RealEstateAuctions.com welcomes its newest Team Leader in the State of Florida, Realtor® Judith Mercurius Poten. Judy will cover northern Broward County on the state’s east coast.
‘”We’re excited to have Judy aboard,” said REA Southeast Regional Director Laura Mancinelli. “She joins our other leader in that county, Carmen Bernard, to complete our Broward team.”
As Team Leader, Judy will be responsible for recruiting and leading three Project Managers who will prospect, list and service properties for auction. Project Managers must be Florida-licensed Realtors® who specialize in auctions or at least have high interest in auctions and are willing to learn more via comprehnesive company training. RealEstateAuctions.com is planning a large auction event in Florida on Oct. 6, 2012, with details to be released soon.
Judy earned her real estate license in 2004 and is interested in auctions because of the openness and transparency they provide.
“I’ve showed (non-auction) houses that I’ve had to bid online on behalf of my clients, and you never know what other bids have been received,” Judy says. “The listing agent is the only person who has access to how many offers have been made. The trust is not there, and if clients could bid for themselves like in an auction setting, there would be more trust.”
Judy says that real estate sales are strong Broward County and Miami-Dade County, so strong in fact, “that as soon as a property comes on the market, and it is at a good price, within seconds there is an offer on it. And, within a couple of hours, there are often five to ten offers.” She attributes such a high level of interest to the fact that Florida is such a perpetually desirable place to own real estate.
“Everyone wants to get a part of Florida, it is sunny all year round,” Judy says with a smile. “There are a lot of international buyers who purchase in Florida, and that includes people from Europe, South America, the Caribbean and Canada. There is also a lot of interest from people in other states around the U.S.”
Judy likes the online business model of RealEstateAuctions.com. “The Internet has totally taken over and most people are doing everything online,” she says.
Judy owned a mortgage brokerage from 2002 to late 2010 and for 12 years now she has been a business technology education teacher in Miami-Dade County. She earned a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration and Marketing, a Master’s in Adult Education and is currently working on her dissertation to complete her Doctoral degree in Adult Educational/Vocational/Education Leadership. When not busy with real estate and teaching, Judy enjoys dancing, reading, traveling and spending time with her family and friends.
