"We are totally dedicated to a constant upgrade and enhancement of all of our marketing strategies from print media to the internet in order to give our clients the very latest and greatest advantages in reaching the buying and selling market today. Catching the attention of more buyers and sellers of real estate is the edge we offer. From day one of my career some 35 years ago this September, I have sought to do a number of things better than anyone else in my market and among those has been pursuing my education and skills in real estate and another has been to be the top marketer which today means being on top of the net and the tools available to us there. It is very gratifying to see the facts prove this out. Having a site that is twice as effective as our next closest competitor makes me feel very reassured we are on top of our game and yet we are constantly striving to improve our site, day in and day out.
There are plenty of other ways in which we are considered leaders in our field. One of those is by offering our clients a real set of choices in the forms of representation, from buyer and seller agency to the newest option in MA for which I myself helped create the legislation that was adopted just a few years ago, Facilitation also called Transaction Brokerage.
I pledge to always strive to stay at the forefront of the changes and advancements and enhancements in the real estate profession. That is my nature and that is what our most discerning clients expect and the rest benefit from.
