You have to admit, real estate advertising is normally pretty boring (well we think it is anyway!). It's normally "come list with us, we're great" type stuff (yawn). No surprise - we thought we would do something a little different and have some fun trying some stuff out. So with one's tongue firmly planted in one's cheek, here are some examples from the last few weeks, along with a little background:

By re-engineering how real estate is done we have reduced the comission cost to sellers by a factor of 10-15 times. So we thought it would be fun to poke fun at the high cost of "old" agents:

And we liked the "old" agent comparison, so we modified it slightly for another go:
