scripts to get reviews real estate

As a real estate agent, online reviews significantly shape your business in the digital era. They can help you develop your brand, attract new leads, drive more revenue, and educate you on ways to grow and improve your business. They truly are an important resource for your company and are only becoming more important by the day. Some real estate professionals are still not paying attention to their online reviews. We hope you will correct this common mistake as soon as possible. Here are some tips and a few scripts you can implement to best leverage and use online reviews in your business. 

When To Ask for a Review

Many agents don’t know exactly when to ask for a review from their clients. There are a few moments when an agent should ask for a review of their work. Here are the three best options of when to ask for an online review:

During the transaction process

Not many agents go this route, but asking for a review during the transaction process can be extremely advantageous. While you might not have had your closing yet, your client's level of trust and excitement is extremely high at this point. Many agents feel it is too early to ask for a review before closing, but we urge you to reconsider. It is never too early to ask for a review if you provide top-notch service. 

Immediately after closing

This is the point where most agents will ask for a review. As long as you deliver exceptional service, the client’s opinion of you is extremely high right after you close the property. However, people’s memories and attention spans are quite short these days. So, be sure to ask for the review before closing day. After your closing, clients will begin to focus on other important matters in their lives. You want to be sure they do not forget you or the amazing service you just delivered.

While it is not ideal to wait too long, it is better late than never. As long as you have a good working relationship with your clients, it is alright to ask for a review of your services within 12 months of closing. While this option might have lower response rates, it is never too late to try.

What to Say When Asking for the Review

Now that you know when to ask for a review, you might wonder what to say. While agents can always pick up the phone and call to ask for the review, sending an SMS text or email is often more efficient. Here are a few ideas of what you can write to your clients.

It was a pleasure helping you find the home of your dreams. I hope you had as good of an experience as I did. I wanted to ask if you could do me a quick favour. Would you please leave me a review online? It would be great if you could let others know about the experience you had with me. It will only take a few minutes. Can I send you my personal review link?
