"How to make social media work for you in luxury real estate."
Hall was kind enough to break down his strategy for me.
“People love to look at beautiful homes and puppies. So I craft content around our listings using stunning [professional] photography and video. Then, I put an ad spend behind that, so we 10x the number of people who see our content.”
"Christie Brinkley Re-lists Her 2 Homes in the Hamptons: Why Haven't They Sold Yet?"
"In my experience, the formula comes down to price + condition + exposure = a sale," says Damian Hall, a real estate agent from Greenville, SC. "If one of those is off, it could easily create a situation where the home doesn't sell and needs a fresh strategy."
"Finding the right agent for home sellers."
“The days are gone where a real estate broker simply places a sign in the yard, enters it into (the Multiple Listing Service) and sits around their office waiting for it to sell,” says Damian D. Hall, a real estate broker in Greenville, S.C.
For sellers, that means searching for a proactive, technology-savvy agent, Hall says. Because buyers start with the Internet, he says “photos must be professional, magazine quality, and the description has to be detailed and really sizzle.” Also, look for an agent who has some social-media marketing muscle. “It’s scary how much Facebook alone knows about its users, but at the same time it’s pure gold for those looking to put a product — or in our case, a listing — in front of the consumer most likely to buy the house,” he says.

8 Castles That Blend the Medieval with the Modern
They began as practical buildings meant to defend the property of landed families from invasion, and later entered the popular imagination as the sites of romantic tales of chivalric knights and courtly love. But castles aren’t just the atmospheric backdrops for fairy tales, period dramas, and Hollywood films: Some of these historic fortresses have been converted into luxuriously appointed private homes. Whether the castle of your dreams is gothic, baroque, or neoclassical, these magnificent residences are exemplars of master craftsmanship that inspire with their grand proportions and timeless charm.

Tucked away in the North Carolina mountains stands an empty castle.
While that may sound like the beginning of a fairytale, this castle does exist in the small town of Tuskasegee, N.C. However, when you make the long drive through the North Carolina mountains to Tuskasegee Valley, outside of Cashiers, and find your way to the heavy wooden entrance gate, you do feel like you’ve fallen into a magical realm, exactly as the owner-designer intended.
DHG Turner House Featured in TOWN Magazine
William “Willie” Riddle Ward, Jr. (1890–1984), one of the most notable Southern architects in history, built a career on these ideas. And he was prolific—having designed more than 133 residential and commercial structures in the state of South Carolina alone. Throughout his 41-year tenure in Greenville, Ward was known for his partiality toward the Tudor, Classical, and Colonial Revival styles popular during the first half of the twentieth century. He insisted on using high-quality materials with meticulous attention to detail, and although his designs follow many tenets of their respective stylistic categories, Ward’s signature is present in his individually designed moldings and millwork.

When Melinda Courtland purchased her Landrum, S.C., vacation home four years ago, she wanted it to be different from her Bahamas-style Vero Beach, Fla., home. When she first visited the Landrum property, Ms. Courtland, a lover of antiques and collector of rare books, was impressed by the home’s details, like its double-height library inspired by one in Scotland. “I feel like I’m on vacation in a foreign country every time I arrive,” she says of the 21-acre property, which she is selling because she now finds it too large for one person.
