Testimonial After Sale
“I've lived here in the Lake Keowee area for
12 years and it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life… We tried a couple of REALTORS without
success… They all protest to be the best, but we didn't have many showings…I was never satified with the
material… Having been in sales and marketing all my life, I was amazed that Doug and Carol Patterson were light
years ahead of most REALTORS in our area on how to present a property… Doug is an expert with web sites
and a camera…” See the video for the rest of the story. [UPDATE: Larry missed KK and his friends. To quote Larry, “I'm back!” We found him a home and enjoy seeing him at The Club again.]

- “Keowee Key is a civilized wilderness. Living here and hiking the Appalachians is my inspiration to be the writer I am. One of my favorite works is, “The Ghost of Keowee.” The history of this area is rich. I still hike the Appalachian Trail and share my experiences in my books. My Hummer can go to Cashiers and Highlands and The Blue Ridge Parkway on auto pilot.”
- UPDATE: “OK, I missed Keowee Key and I'm baaack! Missed my friends, my KK Club and my golf. There is no one else I would ask to help me find a home here but Doug and Carol. They did, they made a quick work of it, and I'm back! I want to share this with you as well: I recommended them to some dear friends of mine, Lynn and Terry, who had a KK waterfront home that also had no success selling. The Pattersons applied their exceptional marketing talents, as they did with mine. Their home sold within a few days. The Pattersons are known to be very selective about the listings they take. Lynn and Terry listened to their suggestions (as did I) and it was a WIN-WIN. They really went the extra mile with them by suggesting major changes that were needed to make the home more sell-able. This could have caused them to lose a possible listing but my friends heeded their advice and are thankful for it. Those changes helped it sell quickly and for FULL PRICE! They are sincere and know their business. Again, I turned to them for a friend who needed to market her beautiful home in Greenville. They recommended a Realtor, who is very refined lady, that made the perfect combination for my friend. Her marketing was excellent. Doug & Carol carefully examined her marketing talents and they knew she could make it happen. It too was a quick sale. I would highly recommend, if you are thinking of selling your home, to ask the Pattersons to help you find a highly-qualified agent in your area. These Patterson folks are good to know and a pleasure to deal with. They are no-nonsense, transparent professionals who also enjoy being owners in Keowee Key: the BEST OF THE BEST.”

Your home or land will have its own page on our web site. This page will have your Visual Tour and YouTube videos as well as a link to the MLS information and pertinent documents. See an example.
We market your home on Visual Tour. This allows us to add panoramic photos and to add
extensive text to each slide. Click on the Visual Tour in the Featured Listing above to see how we make the
most of this selling tool. This unique system creates powerful presentations that not only show your home in
its best light to out-of-town buyers, but also syndicates your home tour to major real estate portal sites such as Yahoo,
Realtor.com, and many more. Visual Tour also provides presentations optimized for mobile devices such as smart phones
and iPads. We add YouTube videos to our listings.
Seller Beware! Some agents exclude their listings from most Property Search sites. We do not!
We market online, 24/7, through hundreds of U.S. Property Search web sites
for Maximum Exposure — not minimum.
The more hooks in the water, the better. Don't lose precious time and money using
outdated marketing methods. Over 90 percent of home buyers begin their home search on the Internet. As one of the
largest international real estate firms with the best technology in the industry, RE/MAX is
perfectly positioned to market your home to a larger number of buyers and to sell your home faster. We have
advantages other firms don't.
Seller Beware! Some agents keep their listings off most Property Search sites by changing “Internet Data Exchange Include” from Yes to No in the MLS. We say Yes to Maximum Exposure for you!
Our marketing includes an informative CD for buyers to take home.
The CD includes a slide show, documents, and a link to your property's
own web page (which links to your community's page) with videos and a Visual Tour.
Click the image of the sample weekly Visual Tour report (to right) to see a full-size copy (PDF). This home
went under contract in 6 months and had 767 Visual Tour views. Marketing is our specialty. One very basic thing
we do is make the Visual Tour link entry on the MLS go directly to the community page on our site — NOT just to the Tour. This gives the potential buyer exposure to a “bigger picture” emphasizing not only your
home but also the community and the stunning area we are privileged to enjoy.
To the left is an example of how our listings appear on Property Search web sites. We go the extra mile
in marketing by highlighting your home with a distinctive black frame; when buyers are scanning down a
search page, your property's photo will catch their eyes.
Of course, technology alone won't sell your home. Our proven marketing plan covers all the bases for
you - and you won't have to worry about a thing. The details will be handled with care and constant communication,
to ensure the marketing and sale of your home go smoothly. Of course, the real work of selling - or buying
- a home begins when you get a contract. We will handle every step of that process to keep your stress to a minimum: scheduling and meeting inspectors, working closely with your attorney and lender (if needed) to see that nothing
falls through the cracks and to create a win-win. Let our client testimonials tell the story.
