New service for 2015

We are pleased to announce a new service for estate agents. As from today we are launching a new service offering websites for a fraction of the price that most companies charge.

Our first website that is now available to buy covers everything an estate agent would need. As well as being an attractive fully responsive site that works on all platforms and tablets we’ve added our awesome sales and lettings management system, this allows for the day to day running of the business with viewings, offers, chains, uploads to portals, floor plan designer, staff management, vendor/landlord/tenant/viewer auto account creation and loads more.

We have 4 more sites being added next week, with our small team we are able to design and complete a website for sale every 2 days.

Costs, we know that when starting a new business money can be tight, our upfront fee for the website is just £500+vat, we are able to spread these cost over 12 months interest free, the monthly cost for the property management system is £50+vat for sales and £50+vat for lettings, if you need both then we charge £90+vat.

Here is the 1st website available to buy now: http://blog1.estateagent.me

Call Trevor 02392 637754 to discuss your new business.

 


Estate Agents with multiple branches

With our never ending quest to provide as much information for users we have finally completed multi branch grouping, we have also included a light blue highlighted box to add some extra information.

EstateAgent.me does not charge estate agents to group their branches, if you are an agency with multiple branches then please email us and we will group them, please email agents@estateagent.me

 

 


SEO for Estate Agents

We have been submitting our pages to google recently via our google webmasters account, this way after creating the page you can instantly tell google and it appears in the search results instantly. This is a great way of getting indexed immediately and also before anyone steals your content.

Getting top search results is not easy, it’s a long process and must be done correctly, just adding links on other sites will not help, how have you got your site listed on google high in the results? I know some agents that are spending in excess of over £2000 a month on SEO, don’t you think though that google can recognise the impact of this spend and may find it cheating?

Estate Agents Directory is what we are currently targeting.

So, join in the conversation, how is you SEO going? Do you use an external company or in house?


Estate Agent Directory

For the last few days I have been slowly working through postcode areas updating and adding estate agents phone numbers to their accounts. When this is done all agents are emailed a login link, they can then access their account for 7 days to update a new logo or change any info we have stored for them.

When logged in agents can also upload their associated logos.

All of GL postcodes have been completed, I am halfway through GU.

It’s a big job but having an up to date directory is very important, if you would like to link to the directory or your listing then please email trevor@estateagent.me

Thank you.

So, let’s see how it goes. Also grouped some agents together, making a better user experience.


Review Your Estate Agent

EstateAgent.me offers vendors, landlords, tenants, viewers, buyers etc the chance to provide feedback online for the agent. If you have had a good experience or a bad experience tell them about it, all reviews are sent for moderation by our team and once approved (Mainly language!), are forwarded to the estate agent and then live on our website.

You can provide feedback for the estate agent and for a property you have viewed. If you are giving bad feedback then please make sure to include full details, what went wrong, dates, time etc, we will not approve reviews for estate agents that just say ‘Rubbish, stay well away!’. They need facts then they can answer online.

To provide a review for an estate agent simply locate them via our UK Estate Agent Directory ON each agents page there is a ‘WRITE YOUR REVIEW’ button under the estate agent logo.

SSL Certificate issued for EstateAgent.me

EstateAgent.me is now a secure site for our agents and visitors, although it was before this makes the site safer for online transactions. There is alot of work involved in this upgrade, the site had to come offline while a static ip address was assigned.

The site is now 100% working and can be found at https://estateagent.me

We are now submitting everything to google.


Property Photographs Portsmouth Estate Agents

If you require quality photographs for your property in the PO or SO area then estateagent.me can help. We have a few representatives with quality camera equipment and expertise that can really make your property stand out.

Please contact Trevor 07718 203909 or email trevor@estateagent.me

Many time when you search Rightmove or Zoopla you see photographs that are below par, often out of focus, too dark, blazing sunlight coming through the window (Rare we know) or in some instances photos of just a bed.

What price should you be paying for quality photographs for your property?
We charge from £99+vat, this covers the following:

Home visit by a friendly and professional representative.
Up to 20 high quality wide angled photographs.
Emailed to you and your estate agent in large format.
Emailed to your agent in the perfect size to upload to Righmtove and Zoopla.

These are your photos so if you appoint another agent they can use the photos.

For quality property photographs in Portsmouth or Southampton from £99+vat call Trevor 07718203909.

OnTheMarket Logo added to Estate Agent’s Directory

otm

 

 
We have now added the OnTheMarket logo to EstateAgent.me.

We want this portal to be a massive success and will do everything we can to help. With the ever increasing  fees that Rightmove and Zoopla charge estate agents it’s about time the agents took control and had their own website, after all they supply the stock to feed these websites.

If you would like to add the logo to your directory listing page for free then please find your listing on estateagent.me and click on ‘YOUR AGENCY?’ and complete the small form and we will activate the account, you can also add more logos to your listing.

The first Estate Agency to show the OTM logo is Steve Morris, Birmingham.

http://estateagent.me/estate-agents/sutton-coldfield/steve-morris-43778

The logo is currently under the map with Rightmove, Zoopla and PrimeLocation, however if enough agents include the logo on their listing we may make the logo larger and position under the agents address, its up you folks!
