Start collecting your missing reviews now

  • The spring market is here and you’re likely to sell a higher proportion of properties than at any other time of year. This is a terrific opportunity to request a large bundle of reviews.
  • Your RMA Score (the number of reviews received as a proportion of the properties you sell) is one of the most important factors in winning an Award. You receive this score in your Monday emails from us (not getting them? click here).
  • 2018 Agent of the Year winners are currently tracking with a RMA Score of around 70 per cent. That’s almost double the national average!


Request reviews

 


Put yourself in the running

If you want to be genuinely competitive for a 2019 Agent of the Year award, you’ll need to push your RMA Score above 70 per cent.

Anecdotally, the sooner you request a review after a sale, the higher the chance that the vendor will post a review. Agents and agencies at the top of their markets are doing two things right:

  • They’re integrating review requests into their routine sale process – requesting reviews as they sell each property, instead of waiting weeks and requesting them in batches.
  • They’re requesting reviews as soon as possible after the sale, when the memory and euphoria of the sale is fresh in the vendor’s mind. Some even request reviews while they’re still celebrating with the vendor and the ink on the contract has barely dried!

 

 

Sold a listing earlier this year? You can still get a review

While the chances of getting a review are better the sooner you request a review after a sale, there's still plenty of ways to get your missing reviews from earlier in 2018.

 

Check out these 5 reasons your vendor hasn't reviewed you yet (and how to fix them), plus some helpful tips to get all your missing reviews.

 

 

Think you’re too busy?

Requesting a review takes just minutes; especially if you use the new RateMyAgent App. Available from the Google Play and Apple stores, the app empowers agents to requests review between appointments and inspections, on the way home from work, or any other time you’re on-the-go.
