Well if you have not guessed it yet the new website is upon us and it is - awesome. Ya I know it's my site and I have to say it - but I mean it. I want you to check out everything the site has to offer. Sure I would love to list your home or help you buy a new one but this time the reason I want you to check it out is I want to hear from you. I want to know what you think about it - good and bad and what you want to see to make it easier for you. How to make it "the" place you want to go for Real Estate information. I know - sounds like a tall order but it's already the place I want to go...and I am a full time professional Realtor.
I have a particularly good team of IT people helping me but all of our combined brain power focused day and night can't come up with what you are thinking. I can sit all day thinking about things I would like to do on this website, for you and truthfully I may have done just that a time or two - but it is not done.
Here are a few of the things I hope you will take time to really check out.
The menu will be tuned over the month of October 2010 but in general you should be able to get anywhere on the site by using the simple menu at the top of the page. The menu items are simple and direct and get you to what you want to see not what I think you should see.
My focus is all about finding you a home or getting your home found by a potential buyer. This is setup for people at all levels of technical knowledge.
Simple Search - this search got it's name for a reason. At the top of the page all you have to do is enter a couple very basic search criteria like say.....price and....well truthfully taht would be enough to get you going. Click on search and your into an average of 300 listings here in Campbell River and area. From there you will find lots of easy ways to search in more detail, save your searches for reference later and contact me direct to arrange a showing or ask a questions. It's simple.....
Google Map Search - one of my new favourites comes directly from your comments. The number one request last year was to have a search for a specific area. With the new Google Map Search you can do just that. Pull up the map of Campbell River, zero in on an area of Campbell River, a street of Campbell River and even a specific house - just double click the map to zoom in to the area you want to be in.
Mobile Search - oh yes we know the statistics. 80% of Real Estate is now using the internet in their transaction. We know that 80% of you are using it - or you would not be here but we also know that about 50% of those people are now using internet enabled devices like, Iphones and Android phones. Well we are ready for you too. This new system for mobile phones is as simple as it gets. Click on the link on the front page and a very simple screen comes up and asks you where you want me to send the link to the sites Mobile access. You say email or your phone number and you automatically get the link sent to you. You don't have to remember anything just click on the link when it arrives and away you go. Ya - it's that easy. I am not even going to get into all the cool stuff it does once you start using it but it is all explained on the webpage when you get started. Even if your not using a mobile device just go read about it - it's awesome!
Buyer and Seller information - in addition to this I am also posting the Buyer and Seller packages in the same area. This is a simple way that we can get started working together and making buying or selling your home an enjoyable experience. No guess work, no wondering what is next.
Well that is enough for now but over the next few articles I will jump deeper into each section so you can reference it anytime on this blog.
Take care and call me - I love Real Estate and I think you will too!
