I Heard You on the Radio

Real Estate Agent with Tallapoosa, Bremen, Waco, Buchanan, Temple, Carrollton Licensed in GA & AL

I heard you on the radio.

Years ago, before I became an agent, I worked at a small gospel radio station, running the board, playing music, making commercials, etc.   So I knew my way around small town radio, back in the old days.

Recently, another local station owner listed land he owns with me, and suggested that we make an ad to run on his different radio stations.  The 30 second ad turned out great, and all over town, people are stopping me, saying "I heard you on the radio".

I have not had anyone ask about buying the property, but it is nice to have the minor celebrity of being on local radio.   The listing may be hard to sell, since few people want to turn over cash but, it is a 10.24 acre tract, located on an easement in Rome, GA.  It is priced at $22,500 and would make a great little spot for hunting, camping, riding 4-wheelers, or shooting targets.

Even if the land does not sell due to the radio ad, I think the exposure will be good for my real estate business.  Everyone will remember when they heard me on the radio.

Karen, radio advertisments use to be very successful in my area.  Since the market turned, radio ads have declined tremendously.  Nonetheless, it is great to see that the ads still work even when the market is down.

I like to tell people I used to have a radio show on KDUM, where even the biggest stars aren't very bright!

Lisa - If I were paying for the radio ads, I don't think I could afford it for a possible $20,500 sale.  I find that land only is especially hard to sell since so much cash has to be used to complete the sale, and there is not much return except for personal enjoyment.


Sam - Funny...I always like to say I have a face for radio, and a voice for mime
