RE/MAX Life chose WordPress Premier and the Curie Kit for their office website, and the result is a website that's both gorgeous and functional, and all without requiring complex input on their part. Their beautiful photo inspired an equally beautiful color scheme that's inviting to customers, and their homepage also exposes users to no shortage of useful content within the site. WordPress Premier is the perfect choice for offices who need an excellent website, without needless hassles. See WordPress Premier plans & pricing.
One major benefit of a WordPress Premier website is your ability to create and display easy-to-use community searches that help your visitors search quickly for properties by area or type.
You may have noticed that many sites have an area for displaying searches that looks like this:
This is called the Explore Places to Live widget, and it is populated with SEO searches.
If you do not have one already on your homepage and would like one, the process is pretty simple:
1. Identify up to 12 SEO searches that you would like to feature. You should see your existing searches listed out on your Explore Places to Live page, found in your menu at the top of your website.
If you do not see an Explore Places to Live page in your menu, you probably do not have any SEO searches. In this case, you'll need to start by creating some with SEO Presto. Be sure to pay close attention to our tips on how to name your searches.
2. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request that we add the Explore Places to Live widget to your homepage. Be sure to list out your 12 searches.
Note: The widget uses a featured image for each search. If you do not provide us with your own images, we'll use stock photos of our choosing.
There are many sources available for finding images to use on your site. Unsplash and Pexels are great sources of free images, and there are always paid sites like Shutterstock and iStock. You are also welcome to choose images from our gallery. Whatever you submit should be usable at dimensions of 300 pixels by 200 pixels.
We are upgrading the Online Seller Report. The new report will be made available in the CRM the afternoon on November 8th with the first automated email sent on November 13th. All existing Online Seller Reports will migrate to the new version. In addition, we have made the following improvements:
Agents can enter partial contact information when searching and selecting the contact(s) to receive the report.
You can attach a Saved Search to determine the nearby properties as an alternative to the preset radius search. The closest ten properties will display under the new expanded Market Summary section which now includes active, pending and sold listings when available.
Online Seller Report Summary is now an editable text area so the agent can add a custom message.
Ability to set an Email Frequency specific to the individual report. The report will still go out on Monday but now you can choose for each report how often it will be sent to the contact.
Ability to choose to stop sending the individual report when the listing goes Pending or Sold.
Q: Will my existing seller reports, created under the previous version, still go out?
A:Yes, the reports will continue to out on the same schedule as before, with the new report format.
Q: Can I still send an individual report to an email address, without enrolling them in the recurring report?
A: Yes and no. You can send an individual report to all contacts who are enrolled for that report. However, each recipient must be a contact in the LeadStreet system – sending to ad hoc email addresses is no longer supported.
Q: Do the emailed reports work on a mobile device?
A: Yes and no. The emailed reports should display on all devices, however, some of the information is too detailed for effective use on a mobile device, and will need to be viewed on a tablet or laptop.
Q: Will my setting changes be automatically saved?
A: No. Auto-save is no longer supported. The Save button must be used after making changes to any settings on the report.
