Hopefully some interesting info for about about a forward thinking model. Although it appears like shameless self-promotion, which of course it is, it is being described to you here in an open-source, free for others to use manner.
Dream Realty has a brokerage model that is kind of a combination of a Charles Ruttenberg low fees broker with a leads-generatingtechnologically advanced Listing Book™ type website showcasing the patent pendingbeBY™real estate search engine.
There is no brokerage office, though the broker is very responsive to the Agents. "Working with Shel is really a pleasure. He always makes himself very accessible, providing great insight. And, when it comes to technology, he is very sharp."
Gary Butki - Agent, Dream Realty.
Each Agent and the Broker work out of their home, or wherever.
The brokerage is also totally paperless and donates 3% of revenues to charitable causes.
Dream Realty charges only $50 per month and $250 per closing. In addition, we provide an awesome lead-generating web site with one of our Agent's picture and profile on the home page. They appear at random.
Any user that signs up is assigned to the profiled Agent with zero referral fee. Our sites attract many international buyers. In the last year, they have constituted 40% of our sales.
If an Agent wants to ensure they are on the home page, like in a link for an ad or in their signature, they can replace www.DreamRealty.com with TheirName.DreamRealty.com. Both sites will look the same, except the latter is guaranteed to display the Agent who's name is the web address.
1. beBY™ search engine. Users enter where they want to "be by" and within what distance. They can enter an address, a neighborhood, city, zipcode, MLS# or point of interest - like "I want to be within 10 miles of Tampa Airport."
We released this new technology a few months ago and have been getting excellent feedback - even from other brokers.
"DreamRealty.com is the best and easiest to use real estate website I've ever used. Try it - it's really good!"
Diane Klein - Broker, Klein Team Realty
2. Exceptional reporting of user activities. How long was their session? What was their search criteria? Which searches did they save? Which properties did they click on? Which properties did they save? and more...
3. Daily emails of new listings and price changes from you that go out to your sign-ups and link to your Dream Realty website.
4. A monthly custom newsletter with very little work on your part. You simply select the properties and write any intro paragraphs.
5. Details-packed MLS page. When one of your “leads/clients” clicks for details, which they can do from the Dream Realty home page, from your newsletter, from a direct link to the property or from your daily email updates, this is the page they will see. Your image, contact info and spiel will appear on the right.
Currently, we are only operating out of the Tampa Bay area, but we are looking to expand throughout Florida and beyond. If you are interesting in becoming an Agent or partnering with us, feel free to contact.
