Hello World! Welcome to Our Southwest Florida Blog

Posted by Benjamin Dona on Thursday, April 3rd, 2008 at 9:32am.

Welcome to Gulf Coast Associates, Realtors new Southwest Florida Real Estate Blog. We hope to provide you with some valuable insights into both the real estate and mortgage markets throughout Florida and beyond. Up until now, we did all of our blogging over at Real Estate Webmasters. Our Gulf Coast Associates Blog at REW has been a great success - we've had over 100,000 page views over the past few months.

At this time in our company's growth cycle we'd like to expand our web presence by participating in another arena. This is a place where we can share the latest information for our industries with you and open dialogues for education and advice. Having this new blog as part of our own website will give us both that opportunity. So, please feel free to drop by from time to time. We will do our best to provide you with a wealth of information on everything we can relative to living in Southwest Florida. And, please don't hesitate to tell us what you might like to know about this wonderful area we call paradise. We'll make every effort we can to provide you with information you can use to your benefit.

Hey Benjamin, I love the color scheme you did on your real estate website and now this blog. I know talking with you once that you were a little unsure about it at first, but the more I have looked at it the more I like it. It stands out nicely from other real estate websites and I think it really compliments and flows great with the Florida lifestyle.

Hey Dennis,

Thanks for the nice compliments!

I did have my doubts at first, but after the first few months of reading all the wonderful responses we get from our clients, I now know that Terry made the right decision in pushing for the sites design. In fact, I'm currently waiting for REW to finish up the new wide version I had them do at the same time we upgraded to the new CMS. The site has become even better looking with the updating we've done for the new wide version and I can't wait for it to be able to go live.
