Did you know that the National Association of REALTORS® was founded in 1908? Real estate marketing has come a long way since the first real estate agents began representing home buyers and sellers.
As you might suspect, agents didn’t have a lot of marketing resources available to them to promote their companies and market their clients’ listings. Word-of-mouth was an agent’s best opportunity to gain attention and build a strong business reputation.
Fast forward a century-plus, and the sheer number of real estate marketing resources at the disposal of agents, brokers, and their respective teams is overwhelming.
Comparative market analysis software, digital listing presentation templates, lead management solutions, and responsive MLS-integrated websites account for just a tiny portion of the tools, apps, and platforms real estate professionals use today. Each of these modern marketing resources help agents gain brand awareness and spread word of mouth to the world of internet search.
