Sometimes, we need to leave something to see how valuable it truly is. 

Craig Schneider is the owner of Norchar Real Estate, a Rochester-based real estate brokerage firm. A user of the Real Geeks platform, he talks about his struggles with taking his real estate business online. He also goes into how he tried other CRM platforms only to return to Real Geeks after realizing that it was the platform that offered the most for his business. 

Read on to learn what led Craig Schneider from and back to Real Geeks and how it can help your real estate business!

Why Real Geeks?

Craig Schneider is an engineer by profession, gifted with expertise and acumen for all things tech-related. Nonetheless, for him, one of the most challenging areas in his real estate business is web development. 

The necessity for lead generation and distribution that comes with a CRM platform is what led him to try Real Geeks. He ended up becoming a user of the real estate CRM platform for quite some time.   

Throughout his initial experience with Real Geeks, he gained marketing tools for lead generation. With his investment in the platform, he also got multiple integrations, few of which he learned to use initially.

Craig’s Departure From Real Geeks

Despite what Real Geeks was able to do for his business, he confessed to trying other platforms after noticing a couple of pain points. 

Lead distribution had always been an issue at Norchar Real Estate. Due to management constraints, the Round Robin lead distribution feature of the platform did not deliver what Craig needed. This forced him and his wife to try lead shifting as an alternative method of lead distribution, only to abandon it after some time. 

Keen on using Slack for his lead distribution, Craig had wanted to integrate his Real Geeks page with it for his agents. While the integration was possible in Real Geeks, he was not able to figure it out. 

On top of the issues surrounding the Slack integration, he also had a problem integrating data from his MLS to the platform. This combination was what caused Craig to try out other platforms. 

The Return to Real Geeks

Craig tried several platforms on the understanding that he would have full backend access to adjust his pages and make the integrations he desired. Unfortunately, these platforms did not deliver on his expectations despite benefiting him in a handful of ways. 

Coming back to Real Geeks, he discovered a new array of features he did not know about before he tried other platforms. By spending a bit more time on the platform, he was able to finally integrate Slack to suit his “Shark Tank” lead distribution technique. 

His Slack integration has now allowed leads to funnel from his real estate site into Slack for his team of agents to pick up. This single integration alone has done much to streamline Craig’s lead distribution.  

Real Geeks Is Your All-In-One Real Estate CRM Platform

In Craig Schneider’s words: 

“Real Geeks is the best investment I have in my business in the sense of how much I pay and how much value I get.”

Real Geeks delivers most of the results Craig needs for his real estate business. It’s why he returned as a user of the platform and continues to use it as we speak.

Discovery Phase

The discovery phase is meant to determine whether or not the agents being recruited are the right fit for their real estate team while providing the necessary details for the agents to know what their team is about. Sascha first discusses their team goals and strategies to ensure agents know exactly what they're walking into. He also discusses other matters, such as expectations from the agents themselves and their commissions.

The discovery phase may be one of the most important parts of knowing how to equip your real estate team for success. In order to succeed, you need to have a reliable workforce on your side that shares the same goals and is willing to cooperate with the rest of the team to move forward. Having a compatible and efficient team is one of the best resources you can have in real estate, as it can significantly affect your business' productivity.

Agent Utility Belt

This is the highlight of the entire video. Sascha compares his utility belt of resources to Batman's belt of tools and trinkets. This belt essentially exists to store all resources and keep them within reach. Don't get the wrong idea, though. It's not an actual belt. Instead, it is usually a cloud or a compilation of all your valuable resources, such as videos, links, and other agent tools. Having a utility belt that is curated specifically for your team and your needs could help increase the productivity of your workflow because you won't have to scavenge for resources when you need them.

Not only does it make you more productive within your workplace, but it also gives off the sense that you are reliable and organized. When clients ask for something, you will easily have it within reach. 

Clients understandably have many questions before closing the deal, so one of the best ways to answer them is to grab a resource from your utility belt. For example, you're talking to a client about title insurance. Instead of answering their questions yourself, you could take an informative video from your utility belt and ask them to watch it. This makes it easier to understand and relate to.

Having a utility belt is a great way to equip your real estate team for success. It also comes in useful during business transactions. All in all, it's one of the best resources that a real estate team can have.
