Real Estate Photography. Real Estate Videography

Video thumbnail for youtube video Real Estate Photography. Real Estate Videography - My Title Guy

The other day I was cruising the internet {big shock right} looking for the culprit. Normally I would have to look high and low to find the guilty party, at least I would in any other industry - but in the real estate industry I can easily find them. The culprit is horrible real estate photos or real estate videos and folks - they are EVERYWHERE. It amazes me how bad some of the real estate photos and videos really are.

Video thumbnail for youtube video Will You Be Ready? The Return Of A "Traditional" Housing Market - My Title Guy

Will you be ready? Remember the days when the Phoenix Housing market was crazy? I like to say "even a blind poodle could sell a home". Simply send a postcard with something clever on it like "everything I touch turns to SOLD" or "Don't Make A Move Without Me" and the phone would ring. Of course, it was not the postcard or even the clever tagline that was making the phone ring - it was the sales price listed on the front of the card itself. It turns out that it doesn't take a … [Read more...]

Title Company Marketing- The Emergence of the Beta Rep

Title Company Marketing

I was a title rep from 2001 to 2011, 10 years of joy, frustration, stress, anxiety, did I say frustration? I worked for 5 different title companies over those 10 years - all in Phoenix, one of the most competitive real estate and title markets in the country.

Marketing Title: The Year The S%*t Hit The Fan

There is a storm a-brewin'. No, that is not a typo, it's the closest a guy from New York can get to a western accent. A-brewin'. I started in the title industry back in 2000. Things were different then and boy have things changed. If you are a title rep, ask your sales manager what the good old days were like - and yes, they were the good old days. Here in Phoenix, I bet there were not more that 40 title companies back in 2000, fast forward to 2006 - there were over 100, fast … [Read more...]

Starting a new company is a lot like having a baby, it's a lot of work and worry and frustration and you can't wait for it to be … [Read more...]

How Real Estate Agents Are Like Elephants

Title Company Marketing

  "Warning: This is a generalization.... Thanks Cara". :-) Real estate agents are like elephants. No they are not big or ugly or smell. Agents are like elephants because they - like elephants - have great memories - they never forget - they hold grudges against their abusers. My mom says by 7 year old daughter has a memory like an elephant. She never forgets. Really. We go places that I have long since forgotten about that she remembers - immediately. "Dad, … [Read more...]
