National Association of Realtors Builds Marketing and Creative Capabilities
New vice presidents to lead the organization’s communications and marketing strategies WASHINGTON (March 5, 2019) – The National Association of Realtors® announced today two new additions to a newly integrated marketing communications team to increase member engagement and satisfaction and enhance NAR's relationship with consumers. Effective March 5, Mantill Williams will become NAR's vice president of PR and communication strategy, and Susan Welter will become NAR's vice president of creative and content strategy. Both will report to Victoria Gillespie, NAR chief marketing and communications officer. "Mantill and Susan bring more than 40 years' combined experience developing and executing major marketing and communications campaigns both within the real estate industry and for other professional associations," said Bob Goldberg, CEO of NAR. "They will elevate member communications and help us tell more creative and compelling stories about Realtors® and property owners." With more than 20 years of public and media relations outreach, speechwriting and advocacy communications experience, Williams will develop strategic communications campaigns for NAR. His public and media relations strategies have garnered extensive news coverage in top tier media. Prior to joining NAR, Williams served as director of advocacy communications for the American Public Transportation Association, leading the public transit industry's national advocacy program. He also previously led communications teams for the largest membership association, AAA. "I am thrilled to begin this new role at NAR using my previous association experience to enhance the ways in which we reach and connect with our current and prospective members," said Williams. "I look forward to promoting the value and services offered to our members and advancing NAR's position as the leading voice in the real estate industry." Welter joins NAR with the unique perspective of having worked alongside the REALTOR® Magazine, Expo, and REALTOR Benefits® Program teams as a partner for more than six years. Throughout her 25-year career in publishing and marketing, she has held prominent roles in every aspect of print, digital, video communications, and events. She has enjoyed over a decade of success working with more than 50 regional, national, and international associations helping them enhance their communications and grow non-dues revenue. Most recently, Welter consulted with associations to develop multimedia content strategies and implement cross-organizational programs designed to increase member acquisition, engagement and retention. "Having served the association market for most of my career, I'm excited to put that collective experience to use at NAR to better engage with our members and deepen our relationships with our industry partners, providing an exceptional experience for all," said Welter. The National Association of Realtors® is America's largest trade association, representing more than 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Marketing and Innovation Executive Joins Showcase IDX as Chief Marketing Officer
Kurt Uhlir Joins Showcase IDX to Help Fuel Rapid Growth and Drive Innovation Atlanta, GA -- Showcase IDX, the leading real estate search and consumer engagement platform, has tapped Kurt Uhlir as its new Chief Marketing Officer (CMO). Based in Atlanta, Uhlir will lead all brand, marketing, strategy, and communication programs aimed to help Showcase IDX achieve accelerated growth, secure new partnerships, and drive innovation. With more than fifteen years of experience with high-growth technology companies, Uhlir served most recently as Managing Partner with Ethereal Innovations, a boutique marketing agency responsible for leading marketing for numerous high-growth B2B technology companies over the past five years. He previously served as CEO and co-founder at Sideqik, one of the first influencer marketing platforms, and as the COO for The Made in America Movement, which represents 20,000 American-based companies. Earlier in his career, Uhlir was on the front lines at HERE where they formed the location-based and spatial data industries that we know today. "It's clear that Kurt is a master of his craft and has a proven track record growing and driving marketing performance for some of the fastest growing companies around," said Scott Lockhart, CEO at Showcase IDX. "His experience working with high-growth SaaS businesses is a strategic fit for Showcase IDX as we continue to help the 1.3 million real estate professionals in the United States. And as an experienced CMO, he is intimately familiar with the challenges that real estate agents and marketers face to deliver digital experiences that meet ever-rising customer expectations." "It is an honor to join an innovative company like Showcase IDX, especially given their market, customer, and partner focus as well as an inspiring company culture," said Kurt Uhlir, CMO at Showcase IDX. "I look forward to continuing Showcase IDX's momentum of building loyalty with our existing customers and engaging with new customers for future growth." Uhlir believes real estate agents and brokers need to change the narrative and improve how they share their unique value proposition in order to be more successful, considering the experience many buyers and sellers expect when working with an agent. He believes agents, teams, and brokers must be able to deliver exceptional experiences through their websites that position them as local experts that can help solve customer challenges when buying or selling a home. "Our purpose is to activate the authentic storyteller in all of us," adds Uhlir. "The best agents rely more on human connection than automation. More on teaching and serving than technology. At the same time, technology plays a more valuable role than ever in assisting great real estate agents to engage and builder stronger relationships with even more customers and with less effort than ever before. I'm excited about being a part of a leadership team and company that's doing this better than anyone else in the market today." Showcase IDX raised a round of investment from a private equity source in October of last year, after having been self-funded and growing through increasing revenues for over 12 years. They have relocated to an expanded office in Atlanta's Inman Park neighborhood. About Showcase IDX Showcase IDX is the leading real estate search and consumer engagement platform, helping agents, teams and brokers generate leads, improve their websites, and stand out. The cloud-based offering integrates with residential property listings and numerous local data sources from around the country to give real estate professionals the tools they need to drive more traffic, conversions, and revenue.

BrokerSumo's Simplified Commission Management Platform Helps Brokers and Teams Retain Top Agents
Teams and Small Brokers Manage Productivity and Pay SACRAMENTO, CA--(Aug. 1, 2017) - BrokerSumo, a leading back office, commission management and accounting platform for real estate brokerages and agent teams, is helping smaller brokers and real estate teams compete successfully for top producers by simplifying the management of commissions to make sure they are paid accurately and promptly. As real estate agents change firms faster than ever, keeping accurate and current commission data has required spreadsheets and manual calculations, and even the largest agencies with IT staff and full-time accounting support struggle to keep agents happy. Small, independent brokers and real estate teams have been at a competitive disadvantage for attracting and keeping top talent until the launch of BrokerSumo last October. BrokerSumo's integrated platform avoids double entry and minimizes errors from manually re-entering information. BrokerSumo integrates with like dot loop, SkySlope, and accounting software like QuickBooks, allowing brokers and agents who use these programs to sync their transaction data seamlessly. It even takes care of the details, like managing escrow accounts, paying commissions electronically and onboarding new agents. No longer do brokers and agents need to struggle with programs that don't work together, manually re-enter data, or pay for software they don't know how to us. Custom Commission Plans Track Productivity and Pay Agents By managing commissions selectively, small brokerages and teams using BrokerSumo can analyze the productivity of agents and brokers and motivate them individually. Productivity can vary greatly. Last year, for example, less than 20 percent of all Realtors produced more than $5 million in annual sales each while 28 percent of all Realtors delivered sales totaling $500,000 or less last year. BrokerSumo creates custom commission plans for every agent and automatically calculates the agent's commission split for each transaction It tracks all credits and debits, charging agents credit cards for their monthly fees directly from the system. In addition to tracking agent and office sales performance from transaction data, BrokerSumo can also track agents' personnel records and store all of their critical documents such as their real estate license, insurance card, and driver's license. Agent billing invoices and payments sync automatically every time an invoice is sent. "I can monitor agent productivity every day. BrokerSumo makes it so easy to get a snapshot of how people," says Paul Knighton, President and Managing Broker of MORE Realty in Portland, OR. A BrokerSumor customer since February, Knighton is impressed by the platform's simplicity. "It's like a plug-and-play applications." Tailored for Mezzanine and Independent Brokers No other tool is designed specifically to manage and compensate real estate professionals based on their models, which makes BrokerSumo a perfect answer for mezzanine and large independent brokers that want to save money on back office personnel costs. Luis Gonzalez, Employing Broker, and Principal Broker at Brokers' Guild in Colorado Springs, Colorado's premier independent real estate brokerage firm with more than 900 brokers and agents, found the "old school" alternative of manual bookkeeping and spreadsheets too expensive. "In the Denver market alone we are doing 300 closings a month. BrokerSumo is so simple to use and to navigate that we can track income, commissions, and expenses on a year to date basis and monitor the effectiveness of agents every day," said Gonzalez. BrokerSumo not only relieves the back-office burden for brokerages and teams, but it also shows them how to become more successful by tracking performance and profitability. It is a powerful, affordable and easy-to-use set of tools designed to give independent real estate brokerages and agent teams exactly what they need. "BrokerSumo saves users tens of thousands of dollars every year in time saved and accuracy, but it is paying off in other ways. It makes smaller, independent agencies more attractive to top-selling agents by providing them back-office support that is equal or superior to the largest brokerages. Equally important, it tracks agent performance with profitability to identify opportunities that maximize commissions and reward achievers," said Jeremy Shoenig, founder of BrokerSumo. About BrokerSumo BrokerSumo is a back office, commission management and accounting solution for real estate brokerages and agent teams. It enables brokers to manage their agent's information, track transactions and commission dollars, automatically calculate commission splits, create commission disbursements, bill agents for monthly fees, pay agents their commissions electronically, report on agent and office performance and sync financial data to QuickBooks.

Real Estate Leaders Identify Pivotal Business Challenges for 2017
January 16, 2017 – Bellevue, WA – As they grow less confident in the economy, top real estate executives at firms of all sizes find themselves united by a key concern for 2017: Agent recruitment and retention. In the latest Imprev Thought Leader survey, 85% of participants agree that recruiting more agents is their most critical business challenge. The challenge continues when it comes to reaching younger agents; over 52% ranked "attracting younger agents" among their top concerns. A broker owner of a major franchise office in Minnesota gives depth to his recruiting worries: "Recruiting is and always has been our biggest challenge. While we continue to grow, it's never at the pace we want it to be. While recruiting younger, less-experienced agents has improved for us this year, we've noticed increased difficulty in recruiting the top talent." Many boutique firms are also worried about the competition for talent. In Southern California, a leader of a smaller brokerage laments that her top recruiting challenge is "being able to offer agents alternative motivation to stay or join our firm. We are a family-run boutique business and cannot compete with the money of the heavily-backed firms." Agent productivity is also top of mind for the top real estate executives and broker owners surveyed. 44% of participants rank "getting agents to use broker-provided technology" as their next critical business concern—beating out lead generation (34%) and lead follow-up (36%). A broker owner in California struggles to get "user adoption of tools that will help agents communicate with their clients," while a Dallas-area broker owner says, "We feel confident in our technology we have in place; we need to continue to teach and train for this technology." When it comes to technology, leaders face a myriad of challenges. More than half of survey respondents rank "getting our systems to work together" as their most critical technology challenge for 2017. It's a struggle to have "technology that is cohesive," says a broker owner at a top Southwestern Florida brokerage. Better technology integration isn't their only worry. Leaders said having "systems for more effectively competing against the RE portals for generating leads" (44%) and "increasing mobile capabilities for agents" (36%) are their next pressing concerns. A Houston, Texas broker running a major franchise office shares his goal of seeing "seamless integration of the transaction, from agent to corporate to closing, and simplified use of mobile devices to enter all data across the company," while the leader of smaller Florida brokerage notes her battle is to "stay on top of technology to compete with bigger brokers." "Real estate leaders clearly believe that the technology they provide to their agents is widely underused," says Renwick Congdon, Chief Executive Officer of Imprev. "So how does the industry begin to improve agent adoption? By reducing complexity. Systems need to seamlessly fit into the agent's business and process. Integrated and connected platforms—rather than 'apps' and standalone solutions—are imperative to successfully compete with the portals." Beautifully summing up the struggle to stay relevant in an ever-growing competitive landscape, a broker owner of a large franchise office in Nevada says her top concern is "ensuring we remain relevant to our agents and that we are leading them toward the future, rather than having the future 'happen' and we weren't prepared." The annual Imprev Thought Leader Real Estate Confidence study, one of the most comprehensive in real estate, was created in 2012 by Imprev to provide insight on key business challenges top executives and broker owners face, encouraging an exchange of ideas and solutions among industry thought leaders. This latest study was conducted from October 18 to November 1, 2016, polling nearly 240 real estate leaders who represent brokerages responsible for more than half of all U.S. residential real estate transactions last year. 26% represent firms with 100 agents or fewer; 42% represent firms with 101 to 500 agents; 17% represent firms with 501 to 1,000 agents; and 15% of the respondents represented firms with more than 1,000 agents. Survey demographics show 31% of participants are female and 69% are male. More than one-third are 61 years old or older, 32% are ages 51 to 60, 23% are ages 41 to 50, 8% are ages 31 to 40, and 1% are under the age of 30.

Real Estate Brokers: Contactually's research suggests that successful recruiting requires first addressing three key issues

New real estate recruiting and retention tool for brokers
  What would you do if a thousand people asked you for the same thing? That's what happened to us here at Adwerx. Nearly a thousand real estate brokers asked us for help with a specific part of their business: recruiting. It wasn't surprising once we looked at the data. According to NAR's 2016 report, one-third of real estate agents started at a new firm last year — that's up by 67% from the year before. And the success of a brokerage is absolutely dependent on the agents. That's why NAR also reports that 44% of brokers are actively recruiting right now. Finally, a tool that makes real estate recruiting simple. We looked at our automated digital ad platform and saw a unique opportunity to help. That's how we came to develop our newest tool, Digital Ads for Recruiting. Now brokers can create a list of the exact agents they want to recruit. Maybe these are the top producers in the area. Or maybe they're new agents entering the market. Either way, they're the exact agents the broker wants to work with. Next, the brokers upload an ad with the messaging that best captures why the agency is the right place for their talents. Then Adwerx finds those agents where they are online, across thousands of premium web sites, on Facebook, and on mobile devices. "These targeted ads make it more likely the agents I want to work with will answer when I call," said broker Tiffany Kjellander of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate PorchLight Properties in New Jersey. And she's right: data from Officevibe shows that candidates with brand exposure are twice as likely to respond. Do you want to work with just any agent? Top Florida broker Samantha DeBianchi is building up her team and knows exactly the kind of agent she wants. "I don't just need agents on my team," she said. "I'm looking for superstars." But here's the challenge: recruiting the right agents takes time and effort. Many real estate brokers hold networking events. They buy print ads and do direct mail. All to build up that broker brand awareness with local agents in hopes of enticing them to make a move. And all the while running a busy real estate business. But do you know where most agents are, when not working directly with a client? They're online. And their mobile devices are never far. You're hiring, but so are they. There's a flip side to all this recruiting. Because all the while you're looking to lure away top agents, someone else is trying to lure yours. So the same tool that helps you recruit can help you retain your best agents as well. "My agents need to know how much they mean to the brokerage's success," said Joe Schutt of UNIT Realty Group in Boston. A retention campaign can remind real estate agents their broker is still their biggest fan. It reinforces that loyalty for agents who, in turn, can become evangelists for their broker. Recruiting will always be a top priority for brokers. But hopefully, with digital ads, it can be more about the right message to the right agents at the right time.

The brokerage chose the SentriLock System to provide its home selling clients with increased security, showing reports, access control, and peace of mind previously unavailable with single-combination style lockboxes. “The integration from mechanical lockboxes to high-security SentriLock lockboxes went smoothly and was well-received by our Sales Representatives and staff. At the initial introduction, the SentriLock team did an excellent job introducing the product and presenting hands-on training for our entire company. They have always been quick to answer our questions and solve any issues; we couldn’t ask for a more professional or efficient company to work with. We made the right decision to work with SentriLock,” states David Pearce, Owner and Broker, Re/Max Rouge River Realty. To streamline showing scheduling and reporting processes for Re/Max Rouge River Realty, SentriLock also integrated their access system with Lone Wolf’s front-office software.

The streamlining into one familiar system reduces training requirements, saves time, and makes brokers, sales representatives, and office administrators more efficient and proficient.
