Lancaster County PA Realty Check: Brian Schulman Joins a New Office - All Due to Blogging!

Brian Schulman Joins a New Office - All Due to Blogging!

Coldwell Banker Select ProfessionalsOver a year ago, I started noticing some excellent photographs being posted on localism.com for various towns and boroughs in Lancaster County, PA.  Since I was posting numerous photos myself, I soon became familiar with the professional quality photography of Jeff Geoghan.

It turned out that Jeff had taken notice of my blogging, too!  One day, out of the blue, I received a phone call:  "Guess who this is!"  Over the ensuing months, we had lunch together several times, also including fellow blogger Jeannie Kontis, and discussed blogging and Lancaster County real estate matters.

In the mean time, exciting things were happening in the Lancaster County real estate industry.  A large local company changed franchises, allowing the well-known and desirable Coldwell Banker name to be picked up by a top quality, aggressive local marketer.  The company that qualified to fill the bill is now known as Coldwell Banker Select Professionals.

Jeff Geoghan was asked to become Coldwell Banker Select Professional's Vice President of Marketing.  And Jeff, who specializes in Internet marketing, and who knows of my own involvement on the Internet, has asked me to join him as a team-mate.  And it's all due to our blogging!

Now, my mother didn't raise any foolish sons.  I recognized a great opportunity when I saw it.  Coldwell Banker Select Professionals has excellent marketing programs, plus an unmatched selection of affiliated services, including (but not limited to) in-house mortgage services, title services, and almost any home repair or remodeling need you can think of.

I look forward to working with Jeff, continuing to provide my clients with personal, customized real estate service, and joining Jeff to create a team that provides the highest quality experience to Lancaster County home buyers and sellers!

Hi Debi, thanks for the good wishes!

Marilyn, you certainly don't know exactly what can come from blogging, but if you're consistent, great things can happen!

Brian,

If you've read my blogs regularly you know how I feel about 'one stop shops'...that said, I wish you the best of luck...you're a straight up guy and a great blogger!!! Thanks,   Fran

Fran, one thing I prize for both myself and my clients is excellent service.  I have met the personnel in Select Professionals' title company, and I already knew some of the folks in the mortgage division.  These are good people.  Trust me, I wouldn't use in-house services if I didn't feel comfortable that they were giving my clients top quality results!

I know you're a first-class independent, and I understand your viewpoint.

Thanks,  Brian

Congratulations, Brian!!
Prior to being with Royal Lepage ProAlliance, I and numerous of my peers, including my sales manager/broker, were part of Coldwell Banker Nelles. Then C-B Nelles melded with Royal Lepage. I used to love being part of Coldwell Banker. They are an excellent organization and offer a great deal to the individual sales representative, not to mention an excellent name in the industry.

I think you and Jeff make a winning team and I can picture great strides taking place in your career.

Jo,

Thank you so much for your good wishes!  I do feel it's going to be an excellent career move.

I'm happy to hear about the good feelings you had about having been associated with Coldwell Banker.  They actually have the #1 recognition factor of all real estate franchises, with 96% of the public recognizing the name.

I'm excited about working with Jeff.  I think we can both learn from each other, and hopefully the combination will exceed the sum of its parts!

Jennifer, I must admit I never expected that such a radical change in my life could occur as a result of my blogging!

Brian, congrats on the move!  I had a sneaking suspicion that a move was going to be in your future!

I know you will appreciate all that CB has to offer and that you will have great success working alongside Jeff.  Wishing you all the best.

Posted by Jeannie Kontis over 9 years ago

Christopher & Stephanie, thanks for the good thoughts. Maybe some day we can do business together!

Hi Jeannie,

What gave you the suspicion that there was a move in my future?   ;o)   You're right - from what I can see, CB does have a lot to offer. In any case, Select Pros has a great bunch of people.

Call me when you get a chance -

Brian
