Cyber Monday sales surge 20% to record high

Cyber Monday sales broke a record in 2013, with shopping on mobile devices leading the charge. Cyber Monday sales jumped 20.6% year-to-year, making it the biggest online shopping day in history, according to an analysis released by IBM (IBM, Fortune 500) Tuesday.
Purchases made on mobile devices surged 55.4% year-over-year, and made up 17% of Monday’s total online sales, according to IBM’s e-commerce report. Smartphones were more popular for making purchases than Tablets, said IBM.
This is in stark contrast to Black Friday sales, which fell 13.2% from the prior year, according to ShopperTrak, a retail industry firm. But that’s partly because many retailers, including Toys ‘R’ Us, WalMart (WMT, Fortune 500), Target (TGT, Fortune 500) and Best Buy (BBY, Fortune 500), opened their doors on Thanksgiving Thursday, cutting into the traditional Black Friday sales.
ShopperTrak said sales for Black Weekend, which spans Thanksgiving Day through Sunday, crept up 1% compared to last year. “Black Friday shopping is no longer a one-day event,” the firm said in a press release.

Joseph Sabeh Jr.

Please let me introduce myself, I am Joseph Sabeh, Jr a full time licensed professional realtor. I have been with Executive Homes Realty for over 13 years and was trained by my late father and Broker, Joseph Sabeh. I recently incorporated the company and we moved the office to 43513 Mission Blvd just last summer. I could not have found a more honorable place to work. After earning my experience selling high end Ralph Lauren suits and studying business management in southern California, I decided to pursue my dream of selling real estate and working with my father. He had already had such an excellent reputation and established a niche market of high end clientele that catered to the very best. I wanted to become the consummate professional just like him and have strived to become just that being just a phone call or email away from getting back to my client’s immediate needs! Known by my clients for my tenacity, perseverance , and excellence in negotia- tion(Certified Negotiation Expert), I have always strived to meet my clients high demands and goals. As a result of my professionalism, I have achieved an extensive portfolio of referrals from past and present clients. I credit my current values from my upbringing of my parents and the credit is due to them without question. Their integrity, pride, and willingness to sacrifice for the better of my life and my sister’s always left a mark on me that one day I will pass on. Their desire to achieve a better life and live it to the fullest is one that some families dream of and I certainly am appreciative of all of the education and etiquette I have learned from them both. I have sold condos up to 3.2 million dollar homes and I am here for any and all of your future real estate needs and wishing you the very best experience in your future real estate endeavors with me.
