Birch Grove Open House Results

bg-long-grassy-yard-560-sold
What happened at your last Grand Opening Open House? Well, I’m glad you asked. In September we held our Grand Opening at Birch Grove in Terra Vista, another Taco Edition. If you have followed our recent sales you could probably predict the results – sold in 4 hours for thousands over recent comps. The open house was seen by almost 300 guests and 17 offers were received.

In case you missed the open house here is a video that we had a professional movie company shoot at the event.

The flash mob was planned although many people from the crowd joined in spontaneously. The amount of people who came to the open house was typical (you would know that if I sold your house) and a result of the outside-of-the-box marketing we do on each and every listing. We are going to be using this video as part of the Yesin7days training we will be teaching to other agents beginning next year.

Who do you know that’s getting ready to buy or sell? Would you like to be their hero and save them from waiting on the same old traditional agent marketing? Would they love to have their home sold quickly for more than the asking price? Send them this blog post and tell them to call Jenean right away. It’s always nice to share good things with friends. Here’s Jenean’s number (949) 583-1331.

Feel free to share this with anyone you know who may be looking to buy or sell a home anytime soon.
