Plus For Our Sellers: We Are Founding a River Creek Luxury Homes Group <ul><li>Encourage multiple Agents from multiple Realties with listings in River Creek to join forces to market all listings. </li></ul><ul><li>Organize cooperative simultaneous Broker Open Houses to attract more agents, saving them travel time and giving them a wider range of homes to preview. </li></ul><ul><li>Educate agents about River Creek’s many amenities. </li></ul><ul><li>Meet monthly to match listings to potential buyers and review market trends. </li></ul>THE IDEA: First event was August 23, 2011: 7 agents from 5 Realtors held simultaneous broker open houses in Clubhouse Square. We organized this. Virtual Open House Invitations and Carriers - Meant to replace the standard Just Listed and Just Sold postcards, our Virtual Open House Invitations are another physical product designed to grab the attention of affluent prospects. Our goal is to reinvent effective marketing tools and strategies in a manner that is distinct, unique, and affordable. The standard Just Listed or Just Sold postcard has become too mundane. When sorting mail, prospects immediately recognize the size, shape, and characteristics of the standard postcard and most will toss it without regard to the content. Although once an effective way for agents to farm an area, to alert the community of their neighborhood experience and expertise, and to brand themselves, the ubiquitous postcard is becoming less and less valuable and less effective. Whether mailed as a standalone card or within the Platinum Carrier, the Platinum Virtual Open House Invitation is sure to grab the attention of even the most discerning prospect. The invitations are intentionally made a different size and shape than most postcards. They are printed in full color with a "You're invited to attend..." message beckoning the reader to visit the Platinum Homesite. They can also be used to replace flyers in brochure boxes.
