Thank you for keeping me informed. I have had great success with sales in and around Panama City. I use the information you send me to inform my investors in other states as to our progress on projects like Pier Park. We have a great market. I am working seven days and week and since Christmas business has exceeded past years. People do not realize when they
hear all the negative comments, that Panama City and surrounding areas have a very positive market that has held it’s own in spite of the foreclosures and short sales. There is a wide range of comps out there, but other than distress sales, our properties here have held their value. My cell bill has grown from 4000 minutes to 6000 minutes a month so I do not share the negative views the news media and some of the other realtors have. Thanks for the opportunity!
