Much has changed in the real Estate industry over the past decade, with companies modifying everything from their offices and operations to the tools they use and their overall culture. Real estate companies have also changed the way they brand themselves in order to better target younger consumers looking for a more personalized buying or renting experience.
Traditionally, real estate companies have focused their branding on promoting awards and titles, such as being number one or becoming a top producer. Now, with generation X and Y part of the real estate market, things have changed. These younger markets don’t care much for titles and awards. While such new consumers are still passionate about becoming homeowners, they are looking for a wider range of services, coupled with online/mobile access to information.
Gone are the days when real estate agents could quickly and mechanically push clients through the sales funnel. Today, customers can easily switch companies, with no warning, and they expect the full package. They want someone who is going to support them, be knowledgeable, and, above all, is trustworthy from the moment they start searching for a home to the moment they finalize their transaction.
Moreover, customers are not the only ones whose needs have shifted. The requirements of real estate agents and brokers have also changed. Rather than needing an office, agents are more interested in quick availability of important resources. Advances in technology mean that they need instant access to a range of information to keep their clients satisfied, whether they are in an office or in the field.
Non-traditional offices are popping up, with agencies shifting toward smaller or, sometimes, no offices. In addition, they are now focusing solely on the consumer and using more “free” or inexpensive tools such as social media marketing applications, blogs, and search engine optimization (SEO) to reach the right audience.
