Do your Past Clients recommend you on Next Door?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Metro Brokers - House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373 DRE# ER40011786

 

I was very lucky to receive an email from a past client, and she said she had just done a write-up about me with a link to my web site referring me to the person asking for a REALTOR.    How sweet, and never thought of past clients doing reviews or recommendations on Next Door.   We have so many places for these type testimonials.

 

 

Our MLS now allows us to send our listings to Next Door, so that is just one more step to get in the door of neighborhoods we enjoy working in.    So if homeowners see our listings, then a rave review, this may get us in the door of our next listing!   

 

Has anyone done this?

Hi Joan, I have tried getting my listings on NextDoor myself. I think in our area it happens automatically - if I sponsor a zip code (as I do), then NextDoor pulls my listings from MLS for that area. It seems to be a good tool.

That is very cool and I don't know if any of my clients have given me a testimonial on NextDoor, I don't really pay attention to that site.

I haven't really paid that much attention to it. It is sweet that your client would feel motivated to give you a testimonial on the site. I'm sure it can't hurt. :)

Brian England I did sign up for my neighborhood, but got so many emails, I opted out.

Debb, like you, don't pay attention to it either, but know recently our MLS added this site.  It was sweet of my client to do that.  Sent her a very nice thank you.

Although I am signed up on Next Door, I eventually quit because some of my neighbors are racists and really quite evil. I don't want to know that much about any of them. I've heard others in other parts of the country complain about that website. There is something about bringing neighbors together in an environment where they normally would not exist that breeds this crap. So I don't want any part of it.

I direct my reviews to places where buyers and sellers expect to find them.

Nextdoor is a very important site for recommendations. I regularly make recommendations.

Good afternoon Joan - it is certainly a good idea for agents to use this.

Hi Joan - I joined NextDoor but have not done anything beyond some reading.  Very insightful and interesting but not a referral vehicle for me. Thanks for sharing your story.

Hi Joan.  I have not looked into NextDoor, but will see if I can use it to my advantage.

Elizabeth, I too have focused my efforts on other sites, as Next Door had WAY too many emails.

I sponsor a couple of zip codes in my area, and would be interested in connecting with other real estate brokers/agents that are Nextdoor Neighborhood Sponsors. I'd like to share best practices, and Nextdoor doesn't seem to have a framwork for that, or a way for agents in various areas to connect. If you're interested, reach out to me via email (in my profile) or through my Facebook page

I have been a lead for my own neighborhood for years.  I just closed on a lead that I got late last year from nextdoor.  A lot of local realtors are already sponsoring my neighborhood and plenty of members are constantly sending "I'm" the best realtor posts, etc.  

I have posted my town's stats for years - sometimes monthly others quarterly.  I never made it about myself...or my company...there are so many realtors I think people get tired of the self-promotion and now that its "paid" sponsorship they will get immuned to it.   

 

Hopefully, they will remember that I was the 1st and never was "pushing" the fact that I sold homes and just gave them information on the community and I will get other leads.

Evelyn Santiago, Managing Broker Heart Realty Group, Inc. sounds like you are doing it right.  I joined again, and again started getting WAY too many emails daily.  I think yesterday there was 7 just from Next Door, and most are from outside my immediate neighborhood.
