Condo Domain: Hottest Online Real Estate Brokerage

By Briana Booker

Searching for a new place to live? Need to familiarize yourself with an area of a town? Or you need comic relief? If yes to any of these questions, you should check out Condo Domain!                                                   

Condo Domain is an online real estate brokerage founded in Boston in 2005 by Anthony Longo, technology guru. Longo gave a new and unique twist to the real estate search by combining online social media with much needed information on location and residential pricing. This interested people by making finding a new home to be a fun process rather than a completely stressful process.  Longo’s ability to keep people intrigued and informed allowed his business to become one of the top 10 brokerages in Boston.                                                                                                                                                                                 

Since then, he has expanded his company with agencies in Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore,  Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Orlando, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Diego, Seattle, San Francisco, and Washington DC, just to name a few.                                                                       

Fromgirltogirl decided to ask Condo Domain Washington DC a few questions on real estate in the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area. We interviewed Simon Landau; Landau is a George Washington University Alum ’09 (as well as an alum of Gilman ’05 high school and Baltimore native). At GWU he majored in journalism, with a focus in media and public affairs. Three months into this field he realized he did not necessarily find journalism that appealing. However, he remained with journalism but narrowed his scope more to multimedia, video and camera broadcasting. Landau first job after college was in the field of freelance video-graphing, film and editing. Some of his work in freelance dealt with filming the Women’s National Basketball Association (WNBA) Washington Mystics and creating short advertisements!                                                                                                                                                                                 

Landau, looking for full-time employment during this recession, came across Condo Domain. He was interested in joining the social media project here in Washington DC.  DC is Condo Domain’s second major market place. Landau is presently a social media coordinator at Condo Domain. Occasionally, Landau does social media for Baltimore Domain as well!                                                                                                                     

Landau states the basic real estate’s goal is to give an overview of quality of life, importance of location and what necessities (grocery stores, convenient stores, neighborhood schools, churches, gas stations, public transportation, etc.) are close to one’s desired location for new residency.  Condo Domain gives the basics and much more!                                                                                                                                

Its goal is to keep a tight knit staff that will cater to a diverse population. The company guarantees that if you register with them, you will be connected with a representative that will guide you every step of the way or help you where you prefer to be helped in the process of finding a place to live! In addition, customers are eligible to receive a 20% cash refund commission back after finding a place! On average customers can receive up to $10,000 for a refund!                                                                          

Landau informed Fromgirltogirl that DC real estate market is one of the top real estate markets in the world! He explains this is based on the Federal government jump starting the revival of the economy in DC, the government creating jobs in and around DC and DC being a top employment area. Also, new building developments are coming up rapidly, high demand to buy is increasing and the likelihood of a huge investment paying off is increasing in the real estate market.                                                     

Areas too hot to handle
When we asked Landau to name a few hot spots for real estate attractiveness in DC he told us the following:
1.       The U-street corridors, for its nice neighborhood and convenience to shops and restaurants.
2.         Columbia Heights, for its less expensive but good quality of living that is close to downtown DC.
3.       National Stadium and South West Water front. It is a great cultural area, has a lovely water front and it is near the capital!

What is ahead for Condo Domain?

1.       This quarter Condo Domain will be focusing on Condo Urban areas in New York and Chicago!
2.        Anna Zillow, City Vice President Broker will be hiring more agents in DC.

Why Fromgirltogirl recommends Condo Domain?

We love Condo Domain! It is fun, informative and useful! We visit the website every week just to check up on daily happenings around town such as how people in DC are dealing with the aftermath of the snowpocalypse! The street reporting that takes place leaves locales and real estate searchers able to know more about a community before going to an area. It shows you everything in the community, even looks are surprised when Condo Domain shows them something they never new existed around the corner! Condo Domain is definitely a must read and watch blog (the video blogs are too entertaining)! They promote all readers and video watchers to write their opinions about Condo Domain as well as ask questions!                                                                                                                                                                 

We recommend saying Hi to Landau and the other staffers when you see them around town! They are very cool, laid back, and useful! We think you can not beat that in business or play!                                                                                                                                                                              Check out the blog and website links below:
