With businesses especially that have specific Geo area of influence, for real estate agents who have correctly set up their Google page and took into consideration Google Maps integration, you’ll be one of the businesses in the first top of the searches. But because of the promotion of hyper-locality, Google created categories that customize results according to proximity.

Online Reviews and Customer Feedback

Real estate companies and brokerages that have the best reviews and citations acquire more traffic as Google can show results recommending the best firms in the area. Nowadays, more and more search is going mobile allowing for more flexible search packets that rely on keywords.
