Photo Journal: Chief Barketing Officer

Real Estate Agent with Thompson Company, REALTORS® 240.593.2860 MD594797

We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you a quick update on our newest team member:

Name: Lennon

Job title: Chief Barketing Officer 

In charge of: morale, snuggles, consoling buyers when their offer wasn't chosen, and sniffing out the best deals

Goals: to become a perfect open house attendant, a skilled guide (all the way to the closing table), and perhaps a model, too. Also, to eat all the things (but not while working of course). 

Obviously, I have the best assistant. He still snoozes on the job occasionally, but is a super quick learner. And also very adorable. Lennon, the Real Estate dawg does not have his own Instagram (it's tempting but we are no copydogs) but will make a guest appearance every so often at @onceuponahaus.  We'd love it if you follow us! 

We welcomed Lennon to our family and my team just about 6 months ago. He quickly became a cherished member and my trusted sidekick who will explore neighborhoods and new parks with me, and be on the look out for charming homes to photograph. He has heightened my awareness for dog-friendly features in a home (see an example here), and is a people magnet. His quick promotion to Chief Barketing Officer came natural and was only fair. This Real Estate Dawg has a great future ahead of him at Thompson Company.  

Lennon, the Real Estate Dawg, is very excited to bark you all about our new listings Coming Soon! Until then he's practicing...

Great post! I have a Teddy, he's always waiting for me and hangs out in my office. Teddy is a black miniature poodle and 11 years old so he snoozes a lot. Like all pets, Teddy is lovable, loyal and friendly to everybody he meets, so, I can relate.

Love it!  One of my most effective marketing photos was when my kids were very young and we had a family photo done with my wife and I with our three sons flanked by our two dogs.  I didn't plan on using it for marketing, but tried it once and my phone started ringing.  The LDS (Mormans) and the Catholics would call me assuming I was since I of their faith since I had three very young stair stepped children.  Elderly people would call me to help them since I seemed like a nice family man.  Other people called since I was a dog person, I must be OK.  It really epitimized the saying "People don't care how much you know until you prove how much you care!"
