OUR TEAM WOULD LIKE THE OPPORTUNITY TO HELP YOU SELL YOUR HOME.
There are a few key points that I believe set The Melissa Thompson - Your Key to Memphis Real Estate Team apart
from other real estate professionals:
WE HAVE A 10 PERSON TEAM
This allows Melissa to be 100% focused on marketing and selling our listings.
OUR IN-HOUSE FULL TIME MARKETING DIRECTOR markets only The Melissa Thompson Team’s listings, so your
home gets unparalleled attention and service.
OUR CLOSING COORDINATOR ensures that the hardest and most stressful part of the sales process is buttoned up
We do more than sell houses. We solve problems. We create solutions. We connect the dots. We are the space
between where you are and where you are going.
Many agents think their most important job is satisfying the customer. We believe that satisfying the customer is
simply the MINIMUM requirement for staying in business. We work constantly to improve our systems, processes,
and services to go well beyond the standard level of service provided by most agents.
We want to make you so satisfied with your real estate experience that you gladly refer us to your friends and family.
We are truly looking forward to working with you.
All my best,
ABR, CRS, GRI, SFR, SRES, E-Pro, CLHMS

The Melissa Thompson - Your Key to Memphis Team
Visually Stand Out Among The Competition
Professional Photography is essential to a successful home sale. We include professional real estate photography with every listing, as part of our full service commitment to you. Our photographers are some of the best in the business and provide stunning photos to ensure your listing visually stands out among the competition.
If you've searched for homes in the market lately, you've likely noted that many properties are photographed with digital cameras or even smart phones, and the result is obvious. We want our properties to stand out and impress potential buyers at first glance, and draw people in to want to see more. A buyer will often see hundreds of home photos before they will ever set foot in a property, so we need our "first showing" of your home to be as impressive as possible.
Facebook Sneak Previews
In the 24 hours prior to your listing going live in the MLS, we run a Facebook Sneak Preview and can guarantee
500+ views of your home by people within a 5 mile radius of Memphis, prior to the home ever being listed! This
creates buyer inquiries & urgency, and can also help us track the traffic & let you know how your listing is stacking
up against other successful home sales.
Unparalleled Internet Presence and Social Media Exposure
Our Listings receive an unparalleled amount of internet exposure.

National Name Recognition
Here’s where your home will be featured.
We always challange our clients to try and find a reputable real
estate website that their home is NOT on, and can guarantee
we’ll get it there! Our coverage online is exhaustive.
Your very own custom home website!
We’ll create a custom website specific to your home. It will have a unique domain name for your street address, and it will be syndicated to more than 20 major property search portals such as Zillow, HotPads.com, and Homes.com. This link will give us an easy way to spread the word about the home quickly and gives us a unique address to pass out, that will be for a site that doesn’t feature any other competitive homes!
These sites are beautiful, and include all of the most important marketing features about your home - photos, floor plans, improvements, a survey of the lot and anything else we want to highlight to consumers.
Enhanced Marketing and Lead Capture
WE KNOW HOW TO REACH TODAY'S BUYERS!
93% of Buyers Searched Online - We engage with buyers by promoting your home as they find it online, then market your home's features so they want to visit it.
We execute a marketing strategy around the 3 P's:
PROMOTION & MARKETING
In our efforts to market and sell your property, we'll use text messaging lead capture wherever possible. This technique allows us to capture cell numbers in real time so we can do an effective job of converting qualified prospects into appointments to see your property.
Marketing to Other Agents
There is one simple step that most of our competitors
never think to take. We’re going to reach out to the
agents who have most recently participated in sales in
your neighborhood or of similar homes. There is a
chance that they may have a leftover buyer for the
same area, or that might have some market insight
from their sale that could be useful to ours. It’s our
job to keep your property top of mind with
Individual Property Booklets
For every home we list, we place an array of marketing materials in the home. We always aim to include floor plans, a list of improvements, information about the neighborhood, information about local attractions, information about local schools, and more. We put all of these things into small booklets that every buyer is welcome to take from the home. We find that when comparing our homes against the many others a purchaser may see in a day, these booklets make us memorable and helps buyers and their agents overcome most objections and questions before they even leave the house.
Professional Print Advertising
Your Home in Print
Within 10 days of your home being listed in the MLS, your
neighborhood will receive a “Just Listed” postcard,
appealing to them to help us find a buyer and reminding
them that a strong home sale for you is a positive for the
Your neighbors are often the biggest advocates for the area
and may have friends who want to live nearby, so while
some of them may just be curious, we want them to be as
informed as possible.
We know that people move-up to homes roughly 30% more
expensive than their current home. We will choose 2-3
neighboors with a price range 30% below yours, with
owners who we think might be appropriate move-up buyers
for your home. We will target market via direct mail to those
households. This is a technique that we have not seen our
competitors utilizing, and is an extremely strategic way to
find your buyer.
Getting Ready for the Sale
Once you decide to hire Melissa Thompson’s team to sell your home, we will visit your house to prepare the punch list and make recommendations. If you need a professional stager, we will schedule you a FREE one-hour home staging consultation (A $150 Value!)
When the home is ready for the market, our photographer will come out for photos and we will set the initial market offering price.
Showings can start as soon as the home hits the Multiple Listing Service, so be ready to move quickly!
Remember that you do NOT want to be home for showings, as the buyer agent and buyers crave privacy as they consider your property.
Our team of experts lifts the burden and we transform your home
by staging it to increase the value of your home and sell faster.
