A complete marketing plan involves much more than a sign in the front yard.   Those last century real estate marketing expectations of sticking a sign in the ground, posting a few photos on the Multiple Listing Service, and holding an open house or two, do not suffice in the digital marketing age.  A savvy agent will still make those old school marketing moves for her clients. Also, her marketing repertoire must include a social media blitz, and videos featuring the best assets of a seller's property.

This grand dame (I don't want to appear biased but I always think of homes in the feminine gender) celebrated her 100th birthday in 2014 with most of her original architectural design still in tact. The kitchen and bathrooms have undergone some updates and a terrace was enclosed during the past 100 years, but the rest of the home received minimal changes to the original plan other than some cosmetic improvements.
