Network Promotion

In our experience, one of the best places to start marketing your home is within our own Macdonald Realty family of agents. Why? Because they know interested buyers. And, because they understand the Macdonald Realty approach – that we are about building long-lasting relationships with our clients, not simply the quick sale – that doesn’t mean we can’t or won’t get the job done swiftly. Just that we value you and your business and won’t ever rush the job to make a sale.

Office Meeting

These meetings are conducted on a regular basis and are a great place to promote new listings to fellow Macdonald Realty sales professionals.


Our tours are a great way to promote listings to agents from all companies.

Company Email Announcement

Macdonald Realty sends regular email announcements to all the associates in our offices featuring new listings. This is the first opportunity for our agents to get the word out.

Professional Marketing

We believe print materials such as creative advertising, property postcards, brochures and window displays, generate the best market exposure for your home. That’s why we have an in-house creative team working with our agents to capture all the character and features of your property — to ensure your home looks its very best in the highest quality, full-colour collateral. In our experience, professional materials leave a lasting impression.

As many buyers begin their property search online from the comfort of home, as a Macdonald Realty client you’re more than covered there too. We list our properties on all the big websites, including,, and, as well as thousands of other local real estate sites. We also market your home on international websites such as, so your property gets maximum exposure.

Professional Photography

A key to showing your home in the best light is professional photography. With 90% of buyers first viewing the home on the Internet, we need to make sure those first impressions make an impact so they decide to come view the property in person. Once they’re there, we want them to walk away with beautiful materials marketing your home. 

Property Brochures

To help potential purchasers remember your house, a professional quality “Feature Sheet” or brochure outlining the major selling points of your house is prepared and given to them. Since most purchasers see several houses before making the decision to buy, these full-colour, glossy highlight sheets help to separate your special home from all the rest.

Luxury Marketing

Experience unparalleled exposure through our Luxury Marketing Program, a versatile tool that maximizes local and global visibility for qualifying homes. To this we add specialized luxury signage and unique relationships with luxury web partners to guarantee that your home receives as many views as possible.

BC's Luxury Leaders

Luxury properties and their unique features deserve special consideration, particularly with more affluent consumers. For qualifying homes, luxury marketing offers the best way to reach that consumer base — whether that buyer is in British Columbia, Canada, or across the globe. Our Luxury Marketing Program includes specialized signage and an international network of partners. There’s a reason why, year after year, Macdonald Realty leads the way in luxury sales in markets across BC.
