There ain’t no Font Big Enough

There Aint no Font Big Enough
There Aint no Font Big Enough

After driving by an entire community full of these benches for a good month and wondering what the hell they had emblazoned on them I decided to stop in front, take a picture, go back to Head Quarters and and have the staff forensically analyze.  Our crack squad has come to a consensus that this is THEBCHOMEHUNTERGROUP’s late night with a deadline at the printers Brand Miracle.

“Listen baby, ain’t no font high enough,
Ain’t no icons low enough, ain’t no tagline wide enough baby
If you need me call me, no matter where you are,” – with our apologies to Marvin Gaye

There is no tagline left behind, no domain name is too large and there ain’t no font big enough to satisfy this group.  Specializing in Urban and Suburban real estate narrows down their field of expertise and it is delightfully emblazoned with some circly things as well which our lab is still investigating. Yes why pay professionals to develop a campaign when this Diamond can be created at 2:36AM the night before?

Congratulations THEBCHOMEHUNTERGROUP of Sutton Westcoast Gold Award for Late Night with a Deadline Brand Creation Excellence!

The Happy Thinker

downloadDanette Ball       Real Estate sales is all about trust and knowledge but Danette Ball of Coldwell Banker Ti-Tel Realty in Maple Ridge, British Columbia has thrown that to the wind with this revolutionary tactic. During  a lengthy toilet visit one afternoon she discovered her father’s copy of the acclaimed bathroom book Awkward Family Photos.  What followed was one of those moments of inspiration that rarely come in one’s life and if not acted upon tends to be lost forever.  Yes the Real Estate Thinker was hatched.  Danette is clearly lost in happy contemplation of selling you your Dream Home.  Her doe eyed stare into space represents all your hopes, dreams and aspirations.  Her marketing genius is evident, the time and effort spent to create this campaign is staggering. No one else would have thought that the local drug store photo lab could have captured this moment with such passion.  The same passion she has for her career in Real Estate. Congratulations Danette Ball  REALTOR® Gold Award for Photographic Excellence!

Things are just plain Wacko in Calgary

Things are just plain Wacko in Calgary
You’d be crazy not to use her

If you think prices in Calgary, Alberta are insane then you would be crazy not to use Wendy Wacko of Royal LePage Foothills Realty. Getting through all the deal paperwork can make you go nuts and having a trusted Realtor advisor clears the mind like only electric shock therapy can.

You’ll be delirious with the fruity maniacal laughter of success when Wendy gets you the nutty as a fruitcake deal you’ve been looking for. I can not emphasize enough that you would be of unsound mind after comparing to not use Wendy Wacko. No screwball moves here just an agent able to get you bonkers deals in Real Estate in the Calgary area.

Gold Nomination for Best Name in Real Estate 2013, watch out Rich Wanket!

Century 21 ? Oh my my

Image

Remember the Gold Jackets?  How about “We’re national but neighborly”?

Kiss away the $100’s of millions of advertising spent over decades establishing a brand that is synonymous with real estate in North America and all the popular culture references that reinforce this icon status, like in the Michael Keaton movie Betelgeuse for example.

Nope, in 2013 we are the outfit that handles your home like the toxic waste that it is and we admit we don’t need to be very bright to do it.  We are here to insult your intelligence by juxtaposing a physicist for a Realtor and completely changing our color scheme to further distance ourselves from our past success.  Even Hollywood B movie directors would give second thought to portraying Plutonium with a green glowing fluorescent light tube but Century 21 has. Sit back and relax as the Plan 9 from Outer Space realtors of Century 21 treat your home like the level 5 biohazard that it truly is, yellow caution tape and all. This is not a bad realtor ad or bad realtor advertising

BEFORE YOU READ ANY FURTHER CLICK ON THE IMAGE FOR THE ULTRA CLOSEUP

In the difficult to predict, fast paced world of Real Estate investing it is nice to know that there are Realtors that use tactics as old as time itself to help their customers.  Take Sutton Group Realty’s very own Carlo Melo who is taking it old school with his advertising.  This sign says many things visually, look deep into his eyes and relax…yes relax…relaaaaax.  Your eyelids are getting heavy, you are very tired.   Good… you will buy this home and feel refreshed when you wake up.  You will completely lose the urge to smoke, the taste of Coca Cola is now revolting to you. This is not a bad realtor ad or bad realtor advertising

Schooled by the very hands of Criss Angel Mindfreak, if you can’t dazzle them with the brilliance of your product then baffle them with the Science of the Mind. Carlo can be seen selling Real Estate, appearing on Cruise Ships and the occasional Casino Show room, two clairvoyant hypnotism shows every Friday night.

One eye on the Future, one on the Past

Duane Meeks knows where he's been
Duane Meeks knows where he’s been

A new category for Excellence in Real Estate Photography has been proposed and our first nominee is a man who not only knows where he is going in life, but always keeps one eye on the past.

Like the mailman neither rain nor snow nor a really good song on the radio will prevent Realtor Duane Meeks of Remax Little Oak Realty from practicing his craft.  Why hire a professional photographer when such beautiful Curb Appeal can be showcased merely by rolling down the car window and raising the bar in marketing.  Every picture is worth a thousand words and most of those words in this picture speak to Duane’s incredible eye for symbolism.  How can we as an Industry know where we are going if we forget where we have been?  Not to be mistaken as laziness, in an industry of run of the mill high-end photography, Duane knows that this shock treatment will get his listing noticed.  Especially here at the Real “Ad” tor Awards.  This is not a bad realtor ad or bad realtor advertising

Gold Nominee

The Vampire Demographic

Freya Prit
Freyja Prit Immortal Realtor

Yes the riches are in the niches and this is one niche that has yet to be exploited save for our savvy nominee Realtor Prit Toor (aka Freyja Prit).  The almost completely unexplored world of late night Real Estate is just a call away with this day light avoiding purveyor of immortal land deals.  Not one drop of your sweet blood should be shed searching for a finer sales rep and marketer of land then Ms. Toor, skills she learned in the old country.  Don’t let those fangs fool you, she will bite off the competition and drain them of all arguments when it comes time to negotiate.  You may not see her in the daylight but you will feel like joining her and her team of minions after she makes you feel like a never dying member of her family.  You will be so grateful you will want to serve her, and you will.  It would be a grave mistake to not hire Prit Toor given that there is so much at stake. This is not a bad realtor ad or bad realtor advertising

Yogi Katheran and the Flying Circus

Katheran Milne
The Amazing Levitation skills of Katheran Milne

Heard about Yogic flying? How about Realtic floating? Looking for a Realtor that literally rises above the rest?  A little magic the rest of the pack doesn’t possess or understand?   You would think that to get this type of thinking you would have to source a 38th level Scientologist but no my friend Katheran & Co will be there for you when you’re feeling a bit too grounded with real estate troubles.  Even the Great Blue Heron is in awe of her ability to lift up business around her service area, it really is a black & white choice.

Not since Larry Hagman  found Barbara Eden in that bottle has such a talent been unleashed on the human race and if you don’t see it well I’m sorry for what you are about to settle for, Yogi Katheran Milne,… err Realtor Katheran Milne and her Flying Circus put Monty Python to shame.  Even JLo herself doesn’t cast as great a shadow as Katheran does over this Industry.  Your first call in Powell River is to KFlo. This is not a bad realtor ad or bad realtor advertising

Platinum Nomination.
