National Association of Realtor Statistics show that 59% of buyers are working with Brokers. Our experience backs this number up.
Broker-to-Broker marketing begins before you even meet us. We work with Island and Out of Area Brokers every day; marketing current listings, showing other Broker's listings to our Buyers; seeing Brokers at their Open Houses and at the Open Houses we hold; taking calls, answering and asking questions; every day we build stronger and stronger relationships with the very people who will be showing your home to their clients. Relationships are the key to Successful Marketing, particularly in our close knit, unique Community.
The Brokers Tour:
Every Thursday, from 10:00 to Noon, or as late as 1:00 - depending on how many homes are on tour - successful agents on the island and from surrounding areas visit new listings to the market; ask listing brokers questions; explore the home & property and familiarize themselves with the inventory.
We collect business cards during the tour; e mail the brokers that visited your home thanking them for making the effort and including a link to an informative electronic flyer that they can forward to their clients
We also e mail the brokers that missed the tour, or had their own listings open, the electronic flyer.
We often hold a home open a second time if tour was particularly busy or we experience inclement weather.
We are full service, full time real estate brokers with a combined 40+ years in the business. As you have learned, our marketing campaign is dynamic and aggressive. We are expert negotiators and transaction managers.
We are always available to our clients, buyer and sellers, to answer questions about our unique real estate market.
Preparing your home for the market is a daunting task. We are well aware of the stress that comes with seeing to every detail and we do our very best to assist you as "partners" in this endeavor. We have developed an extensive data base of vendors who can address every detail on your pre-inspection; help you stage your home; clean, paint and organize. We are there for you every step of the way and act as a concierge service once your home is on the market.
Once your home is ready for the market, we photograph your property in its very best light. We take dozens of photos that are used for internet and print advertising using the very best technology available.
We will do our best to make this process as easy for you as possible. We will arrange showings to meet your needs and if you leave town, we will monitor your home for you.
