Marketing Your Home
Buyers With Emotional Connections Pay More
Every property has a unique story, and we will work together to discover what is valuable and interesting about yours! Buying a home is an emotional experience and you want prospective buyers to make an emotional connection with your property. Buyers who fall in love with a property or community will pay more. We use the “story of your property” to decide the best photos and to develop the other aspects of your marketing. Our advanced property marketing will make that story come to life - online, in print, and in person.
Website Listing Syndication
With over 90% of home searches beginning online, it is important that our listings have a strong online presence. That’s why, we expose our listings to over 40,000 national real estate websites. Additionally, we send our listings to nearly 100 international websites, including Juwai – the largest Chinese international
property platform with over two million consumers. Our listing syndication network is very sophisticated and ensures that we provide the most robust data and fastest updates. No other brokerage provides such extensive exposure for homes!
Mobile Friendly Website
Today’s smart phone users can view our homes for sale from anywhere! We have made our famously simple-to-use mobile website even easier for the smart phone user. By enabling our website to be friendly to mobile users, you can count on easy navigation of our homes for sale and agent contact information when you are on the go. Our site even includes a convenient GPS search!
24/7 Text Marketing
We offer an excellent text marketing solution that makes your property information available 24/7 to consumers. We will assign a text code to the property which can be displayed with a rider on the yard sign and used in print materials. Buyers simply send a text message to the code given and receive all the property details instantly. At the same time, the listing agent receives a message including the consumers contact information for follow up.
Our Facebook presence is the strongest in the local marketplace. We have aggressively posted and advertised to this audience, which in turn has brought more awareness of not only our brand, but our listings. Facebook and other forms of social media can be important mediums for marketing your property to buyer prospects.Because these are “social networks” by design, the marketing must be more relational and indirect versus other mediums. Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter continue
to grow very quickly and are an important aspect of your property marketing.
We advertise in local community papers and magazines when appropriate. Our national brand does extensive advertising in national and global print mediums highlighting our Luxury Collection.
