The concept of real estate marketing is always evolving. From billboards, direct mail, to word of mouth, to SEO. I feel like many real east professionals get so caught up in driving traffic to their business, that they leave out the most important thing of all, credibility. Why should you shift your focus to this? Shouldn't the thousands you spend in marketing drive the correct traffic to your business and take care of itself? Of course you want traffic, but what good is that traffic if it never converts. It's identical to having a store in the perfect location, but when you go in, stuff is just everywhere and you have no idea if they have the product you are looking for or not. Lets explore the importance of credibility. Why It MattersWithout credibility, the traffic you send to your b...

You've probably seen the signs all around your neighborhood displaying "we buy houses" or "cash for your house." Maybe you've even called the numbers and it's a company telling you that they pay cash for your house and close in as little as 3-5 days. For people that have a home that needs remodeled, inherited a home, or just need to sell super fast, these companies can be a great option. But you need to do your due diligence in vetting them. They are not all the same. And like many professions, the bad ones give the industry a bad reputation. Hopefully this article can provide a little clarity, and help you find a legitimate buyer for your house. Don't Call The Numbers On The Bandit SignsAlthough a few legitimate companies use these, most bandit signs with only a slogan and a number are...

 I never really understood the TikTok hype. I mean I downloaded it on my phone, and it certainly helped provide me with quality entertainment during my morning coffee, but I assumed it was a fad that would pass quickly. It wasn’t until I made a quick before/after video of one of Shipwash Properties flips, that I realized how much power this app provided when it came to marketing, and it’s completely free. When I made the before/after of one of my flip houses, I got several impressions. Not only did I post the video to TikTok, but I also posted it across my other social media platforms as well. And people loved it! They engaged with it, they commented, they liked, and they shared. Wait, why didn’t they do this when I was just posting progress pictures? Let’s investigate the power of TikT...

When I first started my business just this year, I was obsessing for days over what my logo would look like. I wanted to stand out from the other real estate investment companies. I hired a freelancer to design my logo. She probably hated me due to the revision requests I sent over. After it was all said and done, I still wasn't happy. It certainly stood out from some of my competitors, but I was never 100% satisfied. I had this obsession that I wanted a brand that would immediately stand out above the rest. I overcomplicated this entire process. After spending hundreds of dollars on marketing materials with my newly designed logo, it hit me. No one gives a crap what your logo is!  A Change of DirectionLet’s face it, real estate is competitive. Whether you are an agent, broker, or an in...
