COVID-19 and How We are Different

As we all have been affected by this Pandemic it has changed how we do business and we have following CDC Guidelines yet delivering for our clients.  At the Forrest Team of REALTORS, we were one of the first Atlanta REALTORS to embrace video marketing of ALL of our properties for sale, not just the million-dollar ones.  We have been doing video marketing and conferencing for years. Unlike other agents we are not trying to catch up… we have been there and done that for years now.  Because of this and the additional technologies like 3D self-directed tours and other innovative systems that we have put in place we are certain that we are the best team to market your property. 

Your home is likely the most precious investment in your portfolio. As your Realtors, our goal is to help you sell your property for the highest price possible and within a time frame that fits your needs. You deserve a team that takes pride in providing the absolute best marketing in the Atlanta marketplace. As you can see we do more for our clients every day and on every property; just ask our satisfied seller clients. The ‘Art of Delivering More’ is not just a slogan but a way of life! This is why our listings typically sell Faster and for More.

Here is Just a Quick Overview of How We Deliver MORE:

More in Agent Targeting

Most listing agents don’t know how to do this labor intensive but highly effective technique.  We actually know which buyer’s agents have active and able buyers for your home.  As part of our proprietary marketing system, we reach out to these buyer’s agents, sharing information and custom videos of our listings BEFORE they hit the market. When our listings launch their buyers are waiting!

More with Videography, HDR Photography, Drone Shots, and 3D Self-Directed Virtual Tours

We can’t say enough about this as it is the cornerstone to all marketing in today’s marketplace.  Professional HDR still photography provides for a true and best representation of your home.  But to actually make your home standout we have professional produced HD video tours of all of our listings not just the million-dollar ones. Homes marketed likes ours receive over 400% more views and showings. We publish and promote these videos everywhere…

Video, 3D Self-Directed Virtual Tours from the Curb with QR Code

One of our highly effective ways to use a video and have market differentiation is signage.  We use both a QR Code and a video sign rider on our listings; for example “See the Video at: 9.ForrestATL.com” This points to a custom webpage just for your home with our custom VIDEO promoting all of the things that make your home special PLUS a 3D Self-Directed Virtual Tour.  These enhance the perceived value of your home in the buyer’s mind. In addition this custom webpage has several ‘More Info’ buttons to capture visitors contact info for our immediate follow up.

QR Code for VIDEO on every marketing piece

Every piece of marketing collateral has that sub-domain on it promoting the video so buyers can see the home in a way that we have designed to highlight its best features. Many buyers visiting with a buyers agent will pick up a listing flyer and visit the video after the showing to refresh their memory of the property.
