Hampstead NH Prudential Verani Real Estate and the power of the Internet

Real Estate Agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Verani Realty

Jay and I are pretty excited about the fact that the company we work for, Prudential Verani Realty recognizes the power of the Internet. While the company is not totally into web 2.0 yet it is taking some big steps in that direction. They’ve announced some cool changes that will make our job much easier…I’m lovin these changes.

One of the most important changes taking place is regarding the distribution of our listings to various real estate websites. One of the latest surveys indicates that a whooping 88% ( I really think higher) of potential home-buyers start their search on the web.

Not news to us, as Jay and I have known this for long time, which is why a year ago we started blogging and stepped up our efforts to increase our Internet presence.

At that time we were the ONLY real estate agents blogging in our market place and in our company. In fact there was only one other active real estate blogger in the entire state of New Hampshire, Ann Cummings, and she is from Portsmouth.

The three of us NH Bloggers learned the ropes together, by trial and error. I affectionately call Ann a Blogging diva...she saw the changes and started blogging well before any agents in her market even understood what the word blog meant.

Now a year later there are probably a handful  or two  ACTIVE real estate bloggers in New Hampshire and maybe a couple of hundred who have blog profile pages but have never once blogged. Their loss! Or yours if one of them is your agent.

So Wooo Hooo check out these additions… 2008 is gonna be a wild real estate ride…is your agent ready? Are they competing with the Internet or partnering with it? That’s an important question to ask.

Check out these very cool additions…some of our new and existing sites that receive feeds of our listings.

These marketing efforts will truly enhance our efforts...so if you’re thinking of buying or selling….blah blah blah…you know the drill call us.

Remember we wake up unemployed every morning so we really appreciate your business and referrals.

That's awesome, Monika.  I find it hard to believe that some companies are not utilizing the Internet these days.  How do they do it?

Beats me...but many are just now seeing the power of it and realizing it's not just some fad. Jay and I used input a lot of own listings to these sites but now my company will do it automatically.

Moni - That's one of the reasons I like Prudential! I'm glad your office sees the potential...I don't know how in the world other companies survive without the Internet.

Monika, making sure that you come up on the first page when a Buyer does a web search is very important.  The web is where they seem to go first, and anyone who is not taking advantage of the web is missing the boat, and so will any Seller that is being represented by them.

Hey Monika - thank you for that mention!  We have learned a lot together, haven't we?  And just think it was just a short year or so ago and we knew very little about this stuff.  It's been a fun ride so far, and I suspect there's even more in store for us for next year and beyond!!

I do it, I do it!!! (And I must admit I just LOVE seeing my face plastered all over the Merrimack County towns cause no one else is putting in the time...love it)

I put my own stuff on many of those sites myself! I haven't been real good on my second blog though....

I'll get there!

Moni, I am glad to say that I am a part of this company because you and Jay talked and talked about the importance of the web and Verani's presence there and willingness to go further. Thanks

That is great.  I do that myself (to most of those) through my point 2 site...  IT takes time to put the listings in the  site but once they are there it is easy to syndicate.  You guys have had a point 2 site right?  (I think I read that before)  It is nice though that now your company is doing it!  Must be nice.....

I have to get on the ball though because I have missed out on WMUR and NHclicks!!!!

Hi Monika,

This is exciting news!  I'm from Prudential Nevada Realty (Reno, NV), and we are experiencing positive response from Yahoo!  Blogging is still a new concept in our office though.  Some of the agents are member but not actively blogging.  They are missing out.

Looks like your company is very forward thinking and it should be great in '08!  I have enjoyed learning and experimenting with blogging.  I am often surprised by people who have told me they know me through my blog -- have read my blog -- but have never commented!  There is a lot of potential out there.  It does take time and practice, but this is certainly the wave of the future!  "blah blah blah"  I think I started something!

Monika, I think you and Ann will always be the New Hampshire Divas of blogging! I am envious that your company is feeding your listings to those sites. I do them by hand, but the results are there. It still amazes me when I get calls from all across the country!  I would have had to advertise in newspapers all across the country for the same results!
