Google Maps is so much more than a digital version of a paper map. I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t use Google Maps in some form. I use Google Maps on my mobile for navigation, using Streetview to give me a quick kerbside view of the home as I take an appraisal call, plotting available listings on the Satellite view, sending driving instructions to a buyer or checking traffic for the drive home. Google Maps is an essential tool in any real estate agents arsenal and with the addition of 45degree aerial views it’s only getting better
Over the past couple of weeks we have been finalising our brand spanking new website with Ryan from Agentpoint who are specialist real estate website developer.
I think every real estate agent finds out in their first week in the industry that client testimonials are gold. Client feedback goes well beyond the occasional testimonial and the better agencies invest in detailed client surveys so they can take a real measure of their performance. Till now most real estate agents have really been restricted to paper surveys (complete with reply paid envelope) or investing significant time with the online survey companies to make a fit our industry.
