Revamping your Real Estate WebsiteAre you looking at revamping your Real Estate website? You might be thinking “No…why would I?”  Well lets start with a few questions.  What platform are you using for your site?  How many people a month do you get to your site?  Do you pay a monthly fee?  Where do you rank on Google for your content?  Do you have any good content?  Is your IDX and “indexable IDX “or no?  Is this a company site or do you own it?  Have your converted any online leads from you site to a paying customer?

Stewart Title Makes Forbes Top 50 Most Trustworthy Companies List

Forbes LogoNormally I don’t talk a lot on this website about Title Insurance or even Stewart Title…but today I am.  A couple of days ago Stewart Title was named to the Forbes List of Top 50 Most Trustworthy Companies in 2014.  This is a HUGE honor as a National Title Insurance Company, but even bigger because we were the ONLY Title Company on the list!  I think that is important because as a Real Estate agent or Mortgage Lender you have a lot of options as to whom you choose to do business.  In many instances Real Estate agents don’t realize that the company they do business with doesn’t actually underwrite or issue a Title Policy…some other company does.  Stewart Title, as an underwriter and insurance company does both.  So here are more reasons you should consider putting us into your next contract.

Facebook Business Page for Real Estate-Should I Get One?

Facebook Business Page for Real EstateThe Facebook Business page…remember when EVERYONE had one because it was the thing to do? Every Real Estate agent I knew thought that as soon as they put together their FREE business page it was going to be just like having an awesome website that was going to bring in leads, and people from all over would be searching through Facebook for them and their services.  Well…that is not really how it all worked out.  As I meet with Realtors and Lenders throughout Northern Virginia and Washington DC I get asked all time if putting together a Facebook Page for Real Estate is worth it…and should they do it?  The answer is not exactly black and white but I can offer some positives and negatives and you decide for yourself.
