This looks and sounds familiar
There is music, drinks, food and smart people, but this is not an ordinary party; it is the launch of yet another real estate development in Sao Paulo, Brazil's largest city. Construction of the properties that are up for sale has not yet started and buyers will not get into their new homes for another two years, yet the competition for the best spots is fierce. When a customer decides to buy, the estate agent has to rush through all the relevant the documents before a competitor closes the deal. "Last night I didn't have any sleep because we spent all night closing deals," says sales supervisor Thiago Davidian. "My team sold more than 50 units yesterday and more are going as we speak."
