When asked what REALTOR.ca tool he values most, grand prize winner Jeremy Osborne said, “My email leads are great. I can check that my contact details are accurate and feel confident that I am not missing opportunities to connect with a potential buyer.”

Sherry Clark, one our weekly winners, shares how she uses another popular REALTOR.ca tool.

“Listing Statistics give me more tools to work with my clients. For example, if there are lots of listing views but no calls or emails then we can look into possible changes we can make to the listing. Or, if we change the price, I can see how it affects the views.”
