After we wrapped the recent filming of House Hunters International here in Puerto Vallarta, I sat back and reflected on how far Timothy Real Estate Group has come in such a short time and in such a changing market. Starting a business is hard under the best of circumstances and I wanted to share our story in the hopes that it might inspire others who are starting out or thinking about it. (Read Chapter 5)
Chapter 6: House Hunters International Contacted Us Through Social Media
Social media is changing the way people communicate and how fast news can travel. It was through social media that House Hunters International contacted us. They had never used an agency or filmed in Puerto Vallarta before and asked if we would contact them based on the conversations we had on Twitter.
They thought our online presence was professional and that we demonstrated online what they were looking for in a real estate office. When they asked if we were interested I didn’t hesitate to say yes. We sent photos and audition tapes of 3 of our sets clients and of their real estate agents. After telephone interviews and numerous video auditions they chose the clients and agent and we were cast.
We were nervous and excited to have this opportunity. We wanted to accomplish two things with the exposure. We wanted to show the world that Puerto Vallarta is beautiful and safe, and we wanted to portray Puerto Vallarta as a wonderful place to live and retire.
This was a chance to introduce people to the authenticity of our sales agents and show the heart behind our company. I believed that if we could be ourselves we would shine, and I think it worked. It has been said that if you do what you enjoy you will never work a day in your life. Not every workday is created equal, but if you enjoy what you do, you'll do it better and your clients will benefit from their experience with you.
