How long will it take to sell my Deland home?

I have calculated the average days on the market for a home in Deland during the month of August to be approximately 139 days.

A Deland home seller could realistic expect their home to stay on the market nearly 5 months before receiving an offer.

There are ways we can help you shorten the time your home sets on the market.  Email me to find out what price your home will sell for and how long it will take.

Florida Hospital Deland promises to enhance the patient experience

I received a $10 gift certificate today along with a letter from 
Florida Hospital Deland.  The letter explained that as of September 
2007, Florida Hospital began working on the goal of making sure all 
walk-in emergency room patients will see a doctor in less than 60-minutes upon of arrival.

The gift certificate, which is redeemable at any Main Street Deland 
merchant, was sent to me because of the Hospital not being able to 
fulfill their “see a doc in less than 60-minutes” promise from a recent 

Kudos to the Hospital for working to improve their customer service.   
How great would it be if this type of attitude was common place 
through-out the customer service business world.

Do we take our customers for granted, comfortable in the belief that 
we are doing all our customers expect us to do and since they continue 
to come back to us, we have no reason to improve?  I am hard pressed 
to think of another customer service business that has more of a 
captive “customer” that a hospital’s emergency room.  And yet, there 
they are trying to make the experience, less stressful.

Hats off to Florida Hospitals and thank you for the gift certificate.
