  • Protecting Your Home from Grill Fires

    by Watson Realty | Jun 04, 2015

    Did you know three out of five households own a gas grill? That may translate to a lot of tasty meals, but it also explains why there’s an average of 8,800 home fires each year related to grilling, says the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA). But gas grills are not solely to blame–all types of grills pose risks for fires.

    The NFPA advises backyard chefs be diligent during cookouts. Keep in mind most grilling fires begin on a courtyard, terrace, patio, exterior balcony or open porch. Protect these areas by:

    - Checking for damage before using the grill for the first time each year;

    - Using propane and charcoal BBQ grills outdoors only;

    - Placing the grill well away from the home, deck railing and out from under eaves and overhanging branches;

    - Keeping children and pets at least three feet away from the grill area;

    - Keeping your grill clean by removing grease or fat buildup from the grates and in the trays below;

    - Never leaving your grill unattended.

  • All of the Signs Point to Watson Realty Corp

    by Watson Realty | Jun 01, 2015

    It's no secret- running a business is hard, starting from scratch to building an empire there's no telling what you may run into along the way. William A. Watson Jr., the founder and chairman of Watson Realty Corp., may have started his company 50 years ago, but staying one step ahead of the industry for his customers has always been his main priority.

    From the day Watson Realty Corp. opened their doors in 1965 to half a century later, Mr. Watson recognized one aspect that would set him apart and that was marketing. As many companies expand and often steer away from their roots, Watson Realty Corp. has remained committed to their original philosophy while continuously innovating itself. Mr. Watson has gone to great lengths to provide his associates with comprehensive training, up-to-date technology and the dedication to help them succeed.

    "When we first started out, someone told us we had to trim our marketing budget, that we were headed for broke," said Watson, "It's true that you have to have a lot of business to do a lot of marketing. But it's also true that you have to do a lot of marketing to get a lot of business. We chose the latter."

    Today, Watson Realty Corp. has an extensive portfolio of resources to market each house to its individual needs. With over 1,300 sales associates, the leadership team has been continuously revamping the amount of marketing materials every sales agent has access to. From the minute you walk into a home to the way you remember it, Watson makes a concerted effort to make an impact.

    "It's critical to identify the target market, and reach them in a way that resonates with the buyer. Marketing materials and tone must convey the same sense of luxury and elegance you'll find in the home," said Jon Singleton, Watson Realty Corp. REALTOR® of the Avondale-Ortega office.

    Gorgeous imagery, quality print materials and interactive digital assets are among the extensive library of visual resources available to every person that walks in the door at any of Watson’s offices, located throughout North and Central Florida. Every sales associate is prepared with top quality promotional products to make listing and selling a property that much easier. Adding to this, digital signs and touchscreen listings outside some offices, commitment to digital marketing and their partnership with Leading Real Estate Companies of the World (LeadingRE®), a global network, there are no aspects of marketing that Watson doesn't take seriously.

    With over 90 percent of home buyers searching online during their home buying process in 2014 according to The National Association of REALTORS®, it is no surprise that digital exposure has become a necessity to real estate agents. Watson has made a concerted effort to embrace the value of exposure and take full advantage of every opportunity, exposing each home to the top real estate websites and search engines available which can lead to a faster sell and higher closing price. In addition, Watson is able to bring the digital marketing of each home to an international eye, through their strategic partnership with LeadingRE's powerful network, which extends to 50 countries across six continents.

    Watson Realty Corp. has been known for their one-of-a-kind service and commitment to building relationships with each customer they serve, but they have taken this a step further by building relationships with high-end printing companies that provide quality pieces for any Watson listing. The organizations Watson has chosen to partner with offer a wide-range of products to fit each home’s unique needs. With Watson’s new luxury marketing materials, many associates have had great success selling homes at all price points in a luxurious and professional way.

    One of the biggest issues today, as agents flood back into the real estate market, is going up against companies that over promise and under deliver. As the top residential real estate brokerage firm in Florida, Watson’s presence in the market and leverage in the community sets them apart as a leader in the industry and a force to be reckoned with.
