Pensacola Business Radio – 03.30.16 Guests: Walter Pierce / Levin Rinke Realty


Walter Pierce / Levin Reinke Real Estate

Aside from buying and selling real estate, Walter enjoys many other activities. His wife and four children are his top priority and he spends a great deal of time with his family. He also takes time for sailing, tennis, water sports, and reading for enjoyment as well as education. He is an active member of First Church Pensacola and ICON, the Pensacola LEAD-ers, Pensacola North Rotary, Teaches Sunday school, serves on the NBCook SAC, and is a partner in education with a local school. He enjoyed spending time teaching JA, Serving NE Sertoma and Gulf Coast Crime Stoppers, as well as acting as Rotary Liason to the CHS Interact club, and facilitator and group leader for Outback America and Rotary International district 6940 RYLA.

It’s a 30-year commitment. Start the relationship off right. Whether it’ s fixed or adjustable, for 15 or 30 years, buying a home is most likely the single largest purchase of your life. A commitment like that shouldn’ t be taken lightly. You need someone who definitely knows where the relationship is going.Someone who’ s serious about real estate and can guide you through the complicated process of buying a home; Someone to ease your mind and explain every detail.

You know someone to talk to and more importantly, someone who will listen. I am committed to making sure that you are comfortable during the entire home buying experience, and that you are satisfied in the end.

Everyone knows that a good relationship takes work. So when it comes to buying a home, work with someone who will work with you.

Is your property easy to show?

When you list your property for sale, you should do your part to get the maximum number of showings by making it easy to show. More showings mean more offers, and more offers mean you are more likely to get a higher price, and sell quicker!

Typically, after a realtor has searched the MLS and found a few suitable homes to show his buyer, he or she will call the listing agents or listing offices to get showing instructions and to make appointments to see the properties. Having been in this position many times, I can tell you how frustrating it is to get the listing agents voicemail but not get a return call in a reasonable time. When that happens, we will usually cross that property off our list.

I always answer my phone and it follows me home, or to my car, or to my desk at the office. Agents or buyers interested in seeing my listings reach me easily and that helps increase the number of showings.

Some instructions state “Listing Agent Must Accompany.” When an agent is showing four or five properties, it is virtually impossible to accurately predict arrival time at a particular listing. And if he or she arrives early, or the listing agent arrives late, an awkward wait with clients results. Some unscrupulous listing agents use this technique as a device to deliberately limit showings by other agents to increase their odds of selling the property themselves, thereby doubling their share of the commission. A seller might think the listing agent is showing extra initiative by agreeing to accompany every showing. Don’t be fooled — This is a bad idea.

Showing instructions might also state “24-hour notice required” or “appointment required.” Either of these is also sure to lose some agents and their buyers.

The best way to make your property accessible to agents with potential buyers is with an electronic lockbox. There are some very successful buyers’ agents who will not show a house that’s not on a lockbox. Don’t have them skip your house!

Some sellers fear for the security of their home and may not realize the safety features incorporated in this system.

Heres how it works. The lockbox containing your house key is secured to your front door. Licensed agents, active members of the Realtors Association, have an electronic key that looks and works something like a TV Remote. If a key were to be lost, there are two safeguards preventing its use by an unauthorized person. First, it is password protected and its internal password is updated on a daily basis at the agents base station or “cradle.” Second, each time it is used, the agent must enter his own private pin number. The SUPRA electronic lockbox itself, is an electronic marvel. Before releasing its contents, it verifies the key has been updated that day, and that the user has entered his correct PIN. It also records the name, license number, company and date and time used, for each opening. This information is later transmitted to a mainframe computer and is available online anytime, to the agent who owns the lockbox. Cheaper combination lockboxes do not have any of these security features.

A lockbox on your door does not interfere in any way with your entering or leaving your house. You work your door locks the same way you always did.

So, sellers — Make your home easy to show. Pick Walter Pierce who answers his phone and who uses electronic lockboxes.

Pensacola Business Radio: Live Coverage of The I4GovCon Summit


The idea for creating the i4GovCon Summit came from the Thunderdome Initiatives that have been floating around our community for the past year.  Knowing that Orlando and the Space Coast also have tremendous resources for aerospace and defense, we wanted to expand across the state, so we chose the “i4” to mark the location of this inaugural event.  There are similar conferences in other parts of the state, including the ITen Wired Summit covering northwest Florida communities, the First Coast Defense Expo in Jacksonville, the Space Coast Tech Expo in Melbourne and of course all the larger conferences such as I/ITSEC and SOFIC.

Our aerospace and defense community is spread across the state and to some extent it’s overshadowed by beaches, theme parks, and real estate development.  The goal of i4GovCon is to bring small business leaders from this crucial industry and supply chain together. The I-4 corridor is one of the fastest growing areas of the state.  According to a report by Enterprise Florida and Career Source Florida, “Florida’s defense industry had a $79.8 billion economic impact in Florida in 2014.”  Forward Florida reports that the space program “generates more than $19.2 billion in annual revenue.”  Commercial applications and other technology initiatives provide even more growth potential.

Instead of another DC trip, join us at i4GovCon in Tampa on March 24.  Let’s make things happen here! A fast track to meeting other like-minded professionals, the i4GovCon summit is a smaller and more focused event for those who are committed to the federal marketplace.

Veterans are the heart of the aerospace and defense community. Whether on active duty, in the reserves, or transitioning to civilian careers they deserve our support. One aspect of the summit will be to bring together some of the resources that serve this community. Florida is pushing to be the top state for veterans, to accomplish that we have work together to create better connections and networking between our companies and the veterans. We can assist on their way to a future career in our community. For example setting up a veteran friendly program.

Veterans already have what we are looking for: Leadership, discipline, and decision making skills. Let’s use this event as an opportunity to improve the veterans workforce in our communities.
