WE SELL MORE BECAUSE WE DO MORE!
Long and Foster Kent Island has once again recognized Jimmy White and Mary Elaine Casson of the Long and Foster Kent Island Office as their top producers in the Bay Area for 2016. Jimmy and Mary Elaine, known as The Jimmy White Team, settled more than $20 million worth of real estate in calendar 2016. When asked about the secret to his success in what everybody agrees is a difficult market, White answered, “It’s a mix of hard work, attention to detail and superior marketing with an emphasis on the Internet and social marketing techniques. We constantly examine everything we do to make sure our sellers and buyers receive the best service and information possible to make decisions. We are available by cell 24/7 to make sure we never miss an opportunity to make a sale.” As an example, White cited the main website, KentIslandToday.com. It is the best site for real estate searches in the greater Kent Island area. “People may not know to search for Grasonville or Queenstown or Stevensville, but everyone has heard of Kent Island,” he said. The site offers one click convenience in searches for waterfront homes, horse properties, active 55 communities and by neighborhoods. White also credited the quality of the marketing materials produced for his clients and his team, most especially Mary Elaine Casson. “I believe in the concept of doing what I do best and hiring the rest. Mary is among the finest Realtors I have ever met and we could not provide the quality of service we do without her knowledge and experience. We also bring in the best professionals in all the activities related to the sale of real estate (photography, financing, web presence management, and placements, etc.) to make sure everything is done right.” He added the local support of his broker, Long and Foster, is also critical. “Our Branch Manager Elinor Warring is a tremendous asset to our team. He noted that their sales portfolio is very diversified from first time homebuyers, to 55+ active adult communities, to the luxury water front market. He concluded, “Mary and I thank all of our buyers and sellers in 2016 for having the confidence in us to handle their real estate needs. We are happy to be number one for 2016 and we intend to do it again this year.”
