MLS By Owner Realty, Inc

2000 – Dec 2007

Location Orlando, Florida Area

I founded this company in March of 2000. Through my experience in Sales, Management and Real Estate, coupled with Internet and marketing training, I developed a unique and innovative system specializing in the then, booming, For Sale by Owner Market.

My unique program provided the (FSBO) For Sale By Owner market with the tools and exposure to sell there home on their own or through a buyers agent. We provided a sign, lock box, took all photos, gave them exposure in the Realtor MLS and all the top Real Estate Website.
If a Realtor sold there home they paid a 3% if they sold on there own they paid no commission, just our up front listing fee.

The bulk of my experience during this venture:
• I created all marketing and promotional material which included; magazines, newspaper, radio, billboards, brochures, flyers, postcards, contracts, etc.
• Built and maintained several websites to provide additional exposure.
• I implemented a recruiting program for Realtors
• Held seminars for the For Sale By Owner Market
• Handled all Human Resources responsibility.
• Handled all financials utilizing Quickbooks
• Provided a feedback survey to ALL customers to insure customer value and satisfaction.
I grew to service over 10 counties in the Central Florida area listing over 3000 homes.
Due to the down turn in the Real Estate Market I closed the company and pursued my passion for the Hospitality Industry.
