The power of a great story teller

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities 303302

Down through the aged great story tellers have been celebrated. Back in the day, before TV or Radio, yes young'uns there was such a day, people entertained themselves with stories. Thankfully great authors ( and bloggers, too) are continuing this tradition, but it seems to be dying out in the general population.

I find that the Real Estate universe is also not immune. Pull up any listing on your local MLS system and read what the agent has written. "beautiful 3 bed 2 bath on a street with trees, blah, blah, blah...

I always video my listings and try to tell the story, visually, of the home as best I can. Sometimes I hit the jackpot and get an owner willing to go on camera and tell the story of their home. My latest work captures the seller talking about a very unique home and it's history.

Take a look and let me know what you think...

Hello Peter - storytelling is important not just in real estate but in life.  Some excel, others not so much.  The ways of conveying the information definitely varies.  Finding what works for you and your "audience" matters.

Hi Peter- very interesting touch to help buyers get a feel for the house. The seller sounds very comfortable in the video.
