That’s the knowledge a prospect will be looking for from you, the real estate professional, to deliver when the time comes to choose a Realtor to represent them. Sellers will look for someone who can effectively sell the community to prospective buyers.  Buyers will look for someone who can direct them to areas that will best serve their family’s needs.

Start helping them now.

Help your prospects learn:

  • What are the schools are like?  What areas are walking distance to local schools?  What schools are winning awards?  Talk about special school programs.
  • Local business gems.  Which businesses support the community?  Where are the great restaurants?
  • Where do the kids hang out?  What is there for teenagers to do?  Where is the nightlife?
  • What distinguishes different sub-neighborhoods or subdivisions?   Try neighborhood video tours to shed light on little-known neighborhood treasures.
  • Are there nearby senior facilities and active community programs for seniors?
