Marketing Real Estate has changed so much over the last decade! There are so many amazing tools available now, and our goal is to offer our clients the most comprehensive listing package available in our area.
Regardless of the value of your home, everybody deserves world class marketing and service! We treat the marketing of all of our listings with the same way we treat a luxury property!
Here are some of the services we offer all our clients...
Professional Quality Photos
People shop with their eyes , therefore the photos of your home need to motivate potential Buyers to pick up the phone and book an appointment to view it. Blurry, low quality, poorly lit photos don't have the same impact or response as professional quality images do - so we don't list a property without them.

High Definition Video Walk Through Tours
The professional photos do a great job of showcasing the features of your home, but we also shoot a high definition video walk through tour of your home. This allows Buyers to get a great feel for the layout of your property before they step foot inside. Consider this an online open house, available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from anywhere in the world! It's incredibly effective, and seldom offered to Sellers in our area.

Social media is not a fad, it is here to stay. We have fully embraced social media and use it as a helpful tool to connect Buyers and Sellers. All of our listings are advertised on a variety of social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google +, and more to further increase your exposure!
We utilize numerous online ad sites to generate additional traffic for your listing including, Kijiji, Craigslist, Kelowna Now, Open House Kelowna, Zoocasa, Homes.com and more. Serious Buyers spend serious amounts of time looking at homes on lots of different websites, so we try to cover all the bases to make sure you home gets noticed!
Search Engine Optimization
When we list a new property, we always take the time to ensure that all of the important keys words are embedded into the listing, in order for the property to rank as high as possible on Google. We are fortunate to have the largest real estate network at my fingertips at RE/MAX. RE/MAX is the most recognized brand in the real estate industry, and as a result, our websites get considerably more traffic than our competition, which means more Buyers see your home. Exposure is paramount!
How most people live in a home, and how they ideally want to present it when selling are often 2 completely different things! We work with a home stager where necessary, to help get our properties ready for the market. We can send in our stager, at our cost, to give our clients some guidance and advice on how to prepare the property in a way that appeals to Buyers. This can make a huge difference in how the home photographs, and shows in person!

As more and more people are carrying smart phones in their pockets, consumers are spending less time sitting in front of a computer. We use a mobile texting service called Streettext which allows consumer to receive information about your home on their smartphone. In addition to that, this website (www.brendanstoneman.com) has also been optimized for smart phone use.
We have a full time graphic artist in our office that works to create attractive and engaging printed flyers for Buyers to take with them after they view your home. These flyers contain lots of high quality photos and all of the important information about your home.
The biggest complaint people have when they have their home on the market is poor or non-existent communication with their Realtor. We have put systems in place to ensure that that is never a complaint that one of our clients have. Email updates, phone calls, marketing reviews - you will never wondering what is happening with the sale of your home.
We take the time to contact the agents that showed your home to get feedback from their viewing. This information is very helpful as it gives us insight as to how the market is reacting to your property.
If you aren't quite ready to put your home on the market, but want to see what is going on in the market currently, you can sign up to receive information about homes in your neighborhood that are currently for sale or have recently sold - this info is sent directly to your email, no spam, unsubscribe any time. It's a great way to keep tabs on the market when you are getting ready to sell, and it is an important tool we use to keep our sellers informed while we have their home for sale.
We would be happy to provide you with some more information regarding the value of your home - to book an appointment simply fill out the form below and we will provide you with a FREE, no obligation market evaluation.
We look forward to meeting you!
