About Platinum Group
A resident of St. Petersburg's Historic Old Northeast Neighborhood, Connie especially loves dealing with historic homes, luxury condos, bungalows, and of course, beach properties. She also enjoys working with second-home buyers and vacation buyers. Connie Lancaster has a bachelor's degree in education but lives and breathes Real Estate. She is a full-time professional. "Real Estate has been a passion for many years," says Connie, who previously had a 20 plus year successful career marketing high end European automobiles. "My partner and I have invested in a number of properties over the years. We have a lot of investment experience from new construction to historic homes, multi-family properties including condo conversions, and have taken advantage of 1031 exchanges." Originally from South Carolina, Connie is well connected in the Real Estate industry in North Carolina, where she and her partner built a log home in Maggie Valley over nineteen years ago. The "House of Views," as they call the log home, is located in friendly Maggie Valley, a popular destination in the heart of the Great Smoky Mountains. "Even when I go to the mountains for vacation, I spend much of my time looking at properties." Connie says, "Most of my business comes from referrals, even though my partners and I have a strong presence on the internet and that has generated a number of customers, buying and selling. Sales and marketing are certainly a large part of what Connie and her partners provide. They offer much more than is traditional because of their close associations with their team of vendors, and the ability to offer their clients knowledge and services that go far beyond the actual real estate transaction." Connie's general knowledge of the real estate business, specific knowledge of the market, and her understanding of the latest market trends provide buyers and sellers with an invaluable resource throughout the process. "Our group invests a lot of time and money marketing for our clients. The company is second to none and we are so very proud to be part of the Smith family." It is truly " No Better Time, No Better Place."
