Direct Mail

Direct mail outs are effective in capturing interested parties. It is a way to specifically seek out a niche part of the public.

For example we recently did an Auction for an affordable riverfront apartment. And as such a direct mail out wielded great power in informing local residence of the Auction and more importantly of the opportunity in buying the apartment. As such, we saw numbers grow in home opens and viewings- all the locals coming down to see what this apartment had to offer.
