A - Three reasons:
  1. As a Listing Agent, you can fill your open house staffing needs with an easy to use mapping system to announce your open house opportunities to everyone in your Brokerage at once.
  2. As a Buyer’s Agent, you can easily pick up open houses without spending hours combing through the MLS and making calls to Listing Agents to find one. Open House is a proven way to meet potential new clients!
  3. Many Brokerages have more than one office, even crossing into multiple Counties. As a Realtor building your inter-industry networking, it’s a great way to connect with Agents in your company you wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to meet in person.
Keep track of your favorite Agents for ease of future staffing and partnering opportunities. Only actively licensed Realtors may join OHWeekly.com
