Experience Matters! When you list your home with a Realtor, you are hiring that Realtor to market your property. For many, unfortunately, marketing consists of a sign in the yard and entry into the multiple listing service. When you list with me, I promise to market your property as agressively as I would market my own...I work very hard to maximize my listings' exposure to potential buyers...consistently, every day. And, with me, you will get a sign in your yard and entry into the mls, and a whole lot more!
Professional, Responsive & Friendly Service
When you list your home with me, I promise to be responsive to your calls and emails, your questions and your needs. With a background in customer service for new homes, I understand the importance of prompt attention. I make myself available to my clients and always try to maintain open communication. We are in this transaction together with the same goal - to get your home sold.
Beautiful Photos, Aerial Photography and Home VIdeo Tours
Professional quality photographs, aerial photography and video are now a MUST when marketing your home to potential Buyers on the internuet. I offer all of this! When you list your home with me, air shots, video and HD video tours, when appropriate, as part of my typical marketing campaign - it is, I believe, a necessary ingredient for properly presenting a home - my seller clients all agree - and buyers have told me time and time again that without ample numbers of photos and a premium display, they feel that the seller and listing agent are hiding something. My photos take time and effort, but the payback for my clients makes it well worth it. Additionally, your home will have its own property website, featuring all of the special details of your home, and displaying the high quality photos!
My camera investment is not cheap! Included in my camera arsenal is a Phantom 4 Pro drone by DJI, a professional Canon C100 cinema camera, a Nikon D7100 DSLR, plus high end lenses! I am on a Mac computer, set up appropriately for editing photos and video with professional software. I promise that you will not get grainy, dark cell phone images when you list with me!
Presentation and marketing is EVERYTHING in real estate!
Gorgeous Print Brochures
In tandem with the beautiful photos and air shots, a high quality brochure will be created for your property, and made available with a nice, quality brochure box that attaches to your yard sign. Not a slapped together, printed piece of paper that curls in humidity and becomes unreadable, but a presentation that will WOW a potential Buyer, with professional quality design, professionally printed, on high quality coated cardstock. I take pride in presenting my listings! You will LOVE my brochure layout, you will love the quality and presentation! GUARANTEED!
Advertising on Major Real Estate Websites
When you list your home with me, your property will be advertised on various national real estate sites. I have my listings syndicated to the high traffic national websites that potential buyers use to find homes. Additionally, I subscribe and pay for special listing services through Realtor.com that showcases your home with upto 25 photos, custom write-ups, among other features to get your home noticed! I subscribe and pay for special listing services through homesdatabase.com that tracks the listings and potential buyers! I have purchased special accounts on Trulia, Zillow and Homes.com to further showcase your home's listing. Other syndication includes military.com, frontdoor.com, and tons of other sites! I utilize these services to increase exposure of my clients' homes to potential buyers.
Consistent On-Line Advertising
I have a routine that I try to keep every day...some people exercise first thing in the morning, I advertise. Some people exercise before they go to bed, I advertise. I advertise on well-known, high traffic websites for mass exposure and some not-so-well known sites that target specialized buyers. I advertise my listings consistently, in Southern Maryland areas and beyond! With a background in statistics and economics, I understand the market and where to maximize exposure to segments of potential buyers for your unique property, whether it is a starter-home, waterfront property, horse property, farm, commercial opportunity, etc. I utilize on-line advertising to increase exposure of my clients' homes to potential buyers.
When you list with me, your home will be featured on various pages of my website and will be included in blogs, as well as distribution to hundreds of potential buyers through email. Additionally, direct mail, other print advertising and exposure through participation in events like the Bay Country Boat Show are utilized to increase exposure of my clients' homes to potential buyers. Plus, search google for Southern Maryland Homes for Sale and other searches like Saint Mary's County Walterfront, Horse Properties in Southern Maryland, etc. - I have great 1st page rankings for my website and my listings...and speaking of rankings, browse throught the thousands of agents who build their business through the same web service as I use (http://homes.point2.com) and see where I rank in the State of Maryland! My placement has been consistently in the #1 position for marketing for the past 4+ years.
Seller Access to Information
A great feature that is available to my seller clients is access to their listing through my website. This access allows you to view hit statistics, sources of hits and to add additional information concerning whether a potential buyer used a mortgage calculator, viewed a map or downloaded a listing brochure about your home. This is a unique feature that allows a combined effort between seller and Realtor to present a home in the best light possible and offers unique information concerning how well your home is being marketed.
Feedback & Showing Response
Through use of another computer automated service, showings and feedback response are entered, logged and maintained. The system tracks buyers' agents that show your property and sends email requests to these agent to respond to a quick, but thorough, survey of their client's opinion of your property. The survey touches on price, condition and if the potential buyer is interested in the property, or the reason that they are not interested. This is a very useful tool.
