“He is AMAZING. We highly recommend him as a trusted realtor and a great person!”
Our family was looking to purchase land and had never done so in the past. Hence, we needed someone to guide us through the process. We came across Jonathan’s profile, met him, and knew instantly that he was the best person for the job.
Jonathan was knowledgeable, understanding, informed, and up-front about each item. He guided us through extensive questions we had about purchasing land, even called county authorities, met us at the site numerous times for various follow ups, and put us in touch with his contacts to help expedite the process of doing due diligence. He is a great listener, very patient, and has your best interest in mind. He isn’t trying to play games or just sell you on something.
We truly could not have found our property without Jonathan. He provided step by step support and explained the process from starting our search to closing on the property. He is AMAZING. We highly recommend him as a trusted realtor and a great person!
Have you ever paid for a service only to experience buyer’s remorse?
In my experience, buyer’s remorse stems from a lack or accountability, poor communication, or halfhearted delivery of the service.
That’s why I believe it’s important to back up a service offering with a guarantee.
My guarantee is that I will get your property seen by at least 20,000 sets of eyes during the first two weeks on the market.
If I don’t accomplish that, I will donate $1,000 to the charity of your choice, and you can cancel your listing free of charge.
Of course, the hard work doesn’t stop there. For the duration of the listing I will send you weekly reports with summary statistics quantifying the results of my marketing efforts. I will check in regularly, and I will be easily accessible by phone, text, email, or video chat.
I also promise to not hand you off to a personal assistant.
I don’t know about you, but it really frustrates me when I sign up for a service with a particular person, and then I get handed off to their assistant.
More and more, I see this happening in the real estate industry. Everyone’s time is so “valuable” that they try to outsource everything to their assistants, the end result being a reduced quality of service for the client.
That will not happen with me. If we decide to work together, I promise to give you my undivided attention, and you will be dealing with me and only me.
What will I do to sell your land?
You can download my full land sale marketing plan here, but here’s a short summary of my strategy for selling land and rural properties in Northern Virginia…
Preparing your property for sale
To make sure your property is presented to its best advantage, I will schedule an initial consultation to understand your objectives and identify the unique selling features of your property.
Next, I will spend a few days conducting research at the county health, planning, and zoning departments to verify facts, obtain copies of archived records, and identify any challenges that might need to be addressed before we put your property on the market.
Then I will prepare a summary and evaluation of comparable sales, and we will have a follow up meeting to discuss the results and finalize the marketing strategy.
High quality marketing materials
The quality of marketing materials has a huge impact on how your property is perceived in the market place.
To position your property in the best light, I will pay to have your property professionally photographed, and I will produce a professional aerial video for social media advertising placements.
Where your property is advertised is just as important as the quality of the marketing materials.
As a member of the Realtors Land Institute, the Land.com network, and McEnearney Associates’ Land, Farms, and Estates Division, I can guarantee your property will be advertised on the right platforms and seen the right people.
Social media advertising
Did you know video tours increase listing traffic by 400 percent!?
And did you know 77 percent of today’s real estate shoppers rely on social media during their property search!?
In other words, if your real estate agent isn’t using video and social media to advertise your property, then you’re missing out on a HUGE audience.
My full land sale marketing plan explains exactly what I will do to get your property seen by thousands of social media users every day.
Conventional marketing activities
Call me a dinosaur, but I still believe people direct mail is a powerful marketing tool. In fact, as more and more businesses turn to digital marketing, mail boxes around the country are begging for real mail!
Not to mention, there are still plenty of people out there who look forward to the simple pleasure of checking their mail each day. Let’s use that to your advantage!
I will also place classified ads in local newspapers and gazettes, install “for sale” signs on your property, and present your property to my colleagues during weekly internal sales meetings.
REMEMBER: This is just a short summary of what I will do to sell your property.
