Yet, against all odds, the amazing Champagne & Parisi Realtors have fought for their clients and have proven the innate value of a strong supporting presence. Through speaking with our experts, we learned about these 5 tips to win your home bidding war. Read on to get started!

In many ways, Real Estate retains its old-school methodology compared to other industries, like retail and entertainment. The amount of time spent behind the wheel, on the phones, and speaking directly with clients has allowed the digital age to drag Realty along without completely disposing of traditional marketing and business practices. Yet, even in a field dominated by intrapersonal skills and sheer work ethic, there are many newfangled ideas and methods brought in by these winds of change. Here are 5 ways modern technology is changing real estate, and how you can be ready for the next big thing.
Use Of Big Data
"Big Data" is not a phrase used to describe the conspiratorial notion that "data" is up to no good, in the same way, we'd colloquially describe "big pharma" or "big oil." "Big Data" is simply a means to describe the sheer capacity and volume of informational intake that modern technology affords us. With larger data sets, the ability to retrieve key data immediately, and real-time statistical reporting, Realtors possess the ability to influence decisions and inform clients with information that massively exceeds what was once available.
The best of Boca Luxury Condos provide amenities that would make a celebrity jealous. With everything from crystalline pool decks, picturesque golf courses, and steps to a shimmering beachfront, it's easy to see why "clutter' wouldn't even be a thought to most luxury condo owners. However, even with maid service and an eye for detail, condos are an exchange of space for luxury, and thusly can lead to cluttered situations that single-family homes may provide the space to better accommodate. This Spring, we are excited to share more tips and tricks that our clients and Realtors use to keep their Boca condos decluttered. Learn more below!
Keep Flat Surfaces Clear
The easy temptation is to use your counters, tables, and desks as temporary (or not so temporary) storage points for things that don't have a "place." This could be true for paperwork, devices, even desk trinkets that are looking for a permanent home. Clearing flat surfaces allow for more workspace (obviously) but ensuring the most tempting of places to clutter your home turns into one of the most reassuring. A cluttered home is a cluttered mind, and there's no better place to start than clearing those counters!
We'd say Podcasts are the "future," but they are very much a part of the present. Some of the most popular entertainment of all time has been fed to us via streaming podcasts - most notably the likes of Joe Rogan, among millions of others. With podcasts, we have instant access to (usually) commercial free content tailored exactly to our interests. Rather than sifting through hours of commercials and unimportant information, podcasts grant us the capacity to listen efficiently. With how much time our Champagne & Parisi Realtors spend on the road working for you, we'd be remiss not to share some their favorite Real Estate podcasts that pace the industry and provide value with every listen. Here are 5 Real Estate podcasts that every Realtor should listen to - and why.

With so many days of sunny, seasonable weather, "beach reading" has become its subgenre of books.

While Boca luxury condo owners enjoy the crisp sea breeze from their patio or on the sand, many of us choose to delve into a good book. we've found 5 of the best Florida-themed books to kick off your beach reading season today.

Small Town, Big Secrets: Inside the Boca Raton Army Air Field During World War II
- Written By: Sally J. Ling, 2012
With so much of South Florida's diaspora and urban sprawl taking place in the last three or four decades, it's easy to forget the intrinsic involvement South Florida, namely Boca Raton had on the war effort.

It was here at the (then) top-secret Boca Raton Army Air Field that troops learned to install, maintain, and operate the radar - a new technology at the time that can be credited among a handful of innovations that turned the tide of the war for the allies, and...
