There's More Than One Way to Advertise

Real Estate Agent with Value Added Service, 602-620-2699 SA5376460000

A good friend of mine is leaving our desert sunshine state of Arizona and relocating to North Carolina.  Sorry Rainers, but she is an agent and a new agent in North Carolina.  Technically not a new agent as she's a Broker here in Arizona.  So sorry to see her go but know she'll make a difference as she returns to her roots in North Carolina.  I know this because she's a GREEN® designee as well. 


She and I worked on greening our Arizona Regional MLS together in 2009 and were a great team!  Her persistence and tenanicity will be missed as well as our monthly coffee meetings.  We were also volunteers with the US Green Building Council, which is how we met in 2009.  Fond memories of speaking green with a fellow passionate agent. 


She is also married to her longtime sweetie, to whom I'm privileged to know and like.  He is the RE/MAX Balloon Captain here in Phoenix.  And  no, I haven't gotten to ride in that balloon as that's against the rules - darn it!  


But the cool thing is I get to help store the balloon and trailer while they close on their home and either donate to Goodwill, or sell their things.  Her comment, "It's amazing what you can accumulate in a house during 18 years."  


Lucky me, I get to help out and at the same time gain some advertising in my neighborhood.  Since I've only lived in this home a year not everyone knows I'm in real estate.   The back of my car is wrapped but when the garage door goes down, so does the advertising.  But not now!  There's More Than One Way to Advertise!

It will certainly be eye catching and I imagine you will have a number of requests for a balloon ride if they ask what is in the trailer.

Could be Susan Haughton .  I'm sure my neighbors directly around me will ask what I'm up to! Have a great Sunday!

Now that is a great way for your new neighbors to get to know all about what you do!  Love it.  And think of it this you can go visit them in NC:)

Yup - you bet Olga Simoncelli . Whatever means we can find, right?! 

Anna Banana Kruchten  sometimes things fall into your lap :)  Yes and I'd love to visit them.  They have been wonderful peeps to hang out with.  Her husband is going to park in my spare bedroom between balloon flights around Arizona, so that balloon trailer will come and go until he's finished flying for the year.

Jan, That is a great way to advertise.  I'd prefer a trailer versus on my car.  I do prefer to just be me sometimes and not always be in real estate.

Yes it is Kathleen Daniels !  I have the back of my car wrapped, just the glass and it works great and inexpensive.  But I know how you feel about wanting to be just yourself.    Have a great week!
