YouTube Thursdays - The Right Niche is like having a Superpower

Real Estate Broker/Owner with ViewHomes of Clark County - Nature As Neighbors

YouTube Thursdays - Staying True to You is like Having a Superpower



Our good friends, Ron and Alexandra Seigel, help people find their niche in the luxury real estate market. We often think the right niche is akin to having a super power, as it's nearly impossible for others to duplicate.

Recently, while on a vacation to visit family in Juneau, Alaska, we realized, once again, how lucky we are to live our passion, "Nature As Neighbors." Even when we're away from home, our hearts and energy follow the same path. 


Spending time immersed in the beauty of nature with people you love is an extraordinary gift. We were on a natural high from the minute we landed. Glaciers, mountains, and wildlife surrounded us - and the weather was exceptional. 


Today, we are back in front of our computers, refreshed and ready to help people find, or sell, homes where people thrive. The birds are singing, evergreen branches are swaying, and colorful spring shrubs and flowers are spreading their cheer. It's good to know our connection to nature doesn't end when a vacation is over.  


Many of our clients appreciate the same things we do. Therefore, we'll be sharing a few video moments from our trip with them. It's always fun to spread the magic of Alaska with others. 




( Note: We didn't have our gimbal with us so please excuse a bit of motion, the boat was rocking and it was tough to hold the cell phone still...) 


We hope you too are able to live your niche, at home or wherever your travels take you. And, when you return home, remember a few short video captures can be a great way to reconnect with your clients. It's pretty much like having a superpower. 



Much like Anita Clark 's Facebook Fridays, we encourage you to subscribe to each other's YouTube Channels - and take a minute to "like" or leave a comment. You can also add your own YouTube Channel in the comments below, and ask for subscribers. Be sure to subscribe back though - it's quid pro quo!

ViewHomes™ grew out of our passion for nature, beautiful surroundings, and peaceful environments. Starting together in an urban environment, over the years we've gravitated towards areas with smaller populations and less density. We now enjoy our lifestyle in a rural environment, but with close proximity to metropolitan areas where we appreciate all the amenities of fine restaurants, shopping, and an easy drive to an international airport.
Living in ViewHomes™ is like having “elbowroom for the soul”.

How exciting that you were able to visit Alaska, and provide a peek into what you experienced. That must have been quite the trip!

Hi Debb,
So glad you and Bernie got away to Alaska to visit family and enjoy a whole 'nother world of nature. Loved the video! 

And, I agree... a niche does give you a superpower over the competition.  I believe it actually makes business easier because you are focused on one specific area and not trying to be all things to whoever comes along.

Good morning Debb, time spent with family and Nature in Alaska sounds heavenly. It without a doubt goes with your niche. I love your video of the sea lion, it looks like he was posing just for you.

Good morning Debb. This is wonderful and I share your passion about being in nature. When I was actively listing and selling I started as an investment person. I started that way myself. Things have now changed. Great videos.

I love this - "The right Niche is like having a Superpower", when you dig deep into a niche market that you love, then you are no longer working, but following your passions, and when you follow your passion you attract the type of people/clients you want to surround yourself with.

Hi Debb and Bernie- if anyone is true to their niche it's you!  I loved the videos and yes, when you can find the right niche and remain true to it, you have something that cannot be duplicated.

Connection with Nature is so important. Sharing that connection with others is quite a niche in its own right. Thanks for sharing and being a great inspiration!

Stephen Turner It is, thanks for the visit and I did go to your YouTube Channel.  D

Hi Cheryl Ritchie - a gimbal is a stablizing device used with cell phones. They really do help with a lot more than that too...

And, it's important that the right niche doesn't end up being just a place to bury your ashes!
