We are pleased to announce that Cozumel Living is being featured in the January 7th, 2009 NEW YORK TIMES online! Be sure to read the upcoming article entitled

"ON THE MARKET IN COZUMEL" By Virginia Claire Maguire

She has chosen to highlight Cozumel Living and our listing, Casa Cara al Sol.

YOU CAN’T BUY this type of promotion.  This should help to bring buyers to the island, and underscore the fact with all past, present, and future clients that Cozumel Living leads the way in the Cozumel marketplace.

-----------------------------------

The challenges of 2008 have inspired us to make some important changes at Cozumel Living. We have cultivated some exciting new tools for the promotion of properties for our sellers, and made some difficult managerial decisions to keep Cozumel Living the top choice for both buyers and sellers. We represent over 1/2 of the entire listings on the island, with more properties joining our listings every week! We’ve streamlined and updated our staff, and we are placing our emphasis firmly back on excellent customer service for our sellers and prospective buyers. When we meet to talk with you about listing your property, we are able to offer more valuable tools, pricing expertise, wider web based syndication, and most important,  a more engaging relationship to facilitate the selling process. For example:

1) We are pledging to issue new monthly activity reports to every listing owner giving them the activity on their property and possible suggestions to help advance their sale.

2) We will have at least one big open house per month inviting not only all fellow realtors, but friends and clients to help spread the word about the property. This is not only enjoyable, but gives the entire community a chance to come together to help match a seller, a neighbor, an acquaintance, or a friend with the right buyer.

3) As proud members of A.M.P.I. (www.ampicozumel.com) we enjoy the full benefits of the Multi-Listing Service in Cozumel. This professional organization provides many valuable resources for Cozumel Living agents in terms of listing visibility, organization, and professional ethics and standards of conduct so crucial in today’s competitive environment.

4) If you have not visited Cozumel Living lately, we invite you to stop by. We not only have select properties featured in the front window, but we also have a rotating digital photo frame of our homes, and some fun free promotional items to give away!
