You and Building Bridge: The Keys to Real Estate Success
Whether you are an independent realtor, a small team of agents, or a large brokerage firm, you cannot afford to spend your time minding the details that take you away from serving your clients. Our four pillars provide you with the clerical and administrative tools necessary to lay the foundation for service-based success. With Building Bridge as part of your team, you will communicate quickly, collaborate easily, and most importantly effectively transform leads into clients, and clients into sales.
Turn Your SmartPhone Into Your Office Anywhere
Being in the real estate business means spending more time on-site than in the office. Constant mobility, not to mention scheduling flexibility, are uncompromisable traits for independent realtors and real estate teams alike. Our internet telephony solutions turn your computer, tablet or smartphone into your mobile communications hub without missing a call or skipping a beat.
Forward your office phone to your smartphone so you can take business calls in meetings and in the field. This means your office phone system is no longer locked into a physical location, but instead becomes as mobile and flexible as you are.
Integrate your email, instant messaging (IM) and video chat. You are able to instantly receive voice-to-text messages, and then respond to them on any whichever device you happen to be closest to at the moment.
Send clients geographic coordinates they can use as directions to easily find the property you are showing. The coordinates you send instantly turn into directions via Google Maps so clients can know where to meet you, or how to find their way to the property safely and easily.
Your email system also can save and file your incoming or outgoing calls, messages or emails, which means you can find any record by performing a simple search from any connected device. In this way, you remain in complete control over your communications system whether you are down the street from your office, across town, or even out of state.
Digital Collaboration Tools You Control
The days of inefficient document management systems are as outdated as asbestos. With our digital collaboration tools, you can easily access documents, files and images from your computer, tablet or smartphone. This allows you to coordinate with builders, agents or any other industry professional securely in live-time.
Share calendars with important dates, times and events. With shared calendars, you can coordinate with builders, team members or clients so that deadlines remain in tact and successfully met.
Instantly upload property images to the cloud server. You can even set automatic upload settings so photos are instantly routed to the appropriate storage file for easy accessibility during inspections and walkthroughs.
Immediately grant or rescind permission to all data. You remain in constant control over who sees what files, including whether they are able to view, comment or edit them.
Think for a moment about the convenience of being able to file inspection dates along with property images, and financial paperwork along with the due dates for payments received. With an integrated cloud storage system, thinking becomes doing at a moment’s notice. What is more, both can be just as easily undone and redone in only a moment more. .
An Interactive Property Showcase
In the modern real estate industry, having an engaging, interactive virtual showcase for your properties is essential to getting the right clients. Our web development solutions provide responsive, attractive websites that integrate, and allow you to control, some of the most important tools of the real estate trade, including:
A fully compatible IDX software system. With our customized IDX software, you can add supplemental information like school district or neighborhood statistics, in addition to interfacing with all available homes-for-sale in your area directly via your website.
An automated database management system. The digital database management system ties into landing pages that automatically collect data that is then sorted, filed, and even followed up so that your staff can spend its time making sales.
Search engine optimized (SEO) listing content. We prime your site for organic searchability with Google by creating keyword specific metadata, content, and IDX property listings that enhance search engine rankings on the other major search engines.
You can even create extensive lead generating databases from the information your visitors enter when viewing specific properties. This way, you can track, record, and thus predict their wants or needs, which helps you expedite the home-buying process for them. The result is a website that works for you 24/7/365 by enticing your visitors to become leads, then engaging those leads to become clients.
Publicizing Your Real Estate Portfolio
With all of the competition in the real estate industry, separating yourself from the crowd is essential for attracting the right clients, as well as building their trust. High quality targeted real estate marketing gets your business out to the leads that want what you offer, by establishing a meaningful client connection before you ever meet. Our strategic real estate marketing solutions include:
Email marketing campaigns (also known as ‘blasts’). Blasts are great for advertising new listings to realtors and clients who will be interested in your properties. Blast lists can be sourced from the visitor and client information your database management system gathers.
Google AdWords and AdSense pay-per-click (PPC) ads. Paid ads are perfect for helping increase visitor traffic to your website. We create your ads with keywords that strategically target industry specific search terms or phrases, and your specific geographic location.
Blogs with hot listings and helpful information. Blogs are the perfect way to provide the public-at-large with hot property specials, as well as anecdotal information that adds tangible value to their lives and thus, builds consumer trust while showcasing your expertise at the same time.
You can also take advantage of our reputation management services that monitor your client reviews, and social media feedback, to make sure your public image remains an accurate representation of your outstanding dedication to customer satisfaction. With all your real estate marketing bases covered, you can focus your undivided attention on serving your clients by selling them the homes they want.
