In Dallas, it's the REALTORS® who just want to have some fun!

By
Industry Observer

Recently, one of the REALTORS® who works in my office decided that members of the real estate community in our the Oak Lawn area of Dallas needed to cheer on and celebrate the beginning of the spring selling season... and so was born, REALTOR® Flash Mob.  Even though I was born with 2 left feet, as his office manager, I thought this was a great way for everyone to have some fun and do something different in an area of Dallas known for being ecclectic and diverse.

When I asked why he wanted to organize a flash mob in the local Kroger supermarket, he said he thought it would help build public awareness of our improving market... well it did that, members of the public actually joined in dancing with the REALTORS® and shoppers throughout the store came to the front to see what all the commotion was about!

Take a look at see for yourself: 

Sure looks to me like selling a home with one of these agents would be a lot of fun!

Hi Jane... no, believe me, I am not that good of a dancer.  I was actually not in the video, I was recovering from a (minor) fall injury, so just walking was a bit tough!  :-)

What a clever and fun way to get the word out there.  It would be interesting to find out how many leads were born during the "flash".

What a lot of fun, Steve!  You did pick an easier song than Handel's Messiah!  I would say you made quite a positive impact.  Perhaps you could take turns performing at each other's open houses?  ^_~
