“Get your apps together – Take some better pics”

“Get your act apps together – Take some better pics”

There is an old adage: The best camera is the one you have with you. More often than not, that is your phone. The stock camera app on your phone is great for taking a quick pic when your kiddo does something cute or you are in a rush to capture the moment. I say free yourself of the stock camera and buy a few upgraded apps that can help you create more creative and eye catching shots. The camera on your phone won’t replace the need for professional photography when it comes to showcasing real estate for sale, but it is usually the most convenient way for all of us to capture images. Step up your picture snapping skills folks!

Below is a snapshot of a few photo apps that I use. The Apple App Store and Android Market are full of camera apps that do all kinds of amazing things to photos as you take them and do a bit a post-editing. Most of these cost less than a couple dollars and will really take your photo capturing skills to the next level.

Dear Curtis

Dear Curtis,

Hi Curtis we are Omaha Title & Escrow a title company in Omaha Nebraska. 

Over the past few months we have had a card board cut out of you all over our office!  We have been taking your picture all around our office helping with day to day tasks and are finding you quite helpful.  We love what you do, and who you represent (we mostly love shopping at Hy-Vee food stores for all our company events!)

With the day to day grind we try to have fun at our jobs, and we love what we do.  We love seeing a new homeowners face when they have purchased their first home, along with all the other life changes that come with buying or selling a home. 

We know you are terribly b
usy especially with your new show "Around the World in 80 Plates"  but we all think you are really swell, and would be overjoyed if you made an appearance at an Industry BBQ hosted in our parking lot.  

We want to have the BBQ in June on any day you are available!  We sincerely hope to hear from you!  The perfect recipe for summer fun ... Curtis Stone, Great Clients and Good Food!

Your Friends
Omaha Title & Escrow

Title Tips

Did you know you can access free basic information online for several Counties in Nebraska?
All you need is an owner name or address.

Nebraska County Contact Information
Click the county for contact info. AND Watch for the “parcel search” link to look up details on property in that County. Some of the information available on these sites includes: date/amount of last sale, tax key #, owner name, brief legal, picture of property/improvements, assessed values, year built, # of bedrooms/baths, etc...  (not all counties have online parcel search access, but at least give a phone# to call for info)

Also you can enter just the house number if you are unsure how to spell the street name.
Please feel free to use this resource and/or share it with your clients.

The Value of Customer Service

Remember the day of the full service gas station?  You would pull up and they would pump your gas, clean your windows and check your oil while you waited comfortably inside the car.  These days, most people don't know about this kind of customer service.  At Omaha Title we want you to have an outstanding customer experience every time you put your hard earned business in our hands.

Don't let customer service be a thing of the past!

“Digital Footprint”

The key to success as a Realtor® is building a brand with a solid reputation. Your digital brand is extremely important with today’s ever changing communication patterns. You make connections everyday and there is a high probability that the people you meet do a little homework on you. What will they find? Will it be the message that you want them to find? Does your digital brand represent the ‘real you’?

 is a great place to start, expand and leverage your digital footprint. This site is perfect to share your professional experience, success and niche as a real estate professional. Those potential clients that walked into your open house last week are going to look online for more information about you. Use every free resource that LinkedIn has to offer so potential clients and contacts find the message that you want them to find.

Make your online impression a professional one:

-Grow your network. Contacts>Add Connections

-Fill out your entire profile. (Starting with a professional photo!)

-Update your status at least once a week. (The shelf life of an update on LinkedIn is much longer than networks like Facebook & Twitter)

-Recommend connections and request recommendations to add depth to your profile.

-Above all: Be authentic and apply your same face-to-face networking skills when using an online network like LinkedIn.

I hope you've found this info valuable and if you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to me: Email - Phone - Text - HeyTell
