What Does Godzilla and ZMOT (Google Term) Have in Common?
“ZMOT” in question isn’t some 3-D cinematic monster that boils up from the sea
to trample downtown Tokyo (though ZMOT and Godzilla do have a few similarities).
“ZMOT” is what Google has decided is now happening to the real estate market
—our own Centennial and Greenwood Villagereal estate market definitely included!

traditional modes of shopping and purchasing become eclipsed by the digital
universe: web sites, search engines, social channels, online video, etc. etc.

out of 10 homebuyers today rely on the web as a primary research source (forget
about asking around at the PTA meeting)... 2. 52%
turn to the Internet first (instead of the back page of Section 2 of the
local newspaper)… 3. One-fifth
of real estate-related searches take place on mobile devices (that doesn’t
mean driving around the neighborhood, either)… ZMOT is here, all
right, and those of us whose profession is to spend full time in the Centennial and Greenwood Villagereal estate
market are not at all surprised. It’s unlike Raymond Burr’s famed opening line

What has now “happened here” is
that homebuyers are performing an average 11 online searches before settling

smartphone and web search engine to figure out your next foray into Centennial and Greenwood Village real estate market?
Fortunately, not at all. Of those 9 out of 10 who use the Internet, fully 89%
also turn to someone like me — your Centennial and Greenwood Village real estate
agent — to help buy or sell.

"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
