Each week we will be profiling one of our clients allowing you to get to know them a little better…and I’m sure we’ll learn a few things as well.
When you launch a business, you always have your first customers. Those who, despite knowing that you’re new, embrace what you have to offer and if you’re lucky continue to provide feedback that is crucial to your growth and success. For us, one of our very first real estate customers was Nathan Pfahler. We remember that first meeting with him nearly 2 years ago and can’t forget his enthusiasm and lucky for us that excitement hasn’t gone away. Nate has provided us with invaluable market research as we continue to enhance our service and has brought many new customers our way.
How long have you been a realtor?
I am currently in my 4th year as a realtor
Why real estate?
I have always had an affinity for houses, and used to drag my mom to open houses as a young teen. After being in Corporate America for a while, I decided it was time to use my marketing, negotiating and design skills to assist those needing to buy or sell a home. I get a rush when I see someone’s face light up as they realize they’ve just stepped into their new home!
What’s your favorite area to show homes and why?
I have always had an attraction to older homes, ie historichomes. Probably stems from being an HGTV junkie before there even was such a thing. I used to love watching THIS OLD HOUSE as a kid. That being said- I love showing and selling homes in the Irvington, Broad Ripple, Meridian-Kessler, Butler Tarkington and near-downtown neighborhoods. On the flip side, I also love 1950’s contemporaries and downtown hi-rise condo developments.
What do you do in your spare time?
Well, let’s see, I don’t seem to have much “spare” time, but that is by design. I enjoy being involved- in networking activities, volunteer roles, and within my Church. I am very active in RAINMAKERS and divide my other volunteer time between such organizations as Second Helpings and The 500 Festival, as well as serve on committees for the Irvington Presbyterian Church and several Irvington-area initiatives.
***Note*** That’s Nate in the picture taking kids from his church trick or treating last year.
What impact has mobile marketing had for you?
During sales presentations, clients really think this is a neat addition to our current marketing plan for listed homes. Even if they themselves are not “tech savvy”, most realize that a lot of people are, and that the way people get information is always changing. The service has helped me to attract both potential buyers and sellers.
