Homes by Owner


Great House Marketing was developed by Pat Hune, broker and owner of 1st Southwest Realty.  Pat has many years experience working in sales and marketing in the electronics industry including 17 years at Intel.  In 2001 Pat became a licensed realtor specializing in single and multi-family housing. As a result of Pat's background in marketing she was a million dollar producer her first year and opened her own brokerage in 2007.  During her real estate career Pat has spoken with many owners trying to sell their houses on their own. Most of the sellers became frustrated by the amount of time, energy and money it took to find a good, qualified buyer.  The main reason was the owners did not know how to market their home effectively.  A majority of the sellers eventually listed their houses with a realtor. This created an additional frustration as even the process of finding a realtor with strong marketing skills was difficult.  Pat wanted to make it easy for owners to sell their houses themselves by offering an extensive marketing service and have a realtor with strong marketing skills available if they decided to list their home with a realtor.


In early 2009 Pat met with several mortgage professionals.  All of the lenders were seasoned mortgage professionals, had worked in the mortgage industry for many years and had a combined experience level of more than 50 years. All of these lenders are dedicated to making it easy for buyers to navigate the often confusing process of buying a home by providing highly trained mortgage experts to help them.


Pat's goal is to provide owners with resources to help them sell their houses on their own or with a realtor.  The lender's goal is to introduce to and guide buyers through the mortgage process to help them easily buy their next home. These goals for both sellers and buyers fit perfectly into a for a for sale by owner company.  And so Great House Marketing was born.
