Become a Real Estate Celebrity
Are you ready to become a real estate celebrity and grow your referral business? It’s a lot easier than you may think, and rewarding in more ways than one. The goal is to build residual business by broadcasting super-engaging community video interviews about the local schools, businesses, and homes for sale. This will help you become a familiar agent who knows the important people and places in a community.
Homebuyers and sellers consider the neighborhood, commute, schools, and community amenities as much (or more) than the house itself. And many want a real estate agent who is a true community expert to help them make the right choice. What better way to show your expertise than to publish video interviews with school officials, business owners, community leaders, and neighbors. See some video interview examples below.
Your video interviews are a great service to the people who live and work in a community. This type of service appeals to everyone, and you will LOVE all the attention and business it affords you. Don’t worry about scripts, interview questions, or fear of the camera. When you ask people about their passions, they will have plenty to say without prompts or practice.
Your broadcast station for these interviews is social media, with Facebook being the most popular channel for community buzz. Don’t be intimidated! Agents all over the country are learning how to film and produce their own videos in minutes with little cost and no previous experience.
