Anna Maria Island is so beautiful today. Perfect weather, sun is shining, and the weekend is almost here. I wanted to make sure that I shared with you our October Newsletter so that you know what is going on at Duncan Real Estate! Click here to view the newsletter. If you see a vacation rental or have interest in one of our featured listings, please give the team a call. Anna Maria Island is the place to be.
Have a fantastic weekend!
Sorry it has taken me a few days to be in touch. Myself and the vacation rental team have been busy cleaning up after Tropical Storm Colin. Thankfully, our office on Pine Ave and over 90 vacation rentals weathered the storm with very few issues. I was very nervous driving on some of the roads out here as they get flooded quickly, but the MINI Cooper did just fine. Anna Maria Island has survived many of name storms and Colin is just another example of how “strong” this island is. The maintenance staff has walked all of our vacation rental properties and cleaned up all of the yards over the last week……wow, they are pooped! Needless to say, we take care of our properties!
Here is to no more storms this season…all of my toes and fingers are crossed! Hope to see you over the 4th of July!
As I am going over my spreadsheet of DRE listings this morning, it came to me that we have many listings all over Manatee County! Our office is located on Anna Maria Island, but our 11 experienced real estate agents are happy to help you list your home anywhere in the Manatee/Sarasota area. Team Duncan specializes in all phases of buying, selling, and renting on Anna Maria Island and the surrounding areas in Manatee County. We maintain an exclusive selection of homes and condos for sale, plus a diverse selection of rental properties “in town” or just off the beach! We are a boutique agency that does business the way it is meant to be – friendly, hands-on, and with your best interests in mind! A member of Team Duncan would love to help you sell or purchase your next home ANYWHERE in Manatee County!
My intern and I had the pleasure of attending a Manatee Chamber of Commerce Networking Event on Tuesday, July 14th! What a great event! We had such a wonderful time meeting new people, marketing Duncan Real Estate, and gathering new business leads. Why wouldn’t you be a member of your local chamber and take advantage of the many benefits it offers to members.
Before the event, my intern and I made a few “give away” prizes to be given out at the event. During a networking event, everyone puts his/her business card when they arrive, and towards the end of the event, the Chamber does a drawing for different prizes. This is such a simple and easy way to market your business. The Chamber always thanks each business for the donations and then the winner gets your prize and business information right then and there! As the saying goes “you get what you give”! The grand prize was a 39″ TV and I was the lucky winner of this fabulous TV! How fun is that!
Thank you to Peace River Electric for hosting such a lovely chamber event and especially for the TV that I won! I will for sure continue to attend the chamber events and bring Duncan Real Estate door prizes! Here is to supporting local businesses and doing business with one another!
Team Duncan is very excited to have Vanessa interning with us this summer. She is in her final semester of college and comes with so much knowledge in marketing and social media. She is here to learn about marketing in the real estate industry, but I have a feeling we are going to learn so much from her too! She is only on day 4 and has already done so much. Duncan Real Estate has a presence on Facebook and Twitter and now, we have a presence on Instagram! If you have not liked, followed, or retweeted a post, please do so! Thank you Vanessa for all of your wonderful help. It is going to be a fabulous summer!
Summer is right around the corner and Team Duncan wanted to get the word out that we have sizzling summer specials on our vacation rentals. Some vacation rental properties are 10-15% of the weekly rental rate and some that are $150 off the price! Can’t get much better than that!
We tend to rent from Saturday to Saturday, but in the summer some rental properties are available during the mid-week and for 3 nights! As you are planning your summer vacation with your family, friends from college, or a romantic get away with your honey, think Duncan Real Estate! We will take care of all of your vacation needs and even offer an errand service that will fill your fridge before you get here!
There are a few ways to “check out” available rentals….. the website, www.teamduncan.com, VRBO, call our office at 941-779-0304 and talk to a rental agent, and/or stop by our boutique office on Pine Ave. to get personal service! We look forward to meeting you and calling you friend!
