As many of you know, I am working towards my broker license (should be ready for the test this month!) and as part of my growth and learning I have been working with great broker to learn the trade. One of the more important areas of instruction has been in marketing homes and the brokerage.
Today we set up a table at the Costa Mesa Branch of US Bank. About a month ago my mentor made contact with their staff after noticing that a local clothing store had set up a table with a few shoes on display to help attract new customers.
We were scheduled in for the month of June and were just starting to talk about how we would like to set up our table when the US Bank rep let us know that we could set up for the month of May, just in time for selling season!
Keep in mind though that this was just last Thursday, which means that we had only a couple of days over the weekend to put the plan into motion and have it ready to set up today, Monday May 2nd. I don't know about anyone else, but it turns out that we have a lot of real estate related fun going on over the weekend in addition to getting some time with the family.
Well, we worked both days over the weekend to edit video, get the components together, print some property flyers and get together a few other decorative items to fill up the table. We finished out this morning by shooting a few more video clips to add to the video to help people remember who we are and how to find us and also a virtual tour for a great beachy bungalow that we just listed a couple days ago.
Our video is a little over 5 minutes repeats all day long. I really think the customers will notice it and get us and our properties some nice exposure, but after hearing our commercial for 8 hours a day all month long the employees may regret offering this to us! One thing I really like about the broker I'm working with is that she takes full advantage of the opportunities we find!!
We have some more trifold brochures that I'm dropping off in the morning that talk about my broker's fantastic success rate with short sales and her overall business approach.
For those of you looking to find a different way to get your community to stop and notice you, this may be a good way to do it. If you're in the Costa Mesa are be sure to stop by the branch on 17th and check out our display. Thank you US Bank!
