Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty Celebrates The Opening Of New Flagship Office At Windsor Business Park

NASSAU, The Bahamas (September 1, 2021) — George Damianos, Chief Executive Officer for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, and Lana Rademaker, Chief Brokerage Officer, are pleased to announce that the headquarters for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty, one of the pioneering companies in the downtown business district of Nassau in the 1940s, has relocated to its new home just west of the Lynden Pindling International Airport in Windsor Business Park.

The team of 20 expert brokers and agents operating out of Damianos Sotheby’s new flagship office is led by Chief Brokerage Officer and co-owner, Lana Rademaker.

“Our Shirley Street office served us well for over seven decades, and we are proud to have been a part of the downtown business corridor for so long,” said Rademaker. “But our sales and marketing team has grown so significantly over the past few years that we found we were outgrowing that space. Creating an inviting and collaborative environment that comfortably accommodates our team yet allows for future growth guided our design strategy. We are excited for our office to once again become a hub for business activity that draws in our clients and encourages them to engage with our sales agents.”

In addition to providing more space for team members to convene, the newly built-out 5,000-sq. ft. headquarters provides Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty agents with the opportunity to better serve their clients as well as the thriving communities around New Providence.

“When we set out to identify our new location, we did so very mindfully,” Rademaker said. “Our goal was not only to build a modern new head office, but to create a second home for our team members that would encourage gathering, professional development and the cultivation of relationships both internally and externally.  Investing in an environment that inspires career advancement and peak performance is what defines our corporate culture. This is the legacy upon which this company was built, and it’s what sets us apart from our competitors.”

The Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty team of sales associates prides itself on setting the standard of excellence through innovative marketing, personalized service and local expertise.  Founded in 1945, the company remains steadfast in upholding its core values of integrity,  transparency and the curation of long-term relationships based on a high standard of ethics.

A Successful Virtual Sale | Strategy & Solutions

Challenge #1 | Breathe New Life Into Previously Listed Home

Because Comfortably Numb had been on the market for about four years before being listed with The Ansell Group, it was imperative that Chris and Vanessa make it their first goal to present the home in a fresh light.  Over the course of several days, The Ansell Group set about staging every room of the home, creating an all-new look and feel, and providing an updated vision of the home’s potential. 

Challenge #2 | Sell Home Virtually During COVID-19

Listed for sale by The Ansell Group in January and placed under contract in September, the bulk of the marketing for Comfortably Numb took place during lockdown mandates. Due to travel restrictions, The Ansell Group created a 3D property tour so that buyers could virtually tour the property from the comfort of their homes.

Challenge #3 | Encourage Buyer To View The Home As Their Own

Initially, the new owner of Comfortably Numb liked the home but didn’t love it. She couldn’t quite visualize how she could transform the current space into the space she dreamed of. To help her get the full scope of the home’s potential, The Ansell Group created floor plans and called upon the Lyford Cay Sotheby’s International Realty network of architects and builders to solicit advice on how the space could be better used. 

Conclusion | Creativity + Technology + Brand Network = Success

Despite the obstacles that arose during the marketing of Comfortably Numb, The Ansell Group capitalized on creative thinking, innovative technology, and their vast network of industry professionals to achieve a successful sale for their client, and create a seamless buying experience for their buyer. The home’s new owner is now transforming Comfortably Numb into the home of their dreams.
