Despite the media reports on "slowing" home sales to the economy, we have not found this to be true in Jasper County! Our sales have remained stable the last 2 months with buyers continuing to be conservative. Our year to date market share is 42% of the sales in the Newton community. We feel a large part of our success is our commanding presence on the internet and our websites doyledevoe.com and NewtonIowaRealty.com. Newton is a wonderful place to live and more and more poeple are realizing this!

A couple of months ago I decided to make everyone register if they wanted to see interior photos of homes so the customer has to put in his name, phone number, e-mail address then he can look at homes on our website to his heart content. Obviously the reason I make them register is to capture more leads for  our listings.This past week I recieved a nasty note from a guy and he really gave me a earful on what he thought about signing up on my website. I emailed him back with a nicey nicey note. I bet he w...
