Real Estate Webmasters (REW) is a real estate lead generation company that helps real estate agents build idx websites to capture buyer and seller leads in their area. The leads are stored in the REW CRM where they can be nurtured over time. REW also offers marketing services such SEO and PPC management, copywriting, programming and consulting.
Websites built by REW are responsive and can be fully customized or built on a pre-designed template. There are currently two templates to choose from with a third one on the way. Their current templates are capable of 360-degree photo, video, and slideshows in addition to side-by-side listings and map views. Their new template will have a virtual reality feature, which will set Real Estate Webmasters apart from the competition. REW websites can be built for brokerages, teams and individual agents.
The REW CRM is accessible on both desktop and mobile devices. It operates like other real estate CRMs in that it allows agents to see what pages and listings leads viewed as well as what searches they saved on the site. This helps agents prepare before getting the lead on the phone. The CRM also helps agents stay organized with action plans and calendars. These let agents know when it’s time to reach out to each lead again. Automated listing emails are sent out automatically to keep leads engaged.
Real estate teams will love the features built in to the CRM. Agents can be grouped together into teams so listings, leads and marketing can be shared among them. Leads can then be routed to different teams based on the type of routing system that is preferred. Some routing systems bring out the competition amongst agents while others are more traditional round-robin set ups.
The CRM can be integrated with other platforms so you won’t need to stop using the tools you’ve already become accustomed too. As of 8/31/18 – the REW CRM can be integrated with Zillow, dotloop, BombBomb and Happy Grasshopper.
