Vail Valley Real Estate Incorporated is shaking things up and leading a shift in the way real estate transactions are handled in the Vail Valley. The new brokerage is leveraging today’s Internet and telecommunications technology to bring local market knowledge and on demand real estate services to prospects and clients where they are… on the World Wide Web.
With over 70 years of collective experience helping buyers and sellers of property in Vail, Beaver Creek and surrounding mountain communities, long-time locals, John Helmering, Rick Beveridge (formerly of Beveridge Real Estate) and David Nudell (formerly of Berkshire Hathaway) have teamed up to form this new concept brokerage. Vail Valley Real Estate Incorporated will provide the best of all worlds, by combining environmentally friendly, web-based technology with unmatched industry market expertise and traditional brokerage services.
“Our local market knowledge and technology-driven practices offer better, more efficient transactions for both buyers and sellers,” explains Managing Broker, John Helmering. “With 100% mobile and on-line abilities, we are available anywhere in Eagle County and beyond to discuss the real estate market, show property, list homes, negotiate, and digitally sign contracts at any time.”
The social nature, greater user interactivity, and mobile computing capabilities of Web 2.0 brought about tremendous changes across all enterprises including the real estate industry. From the MLS to personal networks, the real estate industry thrives on the timely dissemination of information. Before Web 2.0, real estate professionals were the only ones with access to that information, and prospective buyers and sellers had to seek them out to see the home choices in their area. But now, the challenge for real estate professionals is lead generation and optimizing new listings so they are found and seen by prospective buyers searching for property from their desktops or mobile devices.
“The way people search for, find, and sell their homes has changed, and so have we,” says partner David Nudell. “… and the next generation of homebuyers has grown up searching for, buying, selling everything on demand. So we are finding those buyers where they shop and search for property, on their terms and timeframe, via their computer or phone”.
Vail Valley Real Estate, Inc. generates leads for sellers and their listings with a strong Internet presence. They have harnessed the power of several digital, web-based platforms including their heavily trafficked websites and urls www.vailrealestatesearch.com and www.vailvalleyproperty.com, enhanced social media, virtual tours, professional HD photography, email newsletter and property alerts and drone videos.
“Our sellers have been pleased to see their properties receive upwards of 100 tour views per day on VVRE’s website,” reports John Helmering. “Even most of the national portals struggle to compete with our organic search optimization and online buyer retention.”
Vail Valley Real Estate Incorporated is currently working with several developers and representing many new construction projects in the Eagle River Valley. They work with local sellers and first time homebuyers, as well as second home resort Buyers and Sellers. In addition, VVRE has a well-developed commercial and property management affiliation that is actively consulting with property owners throughout the Valley.
“We also understand the importance of balance in our mountain communities,” explains partner Rick Beveridge. “Therefore, in addition to resort listings and selling luxury properties, VVRE is dedicated to working on several affordable housing and vertical development projects that we hope will address some of the Valley’s affordable housing issues.”
