Top Agent Profile Magazine Featuring Jeff Cameron
Jeff Cameron grew up around it, his family excelled at it, and inevitably he became part of it: The world of Real Estate. “While obtaining my degree in Finance, I found myself enjoying real estate electives,” says Jeff, a REALTOR® for HomeSmart who owned two homes at age 21. After graduating, Jeff was driven to get his license. “I sold a home the very first weekend I had my license,” he says. In his first year, Jeff sold 20 homes and has never looked back.
Fast forward 20 years, Jeff has a small team working for clients across the valley, with a focus on Scottsdale. He has personally sold over 1,200 homes worth more than $220 million. Along his journey he has worked at some of the top real estate companies in the valley including Realty Executive, Keller Williams, and currently at HomeSmart.
The Cameron Team consists of Tiffany, Jessica, and Nikki who run the day-to-day office operations including marketing. Jeff and Lisa work together with buyers, but primarily dedicate their time to sellers. Rounding out the team is Hope, their Buyer’s Agent who follows up on every lead, providing feedback to the team.
When asked what makes The Cameron Team unique, his reply was: “First we have our Premiere Home Launch Program, next we market with today’s technologies of Home Video, Social Media and Blogging, and finally I believe my negotiating skills are unmatched.” The Cameron Team backs up their position with strong statistics. Jeff’s sellers average 27 days on the market with many selling at or over list price. The competition averages 85 days on the market.
The Premiere Home Launch Program is one-of-a-kind. They list a home on Monday, with no showings until Saturday and market the home through Social Media and Syndication throughout the week. “With Home Launch, we never under sell a home. Have you ever seen a home sell in a day? Do you think it sold for the full market value? “No” is probably the answer. Our Home Launch provides buyers the opportunity to write an offer before the home is sold.”
Using YouTube and other Social Media, The Cameron Team creates long term marketing. Once they are Blogged or Posted they never go away. Jeff’s monthly real estate market reports are seen across the country. “I have buyers contacting me from places like Chicago, because they found my video reports on line and I am now their REALTOR®.”
“While at Keller Williams I taught many classes for REALTORS® and became a mentor. Part of my success in negotiating is using these mentor-ship skills to help buyer’s agents bring our sellers the highest price.” Jeff adds, “I want to attract more than one offer for my listing.
This creates bidding wars which make my listings sell at their highest price.” The Cameron Team has ample reviews by their clients on Zillow; all Positive. “If you are looking for someone that KNOWS the market, Jeff is the REALTOR® for you “professes a long-time client on Zillow.com. “(They are) seasoned professionals with the knowledge and integrity that is needed in today’s Real Estate market.”
The Cameron Team has worked hard to create a stronger presence in their back yard, McDowell Mountain Ranch. Jeff is very involved with sponsoring the local schools and youth sports teams. “In 2012, we decided to donate a computer for every home we sold in the McDowell Mountain Ranch area. We donated funds to Desert Canyon Elementary School for the purchase of 7 computers. Our goal in 2013, is to donate 30 computers”
At the beginning of 2013, they launched a neighbourhood blog at LiveInMcDowellMountainRanch.com. It contains relevant information on the community, such as homes for sale, current events, video home tours, and market reports. Those blogs are then posted to Social Media and Syndicated. “The Old Fashioned Static web site is not as effective today.”
Jeff utilizes Social Media by “Friending” Top Agents across the country that he met through professional coaching in the Tom Ferry group. “It is great to mastermind with some of the best REALTORS® across the country.”
In the free time created by having an effective Team, Jeff spends time with his family: his wife Lisa and their four children ranging from 8-24 years old. Jeff’s other passions are working out at the DC Ranch Village Gym and mountain biking. “My backyard is the McDowell Mountains, it’s My Disneyland.”
Sounds like The Cameron Team will be around for a long time!
