Seasoned Realtors, Garrett Wayne and James Williams, each has had a 25-year career in real estate sales and property management in the Washington, D.C. area and in South Florida. “Our combined experience plus our association with an internationally famous company like Coldwell Banker means we can give our clients maximum exposure nationally and internationally,” claims James Paul Williams, licensed Realtor and broker associate.
The other half of this team is Garrett Wayne who is a licensed Realtor and also licensed in condominium management with a national designation.
Operating out of the main Coldwell Banker office at 909 E. Las Olas Blvd., the team can offer a client first rate service. Garrett says, “One of us is always available to answer a client’s needs.” He adds, “This is an ideal time to sell property because interest rates are so attractive, it’s hard to resist becoming a property owner. And inventory is low which means sellers have a wide open opportunity to sell. Prices are beginning to go up, making the market attractive. The season is about to begin. The sun lovers are coming and many will want a property in South Florida. We have buyers looking right now. Sellers should take advantage of this opportunity while it lasts.”
“On the other side of the coin,” James adds, “we encourage people wanting to buy to act now because prices are moving up. It’s foolish to wait too long. We advise all of our clients to get pre-qualified so that they can act fast and not lose their dream home when they see it. We are happy to guide them through the process.”
Garrett says, “We have clients who are ready to buy, but not able to occupy yet. For them and all of our clients we offer a complete residential property management service for condominiums, coops, rentals, duplexes and single and multi unit properties. This service is ideal for investors, part time residents or anyone seeking professional management. At Coldwell Banker we realize that you don’t need the additional hassles of trying to rent your own property, manage appliance repairs, check prospective tenant’s credit history or handle three a.m. emergencies. We offer all of these services for a reasonable price.”
Asked how business is these days, James says, “After a long period of an unstable economy, the phones are ringing again. All indications are for a positive recovery in the housing market. Because Coldwell is an international company, we have many foreign investors showing active interest in our market.”
Garrett reminds readers, that their team offers a free home value and market analysis. “Most sellers are unsure of the true values of their properties. Our analysis is not a guessing game, because there is so much information readily available. We do a complete review of Broward Tax Records plus a comprehensive study of comparable properties that are listed and have sold in the surrounding areas of the buyers/sellers property. We come up with a realistic selling price.”
Here’s what a few clients have to say about the Garrett James team
Ian Norris says, “ Garrettt was able to bridge the gap between us and the seller and bring the entire transaction to a favorable resolution. We now own a parcel of land in Fort Lauderdale where we will be building our new corporate headquarters.”
The Pelican spoke with Kenan Packman in New York who is a property management client of Garrett’s. Packman said, “ We love our Florida second home and try to visit often. However, we are so far away we are happy to have a professional like Garrett handling a lot of things in our absence. He makes sure our pool and yard maintenance is done correctly, handles the security systems, checks the property after friends have used it for visits, and supervises occasional upgrades. It’s reassuring to know your second home is being well cared for.”
