New virtual tours and a must have seller emailing tool. RealBird updates.

We launched a few new features last week and those are generally available now for all RealBird members:

Seller Emailing Tool: A must have for listing marketing

From the member area, you can now easily forward your listing websites and virtual tour to you sellers, asking them to forward the email to their friends, family and colleagues. You are not only demonstrating your marketing efforts to your sellers - which in itself is very important - but you may also utilize their network for listing marketing. And because all these RealBird email templates are private labeled with your photo and contact information, you will also reach larger audience with your brand and hence generating more referral business.

There are preset templates that you can customize for Just Listed, For Sale, For Rent, Coming Soon, Open House, Just Sold etc. so it truly takes only seconds to forward your listing to your seller. Links in these email templates are also tagged with Google Analytics campaign parameters automatically, so you can track the effectiveness of these emails.

Seller Email Tool

New, branded virtual tours

The new, branded virtual tours build on the popular unbranded version. They are automatically created for your listings on RealBird for your for-sale, for-rent, pending and also for sold properties.

RealBird Virtual Tour

Check them out. View them for your existing listings on RealBird or publish new listings today.

Updated listing forwarding tool on the single property websites

Listing forwarding by consumers from your RealBird property websites and virtual tours are now also branded with your photo and contact information, just like with the seller emailing member tool. This is an update of the existing forwarding tool on the property websites and virtual tours, but with the modern, pretty HTML templates including your information, it is a much better utility now helping you create referral business while marketing a current property.

Let us know what you think of these new features. We always appreciate your feedback.

See some of  Janie's previous course members  speak for her amazing course:


Frederique LeForestier - ONE Sotheby’s International Realty: "Janie’s course is a real booster for any Realtor who wants to take his/her business to the next level but does not know where to start and how to do it. I’ve tried different coaching programs and trainings but nothing like this. On top of being an exceptional, authentic and genuine human being who anybody can relate to, she really has at heart to see you succeed. The program she developed is based on her own experience and unparallel results in only a few months.Definitely the best investment I’ve ever made in my real estate career. It’s easy to follow and extremely well rounded. You can do it at your own rhythm too.Thank You Janie for who you are and for truly sharing your expertise! A rare find in our profession!"


Amit Bhuta - ONE Sotheby’s International Realty: "As a luxury real estate agent for ONE Sotheby’s International Realty, I'm constantly getting marketed to. Many companies promise you the world and you end up with zero or minimal benefits. I've spent over $50,000 on useless services in my thirteen years of selling real estate. So needless to say, I'm now extremely picky what time choose to invest in. Because of the amount of training I've done to better my real estate career, I'm almost always disappointed after attending a training session because I didn't learn anything. With that said, Janie's training was absolutely priceless. There are countless takeaways from her course and you learn something almost immediately. I would highly recommend her training to anyone that wants to make a seven figures. You won’t be disappointed. Mark my words and thank me later."


Pam Dent - Gayle Harvey Real Estate Inc., Director, Charlottesville Area Association of Realtors (CAAR): "I highly recommend Janie Coffey’s new course, 12 Week Launch Program to Luxury Real Estate. This is 12 weeks that are packed with all the information that you need to take your business to the next level and move up into the world of luxury real estate. Janie has been extremely open and unselfish in her willingness to share exactly what she did in order to achieve success. Even if you were to follow only half of what she teaches I am sure that you will see positive changes in your business. I have learned so many things that I am working on incorporating into all aspects of how I approach my business. I have not seen another course that is as comprehensive and well organized. This is a game changer!"


Next course starts tomorrow on Dec 1, sign up today!


Shelly Northern - Compass: "REALTORS! Wanting to boost your business into more luxury? I just took Janie’s course and it really is amazing, you’re going to learn so much!I am still going over all the videos as there is way too much information to take in by watching only once! You will learn how to handle luxury listings, special tools for the luxury market.. objection handling, marketing (my downfall!) and a LOT more.This is a course for all agents not just seasoned ones!  HIGHLY recommend! You're welcome!"


Jacqueline Cabrera - ONE Sotheby’s International Realty: "Janie Inspires is an understatement!  The workshop instruction throughout the entire series was extremely insightful. After so many years in real estate, I feel that I have learned so much more in twelve weeks, than I did in years. Her extensive knowledge in strategies for getting business was very practical and even some strategies were new to me. Her portfolio and collection of marketing materials is second to none.  I really enjoyed watching the videos that showed all these products. I’m going back to all the videos for second viewings, since I want to make sure I take it all in.  I know that putting into practice the skills and techniques I learned in this course will definitely help take my career confidently to a new level.  Thank you Janie for the wealth of knowledge and information. Keep inspiring!"


Madeleine Romanello - Compass: "I found your luxury course to be life changing. Not only did you motivate me to put in place a plan to execute working expireds, and working my sphere more heavily, you also gave a perfectly executed step-by-step course and all the parts of it in detail so that I didn't have to even think about it, I just need to put what I learned in place.Not only is this course excellent for someone looking to get into the luxury market, it’s excellent for someone who is looking to relocate and start their business in another city and should be a must get course for anyone new in the business as all of this can be applied to even a more bread and butter market.You filled a gap in all the real estate courses out there as I’ve never seen in 20 years in business anything as comprehensive, seamless and real. Plus you lived it, you demonstrated it, so everyone case rest assured that it works.Thank you for everything!"


Ashley Lombardo - Treasure Coast Sotheby’s International Realty: "I just finished up with an amazing luxury class put on by Janie.  I found her course to be invaluable.  I have worked for a luxury broker for many years but didn’t know what I could do to separate myself from other agents and how to go above client experience and expectations. Janie taught me how I can do it all!  From product awareness to the little touches, Janie covers everything! Do yourself and your business a favor, sign up today!"

Isaiah Coffey - Keller Williams: "I just recently took Janie Coffey's course "12 Week Launch Program to Luxury Real Estate" and I must say that it has been one of the most informative and eye-opening classes that I have taken to-date. We learned the mindset that one must have to work with the wealthy, the strategies to implement with regard to obtaining the listing, servicing the listing and how to budget (e.g. marketing, unexpected expenses, etc.) in between deals while working solely within the luxury market. The best part about this training course is that it isn't taught from theory, but rather from the personal experience of one of the most successful luxury specialist in the nation: Janie Coffey. To purchase access to her course is not an expense; it's an investment into yourself that will payoff in the near future as long as your follow the steps that she lays out. You shouldn't have to read reviews to decide whether or not you should buy the course... invest in yourself by enrolling within Janie Coffey's luxury course - and you will see a profitable return internally and externally!"


Maggie Rose March - Premiere Plus Realty: "I have had great success with everything I’ve implemented from what I’ve learned in the course."


Kathy Akel - Watson Realty: "Janie – Is One of “the” best Effective  Trainers/ Mentor in the Industry  She presented a special energy and expertise that cannot be matched.  Her 12 week “Beta” program has  helped me to be the best I  can be and made such an impact on my personal and business life. Janie Coffey thanks again for all you do  and I pray that God keeps you Happy and Healthy in the coming Years. Now that we are in the same city, hopefully we will cross paths or do several cross sales.


There is still time to join the Janie's course, but you have to act today!

P.S. If I can do this, so can you! You have what it takes! Don’t waste another minute of your life making up excuses about why you are not living the life of your dreams, take action now:



Generate new opportunities with Pending Sale and Just Sold landing pages

We just released two real estate landing pages for your properties on RealBird. When you update your listing to Pending or Sold on RealBird, two new landing page types become available: Pending Sale and Just Sold, respectively.

You can use these landing pages in email announcements, social media posts and geotargeted Facebook ads as an announcement to neighbors, to name a few options


Just log in to RealBird or sign up if you are new to the service and the landing pages are ready to be used from the member area. 

We hope you like these new features.

Landing pages + Facebook ads = Neighborhood leads

Here is one of our favorite and easiest marketing checklists for reaching the neighbors of your current listing and for effectively capturing their attention and their contact information in order to win more listings in the area.
Here are the simple steps:
  1. Enter your listing on RealBird and upload the photos
  2. Share your automatically generated landing page link (For Sale or Just Listed) on your Facebook Page
  3. Write a custom call-for-action text above the shared link, something like the example below
  4. Once posted on Facebook, boost the post as a Facebook ad
  5. Make sure you create a custom audience for the ad, as described below
  6. Run the ad with whatever budget you can afford, but at least for 7 days, so that you have a good weekly distribution of impressions
Call-for-action text to add above the link on Facebook

Curious to learn what your neighbor is selling their house for?
Click for INSTANT ACCESS to price, all photos and property details.

Neighborhood audience
For this kind of Facebook ads, you want to select a very focused audience. I am making the assumption that the subject property is a residential, single family home for sale. For the custom audience for this boosted post select the following:
  1. Enter the full address of the subject property and select a small radius, e.g. 1 or 2 miles
  2. Select "People who live in this location" (which will include the radius around the address of course)
  3. In detailed targeting, select Homeowners as shown below in the demographics category
Facebook Audience
That's it. Within a few minutes, you have your neighborhood ad running on Facebook utilizing the new RealBird Lead Capture Landing Pages.
Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions and of course, we love to hear your success stories of using the new landing pages.
