A National Association of Realtors survey indicates that trustworthiness and reputation are the two most important factors for buyers choosing a real estate agent.

A recent survey from J.D. Power indicates that one-third of first-time real estate clients choose their agents based on reputation. And now that clients are able to rate and review their experiences with a real estate agent online, it is imperative that realtors begin online reputation management.

Here’s why: If you have no online reviews, you are easily sending your clients to other real estate agents or agencies that have been rated without ever giving your agency a chance. If you have negative online reviews, you are alerting future clients to never buy, sell or rent a house with you.

If you aren’t practicing online reputation management for realtors and real estate agents, you’re missing out on a real opportunity to generate leads without ever having to network or speak to clients in person. And since one single bad review can have a negative impact on your online reputation – and can even break your business – you don’t want to ignore it.

You have to continuously monitor the reviews sites to know what people are saying about you or your real estate agency, encourage clients to write online reviews and make sure positive feedback is posted to some of the top online review platforms on the web.
