The Process

  • Set up the importance of Client Reviews from the beginning – at the Initial consultation
  • Take note of what sites does your client already use?
  • Describe your client review process at the close of escrow
  • A reminder during the transaction – an opportunity
  • At closing – remind the client to look for the email with the details. They can use the same review
  • Bonus – Get a Video Testimonial
  • Be prepared to send reminders and ask for the review 4-5 times!
  • Don’t be afraid to ask and remind your client about the review!
