Realtor with technologyWe've worked directly with thousands of Realtors over the past decade, and our business is built alongside top-producing real estate agents who see a positive ROI and improved GCI from our real estate technology.

As a result, we've become experts in lead generation and conversion, and we know what it takes to find new buyers and sellers online, and then convert them into actual clients.

The details of each successful strategy vary a bit, but not as much as you may think. In fact, almost every powerful lead gen and conversion strategy starts with the same two tech tools: a website and a CRM.

In today's post, we're going to talk a bit about these two tools, and why every Realtor needs them if they want to improve their GCI. Without further ado,

One of the most powerful ways you can show off your team is through agent profiles and, if applicable, office profiles. This section of the site allows Realtors to give a strong first impression, reinforce their credibility, and share a little bit about themselves.

Because the agent and office bios are actually quite similar in many ways, this post is going to focus on how to make the most of the agent profiles on the site, with some tips for office profiles thrown in too.

1. Add a friendly, professional photo

Choose a photo that's

Once this is done, our clients start seeing significant improvements in lead generation.

But then their progress stops. The leads accumulate, yet nothing happens. We've watched agents generate more leads than they can handle, yet... no sales. In the end, these agents end up thinking their leads are garbage and their website investment was a waste of money.
