Real Estate seems pretty cut and dry right? I mean you have a home that you want to sell so you put up a sign and someone who wants to buy it knocks on your door or calls the number on the sign and there you have it, the home is sold. If only it were that easy. Check out our Blog Post on Selling a Bronx Home. Click Here.
As a Realtor my primary job is not as a Real Estate Agent. My real job is as a Real Estate Marketer. I am in the business of Marketing Real Estate so that the largest amount of buyers know about your home and call to make an appointment to view your home.
It is a fact that if you have the best home but it isn’t properly positioned where buyers are looking, then more often than not your home will not sell. This means that homes that might not be as good as yours will sell faster if they are Marketed better.

Besides marketing your home on some of the largest Real Estate sites online I also use social media as part of my marketing efforts. My social media reach is by far one of the largest of others in my field.
Facebook Reach 2500+
Google+ Building a Following
ActiveRain (Realtors Social Media)
The benefit of promoting your home on the various social media sites mentioned above is obvious. Social Media is a major part of online marketing. Our following is large which allows us the opportunity to promote your home to those who might not be searching on the other major Real Estate sites. You might have heard of the the term “6 degrees of seperation” this means that it all becomes about who knows who and in your case who knows someone interested in buying a home just like yours.
88 percent of buyers start their search online. That doesn’t mean that I start and finish marketing real estate online. Part of my marketing strategy is to reach out and talk to people. A good old fashioned street campaign has proven to be highly effective, yet most don’t use this strategy. Networking with Movers and Shakers is also a major part of my strategy.
Open Houses are also part of what I do. There are three types of open houses.
A Brokers Open is where I promote your home to other Real Estate Agents and Brokers. The purpose of this is simple. The average agent or broker works with up to 4 buyers. I leverage my marketing by reaching out to others that might have a buyer for your home.
Public Open House is simply inviting the public to take a tour of your home and making it an event.
Neighborhood Open House is similar to a Public Open House but is solely for your neighbors. The benefit to this is that your neighbors might have family or friends that are looking to move in the neighborhood.
