The Challenge

In the modern digital era, people are inundated with information. Clients are searching tirelessly through a saturated data pool of potential trustworthy agents to work with. Still, real estate professionals also must sort through a variety of real estate-based platforms that can provide and post honest and authenticated reviews from past clients.

Finding the right customer-review platform to learn how to use, invest time in and share with past and prospective clients was one of Gaio’s biggest concerns. He was also concerned with establishing brand recognition in a highly competitive industry while achieving high rankings on Google searches through SEO. 

The Solution

That was before he found RankMyAgent.com. With RMA, Gaio was able to utilize the platform to collect verified reviews that are monitored and fact-checked to prevent falsified information from spreading online, potentially damaging an agent’s reputation. On RMA, he could also easily store and share his authenticated reviews across all levels, including REALTOR.ca, social media channels, and personal websites. These multiple layers of linking and the number of reviews all work collaboratively to boost rankings on search engines, including Google, through SEO best practices.

“Also, it’s (RMA) a great lead-generation tool, and it’s easy for clients to provide and validate reviews. I also show my reviews to clients I already know to help reinforce my reputation.”

As a member of RMA, Gaio receives real-time review alerts as they come in from the clients, and he can respond to the author at that time. From there, Gaio can choose to share those reviews across social media platforms and websites to maximize exposure.

The Outcome

Since joining in 2014, Gaio has collected more than 140 client reviews and has an impeccable 4.98-star rating out of five.

Gaio attributes at least 40 leads from clients finding his profile on RankMyAgent and reading his honest and verified reviews from previous clients. He also attributes $40,000 in business to these reviews in 2020.  

The reviews collected from clients have helped grow his online presence both from an SEO perspective, including higher Google rankings, and his personalized brand across social media and business websites.

The Result

John Gaio has successfully collected over 140 reviews thus far, and that number will continue to grow as RMA is an intuitive tool and helps streamline the review-collection process.

Agents simply request reviews from their clients after closing a deal, and the process, which takes only a few moments, is easy to complete in a user-friendly platform.

Through the collection of verified reviews, not only is Gaio boosting his online presence, but he is gaining key insights on how to enhance his service going forward.
