Broker Oleg Bortman says yes, and his sales are proof that print ads aren’t just viable, they’re extremely effective. Thanks to a heavy focus on print advertising and postcards, Oleg’s team sold 150 homes last year. On today’s show, Oleg breaks down the print-advertising process and explains what it takes to make it work.

Born in Ukraine, Oleg moved to the United States in 1979 as his family sought the American Dream.
Oleg studied biology at York College and upon graduation began working in Pharmaceutical sales, and was a Regional Sales Director for a fortune 100 Pharmaceutical Company for several years.
However, deep down, Oleg knew his true passion was and is real estate. He bought his first investment property in 1999 and quickly became captivated with the entire real estate market. He expanded his portfolio from New Jersey to Nevada and then onto Arizona, quickly seeing his return on investments.
When Oleg moved out West, he realized he didn’t just want to be an investor, he wanted to give other people the same opportunity he has had. He loves working not only with buyers, but sellers and investors as well. Oleg has been in real estate for over ten years as it continues to be his dream career.
