Lead Generation That Works!

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices recently released a national video just for agents who are a part of the BHHS Network! It discusses the fantastic suite of digital channels available to increase lead generation. It also introduces REsource Center, and the various tools agents can use to organize and communicate with contacts and clients. Plus, now more than ever, clients can easily navigate real estate properties in our markets via the BHHS website, driving traffic and leads straight to our agents. This technology and support from the top will be invaluable to us at the local level.
