Who Doesn’t Like Ice Cream?

As a complement to our website — www.makeyourmovewithmari.com — we’ve teamed with our partners at industry resource Keeping Current Matters to launch a new video website that features up-to-date information about the real estate market. The latest posting is about the August housing market.

In addition to videos, the site features both Buyers and Sellers guides that you may download for helpful tips.

We’re always looking for new ways to provide information to our clients about the real estate market. It’s a complicated business with sometimes conflicting information from “experts” who often seem more interested in generating headlines and click bait than actual facts.

We hope you’ll find the new website helpful. Let us know what you think.


One of the current hot trends on the marketing side of real estate are “Mega-Open Houses.”

In California, they can involve food trucks and sometimes upwards of 100 visitors to an open house.

We’ve taken the idea and put our own spin on it by having an ice cream truck with complementary ice cream for our open house visitors. We advertise it not only through social media, but also by going door to door in the neighborhood with flyers promoting the open house and the free ice cream.

Two weekends ago we had Cape Cod Slush and Ice Cream at Saturday and Sunday Open Houses at different locations. We had a great turn out at both and made many new friends. (BTW..both houses are under contract significantly quicker than the average time on market for Cape Cod single family homes!)

If you’re thinking about selling your property, we’d be happy to meet with you to discuss your options. Is a Mega-Open House in your future?


The Mega Open House is just one idea that we’ve learned about through our association with the Tom Ferry organization.

We’re attending Ferry’s Success Summit 2019 at the Anaheim Convention Center this week. Not only will we be hearing from leading experts in our profession and attending breakout sessions on a variety of industry related topics, we’ll also have the chance to swap ideas with agents from around the country and as far away as Israel and and Australia.

This isn’t vacation, but a working event. So feel free to contact us if you have questions about what you saw on our new video website or are interested in selling your home or buying that dream house.

Thanks to our colleagues at Today Real Estate for helping us respond to any of your short term needs.

Enjoy your week…
