The Little Green Phone Book | Powerful Local Marketing Source

Managing Real Estate Broker with RE/MAX Executive Realty 104763

Marketing is the name of the real estate game we play every day, for those who are “listing agents.” My job description within The Buliung Todaro Team is to market for fresh inventory; market the existing inventory; and market the agents within the team.

Every agent has his/her favorite methods of marketing. Mine are both online and offline marketing. One complements the other. 

I’m “old school” with 38 years of listing new homes, resale homes and land. Print marketing is my source of choice, and I write blog posts that reflect my print marketing.

One of my favorite sources happens to be Little Green Phone Book, Northeastern Publishing, Inc.The Little Green Book I’ve been marketing in that source since its inception. I have my hooks deeply embedded in the first right inside page and now the back right inside cover in color.

I thought I’d share the two ads that will be present in the 2017 Green Book for the Town of Franklin. One of the ads will also run on the front page of the Local Town Pages newspaper. Of course, by the end of the day tomorrow, they’ll easily be found online on ActiveRain, Google+,, Th

The manner in which a real estate agent markets him/herself is a strong indication of the quality you’ll find when your home is being marketed by that agent. I spare no cost and can be found online and offline, just as our inventory can be found.

For those of you who are in business, The Little Green Book is a fabulous marketing source. It directs new business to us every year. You may want to consider it, and call Charlie Russo to see what he has to offer. He’s a good businessman, and he’s been a pleasure for me to work with for the past 20+ years.

Tried and true marketing efforts still work, even if they are not the newest and greatest trends. Occasionally my brokerage will do local radio ads to re-acquaint with people listening. They do grab attention!
