GUILFORD COUNTY, N.C. -- More Guilford County real estate agents are finding that pushing the “Say Yes” program could mean a boost in home sales.
This past spring, Say Yes Guilford partnered with area real estate agents to create Say Yes sign riders.
Since then, more real estate agents have been trying to use them as a selling tool.
Coldwell Banker is one of the most recent groups to partner with Say Yes.
The company has redesigned a portion of the yard signs to read, “This is a Say Yes home,” as a way to initiate a conversation about the school system’s opportunities with buyers.
“That it will prompt people to ask questions and learn more about this program and everyone in the neighborhood can learn about it and be an advocate for the program,” Coldwell Banker real estate agent, Moo Moo Councill said.
To better prepare real estate agents to answer questions from clients, Say Yes met with Coldwell Banker real estate agents to explain what the program does and how it benefits Guilford County families.
“I'm so excited. I think this is the best thing for Guilford County,” Coldwell Banker real estate agent, Stacy Parent said.
Parent says education was the deciding factor for a family looking to move to the area for a new job.
“They actually chose Guilford County as where they want to take the position because of the Say Yes program. They have three children, they thought it was a marvelous program,” Parent said.
“A lot of Say Yes Realtors are now starting to put the Say Yes information into the description of the homes,” Say Yes spokesperson, Donnie Turlington said.
Coldwell Banker will distribute a few hundred sign riders at its current listings.
Real estate agents say their main goal is to make sure buyers of all income levels realize their family can benefit from the program.
