ONLINE LOCAL, NATIONAL & WORLDWIDE EXPOSURE
Our global media plan focuses on high-impact media partners such as the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times, as well as prestigious lifestyle, home and architectural publications including Architectural Digest, Dwell and Elle Décor. Our ads on these print and digital publications educate consumers about the brand, showcase unique properties and drive visits to our website sothebysrealty.com. No local real estate brokerage has access to the high number impressions and quality exposure our media plan provides.
Once your home is listed on sothebysrealty.com, it will be instantly marketed on more than 140 websites all over the world. We call this a cascading platform, where each of these 140 websites combines the content and functionality of sothebysrealty.com, but with the added value of expanding exposure on a local websites maintained by Sotheby’s International Realty affiliated companies.
A plan to successfully market a home includes a combination of powerful interactive and direct mail efforts to generate additional consumer interest both locally and globally. In addition to a vast digital and media campaign, a series of professionally designed brochures, postcards and email templates are available and easily customizable. A newsletter promotes significant sales throughout the network. This illustrates an additional way in which the Sotheby’s International Realty brand promotes the properties we represent to the most qualified buyers around the world.
HD DRONE VIDEOS
Aerial videography and photography are the new standard for high-end real estate marketing. Drone aerial photography combined with traditional real estate photography is a virtual walk-through. Drone aerial photography allows buyers to make an emotional connection to the property.
The visual advantages of camera drones have most impacted the way that luxury homes are presented on the MLS and on websites.
Buyers of multi-million dollar homes often shop online first, so they expect high-quality photography and video in the online listing or they won’t bite.
Whether it’s to highlight the waterfront view, a gorgeous garden, or a really cool swimming pool, aerial drone photography captures the beauty and the utility of a home far better than ground-based photography or video can.
SOCIAL MEDIA MARKETING
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 “posting” 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.

Home staging is a strategic marketing tool designed to show a property in its best possible light. Staging is what you do after you’ve cleaned, decluttered, painted, made minor repairs; it’s all about adding the small details and dressing the house for sale. While home staging is in part about showing a property in its best possible light, it can also help potential buyers imagine themselves in the space.
Per the Real Estate Staging Association, statistics prove that staging a house works.
A house that shows well will sell quickly. First impressions count, show buyers the potential. Hiring a professional Home Stager is one of the best investments a seller can make. Fitzgerald Luxury Group can offer professional assistance to help you complete your staging project.
