Wieland knows his market -- which is people just like himself -- and he knows how and where to reach them. Heck, they already know each other. You might "hawk" a $180,000 or $300,000 condo, but an exclusive building like this, across from the High with nothing but $2,000,000+ condos, will be filled quietly and discretely. John Wieland is no fool.
Wow, Marketworks! Was I ever WRONG! This is genius! A Web site for a condo that's specifically NOT aimed at potential buyers! Now how clever is that?! It's a DECOY! It's clearly aimed at all those people who have no interest in plunking down $2M+ for a condo. Its hideous design is meant to tell anyone who is seriously thinking about purchasing a unit, "Not so fast, mister or ma'am, this site ain't for YOU!"
Man what fools those people at The Mansion on Peachtree, Trump Towers Atlanta and other high-end condo projects are for crafting those beautiful, informative Web sites chock-full of detailed floor plans, renderings from multiple angles and extensive lists of amenities. FOOLS! What a huge waste of time. As if their customers even touch a computer. Filthy Internet! Only the poor and unstylish would ever get their information from it.
Thanks for clearing this all up, MarketWorks!
Oh and by the way, "discretely" and "discreetly" aren't the same word. Ummm... yeah.
