SkipJack Marketing Announces Strategic Alliance with Avalon Partners, LLC

SkipJack Marketing and New York City based Avalon Partners have formed a strategic alliance to offer a broader, more complete array of services to their respective affluent clients.

Online PR News – 07-October-2009 – – SkipJack Marketing, an international real estate marketing firm, boasting a portfolio of residential properties which includes 5 premier developments in the Dominican Republic, Belize, The Bahamas, Nicaragua and in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, USA; Avalon Partners, an international commercial/resort properties specialist with a focus on the Turks and Caicos Islands, Belize and New York City, have joined forces to better serve their clients. Avalon Partners represents owners, investors, and developers of unique properties, luxurious villas, ocean front estates, exceptional homes, development sites, and luxury residential properties.

Through the newly formed alliance, both companies gain the opportunity to work with a broader base of clients while remaining within their geographical niches. Bob Hazard, owner of SkipJack Marketing, stated that “some of my clients have asked me in the past if I know of any resorts or hotels for sale, and I have always had to reply in the negative, now I can say yes…as a matter of fact…I do.”

SkipJack's properties range from inexpensive beachfront casitas in Belize, to million dollar (plus) penthouse condominium/hotel properties in the Dominican Republic. SkipJack also offers individual home sites starting at $15,000 USD in the Bahamas featuring owner financing, and will be introducing a new Private Residence Club in Nicaragua soon.

Avalon Partners tend to offer either large parcels of undeveloped or partially developed land ready for the hotel developer to come in and build, or they represent off-market (operational) resorts, which rely on the firm’s discretion and professionalism to get the job done. Avalon prides themselves on the fact that the majority of their business comes through client referrals, as the nature of their clientele is very affluent investors who prefer to keep their business very discreet.

”It became apparent to me almost immediately, in our first discussion” said Mr. Hazard of conversation with Grace and Patrick Lappin (the brother and sister team at Avalon) “Their basic principles of treating clients with honest and ethical service are perfectly aligned with my business goals.” Mr. Hazard went on to explain that both companies are involved in a variety of charitable activities and make “giving back” part of their day-to-day business philosophies.

Avalon Partners is located in New York City with a Central Park address, which is indicative of the level of clientele they are associated with. Each property they choose to represent, from private islands in Belize to exquisite resorts in the Turks and Caicos Islands, are carefully researched prior to representation.

SkipJack Marketing is located in Nashua, NH and is very well experienced in the tropical regions in which they represent developers. Each location and each development has been carefully selected to meet the goals and priorities of the company while offering a fulfilling solution to international real estate investors.
