Relocation Clients are my Passion

Real Estate Broker/Owner with House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373 DRE# ER40011786

 

I obtained by CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) designation around 18 years ago, and have completely enjoyed working with Buyers coming into Denver, and also those Sellers that SADLY are transferred out of Denver.     Each year I am blessed to have a few!

 

Over the years, I have done outdoorsy videos of attractions that the residents seem to enjoy, and have had Buyers contact me and want to live near those attractions.  A big one is Aurora Reservoir, where you have lots of water activities, a sand beach, picnicing, but also 8 miles of trails to bike or run.    Denver is very outdoorsy, and lots to do with our many days of sunshine!  (sure looks like I need to update it now...)

 

 

 

Having a need to nurture, I love working with Relocation buyers from out of state, out of the Country, or even out of the City.    Usually a relocation buyer knows somewhat where they want to live within the City, or what they want nearby to get a good start.    Showing them around the area, what it has to offer as far as shopping, entertainment and schools is a must.   They need to know the "lay of the land" and the proximity to a neighborhood.    Maybe they want to be close to the foothills and have an easy drive for camping, skiing, hiking and fishing.   When they originally call, there are LOTS of questions to ask.

 

With my experience, I know what posts to write to attract out of state buyers, and when they hit my web site it tells me where they located my posts.    I have included not only interesting neighborhoods, but anything nearby that would be of interest to buyers - like reservoirs, dog parks, race track, outdoor cafes, etc.    Even introducing some new businesses that may be of interest.

 

 

Because Relocation Buyers have a short period of time in town, you have to be quite organized and have everything set up and ready to go once they land in town.    Have a relocation packet ready including a map of the City.   I know, there is GPS, but sometimes a buyer likes to see the map and follow along when touring the city, so they KNOW where they are at.   I have delivered a fruit bowl to their room, so they have something to take with on our trip, and have PLENTY of water in the car just to keep altitude sickness at bay.    I have a list of things in their packet that pertains JUST to Denver.    Not only the need to drink a lot of water, but what our current laws are for child seats, texting and driving, turning right on red, and definitely the cameras that catch you turning without stopping!   Also, explain the process of buying a home in Denver.    There are caveats here that don't apply elsewhere, and don't want any surprises along the process.  (inspection issues, appraisal and how it works, and funding)

 

I have a tab on my web site with information for buyers and always direct them to this tab when they are thinking of relocating to the Denver metro area.   

 

 

 

I currently am working with a buyer from Arizona, and they will be here in a couple of weeks, and another buyer looking for a 2nd home in downtown Denver from Grand Junction.

Great post, got some ideas again for some new updated videos of places and things I do all the time which would be of interest to out of town buyers and visitors who may end up wanting to live here as well.

Good morning Joan - you have everything that a relocating buyer would need to know.  It has to be a blessing to know they have someone who can help them know what is going in so that they can make informed choices on locations.

Hi Joan, I am also in an area with heavy relocation buyers. It is so much fun to show others why I chose my little section of the beach :)

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 I have learned some more tips for videos, so should redo that Aurora Reservoir one, but think I will wait until we have green grass and leaves again.

That is a great video, Joan. Hey, I gotta tell you when I was at the Apple store in Honolulu last week, they demonstrated a handheld video gadget that attaches to your iPhone and keeps the video absolutely steady! How cool is that? You might want to check it out and kick your videos up a notch.

Of course, I am impressed that you're doing videos. I would like to but just can't muster it.
