MARKETING INFLUENTIAL CONNECTIONS
Social Media Content marketing is the way consumers seek information. Social media is a vital tool in this space for luxury brands to provide their content to their loyal following as well as to attract new connections. Influential, well-connected buyers like to engage directly with their favorite brands, looking at unique photos, videos and articles with the ability to respond and share the content with their circles. We are not simply â€œpostingâ€? on social media. We are nurturing a highly engaged group of opinion-makers with exclusive content on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest and our very own Extraordinary Living Blog. We know that our social content marketing approach works because Facebook is the top referring source of traffic to sothebysrealty.com.
Video: The Quintessential Content Home buyers are engaging with video in every element of their online experience â€“on websites, social networks, and their connected TVs. Research tells us that the longer consumers are on a website, the more likely they are to take action and inquire about a property. Video provides a truly immersive and engaging experience for the consumer and remains the cornerstone of our content strategy for sothebysrealty.com.
AN IMMERSIVE EXPERIENCE
sothebysrealty.com sothebysrealty.com attracts more consumers to search, view and inquire than any other luxury real estate website. Millions of viewers immerse themselves in our collection of vibrant, full screen high definition videos and photography. sothebysrealty.com also offers 3D and Virtual Reality Tours, 17 languages and featured lifestyle and destination content.

Influencing the Sale of Your Property Although the listing price you place on your property will influence its sale, there are many other factors that come into play. Some of these factors are within your control, others are not. Examples include: FACTORS NOT WITHIN YOUR CONTROL: • Your property’s location • Recent property market values • Expired listings with multiple price revisions • Economic and housing marketing conditions • Absorption rate
FACTORS WITHIN YOUR CONTROL: • The listing presentation price and terms of sale • Your property’s distinctive and compelling attributes • The physical condition of your property (home and grounds) • The ready access to your property for showing • The selection of the real estate sales professional you chose to represent you and your home
There are many factors, including market research, to assist in determining Opinion of Value. Our Comparative Market Analysis considers a variety of metrics including recent transfers, active listings and economic housing market conditions. Ultimately the selling price will be determined not only by comparable properties but how buyers view your property to establish its “worth.”

What Clients are Saying: April 12th, 2017 - I've known Dan Spano for 4 years now and he has always been available to answer any of my questions and give me advice. I bought my first investment property through Dan at age 24 and although I was inexperienced, Dan was always looking out for me and guiding me through the whole process. I recently sold that property making a very generous ROI and Dan once again was on top of everything. He helped negotiate the best deal possible with the buyers and arrange for any repairs that needed to be completed before the sale. Although I do not live in Tahoe, Dan has been my eyes and ears and I trust him 100. He has vast knowledge of the area and connections with all the services you might be in need of in your buying or selling process. Dan is a loyal and honest person. I would recommend Dan to anybody who is looking to buy or sell a home in Tahoe. -Jean C. September 12th, 2016 - Quite simply, we couldn't be happier with Dan. He is not only an outstanding broker but also a person of exceptional character. His extensive knowledge of the Tahoe basin and his insights regarding each community allowed us to quickly identify the areas that were a good fit for us and ultimately to prepare a competitive offer on our new home. What really impressed us was Dan's involvement after we entered escrow. We encountered several issues including inaccurate property line records, funding delays, TRPA regulations and more. He remained patient and reassuring through it all and never lost confidence in the ability to close the transaction. In every event, Dan immersed himself in the issue and engaged his extensive network of community resources to resolve the issue. Throughout it all, he maintained the confidence of the sellers and their agent despite several extensions of the escrow period. If you want to purchase a home in Tahoe, you should talk with Dan. -Al
February 18, 2016 - Dan was with us all the way through the selling process. He advised us on pricing and changes to the listing as appropriate. He made suggestions about how best to prepare the home for showing and aggressively marketed the home. He successfully negotiated the final selling price with the buyer and their agent. Dan's knowledge of the Tahoe area is second to none. I highly recommend him! -Leigh and Leola November 20, 2015 - We could not have hoped for a more trusted, thorough and professional Realtor than Dan. We purchased a new construction home in SLT while we were living in the Bay Area. Dan was our eyes and ears during this transaction which was invaluable as being absent buyers. Dan also helped facilitate upgrades to the home and yard that we wanted to make and the results were perfect. If we ever purchase another property in SLT it will be with Dan. We highly recommend him to all buyers and sellers in SLT. -Evan & Dr. Kelly October 9, 2015 - Dear Dan: I just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much I appreciated you and your office's assistance in selling our family cabin in South Lake Tahoe this Fall. Although you were dealing with two different family members as sellers, and I live in Southern California, you were able to keep the process smooth and constantly moving forward. As a lawyer I am all too familiar with all the things that can go wrong with a California real estate transaction, particularly in a resort area. Thank you again for your prompt, professional handling of our sale. -Patricia A. F September 2, 2015 - Dan's website and aerial tour of lake front Lake Tahoe were excellent. Allowed us to understand characteristics of the different lake front neighborhoods. We had very specific criteria and Dan listened well, sourced the market and found 4 properties that met our requirements. When we arrived in Tahoe, Dan was prepared and well organized. He was efficient and very respectful of our time. In the course of three days, we made two offers. Within in two days, we had an accepted offer at a price that exceeded our expectations. Dan is honest, personable, hard working and very knowledgeable. We would recommend Dan without hesitation. -Jeff G. December 14, 2014 - Dan is a true advocate for his clients in the home purchase process. He goes above and beyond before and after escrow. We were a part of his email list for a few months and really appreciate the level of detail on listed properties. Once we found a property we wanted to see, Dan met us with research and deep local knowledge in tow. He made the offer and negotiation process as painless as possible and ensured that no stone was unturned during inspections. The best part he is still in active contact with us after close to ensure that any post-escrow repairs get done and to be our extra set of eyes on the property when we are away. In addition to being a seasoned agent/broker in Tahoe, he has an awesome team and expanded network of subject matter experts. We are so fortunate to work with him! He is honest and his wanting to help in any way possible comes from a genuine place. He treats us like close friends instead of clients and we know that he is in for the long haul. And that is what sets him apart from the rest. -Teresa and Maulie Read all of Dan's reviews!
