How to get a Realtor.com email address!

Lynn Friedman called me this morning to ask for my email address, and I gave her rpbrown@realtor.com.  I guess the realtor.com email address was impressive, because she asked how I got it that email.

I got my Realtor.com email forwarding address many years ago, and I use it for marketing materials and online postings.  I don't want to put my "real" email address online or in marketing materials because I get way too much spam already!

I told Lynn that she could get a realtor.com email address also and it's very simple.  I told her I would post instructions here on AR for her and our fellow colleagues. It's great because once you give your email address, EVERYONE instantly knows what career you have!  There's no guessing because the domain name speaks for itself.

ALERT:  Did you know that you also can get a Realtor.com email?  And did you know that it's FREE?!?

This is an email FORWARDING address so you cannot send outgoing emails from this address.  However, it's great for incoming emails because it filters out (some) spam and then sends directly to your regular email.

Want the recognition and prestige of a branded email address that's much more professional than gmail, yahoo, or hotmail?  Take a moment to secure your own REALTOR.COM email address.

All you have to do is to call NAR customer support at (800) 878-4166 x 1 and ask for a REALTOR.COM email forwarding address.  You will need your NRDS membership # (or simply your name & company) and the customer care rep will set it up for you over the phone!  Now, how's that for easy.

In a privacy contious business, having one more email - and one more email list to be on - may be a "benefit" that is not necessary. Rltr .com hasn't been too forthright in the past. It seems to me that they are not part of the NAR, they only hold the license the site. Who knows what their real plans are for your email.

That's kind of cool. It could help a lot of folks with their branding. When people contact me or join my mailing lists, I am always surprised by the wide range of email addresses.

Heath, I've had my Realtor.com email address for about 10 years, it has served me very well.  It's been no-hassle, no maintenance, and helps to filter out unwanted spam.  And it has instant recognition and credibility!  AND there's no maintenance because it's simply a forwarding address.  How do ya like that!

Thanks everyone for stopping by to comment.

Melissa, I agree, and it's not just a wide range, it's also a lot of unprofessional email addresses.  For example, "ILoveToSellMaryKayCosmetics@gmail.com" and even worse.  It's no wonder that the public has a negative perception of real estate agents.  What other professional company lets their reps use whatever unprofessional email they want to?  Just look at how we view ourselves... and I know we can do better, friends!  Hence this handy-dandy little tip for you.  Okay, well enough ranting & raving for today...

FYI, with a Gmail or Google Apps account, I'd be willing to bet that you could set up your realtor.com email so you could receive and send from it. Here's the instructions if you want to try it...

Nic, you are probably right, it seems like everything is being filtered through Google nowadays...
