Luxury Real Estate Begins with People and Ends with Brand

The DNA of a luxury brand is a set of characteristics and attributes that define its identity and set it apart from other brands. Luxury means that price does not matter; it’s more about aligning the customer with the treatment and lifestyle they want for themselves. Brands don’t do that; great agents do that.

The Future Role of the Photographer in MLS Listings

The focus of the multiple listing service companies across America has been on the proper licensing of photography. The person taking the media – either photo or video - owns it unless you have an agreement otherwise. They license the media for a specific use. When it is contributed to the MLS compilation, the MLS requires a limited, perpetual license for MLS purposes.

Display Listing Broker Attribution At All Times

There is a strange and incongruent set of policies, rules, and customs in real estate that apply to the display of broker attribution on listings. State laws regulate broker attribution on signs and in advertising. In most markets today, client servicing tools used by agents to work with homebuyers are afforded the opportunity through rules and policies to deprecate (remove) the broker attribution entirely.

Multiple Brokerage Applications Break the Consumer Relationship

Imagine the experience for the consumer; you buy or sell a home, and you get bombarded every month with pieces of information from each of these broker and agent application. Be careful whenever you reach out to a client - you DO NOT want your efforts to stay connected to result in a negative experience and ultimately being spam blocked.

The Children Are the Future

We are in a unique period of time in business. WAV Group has been spending a lot of time in Web3 and it is a steep learning curve. What is clear to me when meeting with senior executives in marketing and communications projects for NFT drops, is that most seasoned execs are clueless about this new genre of marketing.

Delta Media’s “Fresh” take on real estate advertising

Every so often, a real estate-related advertising campaign emerges that cuts through the clutter to make a strong audience connection. Not too long ago, Zillow, like the old AT&T tv ads, tugged at our homeownership heartstrings. The National Association of Realtors' ads used fictional Realtor Phil Dunphy from Modern Family to make us laugh. Go back 30 years to find the groundbreaking Great Western Bank commercials featuring Dennis Weaver. These brilliant TV ads spoke to both a B2B audience (Realtors) and B2C (consumers) with the same powerful "use a Realtor" message. My favorite one has Dennis walking in front of [...]
