GARYGREENE.COM GETS AN UPDATED LOOK

As you all know by now, our website has received a new look! The hidden portal to the intranet site has changed to the rock logo in the top right corner. Your username and password have remain the same. We have added many lead capture abilities such as a CMA request, RealtorConnect, requests for homebuyer information packages, school reports, neighborhood reports and so much more!
With all of these new lead capture abilities it important now more than ever to sign up to get a text message when you receive a lead through GaryGreene.com. If you have not already done so, sign up for text messaging by emailing John Clark, jgclark@garygreene.com, with your name, office, public ID, cell phone number and cell phone company.

We are updating our technology and hope you take full advantage of it. With our new email system, new website and new premium agent website packages it is a very exciting time to be part of Prudential Gary Greene, Realtors!

REVISION TO GOLD MEDALLION PROGRAM

There have been several updates to the Gold Medallion program. First, it has received a name change to the Gold Medallion Collection. Secondly, now when you perform a property search on GaryGreene.com and come across a Gold Medallion property, there will be a Gold Medallion graphic underneath the property description making your Gold Medallion listing stand out from the other similar properties!
Finally, new Gold Medallion listings and Gold Medallion price changes will be emailed weekly to co-op agents who have participated in selling a Gold Medallion property in the past!

GREATER HOUSTON FINANCIAL INSURANCE UPDATE

Thanks to all of the Gary Greene agents and managers who are supporting GHFS with their referrals for insurance. We are in the process of revising our website so that each of our insurance agents will have his or her own webpage. Real estate agents will have the option of linking to an insurance agent's website. More news to follow.
