2. Photography & Video

How to photograph your home to sell quickly and for top dollar.
Market your home properly with great photography


Great marketing starts with Professional Photography. We live in a digital world where first impressions are more important than ever. The proper visual presentation of your listing is a keystone to our success. We invest in professional, high-quality photography to ensure that your home is showcased to its best effect. The upgrades and details you’ve put so much thought into over the years will be framed beautifully for maximum appeal.


In today’s digital age, captivating video tours are essential for showcasing your home’s unique features and capturing the attention of potential buyers. We, Geoff and Dore Baker understand the power of video in real estate marketing and are committed to providing top-notch video tours for our property listings. With a focus on highlighting the property’s best aspects, our professional videos offer a dynamic and immersive experience for viewers. From aerial drone footage to interior walkthroughs, we ensure that your home is presented in the best possible light, allowing buyers to envision themselves living in the space. We create compelling video tours that set your listing apart and attract serious buyers.

In today’s busy world, buyers want to experience a property in less than 60 seconds.

If they like what they see, they’ll spend the time to check out all the photos and really dive into the write-up. A well done video is like an amazing appetizer that sparks the interest of a hungry diner.

3. Digital & Social Media Marketing

That’s why we invest in targeted boosting to the demographics that make the most sense for your home. Whether we’re aiming to attract first time buyers or baby boomers looking to downsize, we’ll make sure your listing posts are seen by the most likely buyer pool.

Email Marketing Campaigns

4. Print & Direct Mail Marketing

Your home will have full-color, brochure-style flyers and mailers created by our graphic designer.

As experienced real estate agents, we understand the power of quality brochures and mailers in effectively marketing your home. Our dedicated graphic designer creates full-color, brochure-style flyers that showcase your property’s best features and amenities. These professionally crafted materials are made available to prospective buyers who visit your property, providing them with a detailed overview of your home.

In addition to brochures, we utilize targeted direct mail marketing to reach hundreds of residents in your area. These mailers serve as a valuable tool to generate interest and attract potential buyers to your listing. It’s not uncommon for buyers to be referred to your home by neighbors who have received our eye-catching mailers, further expanding the reach of our marketing efforts.

5. Creating An Open House Schedule

From the eye-catching flags at the curb, to the unique refreshments, our open house events are memorable.

No matter the theme, prospective buyers will be treated to a warm and welcoming feeling – their first happy memory in what might become their future home. We personally invite neighbors to an exclusive viewing for the first hour, then open your home to the public for an additional two to three hours. Open houses are often seen as being less formal than requesting a showing through an agent.

Some buyers prefer this as a more accessible, less pressured option.
