WHY USE THE VISITORS CENTER AS A STARTING POINT?
There are a number of reasons why the Visitors Center should be your first stop when you are working with prospective home buyers that are new to High Point and considering moving here.
First, one of its 21 galleries provides an introduction to the greater High Point area with beautiful photography and copy. It is the perfect tool to help you invite people to move here by thoughtfully telling the story of why High Point is a Great Place to Live. Here you can quickly present our community, history, activities, attractions and schools.
You can also introduce them to the 100 furniture stores and outlets in the area featured within the Home Furnishings Gallery. The kiosks go one step further to identify the specific stores which carry the style and kind of furniture that they want and need. The Interior Design Services Gallery introduces a whole new buying experience in the “Home Furnishings Capital of the World™!”, putting furniture shoppers in contact with Interior Designers to access the showrooms open only to the trade.
The Visitors Center is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and free of charge to you and to your clients.
WHY A real Estate Family Certification PROGRAM?
When our out-of-town visitors tell us they are moving here or are thinking about moving here, we provide a Relocation Packet. Often, they ask us, “who is a good realtor?” In the past, all that we could do is provide a list of all of the REALTORS in our area. Since the implementation of the Certification Program and website highlighting why High Point is a great place to live, we can now provide visitors with resources, including a brochure, featuring a listing of REALTORS® and Allied Professionals, who have successfully completed Visit High Point’s Real Estate Family Certification Program.
Here is how it works, if you are a member of the High Point Regional Association of REALTORS, spend a few hours with us learning how to use the Visitors Center as a tool when meeting with clients, and in the process you will learn about High Point and all that we have to offer. We’ll bring in city and agency leaders and provide a mini educational session on a topic that brings value to your role as a Realtor, all while making the experience fun and interesting.
That’s it! We’ll help you present High Point in the best light, and in exchange for attending our training session, we’ll add your name to our list of REALTORS and Allied Professionals, all for the cost of $50 per individual members and $75 for nonmembers.
The next Real Estate Family Certification Class will be held Tuesday, October 31, 2023 at Congdon Yards in the Millis Boardroom. Click the button below to register and pay.
