Kentucky Land For Sale - 07/31/09 08:06 AM
Here is a 200 acre tract that would make a superb Thoroughbred opertaion. Neighboring world class farms such as Pin Oak Stud, Gainsborough, and Ashford. The location is outstanding. Check out the Virtual Tour in HI-Def. There is no question from our initial reactions to these tours, it saves alot of drive time when you are able to preview land with such clarity online.

Lexngton Ky Horse Farm - Lexington Kentucky Farms For Sale - 07/29/09 10:36 AM
I spent a good part of yesterday speaking with a leading rental agent in central Kentucky talking about the 2010 World Equestrian Games. And the question I had was, Is the anticipation of renting homes for $1500 a day and farms for even more overblown??. My experience tells me yes. I think when all is said and done, the event will be great but the people banking on a windfall will be diappointed. One thing for sure, being properly positioned be it for property sales or property rentals will be your best chance. (0 comments)

In response to the tremendous success of our first project in Lexington, Lexingtonkycondosandlofts.com, we have decided to rebrand this site as YourLexCondo.com and add a sister site YourLexRental.com. Same successful format, one click and in Hi-Def you are searching for properties from your PC or laptop, not burning petrol. Look for a new logos, new branding, and new site in about 30 days.

Lexington Ky Real Estate Listing - 07/27/09 10:43 PM
Took 3 more farm virtual tours that will be posted later this week. I tried a really bizare special effect that worked amaizingly well. It basically involved a deck around an observation tower. I went to all 4 corners of the deck and shot 3 photos aprox 90 degressof each corner then stitched it together. I couldnt believe how well it blended, maybe it was luck but it was cool anyway. Ill post a link here and it will be featured on Bluegrass Trophy Properties (0 comments)
Horse Farms For Sale Craigslist - 07/26/09 07:51 PM
Had several conversations today about Craigslist. How do they monitize it. They have an incredible number of eyeballs and could capitalize on it in a big way. Its such a peculiar approach to make you continually repost the same information over and over. Can you imagine thwe value they would bring if they had some very general demographics. Is there a demographic looking for nice horse farms? I dont know. We will include it in our ongoing strategy because of my personal experience and hard evidence. Bluegrass Trophy Properties
Lexington Ky Real Estate Craigslist - 07/26/09 05:35 AM
Ive got some current statistics that would make your average Realtor ..it! One of the most important features of a Virtual Tour is the ability to track not only views but the url source of the views. I recently sold my house and yes I used a Realtor but what I showed him should be noted. The consumer is making a very strong statement of how that want their Real Estate presenteed tio them. I posted my property every view days and sold it from a craigslist lead quickly and heres the scoop, I had 1000% more views on Craigslist than (0 comments)
Via Lizette Fitzpatrick - Broker-Realtor® Lizette.US - Kentucky Residential Homes (Lizette Realty - Lexington KY - Richmond KY): Lexington KY - Horse Farms For Sale In Lexington - Kentucky Horse Farm Absolutely nothing like a Kentucky horse farm in Lexington KY. There are still a few nice horse farms for sale in and surrounding Lexington. I count myself as one of the lucky real estate brokers that get to drive around through the lush horse farms lined by black plank and stone fences when I am out showing property. All of my life has been centered around horses, so I can understand why many buyers (0 comments)
Kentucky Real Estate Kentucky Homes For Sale - 07/26/09 05:03 AM
One of the biggest problems with the MLS system is the inconsistency of the presentation. I have watched as the Internet has significantly changed the way properties are bought and sold. 10 years ago probably 30% of listings had photos.The other listings were in essence non existant. People dont click on listings without photos. Our goal with Bluegrass Trophy Properties is consistent presentation. As we add listings we hope to show each one in Hi-Def Bluegrass Trophy Properties (0 comments)

We have held several focus groups in the past to help determine what the best experience for the consumer is on a Real Estate web site. Without question one of the primary components was the property search. the SPEED of the search and the efficiency of the returns. Our proprietary application LISTINGACE hands down is the best availabe. I have not shown it to one person in Lexington that hasnt gone WOW! Try it out on

Horse Farms of Kentucky Bluegrass Region - Adena Springs - 07/24/09 07:28 PM
Got a chance to take a Virtual Tour for the Adena Springs Web Site. Finally got a clear day and the shoot went well. A highlight for me was filming the stallion barn as Ghostzapper napped. He was one incredible racehorse, easily the best of his decade. Taking Hi-Def Virtual Tours of locations like this are a pure pleasure. Will post later Bluegrass Trophy Properties
Kentucky Horse Farms - Land For Sale - Equestrian Real Estate - 07/23/09 06:30 AM
Agent Sites: I had a chance to update Cathy Davis's site kyhorseproperty.com . To be honest I had never looked at one of these agent templates before and I was pretty impressed with the capability, but for 95% of agents I dont think they have the ability to take advantage of the capability and the support for these sites must be marginal. The SEO was non existent which made the site worthless. and a piece of advice to agents. Whats the #1 you tell homeowners who are selling "CUT THE CLUTTER", well do the same with your Web site.

Several more tours today. People have been more than pleased with ListingAce. It seems as if the search is the #1 component that the consumer looks for. As soon as I get google analytics installed we will see what kind of marketshare we get and how fast.

Had the pleasure of spending the day with Cathy Davis of Riddell Realty. "The farm girl" as she is known, I was blown away with her knowledge and expertise in horse farm sales in the area. She listed Classic Farm on my first listing presentaion as the "tech guru" and I will post the virtual tour soon. It is truly qualifies as a Bluegrass Trophy Property

WEG World Equestrian games 2010 Lexington, Kentucky - 07/14/09 05:16 AM
One of the reasons we are working so hard to get Bluegrass Trophy Properties drilled in so quickly is because of the 2010 World Equestrian games in Lexington Ky to be held next year. With up to 600,000 visitors expected to visit the bluegrass region, there will be plenty of people looking at our Real Estate market. We will have without question, the most user friendly and visuly compelling site in our market. Our condo site has had significant interest with its Hi-Def Virtual Tours. (0 comments)

Got an amaizing lesson by the king of "Pocket Listings" today. Joe Riddell took me on a tour of the bluegrass region showing me his vast knowledge of each individual farm and landowner in the area. Looking forward to taking taking some virtual tours tomorrow and beginning work on FarmView360. A password protected website where we will display info on exclusive properties not listed for sale.

With the launch of Bluegrass Trophy Proerties, I get a chance to fulfill a couple of goals. I not only get to work around the horse business which has been a long time passion of mine, I will get a chance to capture thru HD photography and Video, the beauty of this region and represent it on the Internet in a fashion I havent seen locally. I start shooting tours beginning tomorrow, I can't wait! (0 comments)
