Connecting Neighbors was founded in 1999 and won the 2002 Inman Innovator of the Year award for the most Innovative Use of the Internet. In January 2005, Connecting Neighbors was acquired by Reply.com. As a result of this purchase, connecting neighbors has continued to grow and add serious features. Most importantly, they help real estate agents provide value to local homeowners while displaying your knowledge and commitment to the neighborhood.
From my experience, many real estate agents are continually struggling to brand themselves in the neighborhoods they compete in. Historically these real estate agents have done direct to consumer advertising via postcards, flyers, newsletters, block parties, sponsoring community events and more. These items all have varying degrees of success.
One thing we know is that the Internet is forever changing the typical homeowner. These individuals want immediate access to the information they seek, in a transparent nature. With Connecting Neighbors real estate agents can purchase these website solutions and lock-in their neighborhood! As Connecting Neighbors will only sell one site per area. Be the first real estate agent to provide your community local knowledge!
