Inviting other Realtors to view a home allows them to learn about a home's features and share their personal knowledge with home buyers instead of peripheral knowledge.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Luxury Realtors and their home buyers will enjoy hors d'oeuvres and wine while viewing 12 individually unique homes in the Spanish Oaks' gated, golf course community this Wednesday, May 8, from 5 till 8 pm, during an Invitation Only Realtor Open House coordinated by Shannon T. Schmitz with the Shannon Schmitz Group of Austin Portfolio Real Estate.
"Open houses help bring in buyers, at least in most cases, but when a home owners' associations have limits for such public access then we have to be creative in how we market homes priced over $1 million," replied Kimberly Montonati with the Shannon Schmitz Group. "Invitation only events, such as this one, comply with the HOA's rules and are the perfect venue for featuring homes to other realtors and qualified home buyers."
The power of presenting multiple homes during such events has proven success, even though there is considerable coordination involved. Every realtor with a listing in Spanish Oaks was invited to participate, but those with the highest sales volumes in selling Spanish Oaks real estate were the ones who set about working together for the benefit of their home sellers, thus furthering their reputations of building relationships to sell real estate.
"Real estate professionals believe in working together," said Shannon Schmitx, "as through making strong connections with others in our communities, we can help our home sellers. Inviting other realtors to view a home allows them to learn about a home's features and share their personal knowledge with home buyers instead of peripheral knowledge. Kimberly and I both live in Spanish Oaks and this allows us detailed knowledge of our community.”
Realtors are in the business of making connections. Such connections are an important component of a realtor’s ability to sell a home. "I'm excited to work with Shannon and the other realtors to showcase our Spanish Oaks listings," remarked Sandy Cary, one of the participating realtors. "Most of us involved have well established professional relationships with each other and all of us have strong reputations of selling Spanish Oaks real estate."
These masterpieces in architectural design include dramatic pools, awe-inspiring views, golf course frontage, rainwater collection systems, and the security of living in one of Austin's most notable private communities. The custom, well-crafted, and unique homes being presented range in price from $685,000 (one of the luxury townhouse style condos) to $3,395,000 (a spacious 8,429 square foot estate home). The old adage of "seeing is believing" has never been truer concerning these luxury homes. If you are relocating to Austin, considering a second home in Austin, or are living in Austin and ready to move into a new residence and are interested in receiving an invitation for this private event, please contact any of the participating realtors.
Not included in this event, but available for viewing are custom home lots to construct your own architecturally designed home in Spanish Oaks, many range in size, location, and benefits. Not every home or lot in Spanish Oaks is listed in the MLS; some are offered only via Private Sale, further emphasizing the need for realtors to network and communicate new homes available for sale in their market.
“This is a must attend event,” stated Shannon Schmitz, “especially if you are a Realtor with home buyers considering Spanish Oaks or are a home buyer interested in knowing more about the homes available in Spanish Oaks.”
