â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe that local newspaper advertising is essential to my real estate business.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mary Gilles There is something tangible and personal about holding the paper over your morning coffee that cannot be replaced by surfing the net. The paper provides a much richer experience because it is one of the key elements that define a community. Home buyers are buying the community as much as the house they are seeking. The importance of print advertising was never more apparent until recently when a luxury property I was preparing for the market was advertised in the Weekly and the Almanac. Soon after the ad appeared, we sold the home to the buyer who saw the ad and called her agent asking to see the home. Just like that. This is why I will continue to make advertising in the Weekly and the Almanac a key part of my marketing plan.
