“Agent Insight is a great way to get your name and face in front of the public,” says RE/MAX Agent Lisa Kopp. Lisa has been with RE/MAX Premier Realty in Prairie Village, KS, for the past seven years and has been in real estate for 16.
“I’ve gotten a lot of exposure through Agent Insight and several leads. It has put me in front of people I would not have met otherwise,” she said. Lisa has a good understanding of how to make the best use of Agent Insight. To date, she has posted 213 submissions covering over 50 different areas of expertise. She has written about neighborhoods, events and festivals, shopping and entertainment venues, schools, parks and gardens. Her photos focus on the things people want to know about as they search for a new home.
Also, she has placed a widget on her personal website to lead viewers back to her Agent Insight profile page. Once there, potential clients can see Lisa’s knowledge of the local market through her written insights and photos.
When Lisa first registered with Agent Insight, she spent a couple of days when the weather was nice shooting photos throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area. Her submissions added up quickly. She sent in posts every other day so that her face would appear regularly as one of the three “Featured Local Experts” on the Kansas City site’s home page. She continues to take pictures whenever she can squeeze in the time, frequently arriving early for appointments to photograph the neighborhood.
“I really want to hit this hard,” she said. “After becoming a manager/broker instead of working exclusively in sales, I found Agent Insight to be an excellent way to get back in front of the general public. This is so easy to do and it’s great marketing. There’s no reason not to use it. An agent would be foolish not to take advantage of this opportunity.”
Take a look at a few examples of Lisa’s insights and photographs below.
The Country Club Plaza
One of my all time favorites areas in Kansas City is the Country Club Plaza. I grew up near the Plaza in grade school and I shopped there in my teens. Today I enjoy the many excellent choices of restaurants. I also attend Unity Temple on the Plaza. This isn’t just a place to shop and eat though – there are many choices of homes surrounding The Plaza, from one bedroom condos to large stately homes. Kansas City is referred to as the “City of Fountains” and many of our most beautiful fountains are located at the Plaza.
