| Meet our newest leader, DONDI HOPKINS, South Florida Team Lead.
While the rest of the real estate industry reports losses, decrease in sales, and drop in their stock, DJ & Lindsey Real estate is reporting quite the opposite. In late October, DJ DellaSala, CEO of DJ & Lindsey Real Estate, reported that his brokerage was actually UP 35% from their year over year sales volume. A mind blowing statistic given the state of the industry and its reported “shifting market”. However, that’s not the only thing he reported. He re-established the new acquisition and hiring of a new leader in their Jacksonville office, Holly Taylor. He continued on about expansion and growth and finally concluded with another big acquisition and announcement.
As the real estate industry pulls back, we will continue to expand and grow. Citing a phrase prominent in the brokerage, expand or expire. In that breath, he announced our South Florida office will be home to another huge new leader, Dondi Hopkins.
