Friendly and Caring Dog Daycare and Boarding, EaDo, #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

When it comes to having a dog, there’s a lot that goes into taking care of them. Sometimes you even need to lean on someone else to make sure they’re getting the care they need when you’re out of town or unable to tend to them daily due to work. That’s where this week’s spotlighted business comes in. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Erica,the owner of The Green Bone.

The Green Bone all started thanks to a lively Boston Terrier named Quentin. He was full of energy and Erica had to work long days so she wanted to be able to find somewhere enjoyable for him where he could play while she was out. One thing that was very important was that she wanted a friendly, personable environment where each dog is loved and cared for as if they were in their own home with family. Quentin, along with her love for other dogs and animals, helped establish The Green Bone.

For more information on The Green Bone and to inquire about boarding, you can check them out online at http://www.thegreenbone.net/

The Meetup in San Diego [Main Takeaways]

Last weekend, I went to San Diego for “The Meetup” – a one-day social media & video marketing conference hosted by Conor Murnane and Neel Dhingra. I was super fortunate to have been asked to speak and was lucky to share some of my success with social media and what’s worked to generate business for our team.

Some of the main takeaways:

@ZacharyLoft

Zach is a real estate agent and TikTok superstar (my words, not his) out of Delaware. He coaches agents on social media, runs a brokerage, enjoys tacos, and is a kick-ass human.

  • You’re not going to get results by posting a few videos. You need to post one new video a week minimum.
  • You can’t advertise to someone effectively if they don’t know who you are.
  • Zach used the analogy of meeting someone in a bar and asking them to come meet your parents. This is effectively what most people do with real estate marketing. “Let me help you buy or sell” – when instead, you should work to brand yourself, market, and eventually have the ask.
  • Branding is a 2-3 year game. Branding is what people think, hear, or say when they see, hear or think about you.
  • Everyone is going after business yet, no one is willing to do the effort to show value.

Taya DiCarlo

Taya is a SoCal real estate agent that, when not selling real estate or being super mom, is roller skating her way through Southern California. It’s been fun knowing Taya over the years to see the progression in her video content and her weekly series like “Taya’s Two Cents” are absolutely amazing – hilarious, informative, and top-notch.

  • The view count on social media doesn’t matter, it’s about your responses. You need to respond to your followers.
  • Money doesn’t solve your problems. But it gives you choices.
  • Batch your content! You should have a day or two per month that you meet with your videographer to do a day of shooting videos.
  • Outsourcing and having a marketing coordinator and videographer will free up time to allow you to focus on the highest and best use of time.
  • Repurpose your content and post on ALL social media sites.

Katie Day (me!)

I live in Texas and sell a few homes. I talked about the Top 5 FREE things that have worked for me on social:

  • Consistent Stories and Engagement – use stickers, polls, questions
  • Highlight a Personal Hobby or Passion – you can meet new people, it’s something you’re passionate and excited to talk about
  • Community Spotlights – get involved with business owners and entrepreneurs in your area
  • Use Q&A to engage your audience
  • GO LIVE! You can go live on Facebook, Instagram, or YouTube

All of these things are effectively free and great ways to create engagement on Social Media.

Giselle Ugarte

Not only does Giselle wear badass shoes, she is also a marketing consultant, motivational speaker and online performance coach. You can’t not be inspired when following her on TikTok and Instagram – her content is on another level. Plus, she coaches, trains, and motivates entrepreneurs across the country.

  • If you don’t like how you look or sound… hate to break it to you, but that’s how you look and how you sound. It won’t change!
  • You can’t have ROI without IOR Identifying Opportunities and Relationship. IOR also stands for Intentional Objectives and Resonance
  • When was the last time you used the word “You” in shooting a video. You resonates. Make eye contact when you’re making a video. Start using the word “You” in your videos.
  • Introduce yourself with enthusiasm. Think: all caps with an exclamation point!! Start and end with your name.

Neel Dhingra

If you haven’t heard of @neelhome, you’re missing out. This man is a CONTENT machine. I can guarantee if you follow him on social, you will learn SO much! Not only does he kill it as a mortgage professional, he also helps real estate professionals to create content. Check out Neel’s Content Day to jumpstart your social media & content journey.

  • As of 2020, 200+ companies have invested in the real estate field – that’s over $35 Billion.
  • The tool we have to differentiate ourselves is video and content.
  • Good videos must be relevant and structured, and you need to speak intelligently.
  • Speak to one person when shooting ie: “I’m going to tell YOU, how to not make this mistake when buying a rental property.”

Tamika Ellsworth

If you haven’t heard of #RedBowMagic, check out T and her content on Instagram and TikTok. She is entertaining. She is educational. She is just kind. On her social, she highlights information about buying a home in California, shares stories about her clients purchasing homes, and also does some funny skit/dance videos, as well.

  • Short Form video generally performs better when it’s less than :30.
  • Leave something out or leave a cliffhanger.
  • Tell a story – something emotional or heartfelt.
  • Highlight the highs and lows with your clients.

Tyler Auerbacher

Tyler is the founder of Dippidi Real Estate Marketing, a company that helps real estate agents to create and manage ad campaigns on Facebook, Instagram, & Google to increase brand awareness & develop trust from potential prospects. His company just released The Real Estate Video Marketing Playbook, which is THE guide and framework if you’re looking to step up your video game.

Create a client avatar:

  • Who? Are the three top clients you enjoyed working with?
  • What? What do those people enjoy doing? Reading? Consuming?
  • Where? Where are your clients? Instagram? Facebook? TikTok?
  • When? When does your audience engage with you? Analytics
  • Why? Why do you do what you do and why do your clients choose to work with you?

Kyle Whissel

Kyle’s a team leader and is well-known for creating video content and highlighting his local area. At the conference, Kyle focused in on one-to-one video. If you haven’t heard of it before, it’s a powerful way to communicate with friends, family, co-workers, clients, and prospects.

  • Focus on one-to-one video (ie: a video text to a friend or client)
  • One video can change someones life.
  • Send a video before you meet the client!
  • Go above and beyond and make people feel special in times that they deserve to feel special!

Tea Bar with Fresh and Delicious Drinks, #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

If you’re looking for a delicious and premium boba tea experience, then we’ve got a spot you definitely need to check out. For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Li Luong the owner of Teapresso Bar Houston to learn more about the business.

Teapresso was founded in 2014 in Honolulu, Hawaii with the vision in mind of bringing a healthier alternative to the coffee and milk tea market. There are 17 locations throughout Hawaii and then in May of 2018, University of Houston graduates Li and Patrick brought Teapresso to Houston. They had traveled the world and had really enjoyed Teapresso and wanted to bring that level of quality that they thought was missing to Houston. They have since expanded beyond their original location to open in Sugar Land and will soon be opening a location in EaDo. To learn more about Teapresso and to check out their menu, you can find them online at https://www.teapressobartx.com/

Local Gym That Values Community & Quality Service, Rice Military #movemetotx #NeighborhoodSpotlight

If you’ve been on the hunt for a new Houston gym that values community and helping their clients achieve their fitness goals, then you’re in luck because we have found the spot for you! For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we talk to Wes Simon, a personal trainer at Oak Fitness, to find out more about their gym.

Oak Fitness, which opened in 2020, is located in the heart of Houston in the Washington Corridor neighborhood. One of the things that they wanted to stray away from was the traditional gym setting where the personal trainers resemble sales people and their main concern isn’t necessarily your health. To accompany this goal, their core values are integrity, teamwork, perseverance, cleanliness, and community. They offer personal training, strength and conditioning training, yoga, and other fitness regiments. Overall, their main goal is to make sure their clients receive excellent service accompanied by a fun workout environment.

To find out more about Oak Fitness or to inquire about a gym trial, you can visit them online at https://www.oak-fitness.com/

Fast Casual Formal Seafood Restaurant, Heights, #NeighborhoodSpotlight #movemetotx

If you’re looking for a “fast casual” formal seafood restaurant that is reminiscent of East Texas Lakeside Fish joints, then we’ve got the spot for you! For this week’s #NeighborhoodSpotlight, join us as we meet with Roy Gonzales, the general manager of Flying Fish, to learn a bit more about this unique restaurant.

When it comes to seafood, this restaurant has got it all. From catfish, to shrimp and oysters, to fish cocktail, crab legs, crawfish and more! This restaurant also likes to have a lot of fun and one of the ways they do that is by offering customers the chance to participate in their “Liar’s Wall.” They encourage guests to bring in a photo of them and their big catch and lie about its size so that the wall is covered in fake fishing accomplishments.

For more information on Flying Fish or to check out their menu, you can visit them online at https://www.flyingfishinthe.net/index

Houston Restaurant Week – Our Picks!

It’s that time of year again – Houston Restaurant Weeks! Although there are a few differences due to COVID-19, HRW is still providing diners with an opportunity to try new restaurants while also benefiting the Houston Food Bank. Spanning the entire month of August (and into September), Houston Restaurant Weeks is one of the largest annual fundraisers for the Houston Food Bank. It was originally founded by Cleverly Stone in 2003. For each meal purchased, restaurants will donate $1 to the Food Bank, which generates 3 meals for Houstonians.

The list of restaurants can sometimes look long and it can be hard to know where to start, so we want to share some of our team’s favorite restaurants!

Katie Day Favorites:

Harold’s: You have to try the KG’s Double Brined Chicken!

Kin Dee Thai: The Southern Style Green Curry is a must-try.

Xin Chào: The Steak/bò lúc lác is my top pick here!

Ryan Steer Favorites:

Roost: The Roost’s Famous Cauliflower is delicious! And if you’re wanting to finish off with dessert, you have to try the Quattro Leches Cake!

Traveler’s Table: The Shiitake Edamame Dumplings and Beef Cheek Ravioli are amazing.

Buffalo Bayou Brewery: You’ve got to try the TX Haute Pockets!

Andrea Sanchez Favorites

Avenida Brazil Churrascaria Steakhouse: Love the Brazilian Cheese Bread! It’s so addicting! 
The picanha is my favorite meat selection! It is so juicy and tender! Don’t forget to save room for the Brazilian flan! 

Steamboat House: Camarones de San Antonio are amazing both fried or grilled. Happy to see that the crab cakes are featured on the Houston Restaurant Week menu (Seafood Trio). These are some of my favorites! 

Anneka Harralson Favorites

Osso & Kristalla: Calamari Fritti and Chicken Picatta are my faves!

Weights + Measures: Everything is so fresh! The charcuterie and salmon tartare are the way to go for apps.

Common Bond: Can’t leave without trying their Macaron Trio!

Mike Brand Favorites

Niko Niko’s: The Gyro Sandwich Plate is a classic and never disappoints!

Revelry on Richmond: You’ve got to try the Montrose Burger!

Pronto Cucinino: The Chicken Vincent is my favorite here!

Sarah Stokes Favorites

Liberty Kitchen & Oysterette: Their oysters are to die for and their Texas redfish is absolutely delicious!

Cadillac Bar: If you’re looking for some fantastic Tex-Mex, this is your spot! I personally love fajitas but you can’t go wrong with any of their combo plates.

Shari Bingham Favorites

Roost: The Coffee N’ Donut Holes are the jam…I have a sweet tooth

Brennan’s of Houston: Can’t go wrong with anything here but I love their Eggs Benedict on the brunch menu!

The Grove: The Salmon Fillet is delicious!

Thanh Ly Favorites

Hearsay Market Square: My favorite dish is the Bacon Wrapped Shrimp & Grits

Traveler’s Table: Try the Mango Lassi Panna Cotta!

There are SO many great restaurants on the Houston Restaurant Weeks list – and many more are being added! Select restaurants are offering both dine-in and to-go service, so be sure to check to see if reservations are required, if walk-in’s are welcome, or if they are doing to-go food for HRW.

Let us know where you’re headed in the comments below!
