I'm sure you know that not all REALTORS(R) are the same. Now, more than ever, it is essential to work with a trusted professional who offers experience in the market and integrity in every situation.

Below, I've outlined my virtual real estate system, featuring virtual home buying tools, ways to safely sell your home, and my proven marketing strategies designed to reach the most qualified buyers. And, as always, I invite you to reach out to me with any questions you have about navigating a home sale or purchase during this uncertain time.

Decades of Real Estate Marketing Tactics Adapted to a Virtual Environment

Photography

Most people start their home search online. I work closely with our experienced in-house, professional photographers to capture the features of your home that will appeal to buyers. Our photographers have the latest equipment and we guarantee the highest quality of all forms of media including 3D Tours, photography, and drone photography. All exterior photos are changed with seasons.

Market Preparation

I work with a professional who will advise you on preparing your home for photographs and showings. This can be done in person following safety guidelines, or we can make the arrangements virtually.

Copywriting

My property descriptions are carefully crafted to capture the essence of each home that I market.

Web Traffic

Buyers searching on the internet find my site content and blog a credible source of market, community, and real estate information. I always include information and photos of my listings on my website.

Listing Syndication and Exposure

Our strategic syndication ensures your property is seen by a qualified world-wide audience. Only by listing with Sotheby’s International Realty will your property be seen on the two most trafficked luxury real estate websites - SothebysRealty.com and LuxuryRealEstate.com. Further, your listing will be syndicated to over 5,000 websites, including the most trafficked real estate, luxury, art, news and lifestyle websites. We provide listing analytics so you can see which websites and locations are attracting the most views.

Email Marketing

Our email list contains 9,000 people. All listings are featured on email mailings that reach prospective buyers and real estate agents throughout Richmond and the Mid-Atlantic, with even greater reach to the entire United States.

Social Media

Highly targeted social media reaches thousands of prospects and REALTORS(R) who share valuable content and properties. I have sold several properties via social media when the posts are shared by someone I know who knows of the perfect buyer.

Agent Relationships

Since most transactions are co-brokered between two agents, I make other agents’ jobs easy because I want them to bring buyers to my listings. With a positive attitude and non-negotiable integrity, I've developed an extraordinary network to serve my clients.
