Gold Star Blogger - Nyssa Smith

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Advantage Realty

Time to give out a gold star. Nyssa Smith is a real estate agent in State College, PA.

What you are going to appreciate about Nyssa is that she is really leveraging video in her online presence. Nyssa for a few years now has learned how to bring video into her real estate presentation. She steps in front of the camera and introduces her topic of the day. Then the video changes over to a nice presentation of clips of the neighborhood or house that she is showcasing. By stepping in front of the camera we feel like we really get to know her even before we have really met her!

The video below is one of Nyssa's "Tuesday Tours"

Earlier today, Nyssa was featured on Jonathan Rivera's (aka Real-TechGuy) weekly internet radio show. (Jonathan also is creator of Real Estate Referral Group on Facebook, I suggest you check out and "like" that page also). On the radio show, Jonathan interviewed Nyssa about her use of video and the success that she has had with it. She also gives important tips for those who would like to learn from her years of experience in video marketing for real estate. You can playback the interview in the audio embed here:

If you want to download the MP3 file for offline listening in your portable media player, you can get the download from Jonathan's episode page on Blog Talk Radio. Be sure and check out Nyssa's ActiveRain blog page and also her YouTube channel.

Well done Nyssa, Gold Star well deserved!

Congrats on your gold star, Nyssa! I gave you a shoutout too on my blog post yesterday, or now it's day before yesterday technically. You helped to inspire me to do my first video! Thank you!

I love your hair in the profile picture. Is that a new hairdo or have you grown it out since? I love both the style and the highlights.

Hey Lynda!  Thanks for stopping on by!  And yes, I got a new 'do! I just got my hair all chopped off! ;)  So this is my most recent photo.  I love mixing things up and trying a new look. And YES, I got it all on video... so I'll be putting that together and posting it up! :D Donated almost 12" to Locks of Love.

Thanks for the shoutout in your blog!  I'll go check it out now!

"I listen for a living." It's all about you.

This is well deserved Nyssa, and maybe a bit overdue.  You have been providing great content for as long as I have known you.  Your content comes from your deep knowledge and insight into your area.  It is fun to watch you grow.  Congratulations and continuing success to my Pennsylvania friend.

Nyssa - you are setting a standard here for videos.  Sigh... I guess I better start learning.  BTW - your profile rocks!
