YouTube Thursdays - Ideal Listings Reflect Your Brand

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

YouTube Thursdays July 22, 2021 - Ideal Listing Reflect Your Brand

 

 

 

Time spent at a property in sync with our ViewHomes niche is always quite enjoyable. After all, we are surrounded by Nature As Neighbors. Last week, as we waited for the professional photographer to complete the interior photos at our latest listing, there was plenty of time to explore the grounds.

 

It was a gorgeous summer morning, and we spent our time getting photos and shooting video. For example, here's a short video we shared via social media. It generated a lot of interest. The interest included calls and questions from other local real estate agents and an inquiry from a woman considering a move to Washougal.  

 


If you have a niche, it's much easier to find creative ways to share your focus with your clients - and soon-to-be clients. Choose to highlight the things about your listing that compliment your brand. It's the reason we featured the river, and not the high-end kitchen with a pot-filler, 5 burner gas stove, and built-in wine cooler. 

 

We encourage you to seriously ponder what your brand represents and how you can best reflect it in your listings marketing. It's important to remember our brand represents who we are and attracts like-minded clients to us. It is all about the listing, but hopefully, you got the listing because it truly represents your brand. 

 

By the way, the sellers chose to review all offers after weekend showings, but the winning offer was written a day after the $995,000.00 property was listed as Active. 

 

Have a great Thursday!

Good morning, Debe.  Congratulations on another great job.  And, thanks for the reminder about focusing on the lifestyle niche aspect instead of the features of a home.

To know your brand is to know yourself and everything else kind of stems from that, right

Transport the other end of the signal to your area. You are the local expert who lives, breathes, spends their life in the communities surrounding the property listings. Exploit that fact as the local insider by posting video on what you do for fun, what it is like here where I live and share. Pretty river and thanks for the glimpse Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD !

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Well, here it is already Fall and I can't get you out of my mind. I pray you and your family are doing okay. I need you to know I'm thinking of you and wishing you the peace you give to me whenever I view one of your videos, such as this one of the stream. In the stream of life, you make energy real for me and I need you to know, I wish you all the best.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - hope AR gives you notice. Yes, we are all fine. Thank you so much for your concern. Bernie had shoulder surgery, I had a minor surgery earlier in the year, and with young puppies/dogs - life is keeping us hopping. I had to put AR on the back burner for a while, but I will return. Today, I'm sticking my toes in the water. One day soon, I'll take the plunge again. Hugs to you.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD - Thank you, for the kindness of your reply. I'm so sorry to hear that there has been surgery between you and Bernie. I pray for healing and good health from this day forward. Yes! Puppies and older dogs are family and like kids each one has their own personalities. There is a lot of responsibility, liability, flexibility, abilities, capabilities, acceptability, irritability, and affordability too. They make us laugh and cry; then we get rewarded with unconditional love. Treating pets like family is how we give back too. 

As we move into the holidays, I hope you have many reasons to smile and to zoom into those highest priorities that will keep you sanely happy both physically and emotionally. I hope your family will share in togetherness, love, and appreciation for each other. May you find peace and may peace find you and may Mother Nature treat you kindly with an array of beauty, introspection, and inspiration. 

Thanks again, I greatly appreciate you letting me what's going on in your life. I wish good things for  you always.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD You are so right, it is the beauty of the community the inside of the property can always and most of the time is redecorated to fit your own taste .
