Posted by Art Ansoorian — March 3, 2011
VENTURA COUNTY, CA – Foreseeing an ongoing robust market for upscale homes in Ventura County throughout 2011, Troop Real Estate, Inc. announces formation of an expanded and “digitally pacesetting” Fine Estates Division featuring a blue ribbon team of veteran agents blanketing all 14 Troop offices in the region, announces Laura Lee Anthony, vice president/general manager of Troop.
“One hundred and sixteen Fine Estates homes were sold and/or listed between $800,000 to $3+ million dollars by Troop agents alone in Ventura County during 2010. This is almost double the total for 2009. We see this trend continuing through the year and beyond. To bolster our service to this market, Troop’s expanded marketing program targets services to Fine Estates clients, including a new web site specific to these properties,” Anthony said. She noted that for purposes of the new program, Fines Estates are defined as properties priced at $800,000 or more.
Commenting at the recent “kickoff” luncheon at the Topa Tower Club in Oxnard where the new Troop program was unveiled, Anthony underlined that of the top producing agents comprising the new Fine Estates team, most have been with the 24-year-old Troop firm for numerous years.
“This is a high powered group of agents who will provide unrivaled networking outreach for clients covering all of Troop’s offices,” Anthony declared.
Anthony emphasized that a key component of Troop’s Fine Estates Division is the high quality marketing package that the team’s agents can apply to benefit their clients. Setting the marketing tone is the division’s new web site – www.troopfineestates.com.
This web site depicts all of Troop’s Fine Estates listings, names of the agents, their e-mail addresses, and related information. Other features include special pages for waterfront properties, equestrian properties, lots and land, virtual tours of properties, a contacts page, news and information, community highlights i.e. schools and attractions, and the locations of all Troop offices.
Another important element of Troop’s Fine Estates Division is their membership in “Who’s Who of Luxury Real Estate” – www.luxuryrealestate.com -- where their seller’s properties are marketed in over 70 countries in print and web exposure. The agents of Troop’s Fine Estates Division can also network with thousands of real estate agents around the globe.
Additionally, agents will have the capability of customizing Fine Estates marketing materials to their specific client properties through Troop Graphics, Anthony said.
