3 Days Left! Join Us in the Fight Against Hunger…

In New Jersey alone there are over 1 million people, including 1 in six children

that are food insecure.

As proud residents of the state of New Jersey, we feel 1 person who is food insecure is too many…. Please, join Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty in the fight against hunger by donating non-perishable food items at any of the firm’s 13 offices throughout Northern, New Jersey by September 30th, 2016.

This is the fourth year the firm has partnered with Move For Hunger, a national non-profit organization. “It is an honor to serve our community.” says Charles Oppler, COO and Owner of Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, “When the community is in need, it is important that people who can help, do. This event is a company favorite for everyone involved and we will contribute as much as we can.”

At the end of the drive, the food will be picked-up and delivered by Ridgewood Moving Service to the Center for Food Action in Ridgewood. All Seasons Movers, Inc. and Main Street Movers will pick-up and deliver donations to the Community Food Bank of New Jersey in Hillside.

Donations are accepted by anyone who would like to contribute.

Sotheby’s International Realty® Brand to Target China’s Wealthy with New Juwai.com Alliance

Juwai and Sotheby's Int'l Realty

Sotheby’s International Realty has announced an alliance with Juwai.com that enables the luxury real estate brand to generate Chinese buyer interest on one of the world’s most prominent real estate websites with over two million monthly visitors. As a truly international brand, Sotheby’s International Realty now has the most global representation on Juwai.com, displaying luxury listings from 65 countries and territories.

China is already the second-largest source of visits to sothebysrealty.com, only after the United States, and accounts for one out of every 10 visitors.

Chinese investors favor real estate as an asset class. Chinese purchasers acquired at least US$350 billion of U.S. real estate between 2010 and 2015. 69 percent of Chinese purchase on an all-cash basis. Between 2009 and 2015, Chinese buyers went from accounting for 10 percent to 28 percent of all foreign residential real estate acquisitions in the U.S. In the same period, its annual investment level increased more than nine-fold.

Looking forward, Chinese buyers are expected to continue their international real estate purchasing spree. The best estimate is that they will spend at least US$218 billion on existing U.S. real estate between 2016 and 2020 – with investments in the rest of the world on a similar scale.

 

The Sotheby’s International Realty brand alliance with Juwai.com includes the following components:

  • Listing display: Sotheby’s International Realty property listings will appear on Juwai.com and in its real estate search results.
  • First responders: Juwai.com’s Chinese-language team is located in mainland China so they can respond to consumer inquiries in real time, translate the inquiries into English and forward them to the Sotheby’s International Realty sales associate who has the listing.
  • Brand page: A Sotheby’s International Realty brand overview page carries information about the brand, a contact form and the network’s listings – all in one place.
  • Banner advertising: Sotheby’s International Realty banner ads will run on the Juwai.com homepage, promoting the company’s new brand page and listings to Juwai.com’s audience.

 

“We are constantly looking for opportunities to expand globally by adding new distribution opportunities that showcase properties to affluent consumers in key growth markets. The alliance with Juwai.com achieves that by giving us better access to a market that is already one of our most important, and which promises great future growth.”  says, Wendy Purvey, Chief Marketing Officer of Sotheby’s International Realty Affiliates LLC. “One of Juwai.com’s key advantages is that it is hosted on both sides of China’s internet firewall, so its listings are visible online both within China and outside of China.”

“We are excited to offer this incredible opportunity to our home-seller clients by adding even more range and reach to our property exposure strategy in collaboration with Sotheby’s International Realty and juwai.com” says, Charles Oppler, COO and Owner of Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International Realty.
