Reputation Management

Your reputation is everything. So how do you monitor your online reputation? Are you using Yelp, Google +, LinkedIn, Realtor.com or Zillow for reviews? Are you asking past clients and your current sphere of influence to give you recommendations? If you aren’t managing your online reputation, you should start now. According to Nielsen, 92 percent of consumers around the world say they trust earned media, such as recommendations from friends and family, above all other forms of advertising. trust-in-advertisingAnother great tool for reputation management is Google Alerts. By setting up your name, brand, and website with Google Alerts, you will be notified anytime one of these is mentioned anywhere on the web. This allows you to share the good reviews and gives you an opportunity to correct any bad ones.

What is Title Insurance?

Ever wondered why you need Title insurance when buying or selling your home? I’ll address some of the most common questions about title and share with you a video below from The Petty Team with RE/MAX DFW Associates.

So what is Title Insurance?
– An insurance policy that provides coverage for future claims or future losses due to title defects that occurred prior to your acquisition of the
property.

Why do I need Title Insurance?
– When you purchase a home, you are making what is most likely the largest investment of your lifetime. You want to be sure
it’s protected against a possible loss due to problems with the
title. In addition, title insurance also protects you against
hidden risks that are not discoverable by a search and examination of
those public records, including forgery, fraudulent impersonation, and
other errors in the records.

How much does Title Insurance cost?
– Well that all depends on the value of your property. Title insurance, unlike auto insurance, is a one time fee paid at closing.

Here is a quick video that The Petty Team put together to give you more information on Title Insurance.
