My first video! Construction progress of the Dale House

Dale-House-Natalie-Martinez

The Dale House is about to hit the market and I finally got over my stage fright and decided to make a video. When I worked in real estate marketing last year I made videos like this for our clients and brokerage, but I was never the star of the show. I was the woman behind the camera or crafting the story.

This house is almost finished, so it’s the perfect time to show you how it’s shaping up. As a comparison, this is a photo of what it looked like two weeks ago before it was painted.

The original house was taken down to the studs, with only the exterior walls remaining.  You can see from this picture here that the brick from the home was painted a yellow color. Instead of painting over it again, the builder decided to repurpose and sandblast it to bring the brick back to it’s original color.  You’ll be able to see that in the video.

This home is 5BR/4BA in the Peachtree Park neighborhood in Buckhead. The location is amazing. Before this project, I didn’t even know where Peachtree Park was. This part of Buckhead is an absolute gem.  It’s a quiet residential neighborhood tucked a few blocks away from Piedmont Rd. The heart of Buckhead is less than five minutes away, yet you feel far away from the city because the property is situated on a deep, wooded lot and high on a hill.  You catch glimpses of trees from every window. If you were to venture to the back of the property, it’s a deep, uncleared lot. It feels like you’re far from Atlanta in the woods somewhere. (I took video coverage of that, but decided to edit it out because I thought maybe it was just me who would appreciate that!)

The listing price hasn’t been determined yet but it will probably land somewhere around $1,250,000.

Enjoy my first video! If you have any questions, leave them in the comments section and I’ll address them here or include additional information in my next video next week.

    For a first video, I give it two thumbs up for sure. And…with practice you’ll have this thing down pat – it’s really great how naturally you come off. I shared it on my FB. :)
