Photos are the number 1 most important piece of marketing your home, they are the foundation for all of our other marketing efforts. We hire a company of professional real estate photographers to do a photo shoot with high definition photos and a virtual tour. We also create a virtual showing in 3D that allows the homebuyer to walk through the home in virtually. This technology is incredible and it allows the homebuyer to experience your home in private. When a homebuyer experiences your home in virtual reality they are more likely to remember it, to share it, and to talk themselves into buying it. In addition to the photography and virtual showing technology, we create a blog post and marketing pieces for your home, neighborhood, and community. We tell a story with our photos and with our words that invoke the emotions that are necessary for a buyer to feel excited about starting the next chapter of their life in your home. Once we have the storyline, photos, property descriptions, property snippets, blog posts, virtual tours, and virtual showings developed we go through each of the major real estate search sites and optimize your properties placement. We link back to our tours, photos and descriptions wherever possible and create an experience for the buyers that they will not forget.

Is there a park nearby? A shopping mall? Are there children in the neighborhood? What is the reputation of the school district? These are questions potential buyers always ask.

We pull together an information packet that includes background on the school district, area parks and recreational activities, local shopping and entertainment areas, churches, and any other resource material that may help in the marketing your home. All this information is condensed into a neighborhood fact sheet that is included in the profile booklets distributed to potential buyers.
