Chant Agents Petraitis, Steelman, and Baron Make A Giant Leap Forward


Honesdale, PA— High-tech presentations, effective open houses, and social media contact generation were just a few of the many dynamic topics discussed and taught at a recent ‘Master Your Marketing’ Gateway seminar in Boston, MA attended by Connie Petraitis, Colleen Steelman, and Kathy Baron of Davis R. Chant Realtors Honesdale Office.

The seminar was a comprehensive real estate business-building seminar that teaches agents proven systems to effectively and efficiently market their client listings in today’s market. How to use Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube and other Social Networking sites for contact generation and personal marketing were featured ‘highlights’ of the seminar as well. Petraitis, Steelman, and Baron learned how to turn social media and personal marketing into productive tools to better serve their clients real estate needs.

When Petraitis, Steelman and Baron were asked collectively why they decided that this was the seminar for them, they said, “This seminar seemed like it would help us discover how to make a giant leap forward, work smarter, and provide even better service to our clients!

“Social media and personal branding is powerful,” said John Schmitt, Vice President of the company and Manager of the Chant Honesdale Office.  “The Chant Company has always been at the forefront with the best and most proven marketing programs and technology tools as they come out to help our agents provide outstanding service to their clients. We are always offering comprehensive, creative seminars and workshops in-house, and we support any other seminar, lecture, or workshops our agents are involved in. I am proud and have no doubt that Connie, Colleen, and Kathy will go far beyond what they’ve done personally in their careers so far because of their “get up and go” attitude.”

Davis Chant, Founder and Chairman of the Board commented that, “Technology is moving at lightning speed, and what is happening out there in the “new” world of marketing real estate is not a fad, not something you can put off and definitely not something you can decide is “not for you” as a Realtor. I am personally excited to see our agents taking not only a professional active role but also a personal one as well in learning the new technology out there.  For forty-six years our best asset has been our Realtors, they’ve seen a lot of ups and downs in the market and met every challenge given them to better their service, marketing tools, and personal lives. The excitement I have knowing that Chant Realtors is still leading in having the most motivated, innovated, and experienced people working for it is great.  It’s an amazing and wonderful world out there, the opportunities are endless for a Realtor to have a productive and prosperous career in real estate.”

Individual Praises: Connie Petraitis— Gateway… the perfect name for this seminar. I didn’t know I could learn so much in such a short time.  I’ve been in real estate for 25 years and still understand the need to learn and grow as a Realtor.  It’s my career, my life, and it’s the gateway to having a prosperous and balanced future.  I love what I do. And I love the excitement of learning all the new tools and things that can help me reach my goals. Helping families find the right Wayne County home is where my heart is as a Realtor. I’ve already started some of the new marketing methods and I look forward to continuing to build my referral network because of them.

Colleen Steelman—The Best!  I’ve never looked at myself as a salesperson, so this seminar fit perfectly with my personal core values and philosophy… that as a person, and Realtor I have to stay on top of new marketing strategies and personal growth opportunities to become the best that I can be in all the areas of my life.  I love being a Realtor! And, I want to be one of the best this area has ever seen. My clients experience in working with me is everything to me.  It’s up to me to provide outstanding service to them, and make their experience the best they’ve ever had.  One of my future goals is becoming an Associate Broker and what I do now will absolutely help me reach it.

Kathy Baron—A seminar in Boston? What a wonderful city in the summer. I checked the schedule and the Redsox were at home playing at Fenway and the concept of the seminar sounded intriguing. Bad news … the Redsox lost… Great news… I won big time!
