How Real Estate Agents Can Sell More Homes While Working Fewer Hours

Top Property Marketing

2022 has been quite the year for the real estate market. From a surge of home prices all across the board to investors pouring in money to protect their wealth against inflation. While real estate agents are transitioning from the old-fashioned way of billboard and magazine advertising to the more calculated and scalable approach digital marketing has to offer. One company, in particular, has set its sights on capitalizing on the massive opportunity… To help residential real estate agents generate qualified appointments and close deals on demand, Hasher Azizi founded Top Property Marketing (TPM). A digital marketing agency specialized in helping agents scale their business quickly and cost-efficiently through paid advertising and automated follow-up. TPM is a completely done-for-you marketing solution, so agents can focus on what really matters: closing real estate deals. Hasher's TPM chatbots has the innate ability to recognize whether a lead is looking to buy, sell or rent a home - all while carrying out the client qualifying process. This is simply done through the lead's preferred choice of communication: Messenger, Instagram or WhatsApp, before securing them as a qualified appointment on the agent's calendar. Then further following up with leads on a weekly basis for over a year through email, SMS and chatbot communication with the agent's listings and open houses, along with tips and resources - making the buying, selling or renting process easier for their time and money. It's a near-identical experience for real estate leads who are discussing their property plans whether it's with an agent or TPM’s chatbot on the agent’s behalf. With the exception that TPM’s chatbots can serve an unlimited amount of leads anytime around the clock. The majority of a real estate agent’s income is made through the follow-up process and a successful follow-up assures clients that their agents have their best interest in mind. Residential real estate agents working with Top Property Marketing save themselves the time and effort of generating, qualifying and scheduling leads for appointments. While being able to better spend their time closing more real estate deals and doing the cherished things that motivated them to become real estate agents in the first place.

‘Ready for Ron’ Releases Research Showing DeSantis Favorability Growing

Ready for Ron

Today, Ready for Ron, a draft committee encouraging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, released research it commissioned from Impact Social showing growing support for Governor DeSantis. Impact Social analyzed the online and social media discussion in relation to Ron DeSantis and Donald Trump among swing voters from June 1 to June 14, 2022. It will repeat this analysis for the next several weeks to determine trends of candidate support. The summary of findings states in part: “…Ron DeSantis is not short of love and support among floating voters. Many are attracted by his straight talking and political clarity which appeals to rightish voters living in more left leaning states. They see a leader who gets things done. People inside and outside FL applaud how he has led the state through Covid 19 and support his policy positions on issues like guns, abortion and CRT… The news is positive amongst liberal detractors as well: “…Despite this love fest there are many fence sitters who loathe DeSantis, though it must be stressed that this mainly stems from the left. They see the governor as Trump in disguise. They feel strongly that FL is no longer a free state and has instead turned into DeSantis’ Land, an authoritarian country which is free only in the eyes of its leader. In evidence they speak of the Disney related ‘don’t say gay’ law, the withdrawal of funding to the Tampa Bay Rays - allegedly due to their views on gun control - and the supposed bullying of the Special Olympics to lift its vaccine mandate. All of which leads those who oppose DeSantis to mark him as ‘dangerous’, a threat to democracy and freedom of speech…” “This initial research supports what we are already seeing regarding growing support for Ron DeSantis. “While misguided and false attacks from the radical left increase, his support does too,” explained Ready for Ron legal counsel and spokeswoman Lilian Rodríguez-Baz. “The radical left is risking our future, and DeSantis has the courage to fight back, which is why they fear him so much.” “Our country must change course immediately,” Rodríguez-Baz continued. With the economy, inflation, crime, and erosion of the American way of life, we need confident, dependable, and proven leadership like only Ron DeSantis can deliver.” The online and social media analysis Impact Social shows more conversations taking place about DeSantis and the focus and content are trending positive. “Under President Donald Trump’s leadership, the United States enjoyed record unemployment, economic stability, safety, and global respect. Many are yearning for a return to these policies and the prosperity good leadership can bring,” Rodríguez-Baz said. “The era of President Trump was wonderful, but now, since he isn’t currently running, we must get ready for a new leader, we must be Ready for Ron.” The Committee continues its TV and online advertising to engage Americans to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. Impact Social is a specialist social media, online monitoring, and analysis company. Using big data software Impact Social tracks over 60 million online sites including Twitter, Facebook, all blogs, forums, and news websites. While ‘Ready for Ron’ is completely unaffiliated with the DeSantis campaign per federal regulations, it has taken the novel step of submitting a formal Advisory Opinion Request to the FEC seeking to share its growing supporter list with Governor DeSantis if the Draft succeeds and he announces his candidacy. ### Contact Details Ready for Ron Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 dan@readyforron.com Company Website https://www.readyforron.com/
