Serving long distance clients

I love using technology to provide services to my clients.  Today is a good example.  I worked with a couple from out of state during their visit to our area over the Christmas holidays.  Unfortunately, we did not get a home under contract during their time here, but we developed an excellent rapport and I gained a thorough understanding of their real estate needs.

Today, I'll be heading to North Port to do a Virtual Walk-Through of a home that is newly listed for sale.  The buyers already know and like this area quite well thanks to their visit.  By providing them a video of a home for sale, they don't have to physically be here to see a property.  I post raw video of the home, filmed as I'm walking through it, and post a link to the video on my web domain, which I can email to my clients.  All they have to do is click the link and watch the video.

According to a NAR study, 74% of buyers look for real estate video, but less than 1% of Realtors provide it (and I think it's even less than that in the Sarasota area).  I invite you to read more about Virtual Walk-Through technology on my website.
