Real estate is a referral business!
Most agents, and especially top agents, still get the majority of their real estate business from client referrals. There is lots of material online and from coaches on how to perfect your word-of-mouth marketing, including client appreciation events and lots of pies.
But what about software? There are a few extra pieces of technology that are focused on helping agents stay connected in a meaningful way with their happy customers.
Each does it in a slightly different way, whether it’s providing actionable home market reports, sending beautifully designed and branded print materials, or a list of “what’s sold” in the neighborhood.
Ultimately, these are extras. None will take a non-existent referral marketing strategy and turn it into gold. You have to work your database.
But they can be a nice extra touch depending on your model, to provide value consistent with your brand.
