EXPOSURE: Selling homes takes more than just being listed on the MLS. Of the 2000 REALTORS® who subscribe to the Multiple Listing Service, only a few are willing to display your home properly or give your home the exposure it needs in today’s market. In addition to pro-active marketing, we believe in effective, well written, targeted advertising along with carefully placed internet exposure and promotion.
EFFECTIVE PROSPECTING: Prospecting is the art of finding buyers from effective ads... newspapers, magazines, lenders, Internet ads, mass mailings, e-mail campaigns & telephone canvassing. Unlike most REALTORS®, we personally receive all of our ad calls. This assures proper promotion of your home. We’ll tailor our marketing to fit your home, and your needs.
