Pat Kennedy - Your Washington, DC Real Estate Connection


Please Welcome Piers Lamb to Active Rain!

Evers & Company's Art Director, Piers Lamb, has made his blogging debut on Active Rain!

Each time we get a new listing, Piers does a photo shoot he can head back to the office to create a wonderful flyer and post cards to mail out to the neighbors or our sphere of influence.  And he is really a gifted photographer and layout guy. 

And lately, he's gone beyond that, helping each of us with branding ourselves and finding innovative ways to market us and our listings. 

When I first spoke to our broker and company owner, Donna Evers, about the possibility of coming to work for our firm, it was Piers' marketing pieces that immediately convinced me that it would be a good idea.

He accepted Catarina Bannier's invitation to blog, and he will be bringing us great tps on how to take better photos.  And I'm sure he'll come up with lots of other fun stuff, too!

So Piers!  Welcome to Active Rain!  And blog on!

Alternative Business Models for Realtors
In the late 1980’s, I adopted an “alternative” business plan. I was working for Shannon & Luchs, which was one of the two largest firms in the area, and I decided to make buyer brokerage the mainstay of my business plan. My broker freaked, “You… more
Limited Service Agents And Procuring Cause
It's easy to imagine how an Internet based real estate company in, say New Jersey, could get licensed in Nebraska and have clients who list their houses. It's really kind of a hybrid FSBO for the seller. The seller gets a hefty discount on the… more
Smokers Are Not Flirt Worthy!
I've had a couple of clients recently who have been, yes, smokers. Now, I must admit that I, in fact, used to smoke. I finally had to quit when I went to work for Ralph Nader after I finished college. He actually sent me to SmokeEnders, and… more
My Pet Peeve Of The Day!
It was a pretty cute house, vacant and on electronic lockbox. Box near the side door on the right side of the house facing the street. OK, that sounds pretty easy. I meet my buyer at the house, pull out my little magic lock box opener, and… more
My Entourage
It's Saturday night, and I'm at home reading The Missing Manual for Office 2004 for Mac. I bought the book this week to learn more about Entourage, the contact management program that is part of the Office suite of programs. And it occurred to me… more
I Am In Awe Of Realtor Moms
Right now, I am single. And I sort of forgot to have children. So other than my cats and Willie the hyperactive Labradoodle puppy, I don't have any serious domestic responsibilities. And I often feel on verge of being overwhelmed and over… more
Are Whole Foods' Veggies Inorganic?
Over the past decade, Whole Foods has built a reputation for being a totally trustworthy source of organic food around the country. Last night, a news report by our local ABC affiliate raised questions about the trustworthiness of the chains "… more
Sell Or No Sell?
There are almost as many ways of approaching real estate as there are people in the profession. And I was especially amused reading some of the comments on Catarina Bannier's last post last week about hating the "sales" part of the… more
Let The Sun Shine In
Over twenty five years, I've only met one buyer who wanted a place that was dark. She said there was some astrological influence that made her avoid bright sunshine. She is not typical of most buyers. Most of them want lots of sun. The… more
