Here Is A Breakdown Of Each Tool And How It Impacts Your Business!

Commercially Printed Permanent Flyer (With Text Code)

To help set our listings apart from those with the passé paper flyers, or heaven forbid no flyers, we utilize our professional printed perma flyer that attaches to the signpost; making it easy for potential buyers to get information on your seller's home.  Our listing launch team will create and print this for you, AND have it shipped via UPS overnight to you or your seller at no cost.  The board gives potential buyers a sneak peek into your listing and allows them to get information via text or directly from the individual property website.  All text inquiries for information go directly to the listing agent, which means you can turn your listing into a lead generation tool.

 
 
 

Custom Listing Text Codes

When you create your listing in our back office, you'll be able to assign a text  code and have all the text inquiries captured right under the listing.  You can with one click text all these leads to announce an open house, offer in, price reduction, or for whatever you want.  This allows you to really leverage your listing for leads and provides a seamless way to communicate and follow-up with potential buyers.

 

Here is an example of what the text message looks like when a buyer texts the code on the marketing board

 

CRM, Lead Manager & Integrated IDX with Text Notification System

Our CRM/lead manager allows you to track your leads, set them up on daily or immediate property searches to ensure they see the most current listings hitting the MLS.  Our system is directly tied into the IDX so you can create searches for your clients and track their activity right from one dashboard.  In addition, your client is sent an email with the thumbnail photos of the properties, and when they click on the listing to view it, you are sent a text message so you know they are online looking.  Lastly, if the lead starts looking in another area, the Smart Search technology takes over and recommends an adjusted or new search directly to them.  This allows you to put your leads on autopilot and focus on the hot ready buyers you have in your pipeline.  Lastly, you get access to our lead management app so you manage all this directly from your mobile device.

 
 
 

Lead Texting Platform & Custom Text Codes

There is no better way to communicate with your leads than through text.  We've integrated a texting platform in our back office that allows you to communicate directly with your leads via the messaging app on their phone.  No special app or software is needed.  You can text directly back and forth right out of your back office dashboard.  In addition, if you are working in a farm, we can create a custom text code and direct it to any website or page you wish.  Feel free to give it a try.  Let us create a custom text code for your business.

Virtual Open House Technology

How would you like to hold an open house, but not physically be at the property?  We embed text chat code onto your seller's property website that allows you to engage with anyone who comes to the site for information but also allows you to conduct a virtual open house for your clients.  You can engage with prospects directly from the app on your phone or from your desktop computer.  How would you like to be at home watching the football game and engaging with potential buyers on your listing at the same time?  What a way to make yourself stand out at a listing presentation.

 

Create Your Own Property Website

Our system allows you to easily create a fully contained website for each of your listings that will feature all your photos, Google maps and Streetview, virtual tour and any other videos you want to create.  But that's not all, this is the foundation of our syndication program so all web traffic gets sent here, and we integrated a price reduction tool, "Offer Received" countdown timer, property text codes, integrated chat and much more.  Don't just settle for a basic property website from your title company or lender like everybody else has.  Utilize something that makes you stand out from your competition.

 
 

Full listing syndication

Why waste your time syndicating from the MLS and have them get all the click backs on your listing?  All TCT Listings get syndicated from our feed providing a direct click back to your seller's personal property website.  This not only helps with search engine rank and placement, but also feeds your seller's weekly hit report that is sent out so they see the activity you are driving to their property.

Weekly Client Hit Reporting

How many of you have clients who ask what you are doing to market their property and want to see proof of what is being done?  Now you can keep your clients in the know on autopilot.  Every week our system will send your clients an email (coming from your email address) to let them know how many hits they've had on their website.  How many agents have you seen advertising a Zillow link to their listing on social media?  Now you can drive social media traffic directly to a custom property website that was created specifically for your seller and have that traffic reflect on their weekly hit report.  Show your clients how hard you are working for them!

An Integrated Home Feedback System

We've integrated a custom home showing feedback system right into our back-office dashboard.  With a simple configuration of your Supra or Sentrilock account, every showing will get captured under your listing and a survey sent to the showing agent.  When the showing agent responds, you and the client will get a copy of the survey in your email.  In addition, when you get an offer you'll be able to email all the other agents and possibly solicit multiple offers on your listing with the client of a button.

 
 

Facebook & Google Retargeting For Your Listings

How many of you have gone on Amazon to look at a product and then see it follow you around Facebook and other websites?  This is retargeting, and we include this for all of your listings.  Our thought is, if someone has come to the property site once, we should do everything we can to get them to come back.  This drives more traffic and eyeball for your sellers and increases the possibility of buyer leads for you as the listing agent.  Our back-office automatically feeds your listings to our Facebook and Google retargeting feeds.  There is nothing you need to do to make this happen.  Again, another great way to stand out in front of a potential seller.

Zillow Premier App With Listing Video and 3D Walkthrough Tools

As a Zillow Broker participant, all our agents get access to the Zillow listing video and 3D Walkthrough tool to boost your listing on Zillow and help you stand out to your clients.  Every agent is telling the customer they are being fed to Zillow, but what are you doing to make your listing stand out to both your seller and to buyers looking on Zillow.  With these tools, not only will your listing receive higher placement on Zillow, you'll be providing something that makes you stand out at the listing presentation and to people looking at your listings online.

 
 

Listing Offer Notification Email Tool

This tool ties in with our home feedback system.  When you receive an offer, you'll be able to email all the other showing agents with the client of a button.  All you need to do is uncheck the agent who submitted the offer and then click Email Now to send an offer notification email.  In addition, if an agent contacts you via phone or text with feedback, you can manually enter it by clicking "Enter Now" beside the agent's name and those responses will be sent via email directly to your client.

 

Customizable Action Plans To Automate Lead Follow-Up

Efficiency is the name of the game.  What if you could create action plans that not only reminded you of tasks you needed to complete for each of your leads, but also automated emails and text messages for follow-up.  Would that make your life easier and allow you to focus on those tasks that needed your immediate attention.  Our back-office system will allow you to create action plans for different types of leads (open house, online buyers, sellers, etc.) and you can customize texts, emails, and reminders to ensure that nothing is missed and you can focus on your ready to go buyers and sellers.

 
 

Mobile App With Augmented Reality

You will also get access to our mobile consumer app for your clients, with our multi-state comingled IDX feed.  Clients will be able to set up their own searches,  see nearby homes based on their location and can take notes and add their own photos of properties they are touring with you.  In addition, they will have access to the augmented reality feature that allows them to see listings as they are viewing through the camera on their mobile device.

 

 

Flat Fee Graduated Commission Structure

Here is an overview of our flat fee graduated commission structure.  The total commission is calculated on the selling price of the home, not how much commission you are getting paid.  Our goal is to offer a competitive commission structure, but way more technology and tools than what other brokerages are providing, allowing you to keep more and stay ahead of your competition and acquire more clients and leads.
