John Baek of Golden Town Realty Shares his Success Story
Several years ago, John Baek had to start over. He was leaving rebounding real estate market in the foothills of Orange County in Southern California for the rolling countryside of eastern Virginia. Basically, he was starting over, joining a Keller Williams agency in the Washington D.C. Metroplex.
A tough task, but John had a secret weapon: 30 plus years’ experience in all facets of real estate, including a strong background in business development. Baek is not only a REALTOR® but a Broker, Business Consultant and Certified Business Appraiser.
All that aside, he knew he needed to rebuild a past client and referral database that had been his bread and butter for two plus decades. Understandably, he started his search on the Internet. He needed a presence and he needed it fast.
“I began researching real estate websites, looking for something that would fit my needs. Having a good web presence is like wearing a tie. You know you have to have one, but you have a choice and making the right one makes all the difference.”
Baek was astounded when he came across Websitebox.com, this little $99 real estate site that claimed it had all the answers.
The more I looked, the better it got. I couldn’t believe it. It had every tool I needed to get started, complete with custom local content and a CRM system.
It was the beginning of a beautiful relationship.
In just a short time, Goldentown Investments Inc. has grown to become part of a full-service brokerage including a team of four with a full-time buyer’s agent and two licensed assistants. The team services Chantilly, Fairfax, Annandale, McLean, and Alexandria real estate markets.
Baek credits much of his success to quickly getting his website up and running.
“Here is why I love the product. First, it was turn-key ready. As soon as I provided by the basic information I was up and running, fully integrated with the main site and the MLS listings. Two, the customer service is incredible.”
They are always available and answer every question I have. Third, the price. $99? Are you kidding me?
