Hello from Curtis!
Placing a “For Sale by Owner” sign in your yard is not the way to sell your house.
Hey what’s up? My name is Curtis and I’ve been doing real estate marketing since 2014. In 2006 I completed my Master’s in School Counseling which was terrible timing here in California. That was the year our state was making HUGE budget cuts and teachers and counselors were getting fired left and right. So naturally, I transitioned to wedding videos. Honestly, it was the perfect fit. I was able to combine my love for music with my desire to do something creative. I had a blast and found a lot of success making wedding videos all over the world. In 2013 our oldest son Milo, started kindergarten. That fall, I was out of town shooting weddings 9 weekends in a row. After being a stay at home dad for his first 6 years of life, I HATED being away from him on his days off! So I decided to close up the wedding video business in the spring of 2013.
Vali was working for a home builder in Bakersfield and would ask me from time to time to take photos or video of a house or event, or create a flyer for the company. I decided that pursuing work in this industry would be a great fit for me since it would allow me to still mostly work from home, be creative, and best of all, work more with my amazing wife. I quickly realized that there was a ton of potential in the real estate industry where marketing was concerned. Professional photos were definitely not the standard, and it seemed to me like a lot of agents were sort of on autopilot in regards to signage, flyers, and websites. I loved being able to transform the home building company image, and put out high quality, beautiful content.
I understand that there are a lot of technicalities in the process of buying and selling a home, and that’s where Vali is going to help you out. There is also the huge importance of presentation and making your house look sexy as hell. That’s where I come in. My role at RESCO is to coach you and teach you the simple steps I’ve learned to make a listing look professional and appealing. I have tips on prepping your home for photos, hiring a professional photographer, taking your own photos, and templates for flyers and signs. Placing a “For Sale by Owner” sign in your yard is not the way to sell your house. Selling your own home is not for everyone, but if it’s for you, let’s make it legit.
