Board of Realtors

Have any of you done this? Is it beneficial? What kind of return can I expect?

Thank you for your time!

I think it is different in different areas.

NWCD was about getting in bed with Realtors.

have clean windows you will sell more houses!”… they know that
is a crock of sh-t.

Clean windows enhance, not create miracles. If we ‘aim small miss
small’ we can laser focus on one good need.

Everyone under the sun (myself included) has went after a Realtor
telling them how our service will better the chances of them selling
homes. It is complete fiction and I doubt there is a Realtor on earth
who would say “I would have sold that house if the windows were

Realtors are under stress they will lose their clients to another Realtor
if they feel they are not being taken care of. This could be something
to focus on.

You can give their clients another affordable upgrade to add to the
homes overall appeal. You can also give a discount for any of their

The Realtor wants to look good [I]and[/I] protect their sale.

I don’t know, just some quick thoughts…

Paul - What was your name on NWCD?

I cleaned the high, canyon-facing windows for a new customer last week – a realtor.

In discussing what was important to her as a home-seller, she did state that she focuses on details that indicate an owner cares for their property – air intake registers, carriage lights, floor boards, etc. She personally values clean windows, screens, and tracks when preparing a home for sale – as part of a bigger project directed toward curb appeal and pride of ownership.
