There are several marketing strategies that I use with each home I list for sale.  To be a top listing agent in Beaumont, Lumberton, Orange or any part of Southeast Texas for that matter, you have to know how to effectively market a property to reach the most potential buyers.  

More buyers = more offers = best price for the seller.  

To put a home in the MLS is not enough!  The quality of photos is critical.  Have you looked at some of the real estate photos out there?  There are some bad ones.  Staging a home is important.  Colors, furniture arrangement, clutter all have an impact on the buyers looking at your home online.  

Three dimensional tours are used by the top agents in Beaumont, Lumberton, and Orange.  When you are ready to list your home ask any agent you interview what marketing strategy they will use to expose your home to the most buyers.  

If you are thinking of selling your home and are ready to talk to a top REALTOR then contact me.  You can reach me on the blog or by text.  I specialize in helping people sell their homes and my top priorities are high level marketing and outstanding customer service.  



Hello Country Living. 8.9 Acres. 9057 Hwy 12, Orange, Texas

3D photo tours are the coolest way to tour a home without actually being there.  Take a look at this  Country Modern Architecture with 3/4 wrap around porches, a private breezeway with 2749 SF of living space and approximately 500 SQFT of a partially finished bonus room just waiting for a new owner to finish the way they want it.

Why Hasn't This House Sold?

Why Hasn't This House Sold?

Sometimes a listing that should sell quickly doesn't.  

This is a remodeled, move in ready home just off Tram Road in Beaumont.  It has 1542 square feet of heated and cooled living space.  It has 1/3 of an acre.  It has a workshop/storeage building in the back.  The architectural shingle roof was put on in 2017.  

There should be a line of buyers waiting to buy this one.
