Tech Wiz-Turned-Realtor: Former Computer Programmer Tops Real Estate Buyers Agents with Recent Sale of St. Pete’s Most Expensive Condo

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (Realty Wire) June 27, 2023 — The $6,525,000 closing price of a Parkshore Plaza condo in May set the record as the highest-price condo in St. Petersburg ─ eclipsing the fact that the unit’s buyers agent, Anna Dementov, has sold $22 million in residential real estate deals in the hot Florida markets of St. Petersburg and Clearwater in the last few months. Landing her in the top 1% of residential agents in Tampa Bay, her trajectory now predicts that she will close $60 million in 2023 ─ despite the fact that the inventory of active listings is now roughly 50 percent lower than before the pandemic. Even with some challenges, real estate leaders in the Midwest say Florida remains a hot spot nationally. (1) ”The growth of the Florida pipeline remains strong in spite of challenges with the economy nationally, and I am personally seeing a steady stream of interested sellers and buyers” notes Anna Dementov of Florida Luxury Group.

Dementov’s ability to navigate a softened inventory sets her apart. Her “off-market deals” strategy, which comprised 50% of her business in 2021, has become a game-changer in the industry. In 2023, this approach accounted for 15% of her business. The string of success continues with closings of five condominiums in the JW Marriott Resort on Clearwater Beach, averaging $1.5 million each, and another $5 million deal set to close shortly.

Dementov’s secret for managing a database of over 10,000 buyers worldwide to match with high-end local sellers is an advantage linked to her background. The automated marketing machine she developed through computer programming engages the power of technology to build and maintain a personal touch with clients and create long-term relationships.

Her mastered art of captivating a distinguished audience in Clearwater Beach and Downtown St. Petersburg focuses her specialization on properties valued over $1 million and has earned the trust of those with secondary homes out of state, as well as those who consider downtown St. Petersburg their primary residence.

“Technology is a facilitator—and has been a game changer for my business, notes Anna Dementov. “The technology I use to match high-end sellers with high-end buyers has made the biggest difference in my success—and have given me the ability to personally communicate with hundreds more buyers on a weekly basis, than I could without it.”

Dementov said the time she saves using technology, she is able to use to focus on what is happening in the market in real-time, to provide research and key insights to her clients that they need to navigate their real estate purchases.
