George is a natural leader in the world of real estate marketing. Having worked with various advertising agencies helping design effective marketing campaigns for major builders, to being self taught building websites for various Windermere offices and Northwest builders, George understands what it takes to get maximum market exposure in today’s real estate market. George also worked with several Award Winning Designers targeting specific buyer profile types staging model homes in new home communities he marketed.
George’s unique online marketing approach exposes the properties he represents to a wider buyer market targeting the United States and beyond. Because a large percentage of local real estate sales are made to people that live outside the immediate area, George promotes his listings to specific areas including California, Washington, Utah, Oregon and East Coast Markets. He also targets premier agents around the United States.
They say selling real estate is all about Location, Location, Location, but when it comes to selling real estate in a resort type community it’s more about the location of a potential buyer that needs to be the focus in creating a sale.
