Me … Your Agent
And here I am, me, estate agent, social networking enthusiast, virgin blogger, mountain bike lover, husband, “stunt double” …. just your regular guy I suppose …. I do all my own stunts!
I have been in the Real Estate industry since 2005 and I am still learning something new every day. Real Estate is probably one of the most volatile industries at the moment with external economic factors playing a huge role and there is not much we can do about it …. not to mention the National Credit Act, although not a bad thing, it came and turned the property market on its head and we are slowly but surely trying to get it back on its feet again.
Financial institutions (Banks) are extremely strict in their lending policies and criteria …… but still, people are buying and getting finance every day.
Knowing all of this we need to start thinking out of the box when it comes to marketing and advertising. We need to make use of the NEW tools around us such as social media platforms and blogs ….. and we need to NETWORK. Focus needs to be on our local communities where our buyers and sellers come from. So here we go! You can find me right here (follow my blog posts) or on Facebook and twitter.
If I am not selling houses, I am riding my mountain bike somewhere in The Cradle or spending time with friends and family, braaing etc etc etc …. as we do!
Let’s not waste any more time …… let’s go sell some houses, ride some sigle tracks, braai some steaks and take some more selfies in the process ……. You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram at @marnusuragent
