Did you see the report to Tooele County Realtors from Chris Sloan Group1 Real Estate?
I’m Gordon, I work the back end of Chris & Bernas websites. I help with some of their posts, their media presence and in general help them provide their clients a good online experience.
In short my job is to try to help Chris & Berna establish a brand (both Corporate & personal) that is thought of as competent, knowledgeable, and trustworthy.
Perhaps one of my more difficult challenges is to help them explain the value that some of the extra curricular activities bring to the partnership.
Some of those are self evident, and by their very nature, nurture a relationship with house buyers and sellers that shows competence and exhibits product knowledge along with a willingness to share.
Others are not so obvious.
This is one of those!
In this article Chris is reporting some of the chatter taking place among past Presidents of the Utah Association of Realtors. (he is one, and I bet few people know it).
On it’s face it looks like it is intended to give a “heads up” to other Utah brokers. And it is & it does.
I’m sharing this with you all, so you can see that Chris Sloan is dedicated to the industry and is the kind of professional you will want to consider when selecting an agent to partner up with for your Tooele County real estate needs.
I guess you can say it’s promotion. And, you would be correct. But I need to do it. We all know Chris or Berna won’t.
Here is the letter I’m talking about:
First of all, in our Past Presidents Council meeting, we received a legal brief that in clouded a ton of national stuff. However, from a local perspective we were told that due to the number of social media posts disparaging different business models from some companies, those companies have started databases collecting and saving them.
I can imagine, but that doesn’t really matter in this case. I have a suggestion for all of you that are into social media. If you come across such a post, stay away from it! Don’t “like” it, don’t share it and don’t make a comment.
Rather than worrying about what another company or agent is doing in their business, focus on increasing your own “value proposition”. Make your own business model the best one for you! You’ll stay out of trouble that way.
Secondly, a heads up for those of you that like to share “coming soon” listings in your advertising (of any kind!). Next month in the NAR meetings in San Francisco, the Board of Directors will likely be voting on a new MLS rule that will require any such advertising to be listed on the MLS within 24 hrs of any ad. Sign in the yard? Get it on the MLS.
Facebook post? Get it on the MLS!
This concept is getting wide-ranging support from many folks. It will be a controversial change for some, and I expect some fun debate from the Board.
That said, if you have a comment or a thought on this policy change, please let me know before then!
Have a great day
