Reviews Matter

Consumers read reviews prior to selecting a service provider. The more ‘stars’ or positive reviews a REALTOR® has, the more confident the consumer is with their selection. The best way to get reviews is to ask, but what sites do you utilize? Here are a few sites we suggest:

Google is the #1 search engine in the United States. For your business to be found on Google and to be able to accept reviews, you need to set up a verified Google Plus business profile.

Yelp connects with Apple’s iOS maps and business directory. It is also the #1 site dedicated to customer reviews. Complete your Yelp profile and ask for reviews from active Yelp users.

Facebook is a place for agents to engage with prospective customers. It remains the largest social networking site with over a billion members worldwide. Asking satisfied customers to post a review on your Facebook page can be a powerful marketing tool.

Zillow has over 70 million visitors each month interested in real estate. Many still need to select a REALTOR®. Complete your Zillow profile and follow Zillow’s simple process to request reviews.

Trulia provides a one-stop solution for local residential real estate information and provides a platform for agents to build their online presence. A Trulia agent profile is needed prior to requesting customer reviews.

LinkedIn is the largest professional platform in the United States. Your customers have most likely read your profile. Asking for recommendations on LinkedIn is a great addition to your online resume.
