One of the most important things a real estate professional can do for his or her business is to establish a good reputation. The National Association of Realtors reported in 2010 that buyers identified honesty and trustworthiness as well as the agent’s reputation as the most important factors when choosing an agent. Establishing your reputation can be as simple as asking your clients to write endorsements that will appear on your Homes.com agent profile, you can also go the extra mile by actively demonstrating your value to potential clients in the Q&A Community.

When advertising your real estate listings online, the most important thing is making sure they stand out. Whether you accomplish this by displaying an unlimited amount of photos, specific home descriptions or prominent listing placement on a real estate website, these features could make or break a persons interest in the home.
But, wouldn’t it make most sense to advertise your real estate listings to the best of your ability with all of these features? On Homes.com we offer agents the opportunity to attract the most attention to their listings with Preferred Agent real estate advertising.

With a MyHomes Agent Profile, agents are featured in the Homes.com Agent Directory, which features the agent and their personal contact info in local agent search results; however, only preferred agents, can also feature their listings directly in their profile. Continue reading →
