Why you’re losing leads, listings and extra business

Why you’re losing leads, listings and extra business

  • Losing even a single lead can be a disaster. You never know how much potential referral and repeat business you might have lost.
  • Buyers can be just as valuable as vendors. Don’t neglect them.
  • Following up online leads in 5 minutes or less makes you 9 times more likely to convert.
  • For the highest chance of repeat or referral business, don’t forget about your clients once the closing papers are signed.

Meet the team: Tom McCarthy

Meet the team: Tom McCarthy

As you might be aware, we’re currently putting the finishing touches on the Rex mobile application; our new ‘office in your pocket’ that gives Google a run for their money. But first, we thought we’d introduce some of the team that brought it to life.

Meet Tom.

Tom, boy genius, is leading the mobile app development team. Tom joined our team last year after two successful careers in competitive video-gaming and digital marketing for a zany company that sold kitchen utensils of questionable usefulness.

Welcome to the ‘sharing economy’ for real estate

Welcome to the ‘sharing economy’ for real estate

Ahh, the ‘sharing economy’; the new age of free (or at least cheap) love and tech-powered community spirit. So what’s it mean for the real estate industry?

As everyone loves to remind us: Uber, the world’s largest taxi company, doesn’t own any cars. And Airbnb, the world’s largest ‘hotel’ chain, doesn’t own any rooms. Rather, these companies (and more), profit by creating platforms that allow consumers to share their stuff.

Facebook and Google aren’t free – what are you really paying?

Facebook and Google aren’t free – what are you really paying?

With no other product but their free software, Facebook’s 1.5 billion monthly users have garnered them a net worth of over $350 billion USD. Google, who also give away their products for the low, low price of absolutely nothing, are worth over $500 billion. How can this be? How can two of the world’s largest companies have a combined value of almost 1 trillion dollars – yet not charge a cent for their product?

A 5-minute analysis of social media trends in 2017

A 5-minute analysis of social media trends in 2017

It’s hard to understate the impact social media has had, and continues to have, on the world. Donald trump. Enough said. There’s no stopping this crazy train. Snapchat, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram – the vast majority of social media companies are rapidly evolving, and countless new marketing opportunities are opening up for us all as result.

Last year saw video explode across most social platforms, prompting brands to finally make use of that fancy camera in their iPhones – and brands were subsequently forced to start making better and better content in order to stand out.

Choosing the right real estate CRM for the New Year

Choosing the right real estate CRM for the New Year

Any business that wants to compete needs to arm itself with the best tech tools available.

Real estate is obviously no exception. In fact, being one of the most highly competitive industries around, making the right decision on your technology is doubly important. Sure, we can sit around and talk about the importance of the nice-to-haves like a VR headset, a DJI drone or a Matterport camera.

New construction technologies making housing more affordable

New construction technologies making housing more affordable

I used to be a stone mason. I’d mix concrete in wheelbarrows, lug rocks around and shape fridge-sized sandstone blocks with a mallet and a chisel. I loved it. I was out in the sun with some great blokes and ham sandwiches never tasted better. But working in a limited market meant jobs started to slow to a trickle. Because we were ‘purists’ (read: luddites) who did everything by hand, our work could take months to complete – and that made it expensive.

Want to get more done? Stop multitasking

Want to get more done? Stop multitasking

I don’t really believe in multitasking. Probably because I can’t do it. Sure you can drive and drink a coffee at the same time. But sometimes, while involved in a rigorous task like scratching my nose, I’ll forget to breathe. And tragically, for those like me with a sub-pentium head, multitasking seems like an essential skill to have in this fast-paced modern world.

2016; a year in review

2016; a year in review

This is the second year we’ve released our pre-Christmas review of the last twelve months – so I suppose you could call it a tradition by now. Sure, not quite as set-in-stone as Grandma’s pudding or the Japanese obsession with Yuletide KFC – but we’re certainly getting there.

Each year our users amaze us with the sheer bulk of work they somehow manage to get done.

7 real estate blogs to add to your Rex RSS feed

 

We’ve always had RSS feeds incorporated into your Rex dashboard. They’re generally considered a little old-fashioned these days, and you might think they’re a little out of place in a software paragon like Rex. A lost little man in a stovepipe hat, trapped in the past, shaking his fist out of the window of a rocketship. But still RSS feeds endure.
