One or two year's ago I resumed my participation in the Broker Tours in the cities where I have listings, and I have been very pleased ever since from each tour. It's an great way to stay updated on inventory in our service areas and to get a better feel of neighborhoods.
Today's Broker Tour was very efficient and quick - we all boarded the special tour bus and we were able to talk and hear news from a mortgage lender, a title company and from other realtors in the time between the actual tours of the homes.
Below are a few photos of the homes we visited in Tempe AZ - they are quick snaps of features that I thought were interesting - I would encourage you to click on the photos and the links and see the actual professional photos from the MLS, as published by the listing agents.
This is a custom 4-bedroom home in the Lakes subdivision in Central Tempe. At the home entrance a friendly pebble stone painting is waving welcome, and from then on, it is a lot of 'wow's, elegance and views.
Another home from the tour was a Bradley home, known for excellent quality block construction, and it featured a split floor plan and 5-bedrooms.
The home, selected as best home on tour for presentation and value, receives a sign rider, which can be displayed on the home sign in front of the listing. Please click on the photos below to see more of the home, voted Best on Tour:
I love digital marketing, and print marketing, yet in my marketing mix I am including more in-person events - doing open houses, and attending broker tours.
