Pat Starnes Snippets: July 2008

Filming for House Hunters

This is my first post! I want to share my experience in working on HGTV's House Hunters. While I can't give away any trade secrets. I can say the experience was fun and rewarding. Other agents were envious when they heard I was on national television, clients were impressed: "My agent is famous!", and I promoted the episode through the local media to maximize my exposure.

I wasn't selected for the show because I was the most successful Realtor in my area. I was given the opportunity because of my quality website and the internet presence I have in my marketplace. Yes, I had to be able to carry myself in front of the camera, and yes, I was nervous! It was interesting to learn how the show was produced and there was a little acting involved, multiple takes, etc. But the show was good and when it aired, I had a small party with friends over to celebrate.

Bottom line is this: Find a way to position yourself as the expert in your field. Take every opportunity to maximize your presence, like joining Active Rain and writing a blog. The more you do to make yourself visible cannot be a bad thing, as long as it's in good taste.
