Christy Friesen is an actual property advertising stand-out in Wichita. This is the strategy for potential shoppers on the market looking for an agent to assist them promote or purchase a house. First, search Wichita on Zillow, and weed out anyone and not using a 5-star evaluation. Subsequent, comply with the hyperlinks to their web site and social platforms, after which cross reference for 5-star opinions on Google. And “Whamo!” You discovered a confirmed skilled on the prime of your recreation. 

Utilizing Friesen for instance, over 300 glorious Zillow opinions and the very fact she’s good sufficient to put money into turning into a Zillow Premier Agent says so much. 302 excellent Google votes amplify this agent’s efforts too. Clicking on Fb, you discover 1,600 followers engaged by a personable girl who does social the precise method – with easy, sincere sharing. Ditto Instagram. 500+ connections on LinkedIn are additionally indicative, as is the very fact Friesen is a volunteer with the Kansas Human Society.

I’ll forgive this Witchita State College alumnus for utilizing Re/Max’s cookie-cutter web site since she ticks each different field America’s greatest brokers do. Sadly, Friesen additionally will get let off the standard media advertising hook. You will perceive why if you happen to’ve ever been smack in the course of Kansas. Oh, and in case you seen, there’s your five-minute technique for monitoring down who one of the best professionals are in any given metropolis. As I mentioned earlier than, no single service provides you the larger image.

Wichita is an thrilling market for a lot of causes. One among these is tied to how companies have been operated within the previous days. Custom and the cliche onerous work can take you anyplace. I discovered J.P. Weigand & Sons, Inc. through excellent scores on Google. Nonetheless, my different strategies turned a bit disjointed till I found the enterprise’ legendary CEO Nestor Weigand, Jr. (who have to be about 84 by now), whose grandfather based the corporate again in 1902. In fact, Weigand’s enterprise is included now, however the shopper trying to find a Wichita agent ought to be knowledgeable about all one of the best selections. 

The web site has a really respectable website positioning rating, which suggests some significance was connected to the corporate’s on-line billboard. Advertising Director Abby Parker appears to know her stuff too, since Instagram, Fb, and LinkedIn prime all of the others in Wichita, and with creativity too. I additionally just like the energetic weblog postings with useful info, one other indicator {that a} enterprise is “all-in” for serving shoppers and making a revenue. Lastly, no matter investing, actual property, and enterprise information Kansas possess (half joke), Nestor Weigand’s firm is in it. What’s attention-grabbing for me right here is seeing an authentic brick-and-mortar success story adapt and keep related for a century.

Christy Needles is a High 15 Berkshire Hathaway Agent Nationwide. 146 excellent Zillow opinions put her on this checklist. In fact, 14 excellent Google opinions helped a bit too. However the 144 gross sales within the final 12 months (Zillow) instructed me one thing the opposite standards didn’t. That mentioned, this skilled’s different advertising endeavors appear a bit muted, contemplating this gross sales quantity. I think Needles is getting numerous miles out of the Berkshire Hathaway model. And it’s a wise transfer for sustaining a enterprise and financial system of effort, however not for quickly rising an organization. 

You see, 598 followers on Fb is just not so much for a enterprise or particular person. However Needles does a superb job of participating the guests she has. Sadly, the identical goes for her Instagram feed, which has a damaged hyperlink on her web site. 

Her web site is aesthetically pretty, however the website positioning effort is nothing to be happy with. 500+ LinkedIn connections normally point out an agent utilizing enterprise networking to achieve leads. 

Eric Locke makes this week’s checklist. A Zillow Premier Agent, Locke has over 180 excellent opinions there. On Google, he’s not reached the 100 opinions threshold, however 15 of his profile have 5.0. He has over 1,300 followers on Fb, however the agent appears to have slid off the social media roadmap. His web site has the worst website positioning rating I’ve examined this yr. 

Locke could delegate a lot to his fairly giant NRA Nice American Realty staff. His staff was picked within the 2021 ERA High Producer Awards we coated. A few of Locke’s staff members mess around with Instagram and different channels, nevertheless it doesn’t seem like the staff chief places a lot inventory in digital advertising. He’s on this checklist as a result of lots of people have been happy together with his degree of professionalism. He did pay the person to be a Zillow Premier Agent, in order that’s one thing. I might say it’s vital to guage no matter funding converts to leads/gross sales. Definitely, you need to put your self on the prime of each agent search funnel doable.
