Vision

May 26th, 2017

Vision…

When I first heard that Jeff wanted to rebrand Jeff Realty to ECHO Fine Properties my first response was, “Why would he want to do that!” Jeff had built a brand that was omnipresent in the Northern Palm Beaches that was iron clad. We were the top producing team at Illustrated Properties for the last 5 years! Jeff’s name was known everywhere. I was a beneficiary of the Lichtenstein team working Jupiter and Juno Beach Oceanfront Condos, and now carry the same values and gravitas.

Some wise person once said, “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it.” So, I wasn’t sure this was such a good idea.

We tossed around a few ideas working late in the office (name, logo and vibe). I saw some drafts and images as well as tag lines, “The Next Wave in Real Estate.” I still thought it might not be a good idea. And then Jeff sent a video of him and his family on a whale watching trip and a sudden encounter with a pod of dolphins.

For him it clicked. This encounter was the catalyst for his new vision… And then I got it. It was no longer only Jeff and Cary. Now it was 40 agents and staff helping and supporting each other, working together like a pod of dolphins.

He pushes the envelope when it comes to trying new things. When I came on board we had one agent doing intermittent Facebook posts. With my background in social media marketing I pushed Jeff to venture more deeply into social media marketing and PR. I said I could do it, but he wanted me selling homes. Now we have 2 dedicated social media PR members. There are no teams doing the amount of digital marketing we are. Simply put, we are maximizing the tools in the 21st Century Tool Box.

Back to the rebranding… So after I got over the hump and got on the Echo Fine Properties train, I began to see the fruits of this BIG decision. The logo is clean and speaks to South Florida. The photos and videos will be a huge step ahead. The new printed material is bold and striking. And the new mobile video marketing devices will be a game changer. Look out for them on your doorstep before we list your home.

If you want to sell or see condos or coastal homes in Jupiter or Juno Beach oceanfront give me a ring or email me. (561) 891-9262 or Andrew@EchoFineProperties.com

Eduardo’s Spotlight on Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens

May 26th, 2017

Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens

El Cid is an area known for its historic houses and its rich cultural surroundings. This remarkable enclave is surrounded by many museums, concert halls, art galleries and a stones throw away from the shopping streets of Palm Beach.

Today we focus the beautiful Artistic Ann Norton Sculpture Gardens. The beautiful house and gardens were built in the 1920s and later became the residence of Ralph Norton. Norton married Ann Weaver after the passing of his first wife. Ann was a sculpture instructor at the Norton Gallery and School of Art. Ann began her most prolific work to date, as the advantages of being Ralph’s wife provided the necessary funds and time to dedicate to her work. After and because of Ralph’s death, Ann began her “life’s work” as we know it, the nine monumental sculptures.

The museum recently hosted ‘Rising’ by Sophie Ryder, a world-renown British Sculpture who’s work has been inspired by Picasso, Goya and Henry Moore. Ryder famously developed the Lady Hare as a counterpart to Ancient Greek mythology’s Minotaur (often used by Picasso). The sculptures conflate the readymade and the monumental, reflecting and affirming views and their environments. 

Another exhibition currently on display at the museum is The Lost Bird Project by Todd McGrain. It focuses on extinct birds of the Americas, and it is dramatically presented in the main lawn of the Gardens.

The Local Benefits with Baer’s Furniture

May 25th, 2017

 

The Local Benefits with Baer’s Furniture

Recently I met with Pamela Grantham at my client’s property of her Juno Beach oceanfront condo. Pamela, an experienced Design Consultant with Baer’s Furniture has worked on many projects in her years with Baer’s. Baer’s offers 73 years in the furniture business and 16 stores in South Florida.

Pamela’s clients and Baer’s take comfort with the many benefits that Baer’s offer.  With over 500 manufacturers for furniture choices, they offer “turn-key” service to clients in Palm Beach County. Not only do they offer choices for indoor and outdoor furniture and also custom pieces, they offer choices for window treatments, painting, and all types of flooring.

Most furniture stores charge holding fees, but not with Baer’s.  Their three large warehouses allow for a No Holding Fee for clients.

The design services are free of any design fees or charges.  Storyboards are worked on for color coordinating fabric and painting. Floor plan layouts are drawn and fabric samples can be sent back and forth for clients that are having worked done while living out of state.  Design Consultants like Pamela oversee and coordinate vendors, schedule furniture deliveries and installations.

Pamela talked about how she took pictures for a client once a week until the project was complete for her clients “peace of mind.” Her clients’ home is ready when they are!

Baer’s has 14 active family members in the business and they are 4th generation Baer’s, a local family dedicated to clients. What a benefit their solid reputation offers!

Toby’s Spotlight on Louie Bossi’s Ristorante

May 24th, 2017

Toby’s Spotlight on Louie Bossi’s Ristorante

Earlier this month, Louie Bossi’s Ristorante Bar and Pizzeria opened in downtown Boca Raton. The restaurant is located on the corner of Federal Highway and Palmetto Park Road in the Hyatt Place Hotel. Just 15 minutes down the road from Boca Pointe. Indoor and outdoor seating is available. Guests that choose to sit indoors enjoy the warm atmosphere that features leather booths, copper tables, and antique lighting and accessories. If one prefers sitting outside on the patio, they can enjoy the fire pit and outdoor bar.

The food at Louie Bossi will not disappoint. Their pizzas are made in a wood burning pizza oven and their pastas are made from scratch. The restaurant also has an in house bakery. All pastries, gelato, breads, and cookies are homemade daily. They also offer locally brewed beers and house made cocktails on tap.

For a delicious meal with a great atmosphere, try Louie Bossi’s Ristorante Bar and Pizzeria.

Thank You,
