Thinking of Selling your waterfront home in Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, or Orange Park? Finding the right real estate agent is critical to success!
As your Waterfront Real Estate Agent, our focus produces results.
Marketing is everything! Your home must be presented where the buyers are, and that is online! Regardless of previous thoughts on who is on line and who isn't, the stats are strong. The stats state that some 90% of home buyers start their search online and they average 40 hours searching for homes online. That is huge!
We market your waterfront home to the most searched websites including the other real estate brokerage sites! If they are looking for waterfront, your house is there.
Google sends waterfront, oceanfront, and riverfront, home buyers to this site: When home buyers type in "Waterfront homes in Jacksonville" or any of the other series of keywords relating to waterfront, this site is one of the top search results. That does great things for your waterfront home. It gets exposure! It gets exposure to the right people! Targeted and accurate!
Luxury Waterfront shown in Person by appointment only: Why leave the showing of your luxury waterfront home to a REALTOR lock box? If your home is luxury and waterfront, I'm showing it to the buyers and buyer's agent. The Buyer's agent is often seeing the home for the first time as well, so it's as much a surprise to them as the buyer. I prefer to be there, to make sure the home is shown appropriately, to ask them to purchase, to get immediate feedback.
PHOTOS! I get constant feedback from other agents that their buyer clients found one of my listings and wants to see it. The request usually comes with "the photos were great!". I bring in lighting, use wide angle lenses, and get the best photos I can. Always experimenting and always trying to one up, I get great results.
Professionally Designed Marketing Piece: When showing your home, I never give out a MLS print out or any kind of amateur flyer. With an eye for graphic design, I use a professional designer to put together pieces that will best showcase your home. The result is an added level of luxury and sophistication.
Technology: Always pushing the envelope of how to best market a home on line, I'm constantly researching and trying new sources. Video sites like YouTube, Vimeo, and Viddler, Social Media sites like Twitter, and on line community forums are getting my current attention.
RE/MAX Collection: This designation helps to further distinguish your home as a luxury home with style! Brad is a RE/MAX Specialists agent approved to use the RE/MAX Collection designation.
