At the start of 2012, my wife Candace and I decided to start our own Real Estate web site, www.TheHarelikTeam.com, the site that you’re on now. Not just any web site but one that would stand out from the rest. We spent weeks finding just the right images and format. At that point I knew that I was about to spend hours upon hours and weeks upon weeks finding the perfect content and developing the site
Having been in the computer business for over 40 years, I knew that having a beautiful web site without SEO (Search Engine Optimization) would end up being just a pretty picture and an expensive one at that.
Search Engine Optimization is an essential element for any web site to be found. Without SEO, any web site will be totally unknown except for the few people that you tell about it. Yep, a pretty web site feeds your ego and if that satisfies you, you don’t need to invest in SEO.
Not knowing where to turn to find an affordable solution and having the confidence that it would be done right, I searched and searched and searched the internet… thank you Google. What I found was most SEO solutions were not local. I realize that they don’t have to be local to do a good job but I wanted to talk face to face with whoever I chose. Some of the local firms were way out of my price range. Others didn’t even answer their phone. I was getting pretty frustrated.
My wife suggested that I ask one of her associates in Ft Lauderdale (who is a very successful realtor) if he knew of anyone. He threw out the name Chris Corey to me. He had talked with Chris but wasn’t actively pursuing an SEO Solution at that time.
I call Chris. WOW! I finally found what I was looking for. Chris Corey and his brother Brian, who live in Miami, were a team and a half. Chris is the one that sees that everyone is happy and Brian is the technical guru. There both excellent. Corey Consulting was my solution.
Our specialty was going to be Over 55 – Active Adult Communities. They researched which words got the most traffic and we needed to target. They know how Google works and how to work within the Google guidelines to start my upward journey in the search engines.
I’m about 4 months into my web site for the most part, it’s done. However the SEO effort marches onward and upward. Chris and Brian suggested that I include a Blog on my site and explained just how powerful it would be and explained what a Blog is. I started writing Blogs and they wrote several press releases on my behalf. They suggested I include certain content and format for my site to aid in the effort.
Chris and Brian come to visit me once a month. That’s South Miami to Lake Worth. Quite a trek but they insist on doing it. I couldn’t ask for a better team to take our web site to the top of most search engines.
They identified and targeted about 40 different key words in the Over 55 – Active Adult Communities. Currently, we are on page one or two for most of those key words, and still climbing.
If you find yourself in a similar situation, call Corey Consulting and talk with Chris, he’ll be happy to talk with you. You have absolutely nothing to lose. Chris can be reached at 305-710-3322. Try it, you’ll like it.
