Sothebys International Realty Canada - agent and office websites:
Greetings to the good agents of Sotheby's International Realty
Canada. For those you of who don't know me, I am Morgan Carey, CEO
of Real Estate Webmasters, the producer and website vendor for your
corporate site SothebysRealty.ca
A few weeks ago, I flew over for a meeting with Ross McCredie (Sotheby's Canada CEO) and Hien Tran (Sotheby's Canada Technical Consultant) to discuss the possibility of providing website products for the various offices and agents of Sothebys International Realty Canada growing program. After a very productive meeting and a few weeks of development, I am pleased to announce we have completed phase one of the agent / office website project for Sotheby's and can now begin taking orders from the agents and offices of Sothebys International Realty Canada.
Two tiers of websites available:
Agent / standard website: A fully hosted website, custom skinned with the Sotheby's brand at a significant discount. Retail on this package is just over $3000 USD setup, and $79.95 USD per month. As a Sotheby's agent you can purchase one of these powerful website templates for only $200 setup and $30 per month. That's over $2800 USD savings on setup, and $50 less than retail in monthly fees. Here is a sample template: www.sirlocal.com
Broker / Office / Region website: Our $10,000 USD "LEC" (Limited Edition Custom) website for only $4500 (savings of over $5000 USD) - hosting fees for the brokerage / office sites is $79.95 per month. This site (example here) comes completely loaded with built-in Sotheby's-data-powered IDX search, agent roster module, quick search, featured listings, multi user blog, office/agent lead management, full content management system and unlimited content uploads. As you will see from our coverage area in the US, this product is incredibly popular (at the retail price) so at the Sotheby's dicount price, this investment is a no-brainer. *LEC 5 is replaced by LEC 2 in Vancouver - market exclusives waived for Sotheby's offices / agents as long as they are with Sotheby's Canada.
Our retail prices are in USD - however Sotheby's has asked me to make these prices Canadian, and I am happy to oblige. So each USD price estimated above, you can cross out the USD and put CND.
How to order:
Just email firstname.lastname@example.org and request either a Sotheby's "agent site" or "broker site" and we will be happy to send you an invoice. We will need the following to create your customer account: First name, last name, email, phone, physical address.
Yes you can order customizations to the product. Once you have ordered one of these sites, you are then a retail REW customer and can request estimates for any custom modifications you like. Our billing is normally $125 USD per hour - once again you may convert this to Canadian for Sotheby's Canada customers.
Thanks again Ross / Hien for the opportunity - we look forward to servicing the many agents / offices of Sotheby's Canada, and adding additional functionality / built in modules as this program matures.
If you have questions, by all means post them in the comments section of this blog below, and I will be happy to answer them.
