The majority of the below strategies are not performed by any other agents – we know of no other agents performing all of the below strategies.

The property will be highlighted on all major websites – including Craigslist, Stltoday, Backpage, Google, Base, Zillow, Oodle, Trulia, Hotpad, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and as a showcase property on Realtor.com.
The majority of our listings are highlighted on 100+ website (no other agents in St. Louis are providing their clients with this type of exposure).
