Realty Executives NY: Why Instagram?

Blog Challenge Day 5!

We are sure that by now you have an Instagram or you have at least heard of it.  Here at Realty Executives NY, we have become quite fond of this latest form of social media.  Instagram has become a creative platform from which we share our regional photos of our agents, events, and trainings. We enjoy the immediate connection with our followers and love the simplicity of a simple photo to express our thoughts or ideas.

Here are our Realty Executives of New York 4 Tips to Get started:

camera

  1. Purchase a great camera. This first tip is quite important.  There is nothing worse than a photo that is pixelated.
  2. Stick to a set niche.  If you are creating an account about Real Estate, post photos related to housing, buying, selling, or tips of the trade.
  3. Find the Perfect Lighting.  You have seen the photos where nothing in the frame is visible.  The right lighting will give you clearer pictures and draw in more followers.
  4. Quality not Quantity. Be sure to post photos that have significance to your viewers and followers.  Post at least 1 time a day and no more than 5 times a day.

See you all tomorrow!

The Realty Executives Brand

Power of the Brand

The Realty Executives brand is our company’s most valuable asset. It has taken many years of hard work and careful planning to create a culture that meets the highest standards time after time. ExecutiveRealty Executives carries a brand reputation, which resonates with customers to build trust and increase the effectiveness of our Executives (sales agents). The Realty Executives name represents a unique standard for our customers and inspires an unrivaled level of confidence. An “Executive” is perceived to be more than just an “Agent” by both our customers and the industry-at-large.

Our Executives are perceived as:

  • Experienced
  • Knowledgeable
  • Professionals with integrity
  • Able to sell home faster for more money
  • Highly trained
  • Community and industry leaders
  • And more importantly — more trustworthy

We believe there is no greater sales tool than a brand that stands for integrity, character, trust and experience. Our Executives benefit from this reputation of excellence.

Realty Executives New Systems

Good Morning…well more like Good Afternoon Executives, Agents, and Friends!

Realty Executives NY was just on a conference call this morning with Realty Executives International for their MSA Mastermind Series and they had some awesome news to share with us!

Realty Executives International are remaking and revamping the RealtyExecutives.com website and Portal System.  They haven’t let us see the final product, just yet, but it is rolling out in the coming weeks.  We are very excited because they are making the Portal System more user friendly and still incorporating the Mobile Marketing and Edge System that were available before. So no worries there.  You will still be able to access those accounts.

Once the new systems are put into place we will update you as well as create informational trainings to clarify the transition.

Realty Executives NY agents keep an eye out for emails regarding the new transitions!

Realty Executives NY: FidelityAgent 3.0 App

Fidelity Agent 3.0

This morning, Realty Executives of New York welcomed Joe Diliberti and Caleb Tidwell from Fidelity National Title to our headquarters in Astoria, NY.  Mr. Diliberti is the Queens Representative and began discussing how their new application FidelityAgent3.0 is pretty revolutionary in assisting real estate agents.

fidelity

It was then up to Caleb Tidwell to discuss all the features available to the application and convince us real estate agents that it’s worthwhile.  He began by explaining the difference in the buyers feature and sellers features.  He explained how all the calculation for transfer taxes, and all other debits and credits are provide and auto-calculated. For the Buyers, realtors are able to create a quick calculation of closing costs including down payment, interest, and taxes.  Once this is created the app is able to send your buyer a comprehensive breakdown to email or text. On the sellers end, realtors are able to create a net sheet.  Just like the buyers feature, you are able to email or text to the seller.

appWe appreciated the time and hope that the agents that attended the meeting will let us know how the app works for them.

Thank you,

Zillow Visits Realty Executives Today

On Wednesday September 3rd, 2014 one of our locations Realty Executives Today hosted Zillow Senior Consultant Marco Druzetich.  Mr. Druzetich guided the agents through the websites most popular features and tools to increase an agents marketability.

zillow

As an agent, I am sure you have heard of the Zillow Zestimate.  Maybe you have had clients coming in saying that Zillow said their house is worth so and so when in actuality it isn’t valued at that price.  He explained the Zestimate and what Zillow looks at when creating that pesky number. According to Mr. Druzetich the Queens area Zestimates are off by 6%.  That is quite a large difference when looking at houses in the $800,000 to $900,000. That 6% makes a difference.  So what does Zillow look at?

Zillow looks at Property taxes and sold properties.  However you should inform your clients that Zillow isn’t entering into the houses and rentals.  They cannot see the work that will be needed or the potential value of the property.  They recommend the listing agent commenting under agent comments why they think the property is actually not worth that value.

Before Leaving Mr. Druzetich discussed what agents could do to increase their visibility on Zillow.  Here is one we will share with you.  Ask your clients to give you recommendations and reviews.  This is a great way to gather more of those buyers searching around Zillow’s website.

A warm thank you to Mr. Druzetich for stopping by Realty Executives Today.

Good Luck Agents and Happy Prospecting!
