New system offers free visibility and ranking for agents on the nation’s leading real estate portal viewed by more than 3.5 million home buyers each month
NORFOLK, Va., July 31, 2009 — Homes.com, a division of Dominion Enterprises, has launched free access for real estate agents to its improved Agent Directory, featuring a new Agent Endorsement System.
Previously available only to paid subscribers, Homes.com’s new Agent Directory is a free service that allows agents to post their Agent Profile in up to five local coverage areas, ranking these profiles according to the number of buyer and seller endorsements received by the agent. Agents can request endorsements via e-mail and can pre-approve all recommendations before posting.
“This is an opportunity for each agent to demonstrate his or her commitment to client satisfaction through the words of the buyer and seller,” says Jason Doyle, Homes.com vice president and general manager. “With our monthly traffic increasing, it’s the perfect time for home buyers and sellers to start endorsing their real estate agents on Homes.com.”
Agent Profiles are easily accessible to home buyers by clicking “Find an Agent” on the Homes.com home page. The updated Agent Search links directly to an individual agent’s directory profile.
Agents not currently listed in the directory now have the ability to create a new Agent Profile by visiting the MyHomes Sign Up Page on Homes.com. The improved Agent Profile features the agent’s endorsements along with the agent’s contact information, a link to the agent’s Web site, and links to an endorsement form and a contact form. A “Click to Call” phone link appears on the Agent Profile of Homes.com Premier-level subscribers.
