Sonia Montgomery, a newly-designated REALTOR® at HomeSmart in Desert View, AZ, has launched a comprehensive, community-focused website to feature local businesses.
DESERT VIEW, AZ, Nov. 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - Desert View REALTOR® Sonia Montgomery is providing local business owners with an innovative new platform for promoting their products and services to local residents - at no cost to them!
Relocating to Phoenix after her late husband's passing, Montgomery fell in love with Desert View's close-knit community. After hosting several open houses with her mother in-law, an active real estate agent, Montgomery recognized an opportunity to help local seniors with their relocation needs.
Finding clients in the competitive Desert View real estate market, however, proved a significant challenge. As Sonia explains:
"Since moving to Desert View, I realized that I could really serve the seniors community here with my knowledge, but I had no work associates, no friends and my only family member was my competition!"
When she discovered Parkbench.com, Montgomery recognized a unique opportunity to enrich the Desert View community while connecting with the people and business owners.
Parkbench, a network sponsored by over 1000 real estate agents, is a digital platform that hosts comprehensive neighborhood websites across the US and Canada. Users can access, share and contribute daily comprehensive local news, articles, reviews and information about local businesses, organizations and events.
Since launching in September, 2017, Montgomery's Desert View community page on Parkbench has featured over 30 personal interviews with local business owners, providing residents with unique insights into the businesses serving them. Local business owners are thrilled by the additional free online exposure they receive as a result.
Says Parkbench CEO, Grant Findlay Shirras, "Parkbench sponsors are community advocates or 'digital mayors', real estate agents selected for their knowledge of the community and dedication. Sonia's enthusiasm for her community has been inspiring to watch', and we're proud to support her."
