A quick overview of the 2012 Calgary Real Estate Board Conference and trade show. A nice audio overlay of Mayor Naheed Nenshi’s speech from the breakfast. Did my best with some really low resolution video to put together this piece. Not my most polished production but hey, it is shot from the “field”!
We are always looking for ways to improve the advantages that we extend to our clients. I have shared often the challenges we have in obtaining FEEDBACK from showings. Yet that will not stop us from pursuing new ways to achieve our goals and serve our clients better. We have recently adopted a new software that will help provide ease of access for our clients and assist us in acquiring the feedback from agents that we all desire. For information on this improved system please contact The Ramage Group.
I feel very strongly that one of the most important things that we do as a Real Estate team is create a platform and use a megaphone to broadcast a message. For our sellers it is trusting that the home that is being listed is given a great representation and that the representation is easy to find. For buyers it is seeking relevant information from active professionals in the industry.
Yesterday I purchased “Apple TV” from the Apple store. It costs about $150 with a proper connection cable. It was extremly simple to install and links to our home wireless internet signal. In my home we do not watch much televison but our lap tops are our key link to the world. I upload movies from iTunes and generally YouTube is the source of my video media browsing experirence. (My staple is watching Ted Talks )
With this one time start up cost of connecting my new Apple TV all these search engines and modern media sources are streamed direct to my TV and are super easy to browse.
What I was extra excited about was to see www.RamageGroup.TV on a big screen. Both on the YouTube Channel and more recently to a Podcast. Both are easy to find and watch on Apple TV. I personally feel that these shifts in consumers media consumptions represents a radical diversion in the way people aquire information and seek entertainment.
There is no doubt in an ocean of content it could be easy to be lost in a sea of distractions. Yet I firmly believe that quality always rises to the top. As long as our focus is on creating quality content we can know that it is being the given the opportunity to be discovered. To todays date our YouTube Channel has had over 6700 views.
Building such a platform and a megaphone does not happen overnight yet with a steady commitment and seeking constant improvement I am glad the we are leaders in our industry, using the tools of technology to the advantage of our clients.
The Ramage Group is now has a Podcast. That is just another part of The Ramage Advantage!
A great overview of the how a property presents online via the www.mls.ca and www.realtor.ca. This video shows specifically how the new www.ramagegroup.net site showcases a listing using all appropriate links to a home for sale. Our new website allows us the opportunity to host all our video, photographs, floor plans and more in one easy to use location. Additionally we have added “share” and “like” buttons to take full advantage of social media applications.
