Good Morning BHHS GA Associates – Dan Forsman here –
I hope everyone got to see the eclipse on Monday. I was in the north Georgia mountains and the experience was truly amazing. What an incredible reminder of the beauty and complexity of the universe in which we live. For a few moments, millions of people set aside their differences and stood together to simply enjoy this rare phenomenon. The next one to be visible in the United States will be April 8th 2024.
We also have a lot of exciting things happening in our company right now.
Congratulations to everyone for another epic MEGA Open House event on Sunday. We had 381 beautiful Open Houses on display and over 3000 visitors showed up. Once again, Zillow was the most common source of where visitors found the open house. Our Zillow ads and Zillow Videos continue to pay dividends for our sellers.
Congratulations to Jenna Bennett who is the consumer winner of our MEGA Open House iPad sweepstakes. Linda Kostura was the hosting agent and listing agent from our Suwannee Duluth office. And congratulations to Katie Urquhart for being the Agent Winner of a new iPad. I know you both will put those iPads to good use!
REAL Trends released their annual rankings of websites on Friday and the #1 website in the nation was our own Group KORA from our Buckhead Office! Congratulations to Karen Rodriguez and her entire team. Group Kora specializes in luxury high-rise developments and has a long history of successful accomplishments. Their website recognition is a testament to their high level of professionalism and attention to details. Yes – luxury is in the details!
We already have the most advanced listing syndication network in the world with over 40,000 websites. Today, we are pleased to announce that in September we will be adding our listings to the Financial Times of London. The venerable Financial Times is one of the most respected organizations in the world and will help us reach even more upscale buyers.
This week, we have our second meeting with our Real Estate Innovation Council. The mission of the group was shaped by feedback from the council members: “To create and champion an intentional culture infused with relevant resources and cutting-edge solutions to empower each of our team members with the best assets and processes to solve the unsolved innovatively and achieve high levels of performance.”
The Council is focused on 6 tactical priorities including:
• Sales Skills
• Technical Training
• Social Media
• Lead Routing
We look forward to working with the Real Estate Innovation Council members to make our company better and better. Here is a video that we created after the first meeting.
