Listed Prices. Appraisals are always a surprise since you can find even a 20% difference in prices of similar closed homesBY TYPE
