RISMEDIA, September 3, 2007–One sign that Lucas Lechuga’s techniques for helping out-of-state buyers are working is that some of his clients have bought properties from him without ever seeing the place in person. Read how his marketing approach and self-taught videography skills helped him stand out among Realtor on the Rise candidates.Lucas Lechuga

In real estate since: 2005 After graduation: Prior to getting involved in real estate, Lechuga worked as an on-floor options trader at the Chicago Board of Options Exchange. Finding your niche: Lechuga found his specialty by working with out-of-state investors; he was able to clearly convey why they should or should not buy a certain property.
Lucas Lechuga not only works with investors, condominium foreclosures, pre-foreclosures, short sales and pre-construction, but also local buyers. What’s more, by using video in his marketing practices, Lechuga has been able to close transactions where the buyer has not physically seen the property. His expertise in videography is self-taught. Lechuga produces, narrates and edits all his property videos.
