BOWES 2019 Year in Review | Bowes Real Estate

    BOWES Real Estate - A "Shop Local" Story!



Dear Chamber Members:

Three years ago, BOWES Real Estate began experiencing significant new competition from real estate firms outside of Arlington.  It was obvious that we needed to change our business model.

Following the lead of the Arlington Chamber we incorporated new strategies: In all our promotional advertising we adopted “ARLINGTON’S HOMETOWN EXPERTS" and encouraged folks to "SHOP LOCAL".  A good fit as we entered our 75th business year in Arlington. Our team joined more local organizations and committees, attended and sponsored more events.

Our Arlington market share has grown each year since with the biggest improvement occurring in 2019. We will continue to enhance this initiative and expect even better results in 2020. Always shopping locally also helped us develop new business relationships and we helped improve the success of every Arlington business with whom we interact. It’s a win-win.

If we would all try to shop locally and could convince our customers to do the same, we would all enjoy greater success.

Please view our 2019 year-in-review video. It would be great to hear your story and ideas for making Arlington the best place to be in business.
