Real Estate Agent Review Sites - Congrats Son Huynh, #1 Agent in Indiana

"Hey, I recognize you....  Help me with your name again, please," says Blake from Top Producer. "Son Huynh, Realtor in Fort Wayne, Indiana," replies Son.  **Big smile from Blake** "Sure, I know you, you're the #1 recommended agent in Indiana!  I use you as an example in all my presentations to real estate offices around the Midwest." 

That's when the reality of social proof and real estate agent review sites hit me... HARD.  First off I was very happy for and proud of my friend Son.  Next, I quick pulled out my Kodak Zi-8 to capture this moment!

Son Huynh, #1 Agent in Indiana

Again, congrats to Son Huynh, #1 Agent in Indiana on real estate agent review site IncredibleAgents.  Would you help me recognize Son's accomplishment?  Consider hitting "suggest" in the upper right! I'd like to see the look on his face if we can get him to the top of not only IncredibleAgents, but of Active Rain as well!

In his post You Are the MP3 - Would I Download You, Chris Smith, of Tech Savvy Agent fame, stunned me with this:

"Think about Ebay and Amazon.com for a moment. These are 2 of the largest e-commerce sites on the web and what is happening at the simplest level is that people are buying things from people that they do not know based 100% on the opinions/reviews of other people that they do not know."  - Chris Smith

WOW!  I was a believer when I read the post, but after witnessing what happened with Son Huynh and Blake Morris, I'm completely SOLD.  If we're not asking for customer reviews on real estate agent review sites, on LinkedIn, on Facified, on Yelp, on Google Places, we're missing the boat!  To give you an example, when people see my LinkedIn profile they find 30 people saying that I'm a stand-up guy.  Powerful?  You bet!  Can't tell you how many loans I've written because of those 30 recommendations!

You Are the MP3So, first give Son some kudos by hitting "suggest."  Next, make a quick comment below. And finally, check out You Are the MP3

Start TODAY to develop your online reputation, your personal brand, your Klout.  Call it what you will, it's here.  Either ride the wave or get crushed on the coral below.  See you on top!

Chris, that's really awesome of you trying to get Son to the top (not like he's not already there.)  I guess I never really understood how important those testimonials really are.  I'm going to call past clients and see if I can scrounge up some!

I agree 100% with you Chris.
The customer is looking for someone they can TRUST and to earn that trust you got to have verifiable PROOF. I have always actively asked for references and testimonials from clients. I always like to tell my customers, "hey, I could tell you how great I am, but I'm the sales guy:) Why not ask these other people, who were in the same boat as you are now, about their experience working with me"
I also like to have plenty of testimonials from agents and others I work with as it helps my credibility and gets their name and face out there too with no cost and no RESPA issues.

Linda - I guess I didn't either, until a complete stranger recognized my friend in a city 200 miles away... Whoa!  Ok, count me in!

Nick - !@$!@#$ RESPA.  Don't get me started!!!!! LOL

Corinne - Wave of the future.  I'd rather be on the wave than under the water....  How about you?  :-)

YOU GUYS DID IT!  Son got featured on the front page of Active Rain.

On my behalf, and on Son's-------  YOU ROCK!

And, NO!  That's not me!  That's Borat, from the worst movie I've ever seen!

If you found that one to be useful I've put together a collection of my own Realtor tips as well as others' videos that I've found insightful.  You can click here for the Realtor Coaching Tips.

Still trying to figure this here Active Rain thingamadoober out, so I appreciate the encouragement!
