Name: Den­nis Ste­vick, of DND As­so­ci­ates Com­pany name: ONE Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Realty, Fort Laud­erdale Orig­i­nally from: Michi­gan; how­ever I have lived in New York, North Carolina, Ja­pan, Ok­i­nawa, Cal­i­for­nia, and of course Florida. Cur­rent home: Coral Ridge Coun­try Club of Fort Laud­erdale for the past 14 years Re­al­tor des­ig­na­tions: Vice-Pres­i­dent, Bro­ker

How long in real es­tate: 24 years What made you get into real es­tate? A de­sire to run my own busi­ness, while en­gag­ing the pub­lic to ful­fill their goal of find­ing the per­fect home. What sep­a­rates you from other Real­tors? A de­sire to make ev­ery trans­ac­tion, the best pos­si­ble ex­pe­ri­ence for ev­ery client. At DND As­so­ci­ates, our busi­ness is about de­vel­op­ing per­sonal re­la­tion­ships and re­fer­rals. I also have an ac­count­ing back­ground so I keep a num­bers per­spec­tive with all of our clients. Which neigh­bor­hoods/ ar­eas are your spe­cialty? Typ­i­cally from At­lantic Boule­vard to Har­bor Beach, along the In­tra­coastal and the beach. How­ever, our team works in many other com­mu­ni­ties and speaks mul­ti­ple lan­guages. De­scribe your work­ing style? Per­sonal, high at­ten­tion to de­tail and goal ori­ented. We are avail­able seven days a week. What ad­vice do you have for buy­ers? With the mar­ket changes in the last few years, we are def­i­nitely in a seller’s mar­ket. Over­all, in­ven­tory will con­tinue to di­min­ish for the near fu­ture with most re­cent Au­gust stats hold­ing a 3.6-month sup­ply. If you have de­cided to buy a home, now is the time. Call us at (954) 592-2277. What ad­vice do you have for sell­ers? If you have been wait­ing to re­lo­cate as the mar­ket had been slow, now is a good time to sell your home. Up­dated homes are sell­ing quickly and at great prices. The av­er­age sale price is up 22.2 per­cent in Au­gust year over year. Call us at (954) 592-2277. How does what you’ve learned about real es­tate help your clients? My ex­pe­ri­ence has pro­vided a great depth of knowl­edge about the lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional mar­ket. We are less emo­tional about the ac­tual pur­chase or sale and are able to point out the log­i­cal, busi­ness side of buy­ing or sell­ing a prop­erty. This will pro­vide a level and suc­cess­ful trans­ac­tion for both buyer and the seller. What’s the hottest list­ing you have right now? All of our cur­rent of­fer­ings are ex­cep­tional homes. Many are of­fered at great val­ues and may be found at www.dnd­flori­da­homes­bythe­sea. com and­sothe­bysre­alty. com . What pro­fes­sional ac­com­plish­ment makes you the most proud? My ap­point­ment to Vice Pres­i­dent, Bro­ker at ONE Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Realty. Are you in­volved in any char­i­ta­ble or­ga­ni­za­tions? Through ONE Sotheby’s In­ter­na­tional Realty we have re­la­tion­ships with Women in Dis­tress in Broward County and Lo­tus House in Dade County. DND As­so­ci­ates has work­ing re­la­tion­ships with PAWS and Fund­ing Arts Broward FAB! What’s one thing peo­ple would be sur­prised to know about you? As a child, I lived in Ja­pan.
