Space Coast Association of REALTORS® to launch Find Services™ Directory for the Melbourne/ Merritt Island Area

The Space Coast Find Services™ Directory will help REALTORS® and consumers quickly and easily find pre-vetted businesses to help with their home and family needs.

The Find Services Directory is available on participating REALTOR® SavvyCards.

The Space Coast Find Services Directory will be available on every Space Coast REALTOR®’s electronic business card, which they and their customers use every day.

July 19th, 2016 – Melbourne, FL – Space Coast Association of REALTORS® today announced its plans to release the Space Coast Find Services™ Directory, a mobile-friendly online listing of local businesses (like plumbers, electricians, lawn care, pet sitting, etc.) that homeowners – and REALTORS® – often need before, during and after a real estate sale, and as part of everyday life.

Space Coast is producing the Directory in partnership with SavvyCard®, a St. Petersburg software company that also supplies Space Coast’s REALTOR® members with electronic business cards and referral marketing software. The release date is scheduled for October of this year.

The Find Services Directory will be available on the electronic business cards of all 3,700+ Space Coast REALTOR® members and on mobile listing sheets for the 12,000+ homes the association’s members sell every year, and it will be promoted locally to consumers through online and traditional advertising. Anyone will be able to access the Directory and all the companies in it through a standard web URL, and special “share” buttons included with the Directory make it easy to share with other people, even through social media.

The Find Services Directory contains over 120 categories, so REALTORS® and their customers can always find what they need.

Users can use keywords or categories to search for providers they need. Every provider gets their own Electronic Business Card in the directory so customers can contact them from the search results list, with a single tap.

“We’re really excited to bring the Find Services Directory to our area,” says Leah Selig, CEO of Space Coast Association of REALTORS®. “Both our REALTORS® and their customers are always on the lookout for great, honest companies that do exceptional work, and this tool will allow us to aggregate them all in one place. Finding one you need and reaching out to them will be literally as simple as tapping a button.”

Any local business can apply to be included the directory, but businesses will be turned away if they don’t pass a robust vetting process that includes credit checks, criminal background checks, Better Business Bureau rating checks, online review analysis, and insurance and license checks.

The strict vetting process is to keep the directory full of companies that meet high quality standards and provide a useful tool for REALTORS® and consumers alike.

Interested businesses can apply for inclusion in the Directory via an online form, or call (321) 351-0601. Spaces are limited to 5 businesses a category and are reserved on a first-come, first serve basis.

A tip for keeping appliances (and unreasonable clients) from blowing up your real estate closing

(This is a super helpful tip for all our REALTOR users.)

While this might sound super specific and particularly picky, it’s important to make sure buyers and sellers are honest about the working condition of appliances just before a closing. It’s not unheard of for a deal to fall apart because the buyer claims that awesome range they fell in love with suddenly isn’t working the day of a walk-through, and the buyer demands it be fixed or that they be refunded the repair cost at closing, while the seller claims it was working fine when they moved out and refuses to budge.

Stuff of nightmares, right?

Heed this little tip from Brian Brown, of Old Republic Home Protection and avoid unnecessary deal breakers:

“When doing a walk thru just before closing (especially if a warranty is in place) take a picture of appliances working, like the thermostat showing that the A/C is cooling the home. Also take a picture of the water heater and the outside A/C unit. That way if they call in a claim the first couple of days we have evidence that it was working at closing. We never want to hear the item never worked for the buyer.”

A simple solution for making sure everything goes smoothly! It’s always awesome to get real world tips from the wise voice of reason, and Brian is indeed that.

As a special bonus, if you’re a Florida Realtor, give Brian a call or shoot him an email to learn how to get more referrals and sales through his company!

The SavvyCard for Brian Brown - Old Republic Home Protection

Give Brian a call to get more referrals and sales from his company, and learn more helpful real estate and home warranty tips.

SavvySpotlight: If You Think Blinds are Just for Windows, Think Again!

When people hear the word “Blind” in home furnishing conversations, most envision the typical Venetian, Mini or Vertical style of blind that are installed in windows to keep exterior heat and harmful UV rays out and to provide a measure of privacy for the inhabitants inside. And the popularity of these types of blinds is rightfully earned: These three styles are unquestionably the most ubiquitous types of blinds found in the windows of American homes.

But, as you’re about to find out, Blinds come in many other styles, shapes, sizes and materials, and can actually be amazingly versatile interior design elements that work in places other than windows. They can be used as room partitions, space definers, and even as focal pieces of art.

Room Separators

Ceiling Hung Blinds

It doesn’t take much imagination to envision placing a rail on a ceiling across an expanse of room you’d like to separate, and then hanging blinds from it so that they can be pulled out and pushed back as needed. This is functional and more versatile than building a wall or half wall, and more cost effective than installing large pocket or French doors. Hanging blinds from a ceiling rail provides a useful way of taking a large space and creating a multipurpose area that easily transitions from day to night, from family space to entertaining space, from public space to private space, indeed from any type of use to another, whenever the need arises.

Room-Separator-Blind

Traditional vertical blinds can be used to create multi-functional living spaces.

Using hanging blinds to separate living areas doesn’t mean you have to use vertical slat type blinds, either. They can be paneled and sliding, stationary and folding, or panels of hanging beads or other interesting material that make a bold design statement.

Room-separator-blind

Stained rattan panel blinds create a modern, organic feel and separate a lounge area from the main living room in a city flat.

 

room_separator_blind3

Crisp, canvas panels with nautical inspired grommets separate a bedroom and den area on the finished attic floor of an ocean side retreat, providing privacy when people visit, but allowing 360 degree views when the bedroom is not in use.

Non-Ceiling Hung Blinds

There are other ways to partition rooms with blinds besides hanging them from the ceiling. You can hang blinds from mobile pieces of furniture, like wardrobe racks, and move them to different positions as needed, or hang them from windowpanes you install (either permanently or on mobile frames) between living areas so you get the illusion of an open space that can be “blinded” and made private. Windowpanes give the added benefit of sound dampening, too.

Non-Ceiling-Blind

A fabric panel blind hung from a rolling wardrobe provides a mobile and visually interesting partition in a workspace that separates the children’s area from the adult’s area.

Non-Ceiling-Blind2

A hanging wood frame with wooden mini-blinds acts as a lightweight wall separating the dinette area from the main living area in an antique church-turned-residence. The blinds can be pulled to provide full opacity between the living areas.

Space Definers

Blinds can also be used to define and emphasize specific spaces within larger open areas. For example, you can completely envelope a dining or bedroom area in a soft expanse of gauze like, semi-sheer fabric, creating an intimacy and elegance that is missing when the space is left undefined. You can define a wardrobe area with sumptuous velvet panels to create instant luxury, or a dinette area with sunny green linen panels to create a fresh, inviting garden feel, or a library with dark wood shutters to create a classic, academic ambiance. Defining spaces with artfully placed blinds of appropriate style and material is especially striking in loft and open-concept type layouts, where one area often bleeds into another without much differentiation.

Space-Definer_Blind1

White acrylic blind panels separate a reading area from the dining area in a restored brick warehouse loft condo, and echo the pattern of the antique window panes in the background.

Space-Definer-Blind2

Weighted fabric mini-panels create an inviting and somewhat ethereal visual experience in the middle of an otherwise sparse work space.

Pieces of Art

Because blinds have large continuous areas when extended or closed, they can be used as canvases for striking pieces of art that can create instant style and mood in a room. When placed in a window or in front of other light sources, the canvas can even appear “backlit” during the day and provide an enhanced experience.

Art_Blind

A printed roller shade goes from “blah” to “amazing” with stylistic garden art and provides a visual focal piece for the entire room.

Finding a Good Blind Supplier

While many companies provide blinds, not all companies understand how to use them to create the types of smart, design-inspired solutions that add utility, convenience and ambiance to an interior space. When you look for a blind provider, you’ll want to ensure they have interior design know-how and can show you examples of how they’ve used blinds to artfully transform an interior.

Room-by-Room-Interiors-Rick-Mitman

If you happen to live in the Tampa/St. Pete area of Florida, call Rick Mitman at Room by Room Design Service. They offer interior design expertise that includes creative use of blinds (and drapes) and can additionally source furniture, fixtures and other interior pieces to create a truly inspiring indoor space.  They even offer complimentary in-house consultations.

If you live outside of Tampa/St. Pete, search the web for “Blind Installation and Design Services” to find businesses that can help with your needs.

Increase Trusted Referrals

Trusted Referrals are The Most Powerful Marketing Tool, Period. So Why Aren’t You Tracking and Leveraging Them?

Love_SavvyCard_ReferralsGreat networkers know which of their contacts are sending them great referrals, and they cultivate those connections to grow their businesses. Some companies use robust online referral systems like Ambassador to reward partners who refer new customers over the Internet and through their websites. That kind of focused effort can be a good online business booster, but it doesn’t apply to people who are offline and simply talking to other people – either on the phone, in an email or face-to-face – when making an actual referral. And as you know, that’s how lots of referrals actually happen.

SavvyCards have a built a referral tracking system that tracks these “word-of-mouth” referrals. When you give your SavvyCard to someone and show them how to forward it to someone else using the “Share” button, you are essentially handing them a referral tracking device. Every time anyone refers you using your SavvyCard, you’ll know who passed the referral, to whom they referred you, when they did it – and even why they shared your information. Armed with this information, you can reach back out to people who referred you to thank and reward them, ensuring they will continue to do so, and you can follow up in real-time with the people they referred you to so you can start building your relationship and increase the chances of converting them into a loyal customer.

Strengthen Your Connections with SavvyCard Analytics

Tracking your SavvyCard referrals is easy. First, log in to your SavvyCard account at SavvyCard.com (look for the “Log In” button to the far right). Then click on “Card Analytics” next to the card you’d like to track.

You’ll see something like this:

de_page

At the top, the Card Analytics page shows the total number of times your card has been shared. Then a table shows each individual share, with the name of the person who referred you, and the person who received the card. You’ll also see a “Top 5 Sharers” list, showing you how many times your card has been shared by each referrer in the last 30 days. This is a great way to quickly see who’s doing the most to get the word out about you.

Turn Referrals into Business

SavvyCard doesn’t automatically generate referrals – like any tool, you have to know how to use it. Here’s a simple but effective strategy.

1. Give all of your contacts your SavvyCard. Start with your most trusted supporters and loyal customers.

2. Teach them how to share it. Show them how simple it is to send your SavvyCard to other people via email, text and even by QR code reader. Explain that they can show other people how to share it, too.

3. Reward your referrers. First and foremost, be generous with referrals yourself. But you can also give them a more substantive reward – a discount, a bonus, compensation, or a free product: “I pay 10% back on the business that people refer to me.”

4. Show your generosity. Everywhere. A referral reward system only works when people know about it, right? Use your blog, email newsletter, and print literature to tell everyone that you want their referrals – and that you’ll reward them.

Savvycard’s referral tracking makes it a completely unique meeting point between the digital world and the power of meaningful, trusted referrals. Get out there and make the most of it!

SavvyCard® Launches Space Coast Association of REALTORS® on its SavvyCard for Associations Pro™ Platform

SavvyCard for Associations Pro provides a suite of mobile tools for REALTORS®, their customers  and home service providers that helps facilitate referrals and boosts local business.

SavvyCard® today announced that it has launched its SavvyCard for Associations Pro™ product for the Space Coast Association of REALTORS® (SCAR) located in Melbourne, FL.

SavvyCard for Associations Pro is a suite of mobile-friendly websites, or “SavvyCards®”, that are auto-generated for an association’s REALTORS, affiliate businesses, and MLS listings. It was designed to facilitate new business among association members and increase non-dues revenue for the association.

Screen Shot 2016-04-12 at 6.53.58 AM

REALTORS® and affiliates can use their SavvyCards to generate leads, track referrals, capture contact information, and market products and services online to consumers. Consumers can use SavvyCards to search for real estate agents, home service providers, and properties for sale.

REALTORS® and affiliates can use their SavvyCards to generate leads, track referrals, capture contact information, and market products and services online to consumers. Consumers can use SavvyCards to search for real estate agents, home service providers, and properties for sale.

The platform allows the association, brokerage, and individual agents to custom brand their SavvyCards, increasing online brand equity and strengthening direct relationships with consumers.

This marks the 4th real estate association in Florida to launch the SavvyCard for Associations product, and the 1st to deploy the Pro version, which includes interactive, consumer-friendly Property SavvyCards™ for every listing in the MLS. REALTORS® use Property SavvyCards to “crowd market” properties, as they are easily sharable on Social Media and can be tracked as they are shared from person-to-person.

SCAR’s decision to deploy a mobile software solution for its membership and local consumers is in response to increased competitive pressures from online technology companies whose software applications disrupt traditional relationships between consumers, real estate agents, and service providers.

“Traditionally, the role of connecting consumers, REALTORS®, and home service providers together has belonged to associations and brokerages,” states Leah Selig, CEO of Space Coast Association of REALTORS®. “In the last decade, we’ve worked hard to compete successfully against tech companies who are trying to remove associations and brokerages from the picture. We chose to work with SavvyCard because their platform offers a white labeled, end-to-end solution that provides significant value to buyers, sellers, agents, and service providers, and because their business model aligns with our goals. It’s a unique approach that leverages and strengthens the relationships that already exist, and benefits everyone involved.”

“Our agreement with Space Coast validates SavvyCard’s belief that tech companies which strive to align the interests of current stakeholders in the real estate industry will eventually win over those companies that seek to disrupt it,” states David Etheredge, CEO of SavvyCard. “SavvyCard’s products provide value to association and brokerage members while rewarding Real Estate organizations such as associations, brokerages, and multiple listing services fair compensation for the valuable consumer channel the industry has worked hard to build and maintain.”

SCAR will generate non-dues revenue from SavvyCard for Associations™ by revenue-sharing with SavvyCard on paid upgrades to user accounts and through deployment of the Find Services Directory. The Find Services Directory is an association-branded, searchable, mobile directory of local home service providers who pay to be listed and must pass a rigorous vetting process. REALTOR® members and participating providers distribute this directory to local buyers and sellers to help them find businesses for their real estate transaction and home improvement needs.

The SCAR Find Services Directory is currently taking space reservations from interested local service providers and will launch later this year.
