BOLD Moves Real Estate celebrated their 10th Year Anniversary this month with a wonderful party for all the BOLDIES and their families hosted by Michelle Saltmarsh at her beautiful home in Mattapoisett. Broker/owner Kate Lanagan MacGregor stated two main reasons for their success. Professionally, she credits a deep commitment to excellence. Personally, she shared that BOLD Moves Associates, affectionately called BOLDIES, are like a tribe, protecting one another and supporting the common goals. With almost no turnover, she believes the culture of ‘loving what you do’ and associates’ encouragement for their own authentic branding are the strategic differentiators of BOLD Moves Real Estate! Each BOLDIE knows they are not alone in their career. Everyone looks out for one another and has ‘each other’s back’. There is nothing this tribe cannot accomplish together.

One of the best features of owning a smartphone is having the ability to have a camera on you at all times. Whether you use that camera for snapping selfies, taking family pictures or capturing a beautiful sunset, smartphone-camera technology has allowed even the most novice of users the chance to feel like a professional photographer. But if you’re looking to set your photos apart from the rest or just want to have fun with your images, here are some apps that will make your pictures pop.
Color Splash: Many smartphones and photo editing apps allow users to convert their images to grayscale, but Color Splash allows you to do exactly what the app’s name says — add a splash of color to your black and white photos. Color Splash converts your photo to grayscale while keeping the details you wish to keep in color. Cost: $0.99 to download on iOS and Android. Find it: pocket pixels.com/
Luminance: This app features easy use for the novice and advanced use for those who are looking for heavy editing of their photos.

Magic Shutter: If you’re a fan of long exposure shots, you don’t need a professional camera to pull it off. Magic Shutter allows you to control the shutter speed on your iPhone or iPad. You can expertly create blurring and double exposure pictures as well. You can preview the results and the Smart Exposure feature lets you take long exposure pictures without the risk of over-exposing the image. Cost: $2.99 to download on iOS.

Autodesk Pixlr: This app lets you transform your photos into works of art with more than two million combinations of free effects, overlays and filters.

The relationship between a home buyer or seller and their agent is based on trust, shared goals and understanding. I strive to continually improve and to do this I listen and take your needs and wants into consideration.
I am a member of MAR, NAR and MLSpin. I am also W.H.A.L.E certified as a Historic Home Specialist and E-Pro certified. One of the things I am doing in this ever changing market is aggressively pursuing business from the internet. Along with reaching buyers and sellers I am always searching for new and innovated ways to help buyers and sellers fulfill their dreams.
I work with buyers and sellers and develop long lasting relationships. Along with using the internet I will use all avenues such as attending seminars, mailings, ad print in all local papers and advertising in selected magazines to make your real estate experience the best it can be.
I reside in the seaside town of Fairhaven with my husband. I hold a degree in accounting and computer science. I have been a Realtor for many years and I am an active member in my community.
I am also looking forward to beginning my career as a licensed real estate instructor. Past involvements as School Council Member, Technology Council, Finance Committee member, along with coaching softball, soccer and being a dance mom have enabled me to gain the respect and trust within the community.
My family and I are avid sailors and I look forward to helping you chart your course for all your real estate needs.
I’d love to hear from you!
Expanding your database should be an “all the time” activity. You should be working on growing it all the time!Whether it is called floor time, up time or anything else, time spent in your real estate office can be time well spent, but only you can make it that way. Each phone call or walk-in about a listing is an opportunity for you! The key is to be prepared to ask the right questions. The more you can find out about that individual, the better. You have to be comfortable asking questions sincerely so that the person does not feel that you are prying but that you are really trying to help.
Be careful not to judge anyone too quickly. That gruff, skeptical voice on the phone or that oddly dressed individual who walks in off the street could turn into a lifetime client, if you can connect with them in a short amount of time. They are looking for someone whom they can trust, and you want to be that person. Here is where you need to ask questions to find out what their needs are and then be ready to show them that you can meet their needs.
Marketing Skills Matter!
You have several different options when deciding how to start marketing; no matter where readers are seeing your material, careful and creative writing is what makes it effective. As a real estate agent, your add is typically your first line of communication with your customer and it is important to make a good first impression. So how do you know where to begin? Lets take a look at a few key points:
A clear catchy headline– create a headline that will grab someone’s attention and make them want to read on.
Make it local– be sure to highlight your knowledge of the area by pointing out local assets of the property.
Be creative– make sure your content stands out from others, this is a great opportunity to point out anything special about the home and make the reader feel like they can picture themselves there.
Quality photos– while most of us aren’t professional photographers, it is important to take the time to make the pictures look great. This means preparing the scene, making sure the lighting is good. It is always a good idea to inspect the photos after taking them before posting them for others to see.
Include a call to action!- suggest that the reader contact you for more information, or stop by your next open house.
Proofread– make sure there are no errors before posting your material, if necessary have someone else read over it first.
Whether you’re creating an Open House Ad, a Listing Description, Just Listed or Sold Cards or even your business cards, these tips can help you put your best product forward and create a quality product.
