Tips & Tools to Help Your Business

Should You Give Showing Feedback?
It can be valuable tool for sellers, but buyer’s agents have good reasons to limit what they say. Revealing your client’s thoughts about the home’s features or price, or their intention to submit an offer, could compromise the buyer’s negotiating position.
5 SEO strategies every real estate agent should use
There are often far more real estate professionals than people looking to purchase a home. Thus, the real estate market gets very congested, and it can be difficult for agents to stand out from the competition. Real estate agents can utilize the internet to help increase exposure to their  target audience . But this takes more work than simply posting on Facebook. Solid  SEO strategies  are vital if you want to have the most exposure possible.
