Welcome to the real geeks' new agent mastermind corner
Would you like to know what to say to address today's most common seller concerns?
Join us for Keeping it Real with the #1 real estate agent in Michigan, Jeff Glover.
We made a list of the top 10 seller concerns for this Spring 2022 market (which you'll need accurate answers to) when asking for an appointment or a signed listing contract. You'll get the answers to questions like... Why do I need to pay a real estate agent in this hot market? Why can't I just sell my home myself? Why can't I just pay you to bring me a buyer? Where will I move when there's not much for sale? Other real estate agents are willing to take less. I want to hire a friend or family member to sell my home. We need to finish a few projects before we put it on the market. And more...

This indy broker built his business on Real Geeks — then left it. Find out why he came back and is on track for a record year.
By Inman Content Studio
Craig Schneider runs a tight ship. His business, Norchar, has 29 agents right now, but only three staff. And he’s one of them, joined by his wife Lus and an operations manager.
Schneider and his wife launched their Rochester, New York brokerage just over eight years ago. After some false starts, they selected Real Geeks.
“Like any new business owners, we wasted a lot of time doing a lot of the wrong things or chasing the wrong things in the wrong direction,” Schneider shared. “At one point, I built my own website. And if you're ever considering that, don't do it. Even if you have $200,000, it's going to be irrelevant the minute you're done — and you're not going to build up a system that's as good as Real Geeks.
Schneider originally chose Real Geeks because it offered an all-in-one package where the CRM is integrated into the website. “That was the most impressive part of what Real Geeks offered: the ability to not only provide information out to an audience but actually capture their data if you provided enough value to them.”
Another aspect Schneider appreciated was that Real Geeks is an open-source tech platform. “For those who aren't techie, that means they play well with others,” he said. “They allow data to be transferred from their system to other systems, and then the same is true, they allow data to come into their system as well.”
Tripped up by lead distribution
As Norchar grew, so did the need for effective lead distribution. And there wasn’t a system Schneider didn’t try.
“Some of my agents are doing 100% of their business off of my leads,” he said. They implemented Round Robin but found the lead would just keep circling if no one moved on it.
Then they developed a digital version of the traditional ‘desk duty’ assignment, called Lead Shifts. Agents signed up for a block of time in which they would receive all the incoming leads. But that, too, proved a problematic and far too manual process.
Then Schneider hired a few ISAs but found the right temperament for sales calls wasn’t the same person who wanted to sit at a desk all day.
“I also realized I was outsourcing the most important opportunity to create a connection with a client. So we stopped using ISAs.”
Then Schneider found a tool he wanted to incorporate: Slack. The messaging platform solved several internal communication issues for the brokerage, but configuring it with Real Geeks proved to be too much. That, on top of some MLS integration issues, proved to be the last straw. Or so he thought.
He came. He saw. He tried it. Then he went back to Real Geeks.
Scheider is nothing if not thorough. You name a platform, and he explored it. He moved away
from Real Geeks and tried out every competitor out there, testing for ease of use, robustness of performance, and responsiveness of support. But he found many were outsourced to the point where customization was beyond possible.
“There are some great platforms out there,” he noted. “But I think that Real Geeks is the best investment I have in my business. The street price for Real Geeks is unbelievably low in contrast to any platform that's even similar. And I'm at a point in my business where I'm willing to pay more to get extra features.”
In all his experience exploring other platforms, Scheider came back to Real Geels with a wishlist of what he wanted. And happily, he was able to work in concert with the team, including the primary architect Kevin McCarthy, who is also the CEO.
“What I love about Real Geeks is that I can make it as complex as I want to, but I also have the freedom to keep it as simple as I want to. And I’m still an ‘infant’ with the platform. Real Geeks is continuing to grow and provide new types of awesome services. If you're not using them, there's no value in them. But figure out ways that you can make them work into your system and there’s no stopping you.”
Craig Schneider has been a driving force in Rochester’s new construction residential real estate sector for more than 15 years.
Craig was a Real Geeks user but left after frustrations with building his brokerage around the website and CRM.
He experimented with using many different platforms for his business that eventually didn’t work out either. He discusses what he was looking for, why some of the platforms he tried didn’t work for him, and why he eventually returned to Real Geeks. PLUS, how he’s using it now! Join host Todd Tramonte as he dives into how Craig has maximized the Real Geeks platform for lead generation and distribution for his entire team with a very high return on investment.
This year, focus on giving back more to the business, and I believe the business will give more back to you with all my heart.

what our clients love about real geeks
“This website has changed the landscape of my business beyond what I could have expected. The capabilities are endless. The support team is prompt and polite and knowledgeable. We have finally ironed out all the kinks and my site is running like a powerful machine. The CRM is easy to use and has been a great way to keep track of everyone on one site.”
“I have been a client of Real Geeks for about two years now. I have used at least 4 different CRM platforms in addition to Real Geeks. The Real Geeks platform is by far the best value in this space. The number of services included in the monthly fee is unbelievable. As a single agent you can not find a more robust CRM service platform for the cost. Quite frankly, if they were looking for sales reps to sell this platform I may consider ending my real estate career to sell for them. It's just that good.”
“We have been with Real Geeks for short period of time but it has been a worthwhile experience. The support staff is awesome. It doesn't matter how insignificant the question they always acknowledge it with professionalism and speed. I love their videos and weekly tips. Their mastermind discussions are awesome. We are very satisfied with the CRM software and look forward to years of being a Real Geeks.”

How to Convert More Online Buyer and Seller Leads to Appointments w/ Anna Krueger
If you’re spending money to generate online buyer and seller leads, and you’re not happy with how many people respond to you or book an appointment, you’ll learn how to improve your results.
You’ll learn how to get the lead into your CRM, how many times to reach out, exactly what to say, and the marketing that’s necessary to go out to back up your phone calls.Join Frank Klesitz and inside sales coach and trainer Anna Krueger this week to learn how to convert more online buyer and seller leads to appointments!
If you are looking for a timeless way to generate seller leads that will consistently and predictably get people to call you who are interested in selling their home, this is it.
Frank Klesitz, CEO of Vyral Marketing, will walk you through the process from start to finish.
In this episode of Keeping it Real Frank Klesitz shows you how to write and mail the “Golden Letter” for seller lead generation. Yes, an actual USPS letter using a real stamp to put in the hands of possible sellers.
This is a personal message, in a #10 envelope without your logo on it (so it gets opened), that you send to the neighbors of a house that just sold, letting them know you have a buyer for them too. In it, you’ll ask them to call you to find out what your buyer would pay for their home.
Of course, you’ll only write the letter ethically by representing a real buyer, either a retail buyer in your CRM or an institutional buyer who provides instant offers. There isn't any buyer personal information in the letter.
Join us for this episode of Keeping it Real and you’ll learn how to pull the mailing list, format the mailing list, write the letter, and mail it using a mail house that will print, stuff, and mail them for you at the cost of about $1 a letter. The cost can get down to about $0.85 a letter at volume, and you always mail first class pre-sort (never standard/junk mail rate).
We also go over how to get these buyers, how to get a commission agreement with the sellers signed, and how to handle the inbound calls.
