Luxury Real Estate Marketing Tip: We Cannot Wait to Spoil You

In our travels to Connecticut to work with one of our clients we stayed at a charming Bed & Breakfast Inn.  Before we arrived we received a welcome letter that said, “We cannot wait to spoil you”. And, indeed we were spoiled in so many ways!  Let this be your mantra for providing extraordinary service with exceptional care as a luxury real estate marketing professional.  

One of the many ways in which we were spoiled was a plateful of little “mid-night snacks” that awaited us when we returned to our room at night, with a personal note. The first night it was some nibbles of rhubarb crumble.  The next night it was tiny morsels of brownies.  The husband and wife proprietors were extremely gracious and made us feel very much at home. 

The last night we were there we went to a great seafood restaurant that was located within a seaside hotel (not ours).  Before our entree was served, a fire alarm sounded and the entire restaurant had to be evacuated.   

The “fire drill” was not a bad experience; nothing serious actually happend.  Instead we had the opportunity to meet some of the other patrons of the restaurant who were delightful.  For our inconvenience, however, we were comped coffee and dessert.  

Think of running your luxury real estate marketing practice like a B&B or a great hotel How can you provide this level of extraordinary service, in your practice?  Think hospitality vs. real estate.  Then let your clients know that you cannot wait to spoil them.

New England

“I have lived in a lot of different places and what brought me back to New Hampshire was the 4 distinct seasons,” says Rob Tappen, associate broker at the Bean Group. As a New England native, Tappen is very familiar with the region, and all of the luxuries that make it feel like home.

The city of Sunapee in Northwest New Hampshire is most known for its namesake lake that flanks the right side of the city. Come in the summer, and the lake is alive with water skiers, boaters and swimmers. Stately houses set upon the lake get a private viewing of all these summer activities. Just off the lake you can enjoy activities such as golfing, hiking, art festivals and summer theater. Summer is not the only active season in New England. Come wintertime, the skiers hit the slopes, flocking to Mount Sunapee or Ragged Mountain.

Lakefront or mountainside, homes in New England have a distinctive charm, an understated grandeur that springs from an appreciation of the land and nature. The featured Kearsage Mountain Estate in New London, NH, is a prime example of old-world charm meeting modern amenities. The house where Gene Saranzen Masters & 7 PGA Majors golf legend lived. Complete with a detached barn, and situated on 16 acres of land, the views of Mt. Kearsage will leave you breathless while you relish in the comforts of this luxurious estate.

The accessibility of New England makes it possible to be secluded yet not isolated. You can reap the fruits of a vast garden in your backyard being one with nature and then heading to an outing in Boston including the Four Seasons and a baseball game the very next day. Whether it’s the city or seacoast all of it is only 90 miles away. Close proximity to larger cities such as New York makes traveling a breeze in New England. However you might never want to leave.


Sagee Manor

“Before you can truly appreciate Sagee Manor, you have to know about Highlands, North Carolina, where the property is located,” says Bob Fisher, current owner of the Sagee Manor. “Highlands is like the watering hole in the African Savannah in that it has attracted sophisticated, successful people from all over the South for generations, and now people beyond the South are discovering it.”

Recently rated by Barron’s as one of the best second home communities, Highlands is surrounded by National Forest with summer temperatures averaging in the mid-70s. Bob believes that the quality of life is what makes Highlands so extraordinary. “People come here to seek respite in a stressful world,” he says. “We have a great climate, a clean environment, friendly people, and sophisticated amenities in a laidback atmosphere. It really is a remarkable place.”

Perched atop a mountain conveniently located inside the Town of Highlands is Sagee Manor, a true work of art when it comes to architecture, interior design, craftsmanship and landscaping. “When my wife and I bought this incredible property in 1999, we wanted to do the right thing with it,” Bob says. “We wanted to create something of permanence, something that would be recognized nationally and internationally for its extreme high quality of design and craft, and something that would last for generations.”

Bob and his wife did just that. The rustic, Tudor-style estate sits on a portion of the 50 pristine acres of woodlands, comprised of its own mountain, with 360-degree vistas. With seven bedrooms, eight full baths, and five half baths, the estate is perfect for hosting guests, especially with three outdoor patios. The grounds of the Sagee Manor are also extremely impressive, with 13 gardens around the house, several designed by famed English designer, Rosemary Verey.

“Between the quality of the location in Highlands, of the site atop an in-town mountain, of the design of the Manor and gardens, of the millwork from local artisans, the result of our and our team’s efforts is unmatched in the modern era,” Bob says.

Sagee Manor is currently listed at $17.9 million for the Manor, and 22 acres with additional acreage are available as well.

Winston-Salem, North Carolina

“Winston-Salem is the center of the East Coast, which attracts northerners and southerners,” says John-Mark Mitchell, Principal Broker with eXp Realty of the Carolinas. “We have northerners who want southern hospitality without going too far south, and we have southerners who want the cooler weather of the north without the extremes.”

Winston-Salem was the first city in the United States to have an arts council, which led to the nickname “City of the Arts”. Multiple galleries and artisan workshops, as well as the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, are located in Winston-Salem, and the city hosts many theater and film festivals throughout the year. Many notable artists call Winston-Salem home, like Jon Kuhn, a glasswork artist whose artwork has been featured in the Smithsonian, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and the permanent collection in the White House.

In addition to notable things about the area, Wake Forest University, N.C. Baptist School of Medicine and Forsyth Hospital, all located in Winston-Salem, offer some of the best hospitals in America. Old Salem is a major tourist attraction, and Winston-Salem’s sweetest claim to fame is that it’s home to Krispy Kreme doughnuts.

One property in the area that John-Mark is currently representing is NASCAR Hall of Famer Junior Johnson’s 150-acre ranch estate. “Junior’s estate could continue to function as a ranch, or it could be turned into a winery,” John-Mark says. “It’s a very unique property and one of the most outstanding homes I’ve ever seen.”

The best part about Winston-Salem, John-Mark notes, is the feeling of community in Winston-Salem. “I’ve traveled a great deal, but nothing quite compares with the residents of Winston-Salem, the opportunities people have here, and the amount of support our community gets.”

Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia

Known as a premier vacation destination and perfect spot for relocation, Smith Mountain Lake is nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Central Virginia. Located a few hours from Washington, D.C. it is a picturesque rural landscape of mountains and lake. Dubbed the “Jewel of the Blue Ridge,” the area is home to families, business moguls, and retirees, attracted by both its beauty and accessibility.

Diversity of home styles and a wide array of cultural offerings give Smith Mountain Lake a decidedly European-like flair. In fact, many of the area’s year round residents hail from around the world. “People know that you get great value and high quality of life here,” says Leslie Becker, broker/realtor at Smith Mountain Lake Properties and owner of Premier Vacation Rentals at Smith Mountain Lake.

A low-key yet active lifestyle is one of the area’s main draws. Popular recreational offerings include signature golf courses, equestrian centers, and sailing regattas. “You can go full-throttle all year long with any activity you want,” says Becker.

Blessed with a 22,000-acre lake and 500-miles of shoreline, Smith Mountain Lake provides ample opportunities to purchase the perfect waterfront home to suit any lifestyle – whether it’s a luxury condo, vacation retreat, or year-round home. A “controlled” deep water lake, Smith Mountain Lake never loses more than three-feet of water, which protects the shoreline and beaches. “Savvy homebuyers know this fact,” Becker says. “It is one of the reasons people from around the world buy lakefront homes here.”

A beautiful example of the area’s waterfront properties can be found at the Love Stone Inn, a $995,000 or turn key  $1,250,000 French country lakefront estate with breathtaking views of the mountain and lake. Its Peaks of Otter stone exterior is a rare find on the lake.   

Additional features of the over five-acre property include a private dock and terraced beachfront as well as a separate guest cottage.

Sarasota Waterfront: A Floridian's Sanctuary

“Some days you celebrate and the water celebrates with you. Other days when you need comfort, the water is rhythmic and reassuring. There is something about it that is a sanctuary,” says Candy Swick, realtor and owner of Candy Swick & Company in Sarasota.

Living on Sarasota waterfront offers an endless spectrum of lifestyle and recreational possibilities. Enjoy fishing, sail boating or swimming. Living in Florida also presents the benefit of snorkeling and observing tropical life under the sea as well as dolphin and manatee watching. After gazing at one of Florida’s magnificent sunsets, head into downtown Sarasota, rich in culture and art. Enjoy a wonderful meal and then a night at the theatre.

“Life on the Sarasota waterfront is constantly changing. It’s never the same, never ho-hum. It’s always electric,” says Swick.

It is currently the perfect time to buy in the Sarasota waterfront market. While interest rates are low, market inventory still has good values and interested buyers still have plenty of choices.

A premiere property on Sarasota’s market is at Vista Bay Point, luxury condominiums at the entrance of Golden Gate Point that exude prestige and architectural style. Drive into your 2-car garage and take the private elevator right to your front door. This 3,300-square-foot, three bed, three bath residence offers a 180-degree view of the bay front, the perfect place to watch Florida’s beautiful sunrises and sunsets. In addition to the pool, spa, athletic center and state-of-the-art theatre room, Vista Bay Point is within walking distance from all of the shopping, restaurants and theatres that downtown Sarasota offers.

Luxury Real Estate Marketing Tip: The Next Trend Is Experiential Marketing

In our post, “Meet the Henrys”, we emphasized that this demographic (High Earner Not Rich Yet) values experiences over ownership of objects.  This trend has become evident in every segment of the luxury goods and services market.   Lifestyle is now of paramount importance especially when it comes to marketing luxury real estate.  In marketing a luxury home, it is more important to tell the story of the lifestyle rather than focusing on granite countertops or mahogany floors.

For instance, people who are moving to Santa Barbara are willing to own smaller homes because they want to live the “outdoor” lifestyle that the environment offers.  The experience is more important than the size of the home.  Their focus is the weather, the beach, the cycling trails, the hiking venues, golfing, sailing, fishing and kayaking.  Others want to walk to the downtown area for shopping, restaurants, and theaters.     

In Aspen, the Aspen Institute is an important market draw.  Its stated mission is twofold: “to foster values-based leadership, encouraging individuals to reflect on the ideals and ideas that define a good society, and to provide a neutral and balanced venue for discussing and acting on critical issues.”  The Institute has a broad appeal for tourist as well as for affluent Aspen home owners.

Sell your market on the lifestyle benefits they would derive from moving to and living in your community. Smart agents will take clients for lunch in their harbor/beach area, so that their guests can feel what it would be like to live in their town on the waterfront.  Others will invite them for lunch at an exclusive club on top of the highest mountain peak.  In urban communities, such as New York, walking to a great restaurant for lunch from their apartment may seal the deal. 

Be mindful of this experiential trend and apply it to your marketing strategies.   That is, if you are interested in the “unabashed pursuit of market leadership”, as we say.

Seven Eagles in North Carolina sold to NASCAR Hall of Famer Junior Johnson

"Luxury homeowners have higher expectations for marketing their home for sale, and duPont REGISTRY™ always exceeds their expectations. duPont is a staple when it comes to marketing a luxury home because of the quality, the brand, and the results. I’ve used duPont multiple times for my listings, and I’ve seen results from doing so.

Most recently, when the December 2011 issue of duPont REGISTRY A Buyers Gallery of Fine Homes® came out, I picked up a copy to help one of my clients, NASCAR Hall of Famer Junior Johnson, find a new home. He was instantly interested in that month’s cover property, Seven Eagles in Charlotte, North Carolina. He toured the home, made an offer, and he and the homeowner closed on the property just a few weeks ago. We’re now placing Junior’s previous estate in the next issue of duPont REGISTRY."

Marketing Luxury Real Estate: The Luxury of Putting Life Back into the World

What would you do if you won the lottery and the money took care of all your needs?  What would you do with the excess funds?  Would you leave a legacy for others to enjoy?

“The relation with the world that I want is to be putting life back into the world, rather than taking life out of it.”—W.S. Merwin

U.S.  Poet Laureate and two time Pulitzer winner, W.S.  Merwin decided to grow a forest of palm trees on 19 acres of officially designated wasteland on the north shore Maui, Hawaii. He has gathered palm seeds from various botanical gardens worldwide. 

The forest has been grown sustainably with recycled water, and solar energy. Within this windswept region of microclimates various specimens of palm are thriving including a rare treasured palm from Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.  Mr. Merwin remarks “I know nothing about Reunion Island, but where a tree grows you have a place.”  Botanists have actually catalogued over 2500 species of palms trees globally.

His love of trees began at a young age, Mr. Merwin remarks, ‘My father was very repressive.  As a child I didn’t trust the feelings of pretty well anyone except my mother.  But I trusted the tree in the backyard.  We were friends.  If I could talk to it, it would talk to me.  But I did not know how”.

“Later in life I was talking to the biologist, E.O. Wilson about that, and he said talking to trees was not silly at all. “The trees gene code is much older than yours,” he said, It’s not withholding anything.  If you know how to talk, it will tell you everything you want.” 

The Mervin Conservancy is his legacy.  Check out the web site and the video as Mr. Merwin takes you on an enchanting tour of the forest.

“In between twenty-five or thirty years I have planted about 850 species of palms, and at least four or five times that many actual trees. I have had no map….We both hope that the whole of this land can eventually become a palm sanctuary. Just being here, with the garden, the `palm forest,’ all around us, day after day, I think has taught me a great deal.” —W.S. Merwin

What will your legacy be?

Sanibel, Florida

Warm Gulf waters, uncrowded beaches, and an unspoiled landscape are a few of the reasons that Sanibel Island is the perfect spot to purchase a waterfront home. Sanibel Island’s east-west orientation makes it one of the most unique barrier islands in the world. Its fifteen-miles of pristine white-sand beaches and 250 kinds of sea shells add to its worldwide allure.  

Located minutes west of Fort Myers on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Sanibel Island is easily accessible to the mainland, yet its commitment to conservation makes it feel truly special. The island’s renowned Ding Darling Nature Preserve is home to more than 300 species of birds, 50 species of reptiles and amphibians, and over 30 types of mammals. “Sixty-five percent of the island is protected conservation land or wildlife refuge,” says Jim Hall, managing partner with VIP Realty Group in Sanibel, Florida.

Strict building regulations help preserve Sanibel Island’s unique look and feel. You won’t find any stop lights, chain restaurants, or high rises here. “The island is about ninety-percent built out,” Hall says. “There is very little development left.” Unique shops, great restaurants, and close-knit community atmosphere are just a few of the reasons that people are attracted to Sanibel Island.

A laid back lifestyle coupled with a plethora of recreational activities make for a great quality of life. Sanibel Island’s extensive bike trail system and new multi-million dollar recreational facility provide fun ways to enjoy it. “Great values and decreasing inventory make it the perfect time to buy a waterfront home on Sanibel Island,” notes Hall.

One of Sanibel Island’s premier waterfront homes is on Joewood Drive in the gated Gulf Ridge subdivision. The $2.775-million Old Florida style gulf-front home has breathtaking gulf views and an extensive list of amenities.  The two-acre property has an attached guest house as well as 100-feet of gulf-front footage and a sand beach.

Roanoke Reserve on Lake Gaston

One of the Carolina’s most hidden gems is Roanoke Reserve. A naturally preserved 35-acre wooded enclave that surrounds a deep-water cove with 2,850-feet of shoreline on the main lake, Roanoke Reserve is located on Lake Gaston near the North Carolina-Virginia border. First-time buyers of Reserve property have the advantage of choosing both the perfect spot among several options ─ more space and natural privacy, a smaller lot, or being part of a closer-knit community ─ and tailoring their home design and living space to be just right.   

Living on the Reserve is simplified by personalized concierge and living assistance programs. The whole custom approach makes it perfect as a favorite escape destination or year-round home base ─ with easy, carefree living for residents at all phases of life, their extended family, and friends.

“The authentic rural, friendly and more relaxed way of life reflected in the communities around the lake, close to the Reserve, take you back to simpler times. Yet, it’s an easy drive or just a mouse click to the rest of the world when you want or need to tune in,” says Anne Hartley, co-owner and developer with husband Al . 

The natural beauty, mixed forest, inspiring views of water and nature, and slightly buffered waterfront setting make the Reserve one-of-a-kind; not to mention the weather is most favorable with mild temperatures and a distinct change of seasons. In addition to the full spectrum of water-based activities, golf courses, a day spa, retro country stores, quaint restaurants, and shopping are all nearby.

Roanoke Reserve is two hours away from Williamsburg and Jamestown and an easy drive south to the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area or north to Richmond and DC.  Rosemont Vineyards and Winery is only a 15-minute drive from the Reserve. “We take great pride in making the Reserve a reality and always enjoy the opportunity to personally introduce this special place to newcomers,” says Hartley.

Roanoke Reserve is ideal for those seeking upscale waterfront living tuned to their personal lifestyle and stage in life ─ and value the eco-friendly principles of preservation, appreciation for nature and environmental compatibility.

Luxury Real Estate Marketing Tip: Meet the Henrys!

As a luxury real estate marketing professional you need to understand the Henrys.  HENRY is the acronym for “High Earner, Not Rich Yet”.  This level of affluent has an income of $100,000-249,999.  What is of note is that the Henrys’ have increased their spending in the luxury sector, and they are probably the ones that have contributed to the uptick in home purchasing. 

According to the Luxury Market Report by Unity Marketing, Henrys make up 80% of the affluent marketplace, which is equivalent to 21.3 million households in the United States, a significant number in the luxury market.  Their resurgence as buyers of luxury goods is a positive sign for the economy.  They are the spenders in the category referred to as “accessible luxury”.  Brands in the accessible luxury pantheon include Coach, Ralph Lauren, Tiffany, Kate Spade, Vera Wang, Michael Kors, Tommy Bahama, Restoration Hardware, Ann Taylor, Banana Republic, and Williams Sonoma. 

The mood of the Henrys is positive about the economy and optimistic about the future.  They will spend on experiences such as travel, the highest luxury spending category, because they identify themselves with what they have done more than what they own.  When they buy a home they want to hear the “story” of the home and the experience they will have living there.  In selling a home to the Henrys, stay away from the sales pitch and emphasize the emotional experience they will derive from their new lifestyle.

Heaven’s Landing

A beautiful, thriving fly-in community in Rabun County, Ga., Heaven’s Landing is one of only a handful of Mountain Estate Airparks in the country.  Weather in Rabun County is best described as “where spring spends the summer,” with mild temperatures throughout the year.  Being surrounded by the Chattahoochee National Forest ensures protection of the area against over development and buffers the development from any immediate neighbors, leaving residents with a feeling of peace and seclusion.

“Heaven’s Landing is unparalleled in lifestyle and recreational variety,” says Mike Ciochetti, Developer of Heaven’s Landing.  In addition to flying, residents and visitors have a variety of activities to choose from.  Lake Burton and Lake Rabun play host to an unlimited number of water sports including water skiing, knee boarding, tubing and jet skiing.  The more laidback individual can fish, sun bathe or cruise around clear waters of these pristine mountain lakes.  Several excellent golf courses also adorn the area.  The extreme sportsman can indulge themselves in whitewater rafting or kayaking on the Chattooga and Tallulah rivers.  Horseback riding, fly fishing, hunting and rock climbing are also available locally.

Just three miles southeast of Heaven’s Landing is downtown Clayton, Ga., plentiful with restaurants and shopping, without big city traffic.  “Living in Heaven’s Landing offers the perfect balance of seclusion without inconvenience, whether you are driving to town or flying across the country.”
