Hello! My wife, Lauren, and I recently got back from the Safari Club International Convention in Nashville, and I thought this incredible experience would be a timely topic for this week’s Monday Morning Mojo!
Last year I became the Alaska representative for the Sports Afield Trophy Properties program. Sports Afield is the world’s oldest continuously published hunting magazine, with the first issue going out in 1888! (Scroll down to the bottom of this email to find out how you can get a free subscription!) Their Trophy Property program features brokers in specific territories and equips them with special opportunities to effectively promote “trophy properties” – that is, properties with hunting/fishing potential, recreational properties, lakefront properties, large parcels and those backing to public land, farms, lodges, and commercial properties with one or more of the aforementioned features. In addition to my normal dynamic marketing services, I am able to feature these properties on the Sports Afield website, email marketing, social media, property publications, and at events like the Safari Club International Convention. I also have greater exposure to off-market opportunities for potential buyers.
As a lifelong Alaskan, hunter, and fisherman, it was incredible to have the opportunity to attend the Safari Club International event (the various exhibits and booths really are mind blowing!), meet hunters and fishermen from all over the world, and connect with a surprising number of local Alaskans and guides who also traveled down for the event!
The convention is an awesome resource for providing additional exposure for my sellers’ properties. Not only was I able to speak with a large number of people specifically about my “trophy property” listings, I was able to meet multiple people looking to buy and sell all types of property in Alaska (i.e., guides looking for a home on the road system, hunters seeking a remote cabin for outdoor opportunities, etc). It was definitely an enjoyable, productive time all around!
Not only that, but it was wonderful to meet the great team at Sports Afield. Truly incredible people!
As a Sports Afield Trophy Properties representative, I’m able to offer free magazine subscriptions by word of mouth in emails like this. If you’d like a free subscription to this awesome publication, please just respond back with your name and mailing address!
And as always, if you’re considering buying or selling property in Alaska, please let me know how I can be of service!
