Funny Real Estate Video Creates Quite A Stir

Real Estate Agent with Joe Manausa Real Estate 8508880888

In case you didn’t see the new real estate video that we produced yesterday, I’ve decided to re-post it for all to see. We have received phone calls, emails, blog comments, and text messages that say we definitely touched a nerve (on the funny bone?). So, if you have not yet seen this funny video, here it is again:

Real Estate Video Touches A Nerve

Based upon the high volume of feedback that we received, it is obvious to me that we have touched on a nerve with many people.

The two most frequent points of discussion that are raised after somebody views this real estate video either involved the fact that the video reminded somebody of an agent that they know, or the fact that the video reminds us that so many agents are not in tune with the changes that our now driving the way that we should be working.

Marketing in any industry requires a company to vigilantly monitor the techniques and processes that its consumers are using to purchase the goods and services of that industry. As is the case with many industries, real estate has seen our buyers move online. No longer can we secure them by running picture ads in newspapers and magazines, we have to go where they are. And they are on the internet!

In order to share some of the comments that we received about our new real estate video from across all of our different distribution points, I have included a few below.

As a stager, I have met agents just like this! It strikes me as more sad than funny, honestly. I’m always amazed how many sellers I meet who hire “the top agent(s)” just because they do a lot of newspaper/postcard advertising! The more $$ you spend, the better an agent you are? From personal experience, I don’t think so!

Nicholas Caron, a professional REALTOR wrote:

That video is awesome.  I recently did business with an agent who touts themselves as the number one agent in their area.   It was one of the toughest deals to work with.  I literally had to leave the room while watching that video.

Christine Donovan, a real estate attorney wrote:

Oh this is too funny. And, unfortunately too many may not understand how important this is.

So, even with professionals chiming in, it is obvious that there is some truth to the funny real estate video. So, give it a go, give it a “thumbs up” on youtube if you like it, and send it to your friends and colleagues and see if we can make it go viral! Thank you for all of the comments and support.

Joe, Thank you for reposting. Almost missed it. Funny but true. Many home buyers and sellers do say their agent didn't listen. I am sharing.

Very funny! Scary, but funny.

It sounds a lot like the spoof video of the I-Phone 4. Both pretty hilarious!

That one won't lose it's luster any time soon Joe.  Some just aren't going to get it, as previously stated.

Thank you Kevin. I bet you're right. 10 years from now NAR will do a survey ... 60% hire their first interview.

Technologically, NAR warns many have not kept up with the curve. Video is huge in using more than the eyeballs to promote your property, area, brand. Don't just do show and tell.

I am new to ActiveRain and found your video this morning. They say the best comedy always has a bit of truth involved. I think that's what makes this so funny.
