What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

I am more than pleased with my experience with Barkett Realty and specifically, EJ Barkett. He went above and beyond to make sure we had all of the information we needed to decide on whether we were going to lease or sell our space. EJ was on top of communication; we were never left wondering what was happening next or where we were in the process. He walked us through every step and had a ton of patience with our questions and needs. I will only use EJ Barkett at Barkett Realty in the future for our commercial brokerage needs. He's a hidden gem!

We were looking for an expansion office into the St. Petersburg area, and while our headquarters was only 30 miles away, having that local knowledge of what would really hit the mark is where Barkett Realty really paid dividends. We saved countless hours by avoiding tours of buildings and properties that quite frankly EJ knew wouldn’t work. He did tours and research ahead of time, and we landed on the perfect spot in a matter of weeks. From there he worked with both the landlord and contractor through the entire buildout, allowing us to focus on our core business while work was being done. They come highly recommended, and we will 100% use them again for future expansions.

I was referred to EJ of Barkett Realty by a friend. I am an Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapist and had a short time span to find a space suitable for my new practice. I had certain specifications that were important to me, and once EJ and I met he fully understood my needs. He was punctual, professional, efficient, and unrelenting in finding the right spot. EJ's enthusiasm, positive demeanor and efficiency led to him finding, and me renting the perfect space. I have recommended EJ to patients and friends and will continue to do so due to his empathetic, friendly approach to communicating with my wife and I during the process of seeking out and closing on the building.

I recently started the daunting task of finding a commercial property for my business. I was intimidated but blessed that I crossed paths with EJ. From the first conversation, he took the time to explain things in-depth, and made me feel that there was no stupid question. He is thorough, hard-working, and professional. His extensive expertise and deeply rooted connections are a bonus and were instrumental in securing the perfect spot for my business. Most of all, he is a good person who is a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a realtor. I am confident you will be as pleased as I have been.

As founders of The Collective St. Pete, we are beyond impressed with our experience with Barkett Realty! EJ was fantastic to work with and always responsive to our plethora of questions we had along the way. Opening up a physical space, and starting a commercial lease was new territory for us, EJ and his team were incredibly patient and supportive along the way. The Barkett Realty team made sure we stayed on track and demonstrated poise and care during challenging negotiations. They showed us how much they truly care about their clients’ needs and made our peace of mind a priority. We hope to work with them in the future and would highly recommend them to manage any type of commercial lease or real estate asset.
