Do your Past Clients recommend you on Next Door?

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Metro Brokers - House to Home, Inc. - Denver Real Estate - 720-231-6373 DRE# ER40011786

 

I was very lucky to receive an email from a past client, and she said she had just done a write-up about me with a link to my web site referring me to the person asking for a REALTOR.    How sweet, and never thought of past clients doing reviews or recommendations on Next Door.   We have so many places for these type testimonials.

 

 

Our MLS now allows us to send our listings to Next Door, so that is just one more step to get in the door of neighborhoods we enjoy working in.    So if homeowners see our listings, then a rave review, this may get us in the door of our next listing!   

 

Has anyone done this?

Hi Joan... I'm registered on Next Door, but I don't believe we can put our listings there... and I'm not sure that I want to... I feel that as a neighbor on this sight, I'd rather make my mark with helpful rcommendations/comments that as someone who's there to drum up business. Although, I did have a client who posted a testimonial for me on Next Door... so far it's done nothing.

Nina Hollander I had not thought of this, and when I got this email, thought this was very sweet.   She just did it, so no calls yet.

Barbara, that does sound like it would be the responsibility of the individual agent.

Hi Joan, I have tried getting my listings on NextDoor myself. I think in our area it happens automatically - if I sponsor a zip code (as I do), then NextDoor pulls my listings from MLS for that area. It seems to be a good tool.

That is very cool and I don't know if any of my clients have given me a testimonial on NextDoor, I don't really pay attention to that site.

I haven't really paid that much attention to it. It is sweet that your client would feel motivated to give you a testimonial on the site. I'm sure it can't hurt. :)

Debb, like you, don't pay attention to it either, but know recently our MLS added this site.  It was sweet of my client to do that.  Sent her a very nice thank you.

Although I am signed up on Next Door, I eventually quit because some of my neighbors are racists and really quite evil. I don't want to know that much about any of them. I've heard others in other parts of the country complain about that website. There is something about bringing neighbors together in an environment where they normally would not exist that breeds this crap. So I don't want any part of it.

I direct my reviews to places where buyers and sellers expect to find them.

Nextdoor is a very important site for recommendations. I regularly make recommendations.

Hi Joan - I joined NextDoor but have not done anything beyond some reading.  Very insightful and interesting but not a referral vehicle for me. Thanks for sharing your story.

Hi Joan.  I have not looked into NextDoor, but will see if I can use it to my advantage.
