Is Your Real Estate Agent's Website Secure to Use?

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE #00697006

Active Rainer and Los Angeles Realtor Jane Peters was instrumental in pushing me to get a SSL certificate for my website. It's been mentioned a lot in this forum but at first blush I didn't think I needed it. After all, I'm not taking credit card information or selling anything on my website other than the opportunity to be prepared to be amazed if you call me.

However, after reading up on where we are heading, I concluded Jane was on to something. I absolutly needed to secure my real estate website. All interaction with visitors such as emailing me their contact information should be secure. Just a few days after I installed the certificate, Chrome came out with its big announcment, which made me so glad I did it.

You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Use Only a Secured Sacramento Real Estate Website with a SSL Certificate.

I did that as well, Elizabeth Weintraub Sacramento Real Estate Agent, Top 1% of Lyon Agents and am so glad it's done! It really wasn't that difficult to do either. I was SO dreading it but, it was super easy!

Have a great weekend!

Elizabeth, I initially thought the same thing, but that is where we are going, and mine is in the works.
