About Our Service
Does your real estate website appear in the major search engines? If
not, you're missing out on serious amounts of web traffic and thousands
of dollars in lost transactions. Research confirms that over 90%
of home buyers use the Internet as their first source to search for
real estate information. The major search engines are usually the
first place people conduct a search. If your website isn't found on
the first few pages of the major search engines, it'll be like finding
a needle in a haystack.
Search engine positioning is an
ongoing process. Real Estate Surfing uses proven methods to continuously
promote our search engine friendly pages to the major search engines
to ensure optimum placement. These methods include manual submissions
to key search engines and directories, link popularity, and keyword
Spending time and money on your website but not having
it found by those searching for it on the Internet is like spending
thousands of dollars on a designer suit but never ever taking it out
of the closet! Who'd want to do that?
The search engines are a real estate professional's
best friend as they produce targeted traffic. Think about it for a second
-- you're attracting prospects who are searching for "your-town
real estate". The only other method that comes close is advertising
in the local newspaper but think of the cost, plus the paper's only
good for a few days before it's recycled.
Even if you advertise your website in the paper, no
one's likely to remember your domain name. Instead, when they sit down
at their computer, they will type in "your-town real estate".
And dont forget about out-of-towners who dont get the local
paper. To sum up, top search engine positions create targeted prospects
around the clock for far less than traditional advertising costs.
Aside from exposure, Real Estate Surfing acts as an
exclusive referral network. With just one agent per area, our
members can confidently exchange referrals with each other on a regular
basis. This in itself is well worth the membership fee. You will also
receive a monthly newsletter loaded with tips and techniques to increase
your online real estate business and free year round Internet consulting.
Membership -- $97 set-up &
$35 per month
Our service is available to only one real estate
agent per area so you're guaranteed exclusivity. Your listing includes
your photo, company logo, a description of your services, contact
info and a link to your website. There's a one time charge of $97
to get you set-up and a $35 monthly fee. Any additional changes
or updates you require (ie. new photo, changing a cell phone number)
are done for free. Best of all, there's no contract so you're
able to cancel at anytime.
This isn't just another website but rather a page
which is continuously submitted to the major search engines linking
directly to your site. There's simply no other service that
even comes close to what we have to offer! This investment
will likely pay for itself many times over. There's only one
spot available on a first come, first served exclusive basis so
hurry and secure your position before your competition does.

"I've had a personal web site for almost 2
years now and enjoyed very little success with it. Since joining
Real Estate Surfing, it's been like somebody turned on a switch.
The lead generation from my web site has gone from between 2 and
5 hits a month to a good lead almost every single day. I can directly
attribute over $10,000 in earned commissions to Real estate Surfing
already this year and it's only May! Thanks Russ for solving the
mystery of web site performance, it's the best $35 a month I've
Chuck Gulyas - Remax Real Estate
Lethbridge, Alberta -- 1.800.883.2801
"Real Estate Surfing has allowed me to grow
my Internet business by helping to promote my website which has
produced a steady stream of excellent leads ever since I joined.
I monitor where my business comes from and am happy to report that
many of the leads have turned into sales! This would not have been
possible had it not been for your directory!"
Ruth Bowes - Royal LePage Royal City Realty
Rockwood, Ontario -- 905.691.5058
"I have been receiving many leads from my website
lately and after a little detective work, I realize it is all because
of you!!!! I don't know what you have done, but somehow your link
to my site has been popping up near the top of the list. I've written
two contracts this month from internet leads and will probably be
writing another in the next few days. Whatever it is that you are
doing...it is working! Thanks a bunch."
Jane Davis - Prudential Carolina Real Estate
Wilmington, North Carolina -- 910.256.0032
"I was very skeptical when I first joined your
directory but I have to say that your service has given me many
excellent leads which have turned into pay cheques! I would recommend
anyone who is contemplating this to "go for it". It has
generated a lot of business this year for me and I am very happy
with the results!!!"
Michelle Makos - Sutton Heritage Realty
Pickering, Ontario -- 416.300.3004
"I have had a tremendous year and while I work
a very good referral business, your magic with the website has kicked
me into overdrive. I've already had closings from website leads,
have several more scheduled and I am working with many others who
plan on buying later on this year. I am getting new leads almost
daily at this point and have had to hire an assistant! I
really cant thank you enough for the boost you have given
my business. I intend to be a client for a very long time. Please
feel free to use me as a reference as I would love to tell anyone
else about my experience."
Phyllis Brown - York Simpson Underwood
Durham, North Carolina -- 1-866-499-0779
"When I started my career in real estate 3
years ago, my goal was to do as much of my business online as possible.
Since signing up with you, my leads have increased dramatically!
I have received 8 "serious" leads in the past 12 days!
These are leads where I did not make a phone call or knock on anyones
door....they were leads that came to me via my website! All I can
say is...thank you...thank you...thank you! Because of you, my dream
of doing business online has now become a reality!"
Maureen L. Marsiglio - Royal LePage North
Newmarket, Ontario -- 1-866-773-9595
"I signed up with Real Estate Surfing last
year. It worked so well that I soon after added the Vernon spot
as well. Since last October, I can trace at least 6 transactions
to Real Estate Surfing and I'm working with several more prospects
who will likely soon turn into clients!"
Bo Skapski - Century 21 Assurance Realty
Kelowna, British Columbia -- 250.869.0101
The Real Estate Surfing directory has been an invaluable tool
when it comes to driving traffic to my website. I can directly attribute
several transactions to this service and will gladly recommend it
to other real estate agents. Keep up the great work Russ!"
Rob Golfi - REMAX Escarpment Realty
Hamilton, Ontario -- 905.979.2640
"I received 3 calls last week from people who
found me first while searching for "windsor real estate".
One of them ended up buying the second home I showed them (it closes
in just 3 weeks). This is business I would never had were it not
for my positioning on the web! Many are moving from out of town
and appreciate the assistance in smoothing out the details. This
is ad $,s well spent. Way to go Russ for providing such good value.
As of the end of June, I'm half way to doubling my sales volume."
JoAnne Muegge - Remax Preferred Realty
Windsor, Ontario -- 1.800.565.5955
"I just wanted to take a moment to pass on
a big thank you for helping my website reach top status. Without
the help of Real Estate Surfing, my website would be like most of
the other agents out there -- no where to be found! Thanks so much
for helping me build my online business."

anything so soon. Appreciate your efforts, especially on a holiday
Anne Russ - RETIRED
"Just a short note to thank you for keeping
me in the top of the list on the web search. I had an inquire this
weekend from a client that was impressed that I came up as #1 on
the list under Wasaga Beach real estate. As you know, email and
website information is critical today, and I thank you for helping
to improve my business."

"Man am I kicking myself for not latching onto
you when you fist contacted me a couple of years ago. I figured I
could do it myself back then as I was likely more computer aware than
anyone in our office. I figured it was a scam. Only one agent allowed
-- yeah right. My co-worker took the plunge and I challenged her by
calling you the next day to sign up. You said I was too late. Only
one agent per region and now I am eating crow. LOL. Needless to say,
she gets more hits and contacts than I ever dreamed possible. She
has made quite a few sales from her site while smartass me gets nothing
from my web page but a tax write off. I commend you on your success
and the success you are bringing to your roster. I have just finished
reading your newsletter and I am looking forward to future publications.
As you know from being in this racket, we all know what we are suppose
to do, we just need reminders now and then."
