Talk about consumers wanting a “best” Realtor, how about the “most informed” Realtor? That’s who I’d pick to sell my home. The one who knows the top digital trends shaping our way of thinking, doing business and buying a house. Buyers are bombarded with all this technology like drones, Artificial Intelligence and Apple Pay, and they want an agent who is up on it all, including the latest in marketing strategies and commissions.
“Our industry is very blessed with a huge amount of continuous innovation,” says Stefan Swanepoel,” I consider myself one of the industry’s leading caretakers. We are the people who analyze what is occurring on a non-stop basis and bring that info to agents or anyone in a fun, easy to understand, bite-sized way.”
Stefan Swanepoel really IS one of the Real Estate industry’s top industry visionaries. Guy knows his stuff forwards and backwards. He doesn’t get this designation by buying ad space in a magazine, or even selling it, he gets it through hard work and tons of research. TONS! His Swanepoel Trends Report is an annual analysis (published 4 times a year) of how societal and economic changes impact the real estate business and affect real estate brokers, agents and home buyers. Every home buyer should read his books, and every agent in this country should read and hear him speak at least once a year.
I’ve had the pleasure at Inman Real Estate Connect several times.
