OK, this is eerily similar to my last video entry with one small change. The other video was also done for the national Century 21 YouTube video contest that is currently running (Please vote here by clicking the "Vote" tab and giving me a green thumbs up!). The rules for that one were 2 minutes max and you can't mention the specific property address in the video. I added :11 seconds to give some specific property information for ActiveRain. Because winning would be awesome but the ultimate goal of this video is to get the home sold! Thanks for taking to time to watch and comment.

Hi Mike,

Very creative. I think this is the best video posted for the contest so far.

I have one to submit as well so hopefully one of us can take that top prize.  It was so windy yesterday that my tripod became a casualty of making the video.  Luckily I was done recording but it did slow me up a little bit.

Absolutely adorable!  Do you mind me asking what software you use for production.  I voted at C21 for you also.

MICHELLE: Thank you so much for the kind words and multiple votes! I sincerely appreciate that. This video was all done with iMovie on my Mac. Some of the animations and titles were done in Keynote (Mac's version of PowerPoint) and the imported to iMovie. I used my little flip camera for a lot of the filming. I posted a whole list of the equipment and software I used here: http://appraiserrealtor.tumblr.com

Thanks again for taking the time to watch and comment!

RUDY: Thanks so much, man! Keep smiling and follow me back on Twitter please @RealtorLefebvre....Just think of the $$$ you could save if a guy from Boston wins! I'll happily take the train and help slash the airfare budget for the contest! :)

Mike, what a great video! Very entertaining. I gave you a thumb's up on your YouTube version too!

CANDIS: Thanks so much for commenting. And thanks for taking the time to go to an entirely different site and vote for me in another contest. It's very humbling when perfect strangers are willing to take time out of their day to help your cause, and for that I am very grateful. Have an awesome day!
Posted by Mike Lefebvre (Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty) over 10 years ago
Very nice!
Posted by Michael Thompson over 10 years ago
MICHAEL: Thanks buddy, although it's safe to say the competition is heating up with some of these late entries. :) You guys did a great job on yours as well! As the French say, "Bon Chance!" which means "Good Luck and I hope you come in 2nd!", I believe. 
Posted by Mike Lefebvre (Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty) over 10 years ago
Loved it!! What an awesome way to show a property!! I am off to vote at your other contest - good luck on both!!!

JO: Thanks so much Jo! That means a lot to me. The feedback here on ActiveRain has been phenomenal. Vote early, vote often. Although my SELLER gets the $21,000 first prize at the Century 21 contest, I'm sure I could wrestle out a nice price reduction if they win the $$$ because of my video, right? :) Thanks again
Posted by Mike Lefebvre (Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty) over 10 years ago

Ok that is just crazy that you can vote more than once - usually there is an ip track that stops you - ok book marked the page -  will be back again :)

Mike...seriously, you may have missed your calling.  You should be working in Hollywood!  Your video rocked!!!  Smart, funny....awesome timing on the music, great transitions, great scripting...I think you've got a winner on your hands.

Posted by Annie & Bob Pacieznik (REMAX) over 10 years ago

BOB: Thanks so much! You've obviously seen my production (or lack there of) this quarter when referencing my missed calling. I thought you and Annie had a pretty great video, too! With a name like "Lefebvre" I wish I thought of your concept! Thanks for the positive feedback, but like Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over 'til it's over." 

OK, so it's almost over. A few more hours.  

Posted by Mike Lefebvre (Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty) over 10 years ago
Wow Mike - you are great at this - glad I'm not a judge - so many awesome entries. I'm off to vote for you for C21 - definitely  a winner - hope the home sells too! :) @cyndeehaydon

Great camera work, Story line really keeps the viewers attention. Very entertaining.
Posted by Patrick Mahony (Real Estate) over 10 years ago

@cyndeehaydon: Thanks for the nice words. Yeah, me too! The ultimate goal here is to sell the damn home right? How's the market down there? My Mom lives north in Spring Hill. Follow me back on Twitter @RealtorLefebvre if you're not already. AND THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for taking time out of your hectic life to vote over on Century 21. That one has a $21,000 prize for my seller (can someone say "price reduction" for the agent?). I really appreciate your support.

 PATRICK: Thanks! That means a lot to me. This was my first real attempt at video and I had a blast. To know it was actually entertaining is a huge bonus!  

Posted by Mike Lefebvre (Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty) over 10 years ago
Mike:

This was really good.  I know that Century 21 is making a big push for you guys to do video on Youtube. 

Good luck and you really did do a very cool and entertaining job.

Great job of getting hard selling points across in an entertaining way!  Bravo!
Posted by Sara Bonert, Real Estate Internet Marketing (Zillow) over 10 years ago
JESSICA and SARA: In all seriousness (tweets aside), thanks to both of you for the kind words. Glad you found it entertaining. I know I had a blast making it and it's really gratifying to hear that comes across to the viewers as well.

I like the angle that you took with your video.  Very entertaining.  Great use of sound!

Mike, this was awesome.  I used to think I was creative, until I saw this.  Holy Smokes...what an excellent way to make a video interesting!!  Good job!

Mike...once again...you rock!  Have a fantastic time in NY and keep making videos!
Posted by Annie & Bob Pacieznik (REMAX) over 10 years ago
KAREN: Thanks, but please don't EVER doubt your creativity. Keep at it! Keep creating! Keep pushing! If I stopped after every person told me to "give it up" I would have never got to make this video and all the others still to come... (inspirational message over)

ELEANOR: Thank you! I love Cary, NC and want to follow some real estate people on Twitter from the area! Are you or any of your realtor contacts on Twitter? Please follow me @RealtorLefebvre if so.

ANNIE and BOB: In the interest of full disclosure, I was worried when I saw your video. The concept was really, really good! And you guys both come off very naturally on camera. Enjoy the Flip camera. You will love it!!!!
Posted by Mike Lefebvre (Hallmark Sotheby's International Realty) over 10 years ago
Mike, congratulations to the win on your video! This was so gooooood. You did a fantastic job! From a fellow MA gal!! (Born in Groton,MA and lived in Ayer & Millis as a child).
