Things Got Worse (Re: Zillow & Your Listings)

Posted on: June 19th, 2017 by Tim Garcia

JUST IN: “…realtors are up in arms that the homeowner can complete the transaction with or without their services [thanks to Zillow’s new ‘Instant Offers’].

Not only will this disempower and listing agents – it comes with a price tag for Zillow who is poised “to disrupt the residential real estate industry AND put over 70% of its ad revenue at risk.” Read full story here.

Can you believe it?

Thankfully, there’s hope. You have the power to fight back.
Get your homesellers habitually turning to YOU, NOT Zillow, with Seller’s Corner.

Millennials: A New Source for Increased Listings.

Posted on: May 24th, 2017 by Tim Garcia

Howdy folks,

Tim here, how’s your week going?
With inventory at record lows, it’s imperative to secure listing opportunities by any means necessary. Agreed?

This includes targeting the hottest homebuyer demographic in the nation: millennials.
The logic behind this? Your homebuyers become your homeowners, and your homeowners eventually become your home sellers. So, let’s start at the very beginning (a very good place to start) – pre-paving more listings by securing more homebuyers (i.e. – your eventual home sellers). Sound good?

A few critical statistics:
– “Millennials [are] the nation’s largest living generation.
– “Millennials make up 42% of all homebuyers overall, first-time or not.
– “Millennials are 56% of America’s first-time homebuyers.” (Source:

Another recent report from the American Press Institute found that:
88% of Millennials get their news from Facebook.” (Source:

A second report states the obvious: “Millennials Are Digital Shoppers
The same study concluded that: “For both social networks and advertisers [realtors and agents] to attract Millennials, they need to offer valuable content, whether that’s new features or useful information.” (Source:

Keeping Sellers At Your Beck And Call.

Posted on: March 14th, 2017 by Tim Garcia


Hey there,

I hope you’re having an amazing week so far.

Check this out: 90% of homebuyers begin their search online. That’s an astounding number, right? And 32% are first-time homebuyers, which means they’ll need an agent for years and years to come.

What’s even crazier is that 89% of homebuyers that live in their agent’s database claim they will use their agent again during their next transaction.

But here’s the kicker: Only 11% do.

And who are these 11-percenters? To be frank, they’re typically your close friends and family. You know, referrals and contacts that are insanely loyal to you. These are the folks that would follow you into the Sahara Desert without so much as a bottle of water or sunblock.

So let’s go back to that original 90%. When they are ready to buy and sell again, where do they find their next agent? Do they suddenly start combing through newspaper and magazine advertisements?

Heck no.

These folks are still searching through the noisy and cluttered Internet to find agents.

That’s why it’s essential that you stay top-of-mind with your clients long after a transaction. Email them with relevant, helpful, and insightful content. Send them original emails and newsletters with your expert advice. Provide them with links from around the web that inform and entertain.

Want to really stand out from your competition? Provide your clients with a holistic view of their home’s value. They’ll bookmark that page and follow it the way they do the stock market. With this in mind, send them relevant content on how they can increase the value of their home. I’m talking remodeling tips, landscaping tricks, and really anything that can increase their home’s ROI.

And guess what? When it’s time to buy, sell, or refer a friend, you’ll be the first person they think of.

Pretty sweet, yes?

We’re here to help you. Let’s get started.

The Most Expensive Website In The World Goes To…

Posted on: April 18th, 2015 by Tim Garcia




Our VP of Sales and Marketing had himself a blog rant. We hope you like it.
The most expensive website in the world goes to…..

You! Congratulations on being able to afford a website that costs you 6 figures every year. You must be rich.

Wait! You don’t pay 6 figures for your website?
No, no, you actually do. Here’s how:

Your database has 250 contacts.
You did 7 deals last year.
For every 10 contacts in your database, should equal a transaction (buyer, listing, or a referral).
So you missed out on 18 deals. Holy Smokes! 

Multiply that by your average commission (lets say $8,000)
Grand total = $144,000 in business.


Remember, free is never free.
Everything comes at a price, and in your case, it comes at a hefty price.
If I’m not mistaken, you got into real estate to make money, not run a non-profit.

However, your free broker website made that possible. 
Real Estate Charity: Giving business away to less deserving, less experienced agents and not getting anything in return. Wow.
