Recently, I listed a home on 4030 N. Atlantic Blvd Fort Lauderdale, Florida. One of the deciding factors as to why the seller decided to choose me versus other Realtors is that I mentioned in the marketing plan that we would shoot extensive aerial footage of the home and the neighborhood in order to showcase his home. He told me that no one else that had offered their services had mentioned that they would do this, and that he thought it would make a huge difference in how the home was viewed by potential buyers. Shortly thereafter the exclusive listing for $4,350,000 was granted to me, and I went to work, here are the results. Needless to say the owner is very happy with how things turned out, and inquiries on the property are coming in quickly.

Just a short while ago the sign below was installed in front of my newest listing, a $4.35mm direct oceanfront home in Fort Lauderdale.   Did it cost me a pretty penny? You bet!! Does it look like any other signs in the neighborhood? No way!!   All too often agents become very lazy, and stingy in the marketing of their listings. They somehow believe the same old thing that has always worked will keep on working. In a business that is ultra competitive, it's the attention to detail that always wins the big listing, like it did for me on this home at 3040 N. Atlantic Blvd in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

It was once said that “a picture is worth a thousand words”. Fast forward to 2014, and the phrase now can be worded as “a photo is worth thousands of impressions”. Every day we are bombarded with images, whether it is a Facebook post on our smartphone, magazine covers staring back at us in the grocery, or an advertisement in our mailboxes. Images elicit strong emotions in human beings and can easily convey a message that words simply cannot. With that said why is it that so many homeowners are accepting of lousy photos of their home when it is listed with a real estate agent?   Many agents do not consider the fact that those hastily shot photos from their phone, within moments of upload will soon be on display to the world. Yet, amateur hour rules the day. So much so that there is even ...

      In litigation aimed at fraudulent business practices within the mobile telephone industry, the Federal Trade Commission on Tuesday accused T-Mobile of making hundreds of millions of dollars by scamming customers with unauthorized text message charges, according to FTC Consumer Protection Director Jessica Rich. The FTC is seeking a court order to permanently bar T-Mobile from “cramming,” or charging cellphone customers for spam text messages that they did not request or have an interest in receiving.  In a process known as “third-party billing,” carriers such as T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon typically place charges on a consumer’s bill for services provided by another company.   In return, the phone company receives a substantial percentage of the amount charged.   When the ch...
