Now for some good news: the housing market reached 3.3 months of inventory at the end of July, and experts predict that number will continue to rise. While encouraging, this is still a far cry from the five to six month supply needed to reach a balanced market.
As a result, competition for listings will remain fierce for the foreseeable future, which means agents need to stand out when offering sellers to close the deal. From your experience to your background to your strategies, everything has to be compelling.
The problem? You can either use your brokerage’s standardized layouts or spend hours creating your own. ACCESS, a new platform from Agent Image, hopes to solve this dilemma by combining its design expertise with web-based presentation technology.
Your deck, your way
ACCESS is a web-based presentation platform with a growing collection of exclusive designs that you can customize to suit your needs, giving you more power to define your professional brand. If you need more customization, you can even order a bespoke branded template through ACCESS.
The company also recently added three new list presentation templates with pre-written copy that let you quickly complete presentations with only minor customization. You will also have access to more powerful photo and text editing tools.
This platform also provides real-time data on how people interact with your presentations, so ACCESS pitch decks are as insightful as they are visually impressive.
Cover all your marketing bases
Agent Image understands that presentations aren’t the only material you need to sell a home. ACCESS therefore signed its first industry partner, MAXA Designs, who helped create over 350 templates of marketing materials, including “Just Listed” Facebook posts, open house flyers, direct mail/postcards, real estate brochures, etc
James Wong, Founder and CEO of MAXA Designs, said, “I consider this partnership to be the best modern design collaboration for the agent. It’s a synergy of shared values to provide the best presentation tools for the agent and marketing for the ad. Agent Image and MAXA are firm believers in modern agent branding and aesthetics and we’re excited for everyone to see the models we’ve designed.
Scale to meet agent needs
In addition to the open house listing and presentation templates, other features are in store for ACCESS, including a revolutionary website builder that uses themes exclusively designed by Agent Image – an addition to the flagship custom web design service of the company. Similarly, a networking tool specifically aimed at real estate professionals is also in preparation.
Jon Krabbe adds: “ACCESS is just getting started! We look forward to sharing additional features, new products, and strategic partners in the months ahead. Agents can rest assured that even as our platform evolves, our dedication to their success remains the same. »
Communicate with agents in person
In addition to developing ACCESS, Agent Image has also been involved in major industry events. The company is the title sponsor of Luxury Portfolio International’s Luxury Summit, Inman Luxury Connect 2022 and the upcoming Compass REtreat 2022. It is also a strategic sponsor of Tom Ferry’s Elite Retreat, Success Summit and BluePrint events.
Not only were these events an opportunity to connect with agents, brokers and other real estate innovators, they also served as venues to showcase and test ACCESS. This allows Agent Image to gather first-hand feedback to better align the ACCESS feature set with user needs.
“The response so far has been very positive,” says Brian Shorr, vice president of business development. “The excitement and demand for ACCESS is palpable, as there is finally a tool designed specifically for the real estate industry that gives agents more control over their branding when they show up. Ease of use was also a huge plus. We made sure that ACCESS was truly a bespoke solution that could save agents valuable hours in their very hectic day,” he notes.
