We call ourselves Team Awesome because we are.
With over 50 years in Real Estate, we know the industry. More importantly, we know Boca Raton and South Florida. Members of our team grew up here, attended school here (Let’s go Spanish River Sharks!) and graduated from Florida Atlantic University (Go Owls!) right here in Boca Raton.
Team Awesome is comprised of members who were carefully chosen to be part of this prestigious family. Each of us has a specialty, a dynamic skill-set and unique talent to complement the team. Each member is an important member of his or her community, neighborhood, HOA, temple, church, PTA, gym, book club, dad’s Club… The list goes on.
Each member of our team leads an actively philanthropic life. We are involved in City Council and planning and zoning. Not only do we know everyone, but everyone knows us.
Why is that important to you? Because our network is extensive. As a seller, you want us to bring you a buyer. As a buyer, you want us to know the inventory. How could one Realtor do that?
Real Estate is not just a transaction. It’s not just knowing the area, or the market or construction or builders or the history or the future of the area. It’s not just match-making a family with a home. It’s not just negotiations or writing contracts. It’s not just marketing a property and finding buyers. It’s not just any one thing. It’s everything. That’s why we are a team.
