On May 8th Residential Properties agents gathered from our five current offices across the state for a company meeting to share our success for the first quarter-plus of the year. Thanks to meeting sponsor Homestar Mortgage, Residential Properties had the honor of hosting special guest presenter Seth Price.
Seth has been a consultant for over 300 companies and is currently a VP at Placester, home of the Real Estate Marketing Academy. Seth is a digital marketing specialist and came here to speak on personal branding in this ever-changing environment.
Steve Tetzner, of Homestar Mortgage, made the event memorable by providing all attendants with a free copy of Seth’s book The Road to Recognition.
Steve Tetzner and Homestar Mortgage gave away Red Sox tickets and Theatre by the Sea passes to two lucky agents. Ted Bourque, a Sales Associate on the Antrop and Williamson team out of RPL’s Cumberland office won the Red Sox tickets, while Barrington Sales Associate Bonnie Koppelman won the theatre passes.
In Seth’s presentation, he discussed how agents must grow their brand despite the constant technological distractions around us. Seth continued on to say that agents need to go beyond that initial cup of coffee pitch and keep connections going even when people aren’t currently looking to buy or sell.
When it comes to building your personal brand some of Seth’s biggest points talked about creating an authentic identity:
• Focus on who you truly are
• Be genuine when writing online, and not robotic. Make sure you can send your writing to your best friend.
• When someone asks you a question, answer it so well that they share that answer.
After Seth’s presentation he led a marketing panel with Ryan Antrop of our Cumberland Office; Stephen Readey, Manager of our in-house Marketing and Technology Department; and James LeGeros, RPL’s IT Lead. Seth spoke about the incredible benefits that come with a marketing team and the fact that Residential Properties has an in-house team is a unique resource for our agents. Steve and James spoke about the many tools RPL offers and how they help agents to wield technology and grow their personal brand. Ryan Antrop and his team are constantly utilizing the department to help sell themselves and to successfully buy and sell homes.
Residential Properties wants to thank Seth Price for his presentation and would like to recommend his book and talks to anyone who was not at our meeting, visit him at SethPrice.net. We would also once again like to thank Steve Tetzner and Homestar Mortgage for sponsoring this event and all of the fine work his team does for us.
We hope to see you at our next meeting!
On International Women’s Day, we thought it would be nice to bring to the public’s attention an amazing event that is honoring one of Residential Properties’ “Founding Mothers.” Liz Chace was a founding member of Residential Properties when the company first opened its doors in 1981 and was a strong influence in growing what was then an all-women company until her retirement in 1997. Since then, Liz has continued to inspire young girls and women and has been a staunch supporter of Sophia Academy’s mission to “change the lives of girls from low-income homes through an empowering middle school education”.
On Thursday, May 10th Sophia Academy will honor Liz Chace at their 2018 Women of Wisdom Gala. The event will begin at 5:30 PM with a VIP reception and continue with a speaking program and auction before the celebration and dinner at 7:30 PM. The entire gala will take place at the WaterFire Arts Center at 475 Valley Street in Providence.
To honor and support this great woman and organization you can donate to the Sophia Academy. For more information please check out the brochure HERE and to get a glimpse at all the great work the Sophia Academy accomplishes, head to their website at Sophia-academy.org.
Residential Properties is proud to sponsor this event and to have so many great women involved in the past, present, and future of this company.
