Focusing on a consumer centered web marketing system, Tallahassee’s Century 21 office is considered one of the forefront leaders in how to use internet marketing to help people sell and buy a home.

CENTURY 21 Manausa and Associates (2000 to 2011)

century21-Manausa and AssociatesCENTURY 21 Manausa and Associates was formed in 2000 by a merger between Manausa and Associates of Tallahassee and CENTURY 21 Advanced Realty. The CENTURY 21 franchise offered a great opportunity for a company that already had clients in many other parts of the world. With a real estate support system recognized as the top in the industry, CENTURY 21 allows a company in a relatively small market operate as a power player in a worldwide market. There is no better affiliation for a company that exists to help people buy and sell real estate.

Manausa and Associates and RE/MAX Realty North (1992-1999)

REMAX In Tallahassee FloridaManausa and Associates was formed when Joe determined that it was not beneficial to renew the franchise that the company had utilized for the previous six years.Logo Needing a stronger support system, particularly with the growth of the internet, Joe decided to “go independent” and take the time to examine all of the offerings in the real estate franchise business. While many “flavors” existed, Joe knew that the better companies would be embracing the internet as the new premier marketing medium in the real estate industry. After over a year of study, the choice of CENTURY 21 was easy to make.

    Joe,
    USMA ’84. Saw your profile on linkedin’s Army Football group. I am planning a move to Tampa area, and wonder if you have an agent you would recommend in the Area. I am moving from N.Y., and will need to sell here. Was considering renting at first until I learn the Area, but maybe a good agent could make me feel more comfortable with a purchase.

    Any info helpful. Thanks for your time.

    Hello Joe, I am a federal employee who currently lives in Okinawa, Japan. My sister lives near Orlando and recently married her soul mate so the family and I traveled to FL to spend time at Disney World and attend the wedding. My dad rented a vacation home while we were there and the experience has peaked my interest, now I am considering purchasing a vacation home myself. This would be my first home purchase so I’m glad I stumbled upon your website first. I will continue to research the possibilities before jumping into a decision. Just wanted to say thanks.

    • Joe Manausa, MBA says:

      Thank you for the note Maurice. “Measure twice and cut once” before buying a vacation home … :)

  5. Hi Joe,
    I’m Michael Boyd and also from Tallahassee but now live in MD after retiring from the Army. I was in Nuclear Maintenance and worked with the Rangers often! I also worked at Walter Reed AMC with our Wounded Warriors before it closed up in September 2011 and started the Vacations for Vets program which you can use at ( http://ihoot.org/vacation-for-vets).

    I presently have 27 Real Estate professionals and 4 Mortgage Brokers that are business partners of mine from MD, DC, VA, FL (Palm Coast), CA, OK, NE, KS, OH and AZ. This may or may not be for you but please take a look at my 4 min video, you are giving away money every time you or one of your Rep’s sale a Home and/or Commercial Property…

    Joe,

    I’m about to retire from the Army as a permanently disabled vet with 90% from the VA. My family and I are hoping to move to the Tallahassee area where I intend to finish a college degree at FSU. Unfortunately, I just got blindsided by the Army a little bit and am likely coming down on retirement orders in the next two weeks; 4 months earlier than we were initially told.

    Therefore, we could be needing an apartment/townhouse/etc for rent beginning in January, and are not really sure where to begin. We have three small children (ages 3, 2, and 9 months) and therefore would need something we can afford within the 2-3 bedroom range (they’re all girls, not concerned with separate rooms, yet), and a landlord that would be flexible with deposit, and maybe 1st month’s rent. We’re pulling together as much money as we can at the last minute because we were actually paying off debts BEFORE my disability retirement and counting on our tax return before looking at buying a house; now we’ll have to rent, at least temporarily.

    I saw that you are former military and immediately wanted to contact you for assistance, as you probably know somewhat the predicament we’ve been placed in so suddenly. If you could contact me at my email address, I would greatly appreciate it asap. Thank you very much for your help.

    - Phillip
