Prudential Georgia Realty’s John Jacobus Recognized for Internet Marketing Excellence


Atlanta, GA – April 1, 2010 – (RealEstateRama) — Nationally renowned real estate marketing and technology speaker and® Vice President, Max Pigman, has presented to Realtor John Jacobus of Prudential Georgia Realty the “Real Estate Online Marketing Award of Excellence”.  The Award of Excellence recognizes top agents who consistently provide great marketing services on behalf of their buyers and sellers.

“There are always some real estate agents who distinguish themselves from other agents by doing a little more for their sellers. In particular; when the home they are selling is placed on a well trafficked site such as the 1st ranked®, even simple efforts like having more photos displayed, crafting better descriptions or adding a full motion video, can make a home stand out from competing properties,” says Max Pigman, Vice President of®.

The excellence award was presented to John Jacobus in March at a real estate marketing and technology seminar that demonstrated cutting edge techniques for leveraging the Internet and technology in real estate marketing.

“My seller clients appreciate how I can help bring more attention to the unique selling attributes of a their home and ultimately help attract more qualified buyers,” said John Jacobus, who is based out of Prudential’s Midtown office and specializes in residential real estate in Atlanta, Midtown and Buckhead. “Buyers are also appreciative of a well presented home that has a better description and more ways to learn about the property before arranging an appointment. While it’s certainly an honor to receive this award, I think ultimately it would be a disservice not to make® and the Internet part of your standard home marketing plan. Some day soon most agents will see it as a must have requirement instead of something special. We’re already seeing that change.”

“The extra steps agents like John Jacobus are taking on behalf of their clients is the reason we thought it worthwhile to call out the effort we have seen these agents make online and to recognize them for providing these added value services,” says Mr. Pigman.® is just one of the many ways Jacobus is leveraging recent trends in home buyer online behavior to benefit his clients.
