How Hot Property Came to Be
HOT PROPERTY came to fruition ten years ago while Chaz was the mega-agent with another real estate franchise. HOT PROPERTY Residential Brokerage was established to be the primer outlet for selling Chicago''''s most prized homes. Chaz recruited and mentored a handpicked force of the best agents in Chicago. HOT PROPERTY further honed its reputation that it was a people-driven business philosophy that facilitated a culture of working closely with clients to buy and sell the finest homes all the while truly surpassing their client''''s expectations
Unique Marketing a Key to SuccessI''''ve heard the buzz around various water coolers; because of his unorthodox ad campaign, some people in the business believe that Walters is a vain egotist. Well, I hate to kill your buzz, folks, but he is just the opposite – humble, polite, self-effacing. He is also keenly observant; more than his casual, down-to earth demeanor lets on. He discovered at a fairly young age that exposure (in any business) works, and that it takes money to make money, also, that marching to a different drummer gets you noticed
"If you''''re with a group of five thousand people walking north on a sidewalk, how are they going to distinguish you? The only way is if you walk in the opposite direction," says Walters. "When I started working in Chicago, I thought ‘how can I possibly compete with five thousand agents?'''' You have to do something pretty outlandish to get somebody''''s attention. So I came up with the billboard campaign. I talked to everybody, even my old manager at Coldwell Banker, he''''s the first one I told all about it, and he said I was nuts. I was going to be the laughing stock. But in the beginning, when you have nothing to lose and everything to gain, that''''s when you take those kinds of chances."
