Boost Your Brand with Reviews

As a real estate agent, you understand that your job isn’t over when your client closes on their dream home. For the real estate industry, reviews are a great way to separate yourself from the pack; and with 93% of consumers saying online reviews influence their purchasing decisions* – reviews should be another part of your business strategy.

Complete Profiles

Other than already having a Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram account, you need to have a full and complete profile with popular real estate sites like: Zillow, Yelp, and Realtor.com.

Send an Email

Send a follow-up email two or three days after the closing and include a hyperlink of the places where they can easily leave a review.

Display Comments

When you do receive reviews, find a creative way to highlight them on your website. Clients will be more inclined to write feedback if they see your appreciation towards those who have already submitted.
