  • Nancy Shear visits Sea Glass Properties in St. Thomas

    by Watson Realty | Dec 05, 2013

    Oviedo, Fla., - November 25, 2013 – Nancy Shear, Vice President and Managing Broker of Watson Realty Corp.’s Oviedo office, recently visited fellow Leading Real Estate Companies of the World® (LeadingRE) member, Sea Glass Properties in the Virgin Islands.

    Shear visited the St. Thomas office situated in the lovely Yacht Grand Harbor nestled among high-end shops overlooking the harbor. Sea Glass Properties has two additional offices in St. Croix and St. John.

    “They have 19 agents in their St. Thomas office and the staff was professional,” Shear said. “The office had a very cosmopolitan feel with lots of glass and chrome. Sea Glass Properties is a really impressive company having dominated their market in a very short time.”

    Shear learned the Sea Glass Properties business model predominantly targets the international market, as local advertising and exposure is limited due to the island’s size and demographics. The office publishes a small magazine featuring their listings and utilizes their website as well to promote their affiliation with LeadingRE and RELO Direct® Inc.

    Shear gave everyone jar openers, marketing material on Watson Realty Corp., and has since become Facebook friends in order to maintain contact.

    In addition to trusted referrals, members of the network provide exceptional marketing advantages and knowledge to their buyers and sellers. Watson Realty Corp. is honored to be a founding member of LeadingRE and a three-time recipient of the network’s highest honor, the Diamond Award.

    Nancy Shear has more than 13 years of professional real estate experience and has held the positions of corporate property specialist, team manager and relocation director. Shear graduated from Georgia State University with a bachelor’s degree in marketing and management. A Certified Relocation Professional (CRP), and Graduate of the Realtor Institute (GRI), Shear enjoys sharing her professional knowledge by conducting first-time homebuyer seminars and delivering speeches on real estate and mortgage financing.

    For more information, Nancy Shear can be reached by phone at 407-608-2097 or via email at NShear@WatsonRealtyCorp.com
