NewsWorthy Homes recently interviewed Debra Johnston to learn more about her successful luxury real estate career. The following are excerpts from that interview.

Q- What advice would you give a new realtor wanting to specialize in the luxury sector?

Debra Johnston: First of all, the luxury market invites you in and not the other way around. I rarely come across new realtors that are able to dive into the luxury market without first putting the work in to create their brand identity around luxury. It takes studying the luxury market, not just homes but also trends, the lifestyle, and the patterns to understand how to best market yourself to luxury home buyers and sellers. Then it requires taking that knowledge and uncovering what the discerning luxury clientele really wants out of an agent to represent them in buying or selling a home.

Q-What do you think it takes to be a leader in luxury real estate?

Debra Johnston: To be a leader you need to be an innovator, an influencer, and to think outside the box. Your entire brand as a luxury realtor requires a campaign that is cohesive, organized, and touches all aspects of communication and ways to connect; from your brand’s Google rank and online presence – to social media outlets like Instagram and LinkedIn – to YouTube, and beyond. Attention to detail and creativity plays a big role in developing this unified strategy that differentiates you from other luxury agents. Once you have decided on your approach to stand out from your competition, it is important to align yourself with luxury partners that give you access to exclusive services. Luxury sellers, for example, want to work with someone that can provide them with access to opportunities for innovative marketing solutions that are unique. It’s not only about positioning yourself as a luxury brand and promoting it, it is equally important to showcase exclusive services to establish yourself has a leader in luxury real estate.
