Real Estate Agents are competing in a difficult market, with prices down and less overall transactions taking place. More than ever, they need to work harder to attract buyer and seller leads and to promote themselves in their farming area and on social media so that consumers notice them.

Agents need a way for consumers to find them when and where they research property.

1. On social media and friend networks: “do you know any good real estate agents in Bondi?”

Consumers are using social media and their friend networks to get recommendations of agents in their area. Where is your profile showcased?

Facebook
Friend networks – word of mouth!

2. Via google searching: “real estate agent bondi”

Consumers will use search engines to search for property professionals or even to search for your name. Where will YOU rank in their search?

Your Name, Your Profile, Your Brand

RP Connect is a personalised webpage that allows you to engage with buyers and sellers online, connecting popular social media networks into one convenient, easy to use application.

Getting Noticed with rp.connect

Consumers do their initial research online, and when choosing an agent to list their house, often the choice becomes ‘personal’ – do they think they can trust this person, and first impressions count.

The agent needs more than just a paragraph blurb about them on their agency website. The agents own branding and profile is sometimes just as important (if not more so) than their agency brand.

Showcase your Current Listings and Recent Sales
Showcase your Current Listings and Recent Sales

When a buyer or seller finds an agent, the agent needs to be able to showcase herself, her brand, her recent sales and current listings, her testimonials and featured listings. The agent needs to be able to make a good first impression so the consumers’ initial questions are answered – and then they need an easy way to get in touch with the agent.
