Display Listing Broker Attribution At All Times

There is a strange and incongruent set of policies, rules, and customs in real estate that apply to the display of broker attribution on listings. State laws regulate broker attribution on signs and in advertising. In most markets today, client servicing tools used by agents to work with homebuyers are afforded the opportunity through rules and policies to deprecate (remove) the broker attribution entirely.

More Funding in Client for Life Category for Brokers

A number of companies are supporting brokers with concierge solutions that solve this problem - and, it's a big problem. Up to 45 Million consumers move a year, and the real estate industry is the tip of the spear that can connect their customers with service providers. With MooveGuru, the entire move and all of the services related to homeownership are in the YourHomeHub portal. From a distribution perspective, MooveGuru is gaining a ton of traction with more than 316,000 agents across over 2,000 brokerages accessing the platform and inviting their customers.

Multiple Brokerage Applications Break the Consumer Relationship

Imagine the experience for the consumer; you buy or sell a home, and you get bombarded every month with pieces of information from each of these broker and agent application. Be careful whenever you reach out to a client - you DO NOT want your efforts to stay connected to result in a negative experience and ultimately being spam blocked.
