unique marketing: Glowing letter of recommendation - 09/21/11 12:08 PM
When someone writes you a glowing letter of reccomendation it just makes your day. I was blown away by the glowing accolades and praise in this letter. I could not have paid Jerry to do better PR for me. What made it all the more special is that it came from someone in my niche: a senior couple who needed a wheel chair accessible home.
The money that I make selling real estate is nice but it is really this that I work for.
unique marketing: Finding an Accessible Home: It's a Partnership - 11/15/10 12:04 PM
I am a disability housing specialist and the plain facts are it is HARD to find accessible homes or ones that are built with Universal Design elements in mind. They are out there but they are few and far between. It's like finding a needle in a hay stack. Accessibility is not the same to everyone. Another factor that makes it challenging is that one person's need and understanding of accessibility is not the same as someone else's. The key is listening to your clients needs and they working with them so they know things that come up in the search may or may (6 comments)
unique marketing: Google maps can help market your listing - 08/14/10 02:17 PM
I just set up a Google map for my new accessible ranch listing. This is a good idea for any listing because you can show the proximity to important things like the closest shopping center, grocery store, park, hospital, ect. Not many other Realtors do it so it's another tool in "your" bag of tricks that distinguishes you from the pack! It also shows you are an expert in your area or neighborhood. View Universally designed ranch home for sale in a larger map I believe it also can drive up ranking of your website too.

unique marketing: Anniversary of the ADA & my own "Proclamation" - 07/26/10 02:31 PM
Today is the 20 yr anniversary of the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act). People all over the country today are celebrating one of the pivotal moments of the Civil/Disability Rights Movement. 20 years ago the Americans With Disabilities Act became law, opening many doors for the nation's largest minority group. I posted this on my Facebook account and an interpreter friend of mine who's sister uses a wheel chair, commented that not many people even know what the law is and that it impacts the LARGEST minority in our country. This maybe true but I want to stay focused on the (2 comments)
