So I forgot to give the link to the first Property Blog that I designed here it is! Peep it and tell me what you think! :)
When you are trying to sell a house one key component is getting traffic in the house! If people aren't coming in to view the home, they more than likely aren't going to buy the home!
Good ways to generate traffic are:
1. Have an Open House [make sure that it is well advertised]
2. Send eBlast frequently to keep the home in the minds of agents
3. Reverse Prospecting - you want agents that are looking at it are well informed and educated on your home.

What is the key to a happy seller? I have to think that there are lots but a very important one is CONSTANT CONTACT! Whether you are calling to discuss recent showings or to discuss strategies on how to get their house SOLD, you should always stay in contact.
Today Zach and I started developing our plan to stay in constant contact with our sellers. We are going to be sending weekly viewing reports as well as sending eBlast to agents in Wake County. Developing unique selling strategies is essential to being a great agent and my boss man certainly knows how to think outside the box!

So for each of our listings, we create a blog entirely devoted to that property. I love that we do this because we are able to highlight everything that we want about the house. MLS doesn't let you get into detail like a blog does. We also let the owners do a post about the house. This allows possible buyers to get even more information about the house. I'm sure you are thinking, like what? One example is, a personal note from them about what the house means to them, what they love about it, etc.
Today I got the task of developing the blog for one of our new lisitings [pictured above]. FUN!!! But I must admit I was nervous because I wanted it to look really good for the Bossman! Developing my own blog is extremely different because I am not selling you something. Once complete, I will post the link so you can see my masterpiece. :)

I was born and raised in Lumberton, NC. I have a very large, supportive family. I graduated from NC State University where I studied Agricultural Business Management. What is that you ask? I decided on this major because I wanted to do pharmaceutical sales, at least I thought. Since graduating, I have worked as a property management coordinator, as well as, a leasing consultant. I thoroughly enjoyed both jobs because I got to meet new people often and I got to explore two career fields that I never thought I would. When people ask me, where do you see yourself in ten years? My answer is always, I have no clue! But, the one thing that I do know is that I am passionate about real estate. And, that brings me to today! I am excited to begin my journey at Go Realty as Zach’s Guardian Angel!
A few fun facts about me:
(1) I am a sports fanatic
(2) I am Native American
(3) My guilty pleasure is reality TV
(4) I have a brother that is 3 years OLDER than me and a brother that is 22 years YOUNGER than me [pictured above]

So this is my first time blogging. I have always thought of myself as being social media savy, key word THOUGHT. Since becoming Zach's Guardian Angel, I really am. I am now on Twitter, Yammer, and Blogger. How cool am I? :) I have a long way to go but I am so excited! I am like a kid in a candy store. And how lucky am I to have Zach Schabot & the Go Realty team to learn from! Let the Angel Confessions begin...
