Top Tips For Collecting Positive Online Realtor Reviews

How and Why To Create A Continuous Process of Converting Happy Sellers to Positive Public Reviews

As an agent, reviews are one of the top ways to increase & convert referrals as well as improve your ranking organically without the need for expensive advertising. Doesn’t it sometimes feel like getting client reviews is awkward or down right impossible though?

You know they’re increasingly important in the online world, but getting clients to take the time to review you and figure out how to actually do it can be tough, even when you’re fresh in their minds!

We’ve coached a lot of clients through the process of getting client reviews (even when they started from zero!). Read on to find out our top tips to make it easy....

  • #1 Reach Out & Call!: Make the request feel personal. Whether it’s a client you just completed a sale for, or one you helped into their first home two years ago, pick up the phone and give them a call. Holidays and anniversaries are great reasons to reach out and check in. Then let them know you’ll be sending a review request and ask if they’d mind helping you out.
  • #2 Be Open About The Process: It’s ok (and even highly beneficial!) to ask for help - most of us love giving it, and your clients will more than likely feel the same. Ask them if they mind helping you out to build up your online reviews. If you’ve followed step one and have them on the phone, asking them and getting them to verbally say yes makes it much more likely they’ll follow through when you email them the link!
  • #3 Make It Easy: Make sure it’s super easy for your clients to follow through on their promise. Email them a clear link to your profile on the platform they’re comfortable reviewing you on (a system that gives them options is best as not everyone has a Google or Facebook account). If they have to search to find you, or spend time to figure out how, they'll give up and it won't happen.
  • #4 Follow Up & Close The Loop: Wait a couple of days and then send a friendly follow-up text if they haven't submitted their review yet. Then, close the loop once they DO provide you a review and thank them! A lot of our clients will send a small gift card or thank you card to reinforce how much the review means. That way, your client will also be likely to remember you when their coworker, brother-in-law, neighbour or that over-friendly stranger at the market starts talking about how great you were and recommend you!
