Kleard

Be Safe Be Productive

Real Estate Safety & Productivity App that Uses Real-Time Verification for Showings and Open Houses – www.kleard.com

Kleard helps keep agents safe in their day-to-day activities.

Surprisingly, many agents show homes and host open houses without any form of customer vetting. Kleard solves this problem.

With Kleard, an agent can quickly verify an individual’s email address and cell number on-the-spot and link them into the Kleard system. Kleard then keeps a trace of where the agent was, who they were with, and at what time. Automated and urgent alerts, as well as safety sirens are built-in just in case of an emergency.

Because the contact information is verified, it not only helps increase safety, but also provides agents with higher quality leads at their open houses. Kleard includes follow-up tools as well for an easy way to stay in touch.

With Kleard, agents will feel great knowing they have a safety and productivity toolkit in the palm of their hands.

Monthly emails are sent to residential property owners – sellers, or potential sellers, providing them with a home wealth report that will keep you top of mind and provide cost saving information.

Homebot provides a property specific report that provides information the homeowner will not easily find online while reinforcing you as the local market expert. With an average 58% engagement rate, Homebot will become your most valuable tool to market and maintain seller relationships. It will also show you who opened their report and how many times it was opened.

Homebot has been integrated into the “Contacts” section in Paragon for ease of use while giving you maximum marketing potential. Connect a new or existing contact to Homebot within Paragon (you will see the Homebot icon next to the fields that should be populated), or enter the address directly into Homebot to get started. In addition to the monthly reports, Homebot provides 3 preformatted social media posts and an individualized landing page for online lead generation.

With packages starting out at $25 per month for 500 contacts, it is very affordable and will engage more sellers. You can sign up for your free 7-day trial under the “Contacts” tab in Paragon or attend a webinar to learn more.

Homesnap – New Listing Syndication Option

The NEREN® MLS is pleased to announce a new relationship with Homesnap!
Homesnap is a third party real estate search platform for people to explore homes and search real estate listings online at www.homesnap.com or from a mobile phone, via the Homesnap app.
In addition to providing a website or app experience, the information available to a consumer is also different from that of an agent of a participating MLS.
The Agent Experience:
Known as Homesnap Pro, an agent of NEREN may set up their Agent Account and have access to Active, Active Under Contract, Pending and Closed MLS listings in real-time, and many other agent-only features that will be highlighted in future communications. Because ‘Pro’ is only for agents of participating MLS’s, MLS listings will be available in Homesnap Pro.
The Consumer Experience:
Consumers have the option of going to homesnap.com or to download and use the Homesnap app to search for Active and Active Under Contract listings. If you wish for your listing(s) to be available to consumers for search and display via Homesnap, you will need to authorize the MLS to distribute your listing(s) to Homesnap.
Optional Action Item:
To enable your office to send listings to Homesnap, you will need to log into nerenmls.com, and on the Dashboard, click on the “Brokers/Admins Edit Office Profile” tile.

You will then need to check the box as shown below, to “opt-in” to send your office’s listings to Homesnap for consumers to search/view.

There is another switch in Listing Maintenance so that if an office has selected to send listings to Homesnap and a seller does not wish for their listing to be marketed to consumers on Homesnap, there will be the option to select “No” in the Homesnap.com data authorization as shown below. If your seller does wish to send their listings to Homesnap, then please select “Yes”.

In addition to providing an app or website experience, the information available to a consumer is also different from that of an agent of a participating MLS as described below.
The Agent Experience:
Known as Homesnap Pro, an agent of NEREN may set up their Agent Account and have access to Active, Active Under Contract, Pending and Closed MLS listings in real-time, and many other agent-only features that will be highlighted in future communications. Because ‘Pro’ is only for agents of participating MLS’s, no action is required for your listings to be available in Homesnap Pro. This information is available in the Homesnap App, or by logging into the homesnap.com website.
Some of the Agent-only features of Homesnap Pro include:
  • Access MLS data on the go with the Homesnap Pro app
  • Instant info on any property, not just listings
  • Message within Homesnap to communicate and share properties with clients and other agents
  • Branded version of Homesnap for your clients and contacts
  • Your listing, your lead
  • Homesnap’s Safety Timer provides an added layer of protection when meeting unfamiliar prospects
  • And much more. Click here to learn more about Homesnap.
 You will also notice two new tiles on your NEREN Dashboard for Homesnap:
Homesnap Icons on Dashboard
The Consumer Experience:
Consumers have the option of going to homesnap.com or to download and use the Homesnap app to search for Active and Active Under Contract listings. If you wish for your listing(s) to be available to consumers for search and display via Homesnap, you will need to authorize the MLS to distribute your listing(s) to Homesnap. As with other third party websites, the office first has to opt-in to permit your listings to be distributed to Homesnap. If your office has opted-in, and you wish for your listing to be available for search in Homesnap, you will need to select “Yes” in the Data Authorizations section of listing maintenance in Paragon.
