This ad is one in the series of ads from my "FRESH" Ad Campaign...designed by yours truly. I run a new ad, with a different set of feet and a new catch phrase each month in the real estate mags with our listings. When developing the "FRESH" ad campaign, I figured, on average, I have about .03 milliseconds to get people's attention, so I wanted to do something different...maybe even borderline 'weird' to accomplish that. And it is WORKING! The ads have been running for about a year, and I get loads of fun feedback regarding the whimsy of this out-of-the-box real estate advertising. It has truly been a HOOT! It is important to distinguish (4 comments)
Here is an example of the "Fridge Friendly" ad campaign that I run along side the "FRESH" ad campaign. I have collected quotes for years and I love sharing them with friends and family. I decided to branch out and share my collected quotes with my sphere about 2 years ago. I use Plaxo to upload the images I build in Microsoft Publisher and I send these out as a digital postcard once a month. I have also designed them as print postcards that go out to my mailing list once a quarter. The idea behind this advertising is that I want to (1 comments)

Here is a little primer about PMI Insurance from your friends at Live Good Be Happy;Generally, if your down payment is less than 20% of the price of the home, you will be required to purchase Private Mortgage Insurance (called PMI or sometimes MI).

The Good Ol' Days... - 09/06/07 12:30 PM
Remember when your Grandfather would say, "Back when I was young..." and go on to tell you a story that shed light on how much things had eroded since he was a kid? Well, here is my stab at it. I am not a Grandparent (far from it), and this "Back when I was young" story is from only about 10 years ago. I have not yet earned 'wisdom', but this is so glaring to me that I feel I must share. Here it goes;When I started selling real estate a little over a decade ago, if you were a 'low (0 comments)
