Agents who have experienced the benefits of 1parkplace.com have told other agents
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 13, 2008
Real Estate technology company, Real Estate Leads Provider: 1parkplace, reports record Q1 sales for its Internet lead generation and client management systems. As the real estate market slows and REALTOR®s marketing dollars are more selectively spent, many are looking to online technologies to improve the quality and quantity of new leads while lowering the overall cost of those leads. 1parkplace is filling this need by offering REALTOR®s an affordable, online solution that connects agents with consumers and helps their businesses succeed in this increasingly competitive market.
Operating essentially under the radar, 1parkplace has provided nearly 1 million home buyers and sellers with daily listings and relevant real estate information on behalf of a network of over 20,000 REALTOR®s. According to Steve Hundley, CEO of 1parkplace, Inc., the company has expanded through a network of industry referrals. "Agents who have experienced the benefits of 1parkplace.com have told other agents," said Hundley, "and led to 53% growth in 2007 over 2006." He went on to say, "Our 2008 sales are already 83% higher than Q1 2007." Hundley attributes much his company's growth to the success of the agents using his system, "You'd think we just opened our doors, however, we started 1parkplace in 1995 and for the last 12 years we have been quietly consulting America's top agents and firms on strategies that utilize technology mixed with good execution. With the significant market slowdown, word is spreading that our agent clients are outperforming their competition in a huge way."
Ruth Pugh of Century 21 Award, whose team ranked first in the world in 2007 among all Century 21 teams, noted that with more consumers using the Internet to find homes, a successful agent must use the online medium effectively to harness those leads."To be successful as an agent today, you also have to understand the psychology of the home buyer," said Pugh. "Nearly 90% of them are using the Internet and you have to be able to empower your clients with all the information they are seeking from your personal website." She went on to say that 1ParkPlace has been a boon to her business. "It has built a system combined with a strategy that has helped our clients obtain information fast and efficiently. We have found that our customers spend hours on our website narrowing down the property selection to just those they want to see. The 1parkplace system is smart enough to provide better filtering and searching than our own MLS."
Today, 1parkplace powers many of the most productive agents and brokerage firms in America. Companies such as Prudential Florida WCI and Century 21 Judge Fite have incorporated 1parkplace into their online marketing programs to assist with Internet lead generation.
Gregg Neuman, the top Prudential agent in the U.S.A. for 6 of the past 10 years emphasized the importance of having the right online marketing/lead generation system, particularly in this dynamic market. "I have tried hundreds of tools over the years," said Neuman, "and found that 1parkplace offers us a turnkey solution that enables my operation to generate more leads from the Internet than we ever had before. It also provides a back-office reporting system that allows me to hold my team accountable for proper follow-up through closing." He added, "We have dramatically shifted our marketing from print to Internet and our cost per lead has dropped from $380 to around $18 with better results.
