(TUCSON, AZ.) – Long Realty was recognized for “Best Use of Video on a Website” this month at the 2010 Leading Real Estate Companies of the World conference in Las Vegas. Long Realty was selected from a group of over 600 premier real estate firms, each a member of Leading Real Estate Companies of the World – a global network comprised of the best-known local and regional real estate firms.
Long Realty has embraced the exploding popularity of online video through video property tours on company listings, a Long Realty YouTube channel, and informative videos designed to educate consumers on real estate topics, such as the current homebuyer tax credit.
In an effort to continue to grow its online video presence, Long Realty recently announced the debut of a new online video talk show, Housing Matters. Each month a new episode of Housing Matters will provide viewers with easy-to-understand information on Arizona’s housing market from a variety of knowledgeable guests. Housing Matters will be featured on LongRealty.com and distributed throughout social media channels.
“We feel it is our responsibility at Long Realty to educate the public about what is happening in their local housing market,” said Rosey Koberlein, CEO of the Long Companies. “With an informal, brief question-and-answer talk show format, we hope Housing Matters will become a great resource for Arizona residents and newcomers alike.”
Koberlein is featured in Housing Matters’ first episode, where she discusses the state of the housing market in Arizona and the impact of the home buyer tax credit program. The video can be viewed at www.youtube.com/longrealty.
