New Internet TV Show– Northwest Real Estate Forum — Debuts to Guide Real Estate Buyers and Sellers to Make All the Right Moves
(June 14, 2011 – Bellevue, WA, The Open Press) – Today a new internet TV show called Northwest Real Estate Forum debuts to guide residential real estate buyers and sellers to learn about local real estate issues and experts so they can make all the right moves. This initiative is the brainchild Patricia Wangsness, a top producing realtor with the top performing Bellevue office of Coldwell Banker Bain. She earned 5-Star Residential Real Estate Honors for Customer Satisfaction in 2010.
Wangness has one goal in mind with the new internet TV show. She seeks to educate a wide and growing audience of viewers who are curious about market conditions. She says, “Video is the easiest way for us to deliver information buyers and sellers need before they start the process of buying or selling. Whether consumers are buying, selling, or sitting on the sidelines, the Northwest Real Estate Forum program aims to communicate and educate those who need to navigate market conditions so they can make good decisions. The show is a vehicle to connect buyers and sellers with quality professional resources that can add value to their buying/selling process.”
The first video can be seen here. Viewers can opt-in to be notified of new videos as they debut. Each showcases local experts who address timely topics such as:
- How personal finances impact making the right buying, selling and renting decisions;
- Need to know basics before you apply for a mortgage;
- How to dance around the moving company bait and switch;
- The truth about Zillow;
- Home ownership before and after bankruptcy;
- New government rules for mortgage underwriting and what they mean to you;
- What it means for seniors to age in place;
- Escrow for newbies;
- The do’s and don’ts for interior design to optimize resale
Among the experts interviewed to date are Femme Finance Host and President of Sound Financial Partners Debbie Whitlock, VP of Sales – Coldwell Banker Bain Ron Sparks, Bankruptcy Attorney John Farver, Regional Sales Manager for Landover Mortgage Rhys Evans, Branch Manager for Escrow Professionals of Washington Angie Balconi, Principal of Seattle Aging Solutions Sara Shelton, and Principal of Moving Link Rick Harper.
Even in the most challenging days of the Great Recession, Wangsness closed dozens of deals to earn her place among the top performing agents at the #1 ranked Coldwell Banker Bain Office in Washington State. Among the keys to her success is her ingenuity about marketing. For example, she conceived the idea behind the Artful Open House™. For this event, Wangsness staged a million dollar home with original art from a Northwest artist to give locals a new reason to attend the open house. She sold the home on Super Bowl Sunday. She also conceived the idea for the Rendering the Possibilities™. For this event, Wangsness teamed with a local interior that makes it easy for buyers to visualize what a space can look like when remodeled or furnished in their own style. Adding video to the mix is just one more way Wangsness can be of deeper service to current and potential clients.
