Donald Trump may be busy with his presidential run but his realty firm is busy doing something else. It is currently expanding into Southwest Florida. This comes as Naples, Florida real estate agents Craig Wolf and Jane Weaver are moving to Trump International Realty. They originally worked for Premier Sotheby’s until just a few weeks ago.
Trump International Realty has been in operation since 2012. The firm has grown to include more coverage around the country. Wolf and Weaver are the first two Trump real estate agents in the Southwest Florida area.
Wolf said that the opportunity to be associated with the Trump brand was a big deal. He also said that the decision had nothing to do with Trump’s presidential run. He states that the Trump name is synonymous with luxury and quality and that this brand will give him and Weaver an advantage over others in the area.
Premier Sotheby’s representatives and employees could not be reached for any comment to respond.
Wolf has been growing as a popular real estate agent in recent time. He used to be a television news anchor at NBC 2and has worked as a futures and commodities trader.
Wolf first met Eric Trump, Donald Trump’s son, at a PGA tournament event at the Trump National Doral event. Wolf hit it up with Trump and eventually agreed to use the Trump name for his efforts.
The Trump name has been growing as there are currently seven Trump locations for its real estate services. The company works predominantly in New York and Florida but it also has locations in Charlotte and Las Vegas.
Wolf and Weaver have their office at 780 Fifth Avenue South in Naples. They are also associated with a brokerage in Doral. The group has two listings at the moment but at the same time they are expected to grow their offerings are more people explore the benefits of working with the Trump name.
The group has a $1.3 million three-bedroom canal-front property on Sanibel Island. A $3 million 13.2-acre lot in Fort Myers near the Forest Golf and Country Club is also available through the group.
Competing real estate entities in the area have welcomed the Trump brand to the fray. They are especially appreciative of the competition as it makes it to where people are going to be more competitive while trying to do better than each other within the field.
