Lynn Friedman called me this morning to ask for my email address, and I gave her email@example.com. I guess the realtor.com email address was impressive, because she asked how I got it that email.
I got my Realtor.com email forwarding address many years ago, and I use it for marketing materials and online postings. I don't want to put my "real" email address online or in marketing materials because I get way too much spam already!
I told Lynn that she could get a realtor.com email address also and it's very simple. I told her I would post instructions here on AR for her and our fellow colleagues. It's great because once you give your email address, EVERYONE instantly knows what career you have! There's no guessing because the domain name speaks for itself.
ALERT: Did you know that you also can get a Realtor.com email? And did you know that it's FREE?!?
This is an email FORWARDING address so you cannot send outgoing emails from this address. However, it's great for incoming emails because it filters out (some) spam and then sends directly to your regular email.
Want the recognition and prestige of a branded email address that's much more professional than gmail, yahoo, or hotmail? Take a moment to secure your own REALTOR.COM email address.
