Thanks to all of you who have referred your friends and family to us in 2017, this last year has been a year of growth for our team. We truly appreciate your trust in us, and we'll do our best to keep earning it - one client at a time. Thank you for making 2017 our best year ever :)
As you've helped our business grow, we've been growing in other ways that will help us serve you better in the coming year. Here are a few of the ways we've grown for the better in 2017.
2017: A year of Growth for Mad City Dream Homes
#1: We've hired Kara Thomas as the newest agent on our team.Kara is an experienced, hard-working and service-oriented agent who has proven to be a great addition to our group. We now have 5 very capable agents on the team who work together to meet the needs of our clients. With Kara on board, we've improved our ability to cover for each other and ensure your needs are always met with timely and professional service.
#2: We've hired Samantha Haas, a talented marketing specialist.Samantha is a gifted writer and photographer. With her unique skill set, we're able to market our listings more effectively and creatively. Samantha has a knack for telling the story behind a unique, historic, or luxury home. Sam's unique abilities allow us to create marketing content that reaches a very specific, target audience.
#3: We've grown our pool of professional stagers. Depending on your specific staging needs, we now refer you to either Debbie Lea, The Cozy Home, or Brook Furniture Rental. Each stager has specific strengths and niches that they serve very well. Remember, our staging services are included as a standard benefit in our marketing plan.
#4: We've grown our pool of professional photographers. Beau Meyer, Justin Lackner, and VRX Media produce some amazing listing photos. Similar to staging, we hire the photographers who are the best fit for your listing. Professional photos are another standard benefit in our marketing plan, and we schedule as many photo shoots as needed in order to get your listing pictures just right.
#5: We've launched a monthly newsletter. Our newsletter keeps you up-to-date on the latest real estate trends in the Madison area. Each issue includes timely buying tips, selling tips, and market updates. The newsletter also promotes the fun events going on each month in the greater Madison area.
#6: We've improved our monthly updates on the Madison area real estate market. Our expanded reports give you the information you need to make sound decisions in our fast-changing market.
#7: We've deepened our commitment to training and education. We regularly participate in coaching and training programs. We also meet weekly to discuss what's working and what's not working for buyers and sellers in our fast-paced market.
#8: We're publishing our 2018 home-selling and home-buying guides very soon. Each guide is designed to help you, your friends and family achieve your real estate goals in 2018. We're looking forward to publishing both guides and getting your feedback on them.
Through all of this growth we've kept our team together without any turnover. Chris Venden, Tammy Steiner, Shelley Lazzareschi, Joe Molloy, and Laura Kocum have all earned another year of experience working in the real estate industry. Individually, each is a true pro with amazing gifts and talents. Collectively, we are even better as a team. It is a true privilege to be associated with Mad City Dream Homes. Thank you once again for the trust you place in us. We look forward to serving you, your friends, and family in 2018!
