LIVE on VIDEO: A Hawaii Military Relocation Story Comes to Life

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Liberty Homes RS-#62825

Real Estate Industry professionals have continuously evolved with marketing techniques on the internet. We started with websites. Then Web 2.0 and blogs and a lot of other internet savvy tools. Now....we have live video that surely brings each event full face with real movement, real voices, real people and an account of what we are presenting to the public and the consumer.

Advertising in the newspaper is costly and doesn't give the consumer anything but....words. Advertising to me is not so much about how much the professional has sold or made. It's about WHAT THAT AGENT WILL DO FOR YOU! 

It's about listening to the client's wants, needs, desires and dreams. It's about going above and beyond to help those clients achieve their goals with selling their home. The home they've lived in for 20 or 30 years and where a lot of memories are invested. The emotions they will go through when parting ways. It's about going above and beyond to help those clients who are buying their home that they will create events and save many memories in for years to come.

The following video is my first ever video to document a little of my Hawaii Military Relocation clients who searched for an agent in Hawaii on the internet and NOT ONE agent would give Shelly the time of day because it was "too far ahead" (they were trying to be proactive). Shelly typed in a search term into Google and contacted me after reading a few of my stories. And that's just the beginning!

That was last November. They arrived on February 27th, 2008 and we were looking for property on the 28th, 29th and in contract by the 30th. We signed all loan and escrow docs yesterday, will fund by Thursday morning and record with the Bureau of Conveyances Friday morning.

The following articles I was inspired to write as they pertain to these specific clients:

 

Hawaii Military Relocation Story Testimonial (with my clients consent):

"I found Sally on the internet while my fiance was still deployed to Afghanistan. We were preparing for a military relocation to Hawaii........ Sally was amazing! She made our transition to the islands easy and painless. Not only did we find a great Realtor, we made a new friend!"

Shelly and Chris

Note:  Katrina Dangleman, Escrow Officer with Title Guaranty Escrow in Mililani informed me yesterday that she is moving to Caifornia. She has been part of the driving force of the meaning behind "teamwork" and for many years....an important part of Title Guaranty in Mililani, Hawaii. Aloha O'e Katrina!  (Also, all of you out there keep a lookout. Katrina is going to be taking her Real Estate License test out there)

I tried to watch the video but it froze before I got to meet your clients. From what I did see, it was very good. And judging from the picture of them smiling, I would say everything went well. Congratulations!

Sally.... the videos in all of these blogs reminds me of that chia pet...  just a little water and they sprout up all over the place.  I need to get more involved. I already have a few ideas though...

Seriously, you did a great job with the video.  I am sure that we will see more of these popping up all over the place....

Woo-Hoo: you inspired me with this post; I ordered one of those flipper video cameras!  I won't be putting my mug on it right away....but for other uses, I'll try.  AND, I'll be a grandmother next month--and I need it for baby vidoes.

Sally- You did great on this video! I love the humor you added to it, the fun and the education. I figured there is no end in sight once you got your hands on that little flip! It is like contagious. I just want to film everything now! I did one of my granddaughter making her first high pitched squeals as a test drive with the flip and the mixpo. I just did my first video testimonial of some short sale sellers. I am looking forward to much more video from you now! Catch the waves and surfers! :)
