In May I listed our investment unit with a real estate guy I met when visiting a local BNI chapter. At the chapter meet Paul did a 10 minute presentation and impressed me with not only his local knowledge but his passion for the district.
I mean, how do you tell one agent from another, they all tout to be the best. So I took a gamble.
Fast track forward 60 days. Unit sold AND settled.
When Paul did the research there were 2 similar units on the market in our complex. One had been on the market for 154 days, and the other 212. That property was right next door and was listed for $195,000.
OMG, 212 days, I needed to clear this property quickly, the tenant had just moved out after 4 years and I didn’t want to have to re-tenant it while trying to sell it. And I certainly didn’t want to have to cover the mortgage. I needed to shift this property, and quickly.
Just on 31 days later, offer made and unit sold – and within the 3% of the asking price. Woo woo.
So – was I a happy camper? You got that right.
So why am I sharing this?
I went straight to my Facebook wall and placed this rave review for Paul!
Paul Ellis of Warnbro Realty, about to become an Elders branch, is a legend. Sold my unit in a slow market in exactly 31 days. The unit next door is still on the market after 272 days. And I got within 3% of my asking like he said, legend.
Within minutes a friend posted a comment “Is he that good?”
Needless to say they have since touched base and no doubt they’ll be doing business together (by the way, this guy has several properties).
But it gets even better. Next day I get an email from someone else, “Should I use him?” Obvious response – “Yes!”
2 solid leads in 2 days! I reckon that’s a good start to the social media marketing arena.
And Paul doesn’t even have a Facebook Business Page (Yet). Imagine if he had that on a Facebook Business Page, that would mean those client raves would be there forever. Maximum Exposure, Credibility and your Authority, that’s what social media will do for your business. IF YOU DO IT RIGHT!
It’s not enough to just have a Facebook Business Page nowadays.
- You need to have it optimised
- You need to know how to leverage it properly
- You need to know how to us it to engage people, to maximise your efforts.
