Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty gets new web site

www.celiadunnsir.com .

All properties in Multi-List are on new site, and phone app gives access to all listings and ability to search properties in several ways.

(SAVANNAH, Ga.) – Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty is now more mobile, thanks to its new web site, www.celiadunnsir.com . The site is now more compatible with smart phones and iPads and faster loading. The site also boasts many other improvements and features to help both buyers and sellers.

All properties for sale in metro Savannah (including Chatham, Effingham, Bryan and more), and Hilton Head and Bluffon, S.C. are now on the site.

There’s also a link to get Sotheby’s International Realty’s new free mobile phone app, which gives people the ability to see all Multi-List listings on their phone, as well as search by GPS, address, city, ZIP code, property type and more. The free app is one of several features from Sotheby’s.

The partnership with Sotheby’s means that sellers have a world of buyers able to see their property. Listings are automatically fed to18 of the most highly trafficked real estate web sites.

“The marketing that we can provide because of our connection with Sotheby’s is tremendous,” said Lori Combs, Director of Sales and Marketing for Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty. “Many people associate Sotheby’s with a price point, but we associate it with the level of customer service that we provide when you list a home with us, no matter the price point.”

The size, crispness, quality and scope of photos on the new site have even drawn compliments from other real estate companies, Combs said. Each home can have an unlimited number of photos on the site.

Standout features such as an outdoor kitchen can be highlighted for each home on the new site, which now lets the sales associates customize the individual amenities in a larger-print, quick-read format next to the more detailed information.

“Our priority is always to offer excellent customer service with integrity,” said Celia Dunn of Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty. “The new web site offers amazing convenience and access to every property for sale in the area. We love being able to help customers and clients find their new home or sell a home so they can buy their new home.”

Open Houses and new listings both have a heading on the new site, making them easy to find. The mortgage calculator is now more accessible on the site.

People moving to Savannah now have convenience features making it easier for the new homebuyer to go online and do a change of address, find out about schools, get a new driver’s license and more. The new web site now also has descriptions of the many communities and neighborhoods to choose from in Savannah and the Low Country.

Buyers can email questions about a listing directly to the sales associate; the email also is copied to management to ensure every question gets a timely response.

Known for its tradition of integrity, Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty specializes in residential and commercial properties in Savannah and the Low Country of Georgia and South Carolina. Founded in 1981, Celia Dunn Sotheby’s International Realty is noted for outstanding service to its clients, thorough knowledge of Savannah and the South Carolina Low Country, and excellent staff, in addition to having one of the region’s top property management departments.

Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society Announces October 6 Grand Marshal for the Buddy Walk: Paula Deen

 

(SAVANNAH,GA) Join Savannah’s own bestselling author, restaurateur and Emmy Award-winning Food Network television star Paula Deen as she laces up her sneakers as Grand Marshal of the 2012 Buddy Walk on Saturday, October 6, 2012. Deen will be leading walk participants in the one mile fundraising event around historic Forsyth Park in Savannah, Georgia.

Thousands of people are expected to attend the event, which raises
awareness and funds for local programs, including Camp Buddy, that benefit
people with Down syndrome and their families. Last year’s LDSS Buddy Walk
welcomed over 4,000 participants.

Paula Deen’s son Jamie Deen, also a bestselling cookbook author and tv
personality, sits on the LDSS board, and has served as Buddy Walk Grand
Marshal the past two years.

“As Jamie will not be in Savannah for the Buddy Walk this year,
it is my great honor to take his place as Grand Marshal,” said Paula
Deen. She added, “I am excited to be part of this uplifting celebration and
lend my support in promoting awareness and acceptance of folks with Down
syndrome. I’m looking forward to a strong turn out of my Savannah and
Lowcountry neighbors and friends at the Buddy Walk!”

The Buddy Walk Program welcomes participants of all ages and abilities.
Bring your carriage, strollers, wheelchairs, little red wagons and pets.
Don’t leave anyone behind as we stroll around Forsyth Park. The goals are
to promote acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome and to
positively influence local and national policy and practice. Last year
alone, Buddy Walk events nationally raised more that $11.2 million to
benefit education, research, and advocacy initiatives, as well as the Night
of Champions, Camp Buddy and many other services right here in the
Lowcountry and Coastal Empire.

The walk begins at 10:00 am. The Family Fun Festival begins immediately
following the walk. The Festival will feature all kinds of activities such
as face painting, pumpkin painting,the BOO Boutique, bouncy houses, games,
music and refreshments and last until 2 PM. The LDSS Buddy Walk is one of
more than 300 Buddy Walks taking place across the country this October to
celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness Month.

Registration forms for the walk are available online at  www.ldssga.org or
sign-up starting at 8:30 AM day of the event. Registration is $12.00 per
person or $40.00 for a family of four. Registration includes this years
limited edition T-Shirt, Lunch and admission to the festival. To learn
more, visit www.ldssga.org or contact John or Candy Bogardus at (912)
