What one piece of advice would you give to ambitious real estate agents looking to succeed?
Time is our most valuable resource. Great Realtors leverage technology to enable efficient use of their time and sphere of influence. Technology should not be substituted, but leveraged, for building and maintaining the relationships key to your success. Every conversation you have with a property owner or prospective buyer is an opportunity for a future relationship. Relationships turn into transactions, either directly or via referral.
What separates DriveBuyTech from competitors in your space?
The DriveBuy tech product allows flexibility and power no other vendor comes close to. Our dynamic pricing and customer focused support gives individual Realtors and teams an advantage in the market.
Real estate transactions in many markets are seasonal, so our pricing reflects that. Our customers only pay for the service if they’re using it. If an agent has no listings she can deactivate all her Ad Codes and not be billed at all. When new listings come up the Ad Codes can be reactivated for the new listings and billing will resume. Our customers love the opportunity to have the system available when they need it, yet not be billed for it when there’s not inventory.
Product flexibility with regard to where the prospect views the listing information on the web is also an advantage. We offer a mobile-optimized web platform for any customer who doesn’t have their own system available.
Many of our customer have invested heavily in their web platforms and want to drive traffic directly to those sites and we can do that as well.
