Buyers often think of our website as the Zillow of Franklin TN real estate. When you click on the links to our website provided by Google, you will be taken to Franklin Homes Realty LLC's website and have the ability to search for properties, save favorite listings and even request a showing.

This morning, we received a request from a buyer who wanted to see four houses. I called him right away to schedule a buyer's consultation prior to showing properties. He was surprised, "Did all those showing requests go to you? I thought your website was like Zillow and I would be contacted by four different real estate agents."

I explained our website shows every house listed in our multiple listing service. As of today that includes 8,701 active home listings. We've made it easy for consumers to find the properties they want and then schedule showings quickly directly from our site. I also explained these were not all our listings but I could show him any property he found in a search as his buyer's agent.

First, it's never good to meet directly with a listing agent. Remember, they work for the sellers. It's their job to negotiate the best terms and price for the sellers. Plus, you don't want them to know anything about you prior to writing an offer.

Second, your agent is getting paid to represent you through the process. You should be contacting them directly to arrange all showings for you.  

I told him when a request is sent through Zillow to schedule a showing, that information is rarely passed on to the listing agent. Instead, Zillow takes that information and sells it to hungry real estate agents. Have you ever wondered how Zillow actually makes their money? It's by selling your contact information to people like me.

Unfortunately, Zillow sells that information to several different agents. Basically, anyone who is willing to pay for your name, phone number and email address.

You should know, we never buy consumer contact information from Zillow or any other source. We don't have to. We have outdone Zillow by becoming the best website real estate source for Franklin Tennessee. What does that mean to you?

It means you can search for homes in the entire Nashville area on our website, www.FranklinHomesRealty.com. Once you find a home, you can request a showing right from our site. You won't hear from several different agents who bought your information. You'll hear from one agent, me, Tammie White, the Principal Broker/Owner of Franklin Homes Realty LLC.

I can then meet with you to discuss your needs so we can begin your home search. No need to use Zillow ever again. Besides, Zillow's information isn't accurate. Not all the properties in our area are syndicated to Zillow. I can guarantee that every home listing is available on our website because we have a direct feed from our multiple listing service, Realtracs.  

Many consumers don't fully understand what they are clicking on when they perform a Google search. If you peruse www.FranklinHomesRealty.com, you will find a wealth of information. When you send an email or request a showing, it will come directly to me. I will be happy to help you find a home.

While it's flattering for you to think of our website www.FranklinHomesRealty.com as the Franklin TN Zillow, be assured we are so much more than that.
