I had just become a licensed Realtor. In 1990, communication was limited to land-lines, fax machines, a walk down the block to the Notary’s office, or a yell down the hall to the next Realtor’s office to see what hot leads they might have. Cell phones were a BIG deal then, both literally, figuratively & certainly economically, costing thousands of dollars for a unit that could do duty as a door stop, a structural support or a defensive weapon. The MLS was only in the hands of Realtors, fresh tear-off sheets were couriered daily and then came The Big Move to weekly catalogues that cost and weighed a ton. Yup, those were the days.
Today, anyone over the age of 2 either owns their own cell phone or knows how to use one. In addition, the wireless & paperless world continues to change so much of what we all do, and how we do it. In real estate we are at constant risk of being over-run by those that can social market like crazy but know very little about the actual ‘dirt, space & improvements’ that make up real estate, not to mention the many complexities that surround any particular parcel specific to your own real estate need. We see it daily.
In our desire to stay current & connected to our Clients, we’ve just kicked off a new website at neufeldrealestate.ca, which includes some pretty trendy interactive property search features! In addition you can find us on Facebook at Neufeld Real Estate. So if you find us there and give us a ‘Like’ we’ll enter your name into a CONTEST DRAW for a $100 Keg Gift Card. ALSO, if you’re a past Client and leave a review, we’ll enter your name again! I know, right? Small effort on your part, big, BIG opportunity! Thanks for checking us out on Facebook! We look forward to that being an avenue for more engagement & interaction with our clients!
Oh – and if you’re reading this newsletter, we’d love to know if this was sent to an e-mail address you actually use! We’ve gone deep, deep in the past to the dawn of e-mail time to get some of your addresses, and would love to update our records, assuming you still want to hear from us! If you’d prefer this sent to another account, send us a note, we’ll make the change.
Remember that we’re always here for your real estate needs! We are professional marketers, skilled, experienced, negotiators who offer expert knowledge; ask around, check out our testimonials. We handle sales, purchases, estates, land development analysis, investment advice & referral service to other communities. If we don’t have a ‘tip of the tongue’ answer or know where to get it in short order, then we know someone that we trust that can take care of you.
A reminder……..if you ever get mail or email from us that you don’t want, or are tired of seeing either this E-Newsletter or our really quite remarkable paper newsletter in your mail, please do let us know! We want to be a blessing, not an annoyance.
Here’s to Spring 2018!!
