Realtor reviews on social media leave a lot to be desired. Not only is every agent sporting a nearly perfect five stars on Facebook, but for realtors, acquiring leads from their friend list is a near-impossible endeavour. This is why social media marketing is a pay-to-play game, but it doesn’t guarantee any sales.
Realtor review sites are changing the game in terms of how buyers and sellers find their agents, and how agents get leads.
Along with peer recommendations, review sites like Yelp and Rate-My-Agent.com are where most people start their search for realtors in a new area, a new property type, or when first getting into the market. A survey by BrightLocal found, 76% trust online reviews as much as recommendations from family and friends.
