I get many emails like this every week, and most of the links that are shared are simply a waste of my time. Expecting the worst, I followed the link and was in for a pleasant surprise — I was glued to the video from the start.

    This was highly entertaining, I loved it. The dry humor the background music, everything. If I was in Vancouver and needed a house, I’d give these guys a call for sure. Great marketing.

    Not only is it entertaining and probably effective, this type of video is relatively cheap to produce and promote. I’m working on one for my IT business that has got me learning a lot. Scheduled for release on 11/6.
