This podcast introduces Vogue, their fixed-cost build strategy, what buyers should look for when venturing into the packaged house and land space, and Girgis' approach to all things property.
For those of our mortgage brokers looking at what Vogue seek in mortgage broker 'partners', skip to the 20m 19s mark.
We introduce Girgis Sirgyous, his background, and his own view on real-estate investment.
We learn a little more about Vogue Homes and their points of differentiation. Vogue offers fixed-priced builds with no hidden fees. We talk about the general (and flawed) industry pricing structure - "What is the total cost of ownership?" Girgis talks about comparing designs and inclusions in order to return a realistic comparison price.
: We talk about Girgis' Blog
We introduce Girgis' blog, his motivation for creating it, and what knowledge he hopes to impart by way of its existence. In short, he wanted buyers to make informed decision.
: You're in the Education Business!
The approach Girgis has towards his own blog is one that should serve as an example for our own clients. Have a clear, engaging, and education-focused content creation strategy.
: What does Girgis look for in Mortgage Brokers?
Girgis talks about what he looks for in a mortgage broker. Vogue has a large network of brokers... but he likes finance brokers to have a clear and sound understanding of construction loans, registered land, contracts, and the construction process. He also likes brokers to understand Vogue's product and culture.
: Builder and Real-Estate Relationships
We introduce a few tips for creating relationships with real-estate groups and builders. Relationships and called 'bridges' for a reason - they need to be built. Invest time into understanding clients before talking to them.
: Where can you find Vogue Homes?
Girgis talks about Vogue's display locations, and how you may make contact. Vogue has the standard build on display but also has some display homes with additional inclusions.
