More about bldr below ...

 

Check out the [b]bldr full press release here!

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 
KoaWare is excited to officially announce bldr, the most easy to use agent & broker website building platform specifically built for real estate. bldr focuses on instant customization through it’s directly editable, drag + drop platform; as opposed to rigid template based designs, and the constant back and forth between account managers, bldr provides a library of individual sections to custom create a great looking agent/broker website.

The KoaWare team worked incredibly hard to create a fast, intuitive, and powerfully simple platform. We conducted an in-depth beta phase where we collected feedback, encountered issues, found opportunities, and channeled all of those learnings into building a bigger-better-faster-stronger platform.

bldr allows agents and brokerages to take control of their brand and make changes in real time, as new business opportunities develop. It allows users to focus on creating original content and building their own personalized, digital branding.

People visiting agent and broker websites are there to do their research. They want to find out who you are, what you do, and see your successes. Tell your story, share your message, and prove your worth to incoming leads.

Using Video to Get Real Estate Agents as Clients; plus, camera gear for video shoot and post

@GlennTremain writes:

All the equipment a real estate agent would have to buy, then the $$$$ spent on training, etc.

Its something you need to bring up. It IS a value that no one talks about and if you don't then the negotiation goes to price between providers.

This is no different than when you go and buy a car. You just want their best price but they show you the features and things that the other car doesn't have. 

If you bring your equipment let them see it and touch it and talk about what each does. That adds value that shows you have craftsmanship and not just a button pusher. 

Great closing tool as part of your presentation is you ask me. Thanks @GeorgeK
