Why You Should and How to Create a Map of Your Real Estate Contact List

Posted by Brian Lim on May 2, 2019 8:15:01 AM

A fun and easy tactic to help you become a neighborhood expert is to map out your contact list on Google Maps. It's sort of like viewing your properties in the game Monopoly and creating a strategy based on the layout of the board. By creating a visual map, you see your territory from a different angle, where your evangelists are located, and where your contacts are in reference to important locations like schools, parks, freeway entrances, bodies of water, and more.

Before I show you how to map out your contact list, I will show you an example, the benefits, and how to leverage your contact list map.

What is Broker Reciprocity and Should Real Estate Do It?

Posted by Brian Lim on Apr 23, 2019 4:00:00 AM

Just so we’re all on the same page, broker reciprocity is when brokers or agents give each other permission to show their listings on each other’s websites. They can collaborate through a free program, the Broker Reciprocity Subscribers, or through a verbal/written agreement.

Let’s look at additional ways that an agent or broker, like yourself, can leverage it.

In this article, I will list the benefits of broker reciprocity to increase exposure, drive traffic to your website, and provide a better experience for your website visitors.

What is HTTPS and Do Real Estate Agents Need It?

Posted by Brian Lim on Apr 18, 2019 6:53:47 AM

What is HTTPS? Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure (HTTPS) is the secure version of HTTP, the protocol that data is sent between your website browser (Ex: Google, Yahoo, Bing) and the website that you are connecting to. When your computer encounters a HTTPS website, they start communicating in a different language, or encrypting, so it’s difficult for hackers to decode it – it’s similar to the unbreakable radio Navajo code used in the 2002 World War II film, Windtalkers.

In this blog article, I will discuss list the benefits of using secure HTTPS websites, compared to insecure HTTP websites.
