"Whilst many of us see the future of our industry in technology leadership, if we don't do the basics right we will not earn the right to a future,” said Grant Harrod, CEO of LJ Hooker.

“Asking our customers for feedback, which we launched for our LJ Hooker network this month, is not a revolutionary concept. The challenge for everyone is having the courage to listen and change.”

A ‘Real’ Twist on the Agent Review Process 

Though the basic tenets of RealSatisfied bear resemblance to other customer review systems, it distinguishes itself from the competition through the sheer depth of its survey. While Zillow, for instance, only allows clients to rate an agent’s local knowledge, process expertise, responsiveness and negotiation skills, RealSatisfied’s survey samples clients on such matters as:

The agent’s performance on negotiating, attention to detail and other technical processes

The agent’s characteristics, from politeness and understanding to trustworthiness and accessibility

Whether or not they would recommend the agent to others Their overall testimonial about the agent -

Thank you +Edward Berenbaum :)
