Are You Utilizing your Profile?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Corinne Guest, REALTOR® | Barrington Realty Company License: 471.000044

Today we had a question in the Q & A about a blog feed not showing on an AR members profile. Many did not even know they had the ability to add a feed. Kathleen Daniels asked me to write a short post because it appears many do not make use of their profile on at all.

Here's what we should all be doing. First claim your profile.

When you have found yourself, you can login and end up at

Here you can see your current listings, i.e. those listed under your agent ID.

There is also a listing performance section which looks like this:

The more important part is your profile.

Here you can add information about yourself:

Then you can add any testimonials you've received or ask for a ratings review:

Finally you can add your blog feed. Think Links people!!!!

And don't forget to add your Facebook page and Twitter handle for those posts to show here as well.

All of this is fairly easy from your profile. You've got three tabs, just click and populate. Not difficult, it'll take you 30 minutes maximum and that includes writing your profile!!


Now get to it. I would love to know if Active Rain blog feeds work on here. I use my own blog and have never tested Active Rain. Be the first to try it and let us all know.

Can't tell you how many times I've gone to for info on an Agent ... or to link to an Agent profile only to find nothing .. or nothing much there, Corinne Guest, Managing Broker.  It's an opportunity overlooked by too many, but you may have changed that with your tutorial ...

It sounds like a whole lot of agents are paying and not getting much benefit from it.

Thank you so much for this blog post. Tried to add my blog URL and it wasn't working property, so they created a case to fix whatever the problem is. While I was in my profile, I also fixed and updated a number of things. Would not have happened if not for this post !!!

Good morning, Corrine... what a great post. I have found that most agents really don't flesh out their profiles in various on-line portals to their detriment.
