  • Watson Realty Corp. Appoints David Mutters Vice President and Managing Broker of Port St. Lucie and Vero Beach Offices

    by Watson Realty | Sep 05, 2017

    Watson Realty Corp. is pleased to announce David Mutters joined the company as Vice President and Managing Broker of its new Port St. Lucie and Vero Beach offices.

     

    In his new position, Mutters will lead and oversee day-to-day operations for the Port St. Lucie and Vero Beach offices, including residential and commercial real estate sales, mortgage loan services, title services, agent recruiting and staff operations.

     

    Jeff Fagan, Regional Vice President of Watson Realty Corp., announced Mutters’ appointment last week. “David brings a wealth of experience and success in South East Florida,” said Fagan. “I am excited to have David join our leadership team and look forward to growing in our new market territory.”

     

    Mutters has over 35 years of residential and commercial real estate experience and is a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) and Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM). These prestigious designations are held by less than one percent of realtors in the nation. Mutters owned his own real estate brokerage in Cape Coral for many years, and later sold to a major national brand.

     

    Ed Forman, President of Watson Realty Corp., echoed Fagan’s sentiments on Mutters joining the company. “I’m very excited to have David Mutters join our leadership team,” said Forman. “David has a great successful history in the real estate business.”

     

    As a resident of Indian River County, Mutters knows the local market well. He moved to Florida in 1978 to begin his career in real estate, after selling his paging and mobile phone business, Advanced Radio Communications Inc. Prior to that, Mutters served in the U.S. Army as a Military Police Sergeant, and later went on to work in the marketing department for Ashland Oil.

     

    “I am excited about the opportunity to work for Watson Realty Corp., whose reputation and service is second to none,” said Mutters. “I’m so looking forward to many successful years applying my knowledge and experience to help grow Watson Realty Corp in South Florida”

  • Watson Realty Corp. Appoints Christine King as Vice President/Managing Broker of Hammock Office

    by Watson Realty | Aug 08, 2017

    Watson Realty Corp. is pleased to announce Christine King joined the organization as Vice President and Managing Broker of its new Hammock office.

     

    In her new position, King will lead and oversee day-to-day operations for the Hammock office, including residential and commercial real estate sales, mortgage loan services, title services, agent recruiting and staff operations. She will be working out of the Palm Coast office with Vice President/Managing Broker Ryan Ford until renovations are complete on the Hammock location in early September.

     

    Ed Forman, President of Watson Realty Corp., announced King’s appointment and expressed excitement about opening a second location in the Palm Coast area last week. “I’m extremely pleased to have an office in The Hammock. This will compliment our Palm Coast office,” said Forman. “This will help us to better serve all the residents of these fine communities.”

     

    King began her real estate career in New York in 1992. Throughout her twenty-five years in the industry, King has earned numerous designations and owned two of her own brokerages, Seven Oaks Realty, Inc. and Allan & King Real Estate Co., Inc. She merged the latter with Houlihan Lawrence in 2005, and served as a managing broker with them for over nine years.

     

    “I am excited that Christine has joined our Watson Leadership team,” said Ford. “I look forward to working with her and continuing growing our market share in Flagler County.”

     

    King has been a certified real estate instructor since 2000, and for the past two years she has acted as a managing broker for Weichert Realtors. After visiting the Palm Coast area for over twenty years, King decided to make the move to be closer to her family.

     

    “I am excited to join Watson Realty Corp. and am looking forward to opening our new Hammock office,” said King. “Combining my experience with Watson’s is a dynamic combination for the community.”

  • All Florida Realty Merges with Watson Realty Corp.

    by Watson Realty | Jul 17, 2017

    Watson Realty Corp. is pleased to announce the merger of All Florida Realty with Watson Realty Corp., effective July 14, 2017.

     

    Watson Realty Corp.’s Chairman of the Board, William A. Watson, Jr., stated, “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to merge All Florida Realty Property Management, Real Estate Sales and Real Estate School into the Watson Realty Corp. network of offices.”

     

    All Florida Realty was founded by David Bessette in 1972. Mr. Bessette recalls, “Many years ago when we were entering the field of real estate sales, property management and general business operations my wife, Pam, and I looked around to see who our competition was to determine how to set up our own business. Mr. Watson and Watson Realty became our model of what a successful real estate operation should look like. Our merger with Watson Realty Corp. will take us all to a new level and more importantly, we will remain viable in each of our market places and continue providing quality services to our customers, agents and employees.”

     

    Over the years Mr. Bessette has grown his company into a full-service real estate brokerage with a comprehensive and integrated suite of resources including property management, residential sales, real estate school, and commercial and personal insurance services.

     

    “We are excited to join the Watson Realty Corp. family as this merger will bring tremendous opportunities for all of us and the businesses we serve. The leadership of Watson Realty Corp. shares the same core values of professionalism, business ethics and level of customer service that we have embraced over the years. It has been an absolute pleasure working with the Watson team of professionals throughout this merger process”, said Kathy Pass.

     

    David Bessette, Owner and Broker of All Florida Realty as well as Kathy Pass, the company’s Chief Operating Officer, will both become members of Watson Realty Corp.’s management team.

     

    Mr. Watson went on to say, “We are very pleased to grow our footprint in Florida and are excited to offer additional Real Estate services in the Melbourne, Port St. Lucie, Vero Beach and Port Charlotte area, plus merge our two Daytona area Property Management Offices.

     

    With the merger, Watson Realty Corp. will also be acquiring Florida Insurance Concepts and Pinnacle Association Management as additional services to its existing Family of Services.

     

    Wendell Davis, Executive Vice President of Watson Realty Corp.’s Property Management Division echoes Mr. Watson’s sentiments, “We are excited to have David Bessette's All Florida Realty group and its family of services join with Watson Realty and its Family of Services. The expansion of Watson Realty's footprint southward down Florida's East Coast allows us to deliver our culture of Legendary Customer Service to more Florida residents.”

    In his new position, Cintrón will lead and oversee day-to-day operations for the Southside office, including residential real estate, mortgage loan services, agent recruiting and staff operations.

     

    Ed Forman, President of Watson Realty Corp., announced Cintrón’s promotion last week. “We are very pleased to welcome Eddie as the new manager of our Southside office,” said Forman. “Eddie has demonstrated great success since he joined Watson just two years ago. He has proven himself to be a hard worker and tremendous leader.”

     

    Cintrón launched his real estate career with Watson Realty Corp. at the Southside office two years ago, and has quickly progressed in the industry. Prior to that, he enjoyed a very accomplished sales and leadership career in the automotive industry. 

     

    "Watson Realty Corp’s company-wide commitment to Legendary Quality Service sets the company apart from other real estate firms, and that alone has made it a perfect home for me,” said Cintrón. “I am honored and excited to join the leadership team and take charge of the Southside office to help spread that commitment and take the office to new heights."

    REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents ranks over 12,600 residential real estate professionals solely based on their excellence in real estate sales during calendar year 2016. All production numbers are independently verified by a third-party in order to ensure accuracy and report integrity. “This group of highly successful real estate sales agents represents less than 1 percent of all real estate practitioners in the United States,” says Steve Murray, publisher of REAL Trends America’s Best Real Estate Agents and president of REAL Trends. 

    To qualify for inclusion, an individual agent must have closed at least 50 transaction sides or $20 million in sales volume in 2016. For real estate agent teams, the minimum is 75 transaction sides or $30 million in closed sales volume. The individuals ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 73 transaction sides and an average sales volume of almost $37 million. Teams ranked in America’s Best Real Estate Agents had an average of 144 sides and an average sales volume of almost $61 million.

    The average residential real estate agent in the United States closed 8.6 transaction in 2016 and had less than $1.3 million in sales,” said Murray. To say that Watson Realty Corp. is an exceptional real estate company is an understatement. To attain this level of sales is truly outstanding.” 

    “We are also pleased that two of the nation’s most prominent online real estate websites, Trulia® and Zillow®, have partnered with REAL Trends to bring a superior level of customer exposure of these sales agents’ performance,” Murray added. 

    “The achievements that this select group of associates earned for their success represents the service our brand offers to its customers everyday. We are proud of each associate for earning this well-deserved recognition,” said Ed Forman, president of Watson Realty Corp. “In addition to their impressive sales, their unparalleled ambition and customer support truly sets them apart in the real estate industry."

  • Watson Realty Corp. Ranked in Top 25 Companies Nationally by REAL Trends 500

    by Watson Realty | May 02, 2017

    Watson Realty Corp. has been ranked one of the top 25 companies in the U.S. based on transaction sides by the 2017 REAL Trends 500 Report, an independently verified compilation of the Nation's leading residential real estate companies.

     

    Watson Realty Corp. closed 16,188 transactions in 2016, landing the company at #23 in the country and #1 of all independently owned brokerages in Florida. Watson also ranked #40 in the nation and #3 for independently owned brokerages in Florida based on sales volume, with more than $3.2 billion in sales for 2016.

     

    “It’s a huge honor to achieve such a high national ranking and to be recognized as one of the largest independently owned real estate brokerages by transaction sides in Florida,” said Ed Forman, President, Watson Realty Corp., “This is a great testament to the hard work and dedication of our team members.”

     

    The REAL Trends 500 is an annual research report that identifies the country’s largest and most successful residential real estate firms as ranked by closed transaction sides and separately by closed sales volume. This report represents the most trusted standard of measuring the performance of the nation’s leading realty service firms.

  • Watson Realty Corp. Ranks Among Top 500 Real Estate Firms in RISMedia’s 2017 Power Broker Report

    by Watson Realty | May 01, 2017

    Watson Realty Corp., headquartered in Jacksonville, Fla., recently announced its inclusion in the Top 500 national ranking of real estate brokerage firms in RISMedia’s 29th Annual Power Broker Report.  Watson Realty Corp. reported 16,199 closed residential transactions in 2016, ranking the company #21 on the survey, and a total sales volume of $3,257,002,786, ranking the company #40.

    This year’s Power Broker Report is based on responses to RISMedia’s 2017 Power Broker Survey, distributed in early January. More than 1,400 real estate firms from across the country completed the Power Broker Survey, with the top 1,000 reporting a collective 3,648,075 closed residential transactions in 2016, accounting for more than $1.16 trillion in sales volume.

    Now in its 29th year, the Power Broker Report has long honored the incredible business feats of remarkable real estate leaders—and brokerage firms—who continue to shape our industry. Each April, RISMedia’s Real Estate magazine highlights the Top 500 Power Broker firms according to sales volume and transactions.

    “It is deeply gratifying for Watson Realty Corp. to be recognized as one of the top firms in the entire nation,” said Ed Forman, President, Watson realty Corp. “Our sales associates work passionately to please our customers and produce outstanding results. This type of recognition speaks to all their efforts.”

    RISMedia President & CEO John Featherston congratulated Watson Realty Corp. for their prestigious ranking in this year’s Power Broker Report. “Consumers today are utilizing the professional skills of Realtors more than ever before and the firms represented in RISMedia’s Power Broker Report are the nation’s most elite brokerage firms serving literally millions of these home buying and selling consumers with their real estate needs.” Featherston said. “2016 was a growth year for many real estate firms across the country as the Power Brokers continued to infuse the latest in technological tools and professional skills to help their neighbors achieve their personal homeownership goals and objectives, despite continued inventory shortage in many areas. Today’s homebuyers and sellers need a trusted, credible real estate professional to help them understand the opportunities in today’s market and how to overcome the obstacles that may be holding them back. Being ranked in RISMedia’s Power Broker Report validates your firm’s reputation as a trusted resource for today’s real estate consumers.”

     

    RISMedia’s Annual Power Broker Report ranks firms by closed transactions and sales volume for the prior year. The Top 500 rankings appear in the April issue of Real Estate magazine and online at rismedia.com. The complete ranking of the Top 1,000 firms, according to both sales volume and transactions, will be available later this spring at rismedia.com.

     

    RISMedia’s 29h Annual Power Broker Report & Survey is based on results garnered from a survey distributed via email and available online at rismedia.com. The survey ranks residential real estate brokerage firms according to closed residential transaction numbers and closed residential sales volume for the year 2016. All sales and transaction data is submitted directly by brokerage firms and verified by the firm’s financial executives, outside accounting firms and/or corporate franchise headquarters.
