Marketing with Videos

Videos are a powerful way to market to your audience, and the possibilities are endless! You can create a video to market a specific property, highlight a happy customer or share information. But it seems that most people shy away from videos, whether it be fear of the unknown or it’s possible they’re camera shy. So we did some research and came up with great tips on how to start creating videos.
1. Define your audience– before you even pick up the camera and begin filming you need to decide who you want to reach.

2. Define your goal-decide what message you are trying to get across to your audience and how.

3. Pick a topic that has done well in a different format and convert that into a video!– Can’t think of anything new for a video? Use something you’ve already created, such as a video for a blog post that’s already been written.
4. Record yourself reading your script– Use your phone or whatever tool you have and practice!
5.  What’s better than a video testimonial from a happy client?  Ask your client is they wouldn’t mind giving you a two-minute testimonial.  Short and sweet is the best. It doesn’t have to be perfect just genuine.  Use your IPad and record them telling about their experience.
6.. Embed your video into your blog, website or share the link on your social networks– Share with your target audience and look for feedback.

5 Tips to Launch Your Real Estate Career

You’ve just passed your real estate exam and are ready to start your new career.  Here are 5 tips to help you launch.

1. Treat it like a Job. Go to work at 9 am (or whatever your designated “working hours” are) and start your day. Offer to help with what is needed. Dress and act professionally. Act “AS IF”.  Sign up for uptime and be available when the phone rings.  Start your marketing strategy with daily prospecting calls.  Send out your postcards announcing your new profession to the neighborhood.  Start handing out your business calls.

2. Follow a training Plan. Whatever your sales training is, do it the way it is laid out for you. Don’t get creative or skip corners. If your company does not provide a training program, use other resources to follow one. Make your car a traveling classroom. Shadow one of the more experienced realtors in the company.  Offer to help them at an Open House or showing appointment.  It is a great learning experience.

3. Join a Committee at the Board of Realtors. Become embedded in your professional board. Take advantage of what State and National Associations of Realtors has to offer. Treat other Realtors as your A+ customers. Go to events!


4. Volunteer on a Local Level. Become an integral part of your community. Southcoast- Serves ( has many volunteer opportunities if you don’t have any favorites. There are many opportunities to help out in your community.  Volunteer at school or sporting events.  It will help you get noticed.  Wear your company swag so people will be aware of your new profession.


5. Become Dedicated and Informed. Work toward certifications, Follow Real Estate News through sources like Inman News, Bloomsberg, and MAR and NAR. Get on their email news flashes.


Please contact us at Agent Rising with any questions you may have. We can help you jump start your career and get you noticed.

Fall Real Estate Market

We are almost ready to enter the second half of the year! How is the housing market looking and what do the experts have to say about the fall market?

This year so far has been an improvement for home buyers, especially millennials and first-time home buyers.  The rise in housing prices has started to slow and there has been a significant dip in mortgage rates.   The year will continue to be a seller’s market, but buyers may find there is less competition and frantic home searching, and more time to consider their options and take a little time when deciding to put an offer in on a home they love.

Millennials will still continue to be a majority of the buying population.  Inventory may rise slowly but not fast enough to satisfy all.

Experts predict that prices may still rise slowly but mortgage rates should stay low. Without the pressure of rising interest rates, buyers will face less competition and more time to carefully consider their options.

Of course, some areas will be more beneficial to buyers than others, but the frantic pace seems to be slowing down at the present moment.  Good news for every buyer, young or old.

Are you fascinated by the real estate industry? Now is a great time to start your real estate career.  The kids are heading back to school.  Now is the perfect opportunity to think about your career.  You can become a real estate agent by the holidays!  We have all the tools you need to sit for and pass the real estate exam.
