Our Realty Marketing Strategy
No two clients or homes are alike.
Hawthorne & Francis Team has built a reputation for excellence in customer service because we combine high tech with a personal touch to provide you access to our array of solutions, while creating a customized strategy that works best for your specific situation. We provide the expert negotiation to give you the strategic edge in selling or buying for the best possible price in the your market.
See below for details, and contact our office to find out how the Hawthorne & Francis Team advantage can work for you.
Not all Realtors' web marketing is created equal. Placement on our website generates traffic beyond that on the MLS site, as our website is itself a well-networked destination. This Hawthorne & Francis Team Website attracts thousands of unique visitors each month (not "hits") who are actively searching for homes.

As with our Web Marketing, our advertising is not cookie-cutter. We use targeted mailings, community involvement, custom print and outdoor ads to develop awareness of our brand, our services and clients, and to convey a message that is tailored for today's current market.

This is a simple point form description of the system we put into place to get your home sold. It falls short of conveying much of the behind the scenes sales work and negotiating effort our professional team exerts into ensuring your 'FOR SALE' sign ends up with a 'SOLD' sticker!
In spite of technological advances, real estate is still a people business, and we serve you - the customer.
