RE/MAX Elite Made the Real Trends 500 List!

RE/MAX Agents Are More Productive in Annual REAL Trends 500 Survey

RE/MAX had more brokerages qualify for the REAL Trends 500 than any other brand. Congratulations to the 550 Broker/Owners, Managers, and Sales Associates featured in this year’s survey!
“RE/MAX and members of the RE/MAX network continue to surpass competitors in annual industry surveys and studies,” said Dave Liniger, CEO, Chairman of the Board and Co-Founder of RE/MAX, LLC. “The 2017 REAL Trends 500 survey confirms that our agents, on average, assist more buyers and sellers with some of the most important transactions of their lifetimes. On behalf of everyone at RE/MAX, I congratulate all of our brokerages that were included in this prestigious survey.”

The REAL Trends 500, now in its 30th year, ranks the performance of the top residential real estate brokerage firms in the country. Firms are ranked by both transaction sides and sales volume for the previous year. For the 2017 REAL Trends Survey, firms needed to close a minimum of 500 transaction sides in 2016 to qualify.

Top 7 Tips N Tricks for your Zillow Profile!

Any business owner will know that you have to be where your consumers are and Zillow (like it or not) is the #1 real estate website for consumers so you should have a presence on this website.  Here are a couple tips and tricks to get the most from your account.

The good news for you is that it doesn’t cost a penny to have a rockstar profile!

  1.  Set up your complete Profile, Bio, photo, website, email, phone #, etc.
  2. Add in your past sales!  You can do this one by one by doing a search of an address and claiming the seller or buyer side OR you can download the past 3 years right from the MLS and email over to Zillow in a spreadsheet!  (Get with Heather and she will do this for you).
  3. Download the Zillow Premier App!  No, you do NOT need to be a Premier agent to download the app!  With this app you can manage you profile and get push notifications when someone contacts you regarding your listing or finds you as they are searching for agents on Zillow!
  4. Give your listings a video enhancement only available by using the zillow premier app and going to your property for a walk thru!  These videos are giving properties a HUGE advantage!
  5. Go into your listings and edit them.  Make sure that all of the information pulled correctly from the MLS AND you can add additional information that is not pulled from the feed!
  6. Make sure your listings have a minimum of 20 photos so they pull up on top of a search!  Don’t have that many photos of your listing?  No problem, use those area photos to fill up those extra spaces!
  7. Make sure you are asking for reviews!  You can send from your email or via text using your unique url in your account!  Did you know that you can get a review even if you never closed on a property?

 

Follow up Scripts

10-Day Lead Conversion Plan

Here are some other helpful videos!

Three Secrets to Win the First Conversation

The Ultimate 3 Point Plan to Double Your Conversion Rate

Fundamentals to Nurturing Your Lead Database

These are just the top tips but if you need ANY help getting your account up and going, set up your one on one meeting with Heather and she can guide you through every step!  She is also willing to go with you to your property to help you do your video walk thru of your listing!

More Buyers and Sellers Think RE/MAX

Brand awareness matters. It determines what neighbors recommend to one another, the name consumers enter into search engines, and who people trust as their guide when making big life decisions – such as buying or selling a home. Which is why when a study shows RE/MAX is the real estate brand that comes to mind most, it’s a big deal.

Brand power – just part of the full package of experience and service RE/MAX agents bring to the table.

challenges

7. How should we celebrate Birthdays?

We asked this question again since we did have agents interested in the monthly gatherings but we will continue to do what we started this year and send out cards and social love!

birthdays

Suggestions to add/ remove:

We had some great responses and are looking to add your improvements to the office(s)!

  • We will be adding smart TV’s to our Palm Bay, Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island Offices so that you can use the conference room TV’s as a computer.  We will also be adding this feature the the current TV’s in the Melbourne office!
  • We are in the process of adding more office spaces to the Suntree location, getting our new Cocoa Beach up and running and will be expanding our Palm Bay location!
  • We will be working on a mass text message system for training and event reminders as well as a monthly schedule displayed at all offices by the copy machine.
  • We will be working on doing weekly quick video tutorials on different programs for those that can not make the hands on training classes.
  • We have already contacted RE/MAX, LLC and received the green light for a south Beachside office!  Once we have a few committed NEW agents for this location we will move forward with our 5th location!
  • We have already begun removing some of the cactus in our Melbourne office, we agree, those things are dangerous!  We are not sure what the developer was thinking!

Best suggestion…. We would love to build a second floor and incorporate a workout gym, sauna and possibly a hot tub but we need to work on other improvements first and then will look at these ideas!  😉

Thank you to everyone who participated in this years Survey!  This is YOUR office and we want to make sure you know that you are heard!  Tools that we implement are from your suggestions and we are always looking for input because we know that there is ALWAYS room for improvement!

JB, Lisi, Susan & Heather

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

The photo and information displayed on these projects are pulled from your RE/MAX Design Center Profile.

If an agent misses or accidentally deletes one of these emails they can get links to the project the day after the listing is made active. Instructions for finding the links are found in this FAQ entry: Where can I find links to projects I’ve hosted, or for projects that were autocreated and hosted for me?

Agents who would like to make changes to the autocreated projects before sharing the links may find this FAQ entry to be helpful:
How do I make changes to a project I’ve already created, or a project that was autocreated for me?

Also, here are links to two pages that help agents understand the interaction between autocreated projects, and changes made to listings after the autocreated projects have been posted:

I’ve changed the text in the listing on my listing site. How do I update the text in the Design Center projects that were autocreated for this listing?

I’ve changed the photos in the listing on my listing site. How do I update the photos in the Design Center projects that were autocreated for this listing?

Important notes:

  • Active listings must be visible on remax.com and correctly associated with the agent, with syndication correctly configured in order for projects to be automatically created for active listings. If you are in need of instructions, please click here.
