the brennan group, increased
brand recognition & online lead generation With HMBD

In the highly saturated real estate industry, first impressions matter. The Association of Real Estate License Law Officials (ARELLO) , estimates that there are about 2 million active real estate licensees in the United States, and nearly 200 thousand real estate brokerage firms operating across the United States. Not to mention the average real estate experience of all realtors is 9 years. With so much competition it's important to stand out. Conor Brennan knew his brand identity was his greatest ally in an industry so ripe with competition.

When facilitating the sale of a home, business, plot of land, or even a whole town, like in the case of Conor Brennan selling The Town of Campo, it is imperative for brokers, real estate agents, realtors, and companies to not only look professional, but to provide the best representation of their clients' property. This not only shows their current clients that they value their business, but future clients that they're the best person to entrust with a major buying or selling decision.

Mindful prospective buyers and sellers want to work with brands high in value, that they feel they can trust to get the job done.

According to the National Federation of Realtors, "85% of buyers and sellers want to work with an agent who uses video as part of their marketing efforts."

What the statistic doesn't mention is 100% of buyers and sellers want to watch video without things like outdated clipart graphics, bad lighting, or poorly stitched-together cell phone images converted into video. Especially when they're trusting a professional to deal with such a large purchase or sale of a long-term investment.

Realtors who utilize professional, high-quality videos and photos in their marketing, instantly communicate a level of trustworthiness, which quickly helps attract more buyers and sellers!

The mission of The Brennan Group is to maximize their value to their clients' end goal. Their team meticulously strategizes how to position their client's assets to reach their ultimate target, and does so by combining traditional brokerage with the latest state-of-the-art technology.

In 2019 Conor Brennan approached HMBD for 4k photography and video for his marketing.
