SOLUTION

Casa Real Estate has been in the business of selling homes for decades, but they are not getting a lot of people interested in their investing and financial workshops and courses. They want to rebrand and included there financial literacy aspect to their brand.  

The solution started with in-depth brand research and from that, crafting a brand strategy that positioned Casa Real Estate as a friendly, educational stop for homebuyers. Using the brand strategy, I developed a flexible and distinctive brand identity system. Casa Real Estate will focus on social media post to educate on the housing markets and sell online and print work books. Casa Real Estate needed a logo, business card, brand style guide, and a marketing materials that showed the true essence of the business.

BRAND STRATEGY 

Casa Real Estate caters to customers who want to buy homes and who want to educate themselves on the housing marketing. Casa Real Estate built a company culture that empowers and trains a diverse group of clients. To understand the needs of these customers, we created unique user profiles to represent the attendees' range. I also sent out a questionnaire that helped paint a clear picture of their demographics, psychographics, needs, and wants.
