Definitely Real Pro. I learned about them while getting my CRS and have to say the return on my investment with them is excellent due to their "stealth sites"--I currently have more than 200 Buyers on my site receiving automated listings and emails, and just in the last week 4 of those have either made a trip to my area or scheduled one. Check them out...you won't be sorry!

Best of luck with your new venture! I have customized my own sites and it is very easy in this day and age (and cost effective too!) I highly recommend going a custom wordpress route. Jeremy Blanton does a fabulous job. (Google his name!)

If I may suggest - before you look at packages, develop a written web strategy. Some brokers ask that agents use the same package as the office site, so that the agent sites have the same look/feel and leads flow easily from the office site to individual agent's sites. Others simply have an agent roster with links to each individual agent site and agents are free to deploy a site from any vendor they choose. There is a cost/return benefit to be considered with either approach. Starting with a written strategy and list of required features will help you to evaluate site vendors so that you find one that fits your specific needs.

Jeffrey,

The more experienced your agents are, usually the more productive they will be and the easier your job will be. There's no substitute for people that know what they are doing and it can minimize legal issues.

Best wishes,

Bill

Jeffery, great advise below.
As John points out, a strategy that is understandable and demonstrateable is essential and will prove to be an excellant recruiting tool.

Judi mentioned Real Pro. You really should check the out. Judi hinted at the value.

You will also need a CRM that will provide tools for your agents. Send me a note and I'll get a few suggestions to you.

Hi Jeffrey

Such a tough decision. I am going through that right now for my personal website.
I have been using Agentadvantage for the past 5 years, and unfortunately they can't seem
to fix some of my problems on the back end.

I really like point2agent, but their blog doesn't work like I want it too. I am really into social networking by blog.

I have decided to use UltraAgent. You have to design the content on each of your pages manually but I am good at that and don't use standard stuff any way. Whatever you choose, you need to look into the IDX add on, Ihomefinder, http://www.ihomefinder.com/ , they have superior IDX and they have lead distribution.

Good Luck on your quest.
