Facebook Listing Page update and other productivity features

You are taking the time to blog for business, you are trying to develop an online presence that will blow your clients and potential clients socks off.


Thumbs upAre you using Realbird? When I first saw someone here using Realbird I just had to know what it was all about. The post was a market report, and at the bottom was a Realbird search tool. I loved it! I followed the links to Realbird and signed up for a free account. I was hooked.

I hit a snag, I can't remember exactly what it was. I called Realbird and spoke with Gabe. He was so helpful, he spent so much of his time helping me to resolve the issue I hung up and quickly signed up for a full Realbird account. Under a hundred bucks for the year, it was a no brainer. Anyone who would spend so much time helping me on the phone when I had a free account deserved my business.

And if you can't afford to spend LESS than 100 bucks on marketing both your listings AND yourself, then you need to rethink your choice of professions! I tell everyone I can about Realbird.

Check out what they are NOW doing for us with Facebook!!!! Realbird is the most effective marketing tool I have in my aresenal of weapons. I know my clients love the listing flyers that are produced at minimal effort on our part.

No, this is not a paid advertisement. This is a totally unsolicited blog, I am singing the praises of Realbird because.... REALBIRD ROCKS! Give them a try and you will understand why I love Realbird, Gabe and Zoltan!!!!


Our recently launched Facebook Listing Page integration with RealBird has gained popularity pretty fast: Over 500 agents and brokers are already using it. With this new RealBird software update it is now even more convenient to manage your Facebook Listing Pages, directly from the RealBird listing management interface.

For our new readers, here is a quick recap of what the Facebook Listing Pages are all about:

With the new Facebook Open Graph API integration, you can now set up an individual Facebook Pages for your of your single property websites on RealBird and it only takes one click per listing. You can then use these Facebook Listing Pages to send property status updates to people who *Liked* your property - updates are posted on their Facebook News Feed. We have more details about this on our intro blog post: Don't forget to Like yourself - Facebook Listing Pages with RealBird

Updated Facebook Listing Page management interface

With the new interface, the Facebook Listing Management utility is right at your fingertips on the RealBird Listing Management page. Below is an example screenshot that shows just how convenient it is to manage this feature.

Just a reminder, once you set up the Facebook Listing Page, make sure you ask your seller to click the *Like* button on their single property websites so that their own Facebook sphere of influence get a polite note about the property for sale.

1) Connect your Facebook account with RealBird (one-time step and secure, we won't see your Facebook credentials)

2) Click the *Like* button to create the Facebook Listing Page. Depending your browser, you may have to refresh this page to see the Admin Page link after the initial *Like* click, from there on, it will always show

Managing Facebook Listing Pages via the Admin link

Another productivity update: filter your inventory by Listing Title and by Visibility Status

Based on some user requests, we extended the search utility on the RealBird listing management page. Besides the existing search fields, you can now filter your listing inventory by Visibility Status (Published vs Draft) and search portion of the Listing Title field. We hope that this feature will increase your productivity and will save you time while managing large inventories of active, pending and sold listings on RealBird.

Oh, I am with you now Andrea about the virtues of RealBird...I'm meeting tomorrow with a buyer who found me using the RealBird widget I post in my zip code market reports...I am so psyched about that!

But I didn't know about the Facebook Listing Widget. Hmmm...I'll have to take the time next week to try it out. Thanks for the heads up!

Andrea,  Thanks for the information.  I hadn't seen this before.  There are just so many tools out there for us.  I will put that on my list of things to explore more of, definitely.

William, it is a fantastic tool, isn't it?

Pippa, if you get stuck, they have free seminars on how to use Realbird. Or just call, they go above and beyond!

KD, you are very welcome! Realbird is my most precious find, LOL, now don't tell a million people...

Andrea, I also have a free account with Real Bird, not put too much time and effort on it, but I know they send weekly email to me about the free webinar about them with facebook.  I am currently using point2agent, I am pleased with their syndication, but they are higher than Realbird, and of course they don't link with facebook.  I am going to do some serious thinking about Real Bird, and your post just helps to push me a few more steps forward.  Thanks!

Zoltan and Gabe, I am so glad I made things a bit sunnier for you birds! Seriously, since the day I started using Realbird I have been blown away by the product and the level of service I receive. You have developed a fantastic tool to augment our business.

Rita, I love Realbird! I purchased a subscription and never once regretted it. I believe Realbird to be the best tool I have at my disposal.

Andrea, Realbird is the best! I just sent some folks the flyer on their house and they love it. I need to check out the Facebook app.

Cool! I looked at RealBird when they were primarily virtual tour but it looks like now it is time for a revisit.

Posted by Mike Saunders (Lanier Partners) over 8 years ago

Hi Andrea, I have seen a lot of it here on AR but as of yet have not investigated it. Looks like it's time to check it out.

Hey Andrea, thanks for the "Re-Blog" - I'm definitely going to be checking out Realbird - it looks like a great service.

I;m always on the look out for new "tools" and AR has got to be the best source of all.  Many thanks,


Posted by Michael Bergin, Northern Virginia Real Estate (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage - ABR - SRES ) over 8 years ago

Mike, RealBird is way more than that! As you can tell, I love it!

Ed, what? You are not using RealBird? Get cracking my friend.

Mike, you really do need to check out RealBird, it is awesome. And the level of customer service you will get it amazing.

Michael, AR does introduce us to many new tools, as well as up to date info on the market. It is just awesome. And RealBird is awesome too.

Posted by Andrea Swiedler, Realtor, Southern Litchfield County CT (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices New England Properties) over 8 years ago

I'll put RealBird in my toolbox for next time I have a listing. I must admit that I am enjoying holding open houses for other Realtors and reaping the rewards from that without having all the listing headaches.
