You may have heard us talking about our public facing MLS website called CTReal.com. The site has been in existence since 2008, but since the redesign in 2010, it has been picking up a steady stream of Connecticut real estate traffic.
This is, of course, good news for the site, but it is even better news for you as a member of the Connecticut MLS. More traffic to the site has begun translating to more leads for you which means more business and hopefully more sales. This is all wonderful news, but how can you tell when a lead comes through from CTReal.com to know that it is “for real?”
Here are a couple of ways to tell that the e-mail coming through from CTReal.com is truly a lead and something you should follow-up on.
1.) The e-mail will be coming from firstname.lastname@example.org – if you see this e-mail address as the sender, you know it’s a legitimate e-mail from us. The reason we are using a gmail address is to avoid being blocked by spam filters, so a lead that is contacting you doesn’t get held up in your spam folder.
2.) The footer of the message will read, “Courtesy of: CT MLS, Inc – www.ctreal.com”
Here is a screenshot of what the e-mail will look like when it comes through to you, so you can be 100% sure that it is a legitimate e-mail from CTReal.com.
