Real estate agents actively using ReachFactor to promote their client reviews and listings are well aware that your online reputation is your most important asset—and not just a way to conduct your real estate agent marketing. It’s what prospects are looking for when they search through the pool of agents in the areas where they own homes or are looking to move. And the beauty of the internet is that real estate agents can easily and comprehensively promote their ability to handle a home sale transaction, years of experience and inter-personal skills—yet another reason why it’s important to preserve and maintain your online reputation with all the smarts at your disposal.
