Sellstate’s Power Suite Featured in RIS Media

RIS Media, residential real estate’s definitive source for news and information, has published an article highlighting Sellstate’s investment in their agents by partnering with home search giant Homes.com to create the industry’s most complete and comprehensive technology package, the Sellstate Power Suite.

See the full article below.

Spending Money to Make Money: CEO Invests in Homes.com’s Homes Connect to Power Sellstate Network

After a successful career as a regional director and owner at a Canadian real estate firm, Arthur Darmanin felt there was a better way to succeed in the real estate franchise business. Consequently, he relocated to Florida to launch the Fort Meyers-based Sellstate Realty in 2002, along with his partner Neil Cresswell.

“I felt the approach to the real estate business was kind of archaic,” Darmanin explains. “The first thing we did was set up a centralized process so that we could process commissions electronically.” Traditionally an administrative headache for brokers and managers, it became a cornerstone of Sellstate, allowing them to focus on building the business and supporting their agents.

“We view our agents as our greatest asset,” explains Darmanin. “We strive to help our agents close more deals and become better at what they do through training, and especially in today’s world, by utilizing the right tools.”

Following up on the simple, yet innovative idea to supply agents with the necessary tools, Darmanin and Cresswell decided to make a major investment in order to dramatically augment productivity.

“We view our agents as our greatest asset…”

“To succeed in today’s market you need several things,” says Darmanin, “such as a website with IDX, a CRM, a listing presentation, a buyer presentation, social media, listing integration, enhanced listings on the major sites, just to name a few. When we surveyed our top producers, we discovered that their biggest issue was not having all these components in one place. Our goal was to get a package that accommodates all these critical elements and our research clearly revealed that the industry’s best solution was Homes.com’s Homes Connect marketing platform.”

Darmanin and Cresswell partnered with Homes.com to create a custom-branded version of the Homes Connect marketing platform known as the Sellstate Power Suite. This custom-branded platform provides the firm’s agents with one-stop technology with a single log-in, and a single information input, allowing agents to create a comprehensive package for clients. Agents can also use Power Suite to generate and manage leads, and as their online CRM.

According to Darmanin, “Power Suite includes a neighborhood reports feature, so agents are able to not only create a listing presentation, but also a 35-page neighborhood demographic report. We know that this feature will differentiate our agents during a listing presentation and help them win listings and ultimately close more deals.”

Through Power Suite, Sellstate’s agents can now create a report that is customized to every client, instead of just a standard CMA and generic presentation. With the click of the mouse, they can prepare a brochure, postcards, and an entire marketing package in 15 minutes, before ever going to see the client.

“…we have all the confidence that it will help us continue to expand and grow.”

Rounding out the Power Suite program is a CRM tool that enables Sellstate’s agents to automatically stay in touch with the client, even allowing them to integrate their social media.

These powerful and abundant advantages make Darmanin happy to pay for Power Suite (Homes Connect marketing platform from Homes.com) on behalf of his agents.

“The Sellstate philosophy has always been to differentiate ourselves, and we are doing so through monopolizing the fact that we are agent-centric,” adds Darmanin. “So far, we are pleased with our relationship with Homes.com and we have all the confidence that it will help us continue to expand and grow.”

Sellstate Forms Strategic Alliance with Zillow

Arthur Darmanin, CEO of Sellstate Realty Systems Network, Inc., has finalized signing a deal with Zillow, America’s most popular online real estate database, which will succeed in showcasing all of Sellstate’s listings to over 64 million unique visitors per month.

This signing comes on the heels of yet another deal that Sellstate signed earlier this year with Homes.com, another major real estate website with exorbitant amounts of traffic.

Having formed strategic alliances with both Zillow and Homes.com, two of the most widely used Real Estate service providers, Sellstate has now extended its consumer reach to over 78.5 million visitors a month.

The Zillow.com and Homes.com deals are part of Sellstate’s Power Suite. Power Suite is a technology package which provides its users with a multitude of online tools that are key to the business of today’s real estate agent. Through the Sellstate Power Suite, each member of Sellstate receives a personal website which contains several features designed to speed up the buying and selling processes and provide the ultimate experience for clients. Among the most prominent of these features are: full listing search capabilities, customer relationship management system, a business intelligence center, market insights, neighborhood demographics, social integration, listing syndication, and a marketing center. These technology tools are unparalleled in the real estate industry and are a must in order to successfully provide clients with the highest level of service.

“According to the National Association of Realtors, 80% of buyers shop for their homes and properties online, making the online presence of real estate advisors vital. These strategic alliances now bring our monthly consumer reach total to over 78.5 million viewers” stated Darmanin during an unfolding presentation of the Power Suite.

Consumers today are very sophisticated due to access to the web, and thus expect a higher level of knowledge and sophistication from real estate agents. With the combination of these two contracts with the country’s largest public providers of real estate listings and the Power Suite technology package, Sellstate’s Real Estate Advisors have both the knowledge and tools to not only meet these demands of today’s consumers but to exceed them.

“None of these phenomenal services come at any additional cost to our clients or advisors” says Darmanin, “it is part of Sellstate’s value proposition. I personally would never list my property with an agent that could not provide a robust technology based marketing plan, and give me the online exposure that Sellstate does.”

Sellstate is a National Real Estate Franchise Company with its headquarters located in Fort Myers, Florida. To learn more about the Sellstate Power Suite and the strategic alliances with Zillow and Homes.com please visit www.JoinSellstate.com.
