Madison Park homes for saleTake A Niche Marketing Approach –  Accept that Seattle’s Madison Park is not just a neighborhood, but is a true niche market.

niche  niCH,nēSH/ as an adjective   denoting or relating to products, services, or interests that appeal to a small, specialized section of the population.
Instead of looking for the historical “best  Madison Park Realtor” or company that everyone has used for years, hire a niche specialist who brings a fresh but proven sales and marketing approach. Ask for referrals and ask for examples of that success.  Molly and I recently closed on a Madison Park home for sale and were surprised at how many of the things we always do to sell our listings were not known to the seller or nearby neighbors.
We still include all the basic tried and true neighborhood marketing tasks, but we go further. Our focus on niche marketing has enabled us to come us with a more targeted approach which we can then apply to our Madison Park listings.  If you think about it, Madison Park is not just a neighborhood market, but truly a niche and who better to sell a Madison Park home for top dollar than someone who focuses on niche marketing?
