August Fun – Still more to be had!

When I was a kid, we took our family vacations to Cape Cod every August. I remember patiently waiting to go away and how July just dragged on. Then we’d go on vacation and when we got home, it was immediately time to go back to school shopping, cram in the summer reading assignments, and spend as much time as we could swimming and boating and beaching before having to head back to the routines September brought. I can’t believe how quickly this summer has been flying past. Luckily, there are still plenty of summer related fun activities scheduled over the next few weeks.

I spent the morning hanging out with a bunch of awesome kids and parents at the creative playground behind John Pettibone School in New Milford. Every Thursday this month at 10am, aKindergarten Kids playdate takes place with fun events, activities, crafts and a story for kids. I had a blast making homemade bird feeders and coloring pictures of birds and trees with my little 5-year-old friends. If you have a child starting Kindergarten in the fall, come on down and meet some other children and parents in the same boat. It’s all about easing the transition to a full academic day by seeing more and more familiar faces.

From Marketing to Real Estate. Why?

I’m often asked why I chose to get into this field… especially now with all the market trends the way they’ve been. Call it a leap of faith. Call it following a passion. Call it crazy. All of the above are true.

What’s also true is that these two businesses are so closely related. Realtors are marketers. We are marketing your property so it gets exposure – and not just plain old exposure, but the right exposure to the right buyers. We are marketing ourselves to potential clients. Why should you list with me? Why should you choose me to represent you as a buyer? These are all questions I answer daily.

As a Realtor, we’re responsible for ourselves, our listings, and our clients. We are aligned with Brokers that trust us to represent them. We are people that are not just marketing a product, but marketing a business, a brand, an industry overall.

I have over 12-years experience in marketing. Over the course of those 12-years the internet has gone from being something we used to check email (one email account for the entire office) to something that without access to, our daily lives come to a screeching halt. I’ve been responsible for marketing plans that started out with line items such as ‘Mailing 1, Mailing 2, Postcard 1, Postcard 2’. If I handed that marketing plan to a Marketing Director today, they’d laugh. Where are the targeted media buys? Where are the email blasts? Where is the social media strategy? My how things have changed!

As a Realtor, I’m ready to leverage my background knowledge to propel me forward in my new career. And the fun is really just beginning.

Are you an avid user of social media? You can find me on Facebook and on Twitter.

 

 

Understanding Referrals

One of the biggest misunderstandings about the services  I provide as a Realtor’s is, “I don’t live in Connecticut. You can’t help me.”

Wrong!

One of the reasons I aligned with Prudential CT Realty is because of the strong brand and popularity the name “Prudential” carries. There are Prudential Real Estate offices and agents across the country. I can connect you with them in just minutes.

Networking is huge in this business. Without a network of people, it is near impossible to grow as a Realtor. Largely due to the popularity of Social Media websites, our networks have grown across miles.  I don’t know about you, but my Facebook friends range from my next-door-neighbor to my 2nd grade teacher (no joke!) and everyone in between.

Prudential agents are Full Service agents. We offer a multitude of services from within our offices such as buyer and seller representation, rental representation, mortgage help, insurance, and more. By calling on a Prudential agent, you’re gaining a professional representative in this industry.
