I began into the online lead generation arena with a group who used Tiger Leads.  When I started looking for my own solution, I looked at them as well for an IDX solution for my real estate business.  I quickly found that the users of this system are exclusive to one single area.  I was able to speak with a couple of users and discovered the costs were described as “big as a mortgage payment.”   I believe this is due in part to their reliance on pay-per-click for leads.  I knew my long-term objective was not to be stuck paying for leads forever.
 
The Sarasota Real Estate  market is made up in large part by second home owners and retirees.   A strong internet presence is essential to survive in this market as most buyers begin their search at home up north.   After I considered 11 different popular IDX solutions, and one failed start, I got the keys to my Real Geeks website in November of 2010.  I liked the look and feel of the other Real Geeks sites Jeff had me look at.  I also liked the idea that the developers of this system used their own platform in their own real estate business.  I had what I felt was custom work being done by Jeff and the programmers to accommodate my needs for my website.  Some of the work was tedious and took quite a bit of time.  I know they must have had other customers but it sure didn’t feel like it!
 
My website started from zero presence on the Internet to generating 867 leads in the first year.  The organic traffic picked up enough that we stopped using PPC for the most part in April.  I am in the process of bringing in agents to handle the surge of leads we have been getting over the past several months.  Yes, we are buried in leads and they just keep coming!
 
I highly recommend the Real Geeks platform to anyone wanting a generate quality leads.  Don’t just take my word for it, last week one customer commented that “Your website is one of the best out there by the way.”

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.
