1. Service - It's all about you!
First and foremost is the level of service that you can expect from Monica as your REALTOR. She consistently goes beyond her clients' expectations. She's with you every step of the way. Her services include pre-marketing your home and preparing it for sale, providing the most consistent national and global exposure of your home, regular communications with you, follow up on all showings, negotiating the offer to obtain the best terms possible for you, detailed follow up with the buyer's agent, closing attorney, and other third parties to ensure a smooth due diligence and ultimate closing.
2. Internet Exposure
Your home's online exposure begins with a detailed entry on the local MLS and cascades to a network of local, national and global websites such as Zillow.com, Trulia.com, Realtor.com and, for luxury homes, global websites such as Mansionglobal.com. The benefit of this strategy extends your home's exposure to consumers in all corners of the globe, no matter what type of computer or smart device they use. Your home will also appear as a featured property on this website which, through SEO optimization and other marketing, drives consumers in all price ranges to the website. Homes of distinction will also be marketed by Monica with their own single property website.
3. Latest Technology and Social Media
Monica uses the latest technologies to better market your home and increase its exposure to potential buyers. Some of these include a home search App, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Google Analytics, Pay per Click marketing campaigns, email drip campaigns, a variety of lead and data management systems, and 3D virtual home tour technology such as Matterport tours. Social Media is a powerful marketing vehicle with massive global reach as well as the ability to engage and interact in real time, creating real, meaningful, and lasting connections. Monica has earned the National Association of Realtor's E-PRO designation and uses her acquired skills in social media platforms such as Facebook, Linkedin, Youtube, Instagram and Twitter to engage potential buyers interested in real estate in Southeastern NC.
4. Professional and Aerial Photography
The images of your home are of primary importance as that is the first impression that potential buyers will have of your home. High quality photos that make the most of your home's assets and features are essential. Monica employs the services of a professional photographer to ensure that the photos do justice to your home. Monica also uses cutting-edge drone photography to capture aerial images of the home to highlight its location and exterior features. Expect nothing less.
Videos allow prospective buyers to experience listings like never before. Monica embraces the use of video marketing for her distinctive listings.
6. Professional Measurements and Floor Plans
What size is your home? Monica does not use guess work when it comes to making representations about your home. For every listing of hers, she employs a professional to accurately measure your home. This level of detail often leads to more reported square feet for your home, thereby increasing its value. She'll also have a floor plan created as part of the marketing package on your home.
