IDX Websites and Wordpress Powered Blogs

Let’s face it.  As a real estate agent, your time is valuable. Your job requires you to have expertise in sales, marketing, the financial and legal fields, and sometimes a fair amount of handholding with excited/nervous and even needy buyers and sellers.  What you don’t have time for is to be a Web developer or spend months working on a website only to be disappointed with the end result (often at an extraordinary cost with outrageous set-up fees and no control).

Finally . . . A Better Choice

New from Zillow: The Premier Agent Website for real estate agents is now available.
This is designed for agents who:

  • do not have their own website
  • wish to improve on their current website
  • want to start an additional no-hassle site for a specific niche market, audience, or hyper-local neighborhood/community.

Best of all, it’s included with our Premier Agent program

or is just $10 a month (with no set-up fees) for anyone else.*


Unmatched Benefits

Imagine having a site created and set up to do everything you dreamed and expected a website could and should do? Cultivate traffic, provide value to clients, capture prospects and contacts, convert Internet-generated leads into clients, track and manage your relationships, and so much more. No programming skills or tech-savvy expertise required! The Premier Agent Website comes with easy-to-modify designs, simple customization, plus complimentary online training and support.

Features That Can’t Be Beat

  • MLS property search through IDX

Seems pretty cool - Suggested. Hope that others see this- nice to see that there are webinars already lined up so agents can learn more soon!

Hi Dorie - I couldn't sleep all night. I knew they were launching this at 5:30am and I have been waiting for this day to come since I joined Zillow.  I have seen so many agents struggle with this and now there's a way I can help get them up and running almost instantly.  Thanks for reading and commenting, always great to hear from you.  :-)

Sounds too good to be true. I hope many agents tune in and weigh in with their experiences with your new product. Good luck.

Good morning Ellie - thank you for the suggested feature.

We are all really excited about this.  It's awesome to have these now available for anyone that wants a combo IDX, Wordpress powered, Website/Blog that has everything built into it.  It's all the stuff I've been trying to teach folks the last 6 years... Plus free training, support, webinars etc.  Today really is a GREAT day!! 

Thanks for reading and commenting.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Karen - I agree, and I hope so too. 

I've been working on these for a few weeks now and I have to tell you, the team who designed and developed these did a phenominal job!!  Once you see them, use them, and start hearing from others how easy and effective they are, I'm sure you'll agree. 

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Hi Brad... I can think of a lot of real estate brokers who could use this solution. Good luck with the launch.

Posted by Rene Fabre, Marketing in the Digital Age (First American Title) over 8 years ago

Rene - thanks. us too.  That's why we did this. :-) 

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Certainly looks like an incredible deal for agents starting out. I run Diverse IDX which would be a good IDX component to this solution. Thanks

Posted by David Grbich, Orange County Real Estate - 949-500-0484 (Realty One Group - www.FindCARealEstate.com) over 8 years ago

David - thanks for commenting.

DS IDX IS an optional component of these sites. They're really a suite of bundled (optional) combinations that make these website/blogs easy, yet powerful and effective.  Take a second to check em out, you may find a need to try one out for a specific niche market, community, or neighborhood. 

Honestly... I've been working with Wordpress and blogging sites/platforms for many years now and have never seen anything quite like what we launched today.

Look what these agents have already done:

Hey Brad,

I just called Zillow to sign up for this.

It appears that my MLS is not available yet though.

So, I called my MLS and told them to get on the ball and partner up with Zillow on this.

If you hear anything else or if the Triangle MLS becomes available for this program, please let me know.

Hope all is well with you.

Hi Hannah - the video is only 1:43 minutes and says it all! Watch it when you can...it's cute, funny, and realistic.

Thanks for the ReBlog~  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Hey Craig - I shared and forwarded your comment to a couple folks at Zillow, if I hear anything about that area or get any new intel, I'll be sure to let you know.  Thanks my friend, I'm doing well and hope the same for you.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Hi Brad,

I like my website now but this sounds pretty fun and I'm wondering if it will get us some of the Zillow juices.  I've signed up for the webinar on Monday to give it a look over.

Thanks for letting us know!  Hope all else is good for you and your famiily!

Posted by DeeDee Riley, Realtor - El Dorado Hills & the Surrounding Areas (Lyon Real Estate - El Dorado Hills CA) over 8 years ago

Hi DeeDee, I like your website too!!  :-) 

These sites have a rich SEO set up with really solid page tagging, IDX listings are index friendly, and even the non-SEO savvy can customize all their SEO pages and tagging.  (See screen shot below)

Looking forward to seeing you on monday .  :-)


BTW - Here's 10 Things You Probably Don't Know about our New Websites...


Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Good evening Brad. I hope they are better at website design than giving accurate info on their site. I get beat down at least a couple times a week for Zillow listings that are outdated or sold. Agents really need a strong web presence these days. Any idea how Goggle likes these new pages?

Posted by Randy Ostrander, Real Estate Broker, Serving Big Rapids and West Central MI (Lake and Lodge Realty LLC ) over 8 years ago

Ok, Brad, it's a Saturday nite after a busy real estate day and I'm a little bit burned out. So, I've hit
"bookmarked" so that I can really concentrate on what you're suggesting!

 

Posted by Gayle Rich-Boxman Fishhawk Lake Real Estate, "Your Local Expert!" 503-755-2905 (John L Scott Market Center) over 8 years ago

Hey Randy - just explain to your "beat-downers" that there are 106,000,000 plus homes on Zillow and not all of them are for sale.  I think once you dive down deeper with those prospects, you can convert them to clients.  Remember that the syndicated listings on Zillow only represent a very small percentage of the homes consumers access on our site everyday. Even your home is on the site Randy, but that doesn't mean it's outdated just because it's sold. This is a common misunderstanding and exactly why I run Zillow Academy.  :-))

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Hi Gayle - Come to the webinars I'll be teaching today, they're free and we'll explain and show you in detail how easy and fast these sites are to create.  More importantly, how powerful and effective they can and will be if you put your IDX and some great content on the pages.

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago
If the message wasn't coming from you, I'd say that this is too good to be true. But, I trust you so I'll check it out for myself.
Posted by Mark Delgado, Benicia and Vallejo, Property Management, rental h (houses for rent, Solano County & Glen Cove) over 8 years ago

Mark - it's too good and it's true!  :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) over 8 years ago

Brad, Thank you for the information. I know several Realtors in my office that will benefit from these webinars.

Posted by Carol Faaland-Kronmaier, PhD, e-PRO, Manville, Hillsborough, Somerset NJ (Weichert, Realtors; Hillsborough) over 8 years ago

Hey Tristan - these sites really do rock.

A wordpress platform that has SEO built in, no programming or technical skills needed, IDX and already setup for mobile...  the ultimate tool and service agents have been wanting and looking for since the inception of the web.

The IDX provider is Diverse Solutions on the Premier Agent sites, what does ClickSold bring to the table? I'd love to hear more about your product and services.
