DIGS serves as a hyper-local hub for “all things real estate” and targets home enthusiasts who are actively in the market to buy, sell, finance, build, remodel, design, etc. DIGS is a trusted and indispensable resource for local home consumers who use DIGS to source agents, lenders, architects, designers, and to find their next home.

DIGS is all about audience engagement and customer ROI. For us, it’s always been more about solving our customers “how do I increase sales?” problem than “check out our cool magazine!”

We focus on relevance – it’s the most important pillar we leverage and how we differentiate in the over-crowded media space. DIGS is not a “real estate section” located in the back of a monthly lifestyle magazine or weekly community newspaper.

Our focus in singular in purpose – to be the authoritative voice of local real estate in the markets we serve. We connect those with a love of luxury real estate. It’s ultimately the connection of our audience with our marketing partners where we add value.

“One of my favorite questions in which I always answer back with a question…

‘If you don’t have any listings, are you out of business?’

The reply is often ‘No, of course not’

‘Well then, of course, you need to stay visible and invest in marketing!’

The fact is, this is the best kind of marketing – the opportunity to communicate to the local real estate market WHY they should do business with you and WHAT you have to offer and HOW you differentiate from your 5000 agent competitors.”
