Morning did it go at the open yesterday.  It was good to see that you had so many clicks.  Way to go -- WooHoo :-)

Those photos surely make the house inviting - how did it go?  Karen

Mattie I am with you, it's a beautiful home and it has been surprising that the home has not yet sold however, the market until recently was stalled because of the nations problems!

Debe I saw that you had an open house at the same time yesterday and hope you were as busy as me. I had great traffic! Marti did a fantastic job on my header and I am planning to have him do some work on my outside blog too!

Anne I agree and the crowd was pretty good yesterday. I will have some more feedback later today 

Jeannette I do actually have a lot of success in different forms at my open houses and this one was fairly successful!

Jennifer It is so good to see you here! I hope all is well in your new digs on the East Coast. I am thinking you and Jason might need at least one other room but...oh, well, never mind! Have a great week and I will drop by your blog soon!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 1 year ago

Jim & Sharon It was so good to see you on the running trail Saturday, I had forgotten that we met at an open house, how long ago? Never mind that, thanks again for stopping by my blog! 

Dale Good to see you here! Thanks for dropping by and yes it was a very good open house. I have noticed that traffic has picked up considerably since last fall!

HI Gail Hey there , I did have a nice crowd and I have really been surprised at the number who click on my open house posts, often days or weeks after the event, It's pretty cool that it stays up and is a way that future client can get to know more about us! 

Karen How are things in your part of the world? As you know I take a lot of my own pictures for my blog but when it comes to photographing living spaces homes and architecture, I always hire a professional. It is fairly reasonable and the end product is very nice!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 1 year ago

Hey Russell, I heard you had an entire family spend an hour at the house! Any more feedback, that is certainly some serious "previewing" time!

Posted by Allysoun Musslewhite (AvenueOne Properties, Inc.) about 1 year ago

Allysoun, yes it was a larger family affair with children, grandchildren and even a couple of in-laws! I have contacted their agent and we will see what develops!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 1 year ago

Beautiful listing. I held an open house on Sunday and had 3 couples interested. At this writing, we have 2 contracts on the table.

Posted by Rebecca Gaujot Lewisburg WV Realtor (Coldwell Banker Stuart & Watts Real Estate) about 1 year ago

Rebecca Thank you for the compliment! I also had some serious interest and I am glad to hear that your open house generated activity. I know many agents do not care for open houses but I think it's all about attitude and a real strategy! Thanks for stopping by!

Posted by Russell Lewis, Broker,CLHMS,GRI (AvenueOne Properties, Austin Texas Real Estate) about 1 year ago

Hi Russell  What a paradise.  I hope it sells for you and I am sure it will.  You do such an excellent presentation of your listings.  Your clients have to be so appreciative.  Thanks to you, Austin Texas seems to be the place to be.

Hi Bruce, very good to see you here! Yes, Austin has some incredibly fine neighborhoods and homes. And...oh wait, I was going to make a pfunny comment about Jason's neighborhood, Pflugerville but reconsidered. LOL

Renee The rest of the house is exceptional too and it's located in a wonderful neighborhood!

Posted by Mary Douglas, REALTOR ®, Red Feather Lakes, Colorado (United Country Ponderosa Realty) about 1 year ago

Hi Mary I am a big proponent of Open Houses (unlike many agents) because I have several goals along with selling the home and generating interest in the home and neighborhood. Thanks very much for dropping by!
