Our Business Philosophy and Ethical Commitment to you…

“Others will work hard to get your listing… We work harder marketing your home.  Which is more important to you?”

 

My daughter Emily has joined me contributing her unique generational insight and energy to our marketing efforts.  We are in the midst of executing a new, yet ever evolving, approach to target marketing the sale of properties.  We take the trust you place in us seriously.  Others work hard to get the listing, then effectively turn it over to the broker and the MLS to market and sell your most valuable asset.  That approach is better known as the “List it and Quit it” approach.  That simply does not happen here and it rarely works to the advantage of the seller.

 

When we list a property our ethics tell us…. “We personally own the marketing process.  That ownership must be matched with action.  We work hard marketing your home.”

You literally hold the knowledge of the world in our hand.  Chances are you are holding a small object in your hand right now reading these very words.
Today, more than ever before, we find ourselves immersed in technology that at its core has the ability to stunningly present properties at their finest while at the same time distract us with shiny objects deflecting a buyers attention from your home.  We provide a quiet needed balance while presenting your home.

 

Our “Client Needs” based marketing harnesses that very power you hold in your hands.  Our mutual goal is to sell your property at the highest reasonable price in the shortest time possible.  Successful marketing plans should always include the most powerful and appropriate visual assets displaying your home’s most appealing features.  That must be followed by using those assets in custom tailored marketing efforts.  We go beyond what every broker offers.  We go that extra mile.  We own the marketing process.

Our efforts include:

  • This website is designed with simplicity and elegance in mind.  We display your home in a manner beyond what agencies and the Multi-List present.  We eliminate the distractions of selling mortgages, home inspections, home warranties, calculators etc.  We market your home.  That’s all that matters to you.
  • We use the best professional photographer available in the area today.
  • Utilization of aerial video and images when appropriate (always an FAA licensed and insured pilot.  That high school kid with a drone just doesn’t cut it.  Furthermore that’s against the law)
  • Production of Zillow Walk-Thru videos and even higher end video productions where appropriate.  These have proven to boost views on Zillow 2 to 10 times over similar properties without videos.
  • Creation of custom targeted ad campaigns to run on Zillow, Facebook and Google Ad-Words where appropriate.
  • Integration of marketing efforts utilizing technology in the most effective and productive manner
  • Staging advice and assistance when needed.  This really makes a difference.

Your success is our passion…
