Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty Offices Throughout The Bahamas Re-Open Monday, May 25

Open for Business. Starting Monday, May 25, the Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty team will be working from their offices throughout The Bahamas from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday through Friday.

NASSAU, The Bahamas (May 25, 2020) — Today’s re-opening of the Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty offices marks ten weeks since offices were closed due to COVID-19 quarantine mandates. In this span of time, staff members and agents have utilized their downtime for professional development, team building and to sharpen sales and marketing strategies.

“Our entire team has been working remotely non-stop, and in many ways, has been busier than ever,” said George Damianos, Chief Executive Officer for Damianos Sotheby’s International Realty. “Once the government announced we were going into quarantine indefinitely, we immediately pivoted and began working from our home offices, turning our focus to virtual and digital strategies and beefing up our marketing.”

In the past two months, the company’s leadership team met daily via Microsoft Teams to assess every aspect of business from accounting and marketing to administrative and operations. This laser-like focus on team development and sharpening of organizational standards and protocol saw immediate results.

Since March, the company’s sales and administrative teams have gathered on weekly calls to sharpen their professional skills via the Ninja Selling course; and, attended bi-weekly Sotheby’s International Realty® training webinars.

“One of the most significant differentiators as a real estate brand is this incredible network of Sotheby’s International Realty®  agents and marketing experts that we tapped into to gain invaluable insight into the best way forward post-COVID, and how to navigate the downturn of  business caused by the pandemic,” Damianos said.

Damianos added that critical details from these calls were then incorporated into compelling marketing and sales strategies in the form of email marketing campaigns, corporate communications, and a ramped-up social media presence.

From a back-office perspective, administration staff supported agents from home as they responded to international inquiries, prepared listing agreements, built brochures, fielded offers, and closed sales. The accounting department also worked remotely paying client and company invoices.

“I am utterly impressed with how we’ve come together as a team in this time of crisis,” Damianos said. “This quarantine has offered us the remarkable opportunity to connect more frequently and deeply as a team to exchange ideas and best practices. We are proud of the way our team has stepped up to support and encourage each other and build upon their already-impressive talents and skillsets.”
