Premier Sotheby’s International Realty’s FRANK PEZZUTI shared with me the questions he gets most from potential clients.
1. How is the real estate market in Naples this season? What is trending?
Great properties are selling quickly. Beachfront properties are always in demand, even if they need a little “face lift”. Many of my clients are buying properties on the beach and doing those renovations to make them showplaces. Old Florida style homes like the ones being built near 5th Ave. are popular. They have the look of cottages from years ago, but with all of the convenience of new construction.
2. How are you different from other realtors in Naples?
I bring a lot of experience and common sense to the table. I like to search out the perfect property for each client. Also I have all of the contact people to guide our transaction through to a smooth closing. I have great relationships with title companies, closing agents, inspectors, lenders, handymen, etc. Nothing beats hard work! I have a long list of satisfied clients as a result.
3. Does Sotheby’s only deal with million dollar buyers & sellers?
Ha! Definitely not. I take great pride in servicing my clients at all price points because to my client this is probably a dream retirement or vacation home. I have both buyers and sellers from $300k to multiple millions and I offer each of them all of the marketing power and research tools that I have available.
4. Is Sotheby’s more expensive than other real estate agencies?
No, we’re not. I think that because of Sotheby’s high-end auction house people think we charge more. We don’t. Also, the seller pays the commission to the listing realtor at closing who then pays a portion of that commission (typically half) to the other realtor who brings the buyer. So if you’re a buyer, it would be unusual for you to pay your realtor.
