Get started with Tricia and her team right away...
"I have had several sites over the 30+ years I have been in the business. I went with Pro Step Marketing back three years ago and my only regret is that I did not go with them sooner. In this age of instant communication, if you are not a significant presence on the web in your market you will be left behind. I agree with Linda about starting with the very most you can afford and adding to each year. My print budget has gone to almost zero because I get more impact, better leads and more leads by concentrating on my web presence.
My advice to you is get started with Tricia and her team right away and don’t look back. The future is ahead of you and it looks great for those who dare to be better than their competition."
"I have been using the system for over 5+ years . I put my web address on all of my marketing materials which drives traffic to the website. I am getting my leads organically. Pro Step Marketing's SEO has gotten me great placement! I would guess that I would attribute $75,000 to $100,000 to it. It's a great system! I recommend that you just do it!"
"You guys are so awesome, the site is fab and I can't get over it. We are currently working on the Young Team TV part.. check it out, let me know what you think. Also, if you google anything about Cleveland Real estate in the search engines,we are at the top! LOL I think we're even above Realtor.com. It's absolutely crazy! Just wanted to say how great you guys are for really spending so much extra time with us, so please let them know how grateful we are for them. Even my mom is really into it. We have a lot to learn still but we are in the process of completely making this a mega site! Anyway, just can't say enough how pleased we are with you guys! Send everyone our love."

Since I have decided to go with Pro Step ....
"Since I have decided to go with Pro Step I have received so many compliments on my website. I no longer fear giving out my business card with my website address on it. I am so proud of it! Pro Step’s back office is so easy to use a “caveman could do it.” Seriously, I mean it! The editing features are awesome- If I want to add a picture or page, it takes minutes. They also have a team behind the scenes who are only a phone call away. Another advantage I have found is that they have already created auto-responders for us, for buyers, sellers and foreclosure leads! Any new lead that fills out a contact form, are automatically added to the list! They have created stealth sites for their clients… the list goes on! I have had unbelievable results, I would be glad to share some tips of how I use ProStep to better my business and find more clients!! Thank you Pro Step Marketing! "
"We can not thank Pro Step Marketing enough for their work on branding our team and creating our website. They have created such a special and original site that has created a tremedous buzz about our real estate team! Our site is not only extremely tasteful, but also functional and effective. Our clients and prospective clients personally love the Young Team TV feature and following us on our on-site blog. The team at Pro Step Marketing is very helpful and insightful as they always follow up promptly and are always there for us if we have a question. We don't consider Tricia, Kurt and the rest of the team business associates, we consider them family! "

Pro Step Marketing created an awesome website for the Phillips Realty Group.
"It's engaging, professional, and we have gotten many comments from visitors. Any customer service issues have been handled in a timely manner. Whenever there have been questions on how we could change something, they have spent time on the phone walking us through the processes. I highly recommend their services!"
I have had better results with Pro Step Marketing doing my website than any other company I have ever used and I am in Top Position on the search engines!
“Pro Step Marketing is the Ritz Carlton of service and results. Other companies are like the Holiday Inn. Not that there is anything wrong with Holiday Inn, but if you can get in on the ground floor and grow then it’s the way to go. Tricia and her team created my logo and brand as well as my website. I rank Naturally on Google and I get results.”
"So when faced with the daunting task of a website I had to have someone that would hold my hand, get me a great site that was easy to use, and make it look super! I got all of that with Pro Step Marketing. And the best thing was they were sooo patient in helping me learn how to make it rise in the search engines! I love Pro Step Marketing and you will too!"
Pro Step Marketing has created a 5 Star website...
"Pro Step Marketing has created a 5 Star website for the top notch real estate entrepreneur. They have made a first class looking website that is easy for the non-techy person to make changes to. I have owned several websites and Pro Step Marketing's is by far the best!!"
The site is so easy to update. We have full control over everything and don't have to wait for someone to make updates for us, WE ARE IN CONTROL....
"We love our new website! We know that a vast majority of home buyers and sellers begin their research on the web, and that means we need to have the best resources to aid them. Pro Step Marketing has provided an awesome solution. The site is so easy to update. We have full control over everything and don't have to wait for someone to make updates for us, WE ARE IN CONTROL. I am really fond of the listing manager. It will provide an edge when prospective sellers see what we have that the competition doesn't.
Buyers can easily navigate the site, view our featured listings, and search for homes by map, price range, and many other criteria. The framed IDX allows buyers to save searches so they can run them as they see fit, or stay on top of current inventory by having the system email them new inventory as it becomes available. Sellers are benefited by this system because they can view their area map and see what other sellers are pricing their homes at. To gather a more precise value, we offer seller a no cost, no obligation market analysis. The web form Pro Step Marketing designed gathers the information we need to create these analysis.
Pro Step Marketing was very professional the entire process. I could always get a human voice on the other end of my phone calls without a lengthy wait time. The employees at Pro Step Marketing seem to be cross trained well. I could ask a web developer SEO questions and a technical writer DNS questions and have an answer promptly. That is knowing your business, and knowing it well!
I highly recommend Pro Step Marketing to any real estate professional looking to better their image on the web, print materials, or any other marketing medium. Thanks Pro Step Marketing!"
"The website is awesome! The main page is very crisp with great color and design. The features that we feel that visitors will use really stand out. What is awesome is the amount of leads we get from our website and how great the quality is! Pro Step has been first class from the start. They have under promised and over delivered by giving us everything we wanted and more."

I specifically was guided by a experts in each specific area to help me from project manager, graphic designer, copywriter, and technical staff...
"I like the visual simplicity and the very professional look of my website. The website is easy for consumers to quickly navigate with the roll-over graphic elements that help to highlight where to click for links to other information. It also has a very welcoming feel and I'm sure will encourage visitors to enter the site.
The easy-to-use property search feature combined with the ability to save searches or receive regular emails alerts of new listings that fit a client's criteria is definitely the feature that will benefit buyers the most. The site also includes all the information that a buyer or seller would need for their real estate transaction including information on communities, articles on all aspects of the buying and selling process, links to community resources and schools, and a blog devoted to Toledo area's newsworthy events and market conditions. My sellers will particularly appreciate having extra internet advertising for their homes in my featured listings."
All the Pro Step Marketing's people that I worked with throughout the process were very knowledgeable and helpful. I specifically was guided by a salesperson, project manager, graphic designer, marketing copywriter, and a marketing and branding designer. Now, I am starting to work with Pro Step Marketing's search engine optimization experts who are training me how to use a back office program to change text, add links and pictures and even additional pages. I am very satisfied with the website."
The business cards that you designed for us get attention and rave reviews every single time we hand them out....
"We want to thank the staff at Pro Step Marketing for working so hard to please us. The website not only looks good, but is easy to navigate from a consumer standpoint. Making changes to content and adding pages is extremely simple and for that we are very thankful. The previous website that we had through a different company was so difficult to alter that the site became antiquated quite fast and never brought business to us, so our new site with you is really a pleasure.
Also, the business cards that you designed for us get attention and rave reviews every single time we hand them out. Our logo, designed by Pro Step Marketing, is very distinctive and the cards are so unusual that they really make a statement. In fact, most people that we hand them to ask us who created the cards, so we just refer them to you.
Again, thank you for helping us take our image and our business to the next level."
The team was very patient with me during this process....
"I am very excited about my new custom website and the finished product. I wanted a clean, uncluttered look and I think we accomplished that goal. The flash photos on the home page were used to give the consumer a feel for what the area looks like and a sampling of the types of homes we have varying from historic to modern.
I like the individual pages highlighting the communities I serve and the options to view the listings by price, map and by subdivision. There is a section for buyers and sellers that offer solutions to their questions and a chance to request more information if they don't readily find what they need.
All of the staff with Pro Step Marketing has been very professional to work with and very patient with me during this process."
I knew Pro Step Marketing was what I had been searching for....
"I just love my website. Pro Step Marketing has done a fantastic job putting this site together. There is so much information on the site that anyone will find this site useful. I especially like that clients can search homes in several ways, by price, area, listing number, etc., etc.
The site is user friendly, you can post an event on the calendar, set a date to use the moving truck.
I have used other web sites in the past and this one is by far the most user friendly. It looks good and offers a tremendous amount of information.
Whether a client is buying or selling, this site is easy to navigate. Clients spend more time looking at what they want. In just one click they can be viewing homes. My site even offers tips for Buyers and Sellers on what to expect and how to make the Real Estate transaction process easier and smoother.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you, Pro Step Marketing and to share with you how impressed I am with my web site and the results it brings. When my wife and I met Tricia and her staff at the CRS conference in Hawaii, I knew Pro Step Marketing was what I had been searching for.
Having the Pro Step Marketing team design and develop my new branding package and web site should streamline the Real Estate Transaction and deliver a professional package.
I am very pleased with all of the designs for my business cards, brochures, advertising tools and my new easy to remember email address, Greg@GregAllman.net."
I am very excited about how our website can evolve and grow with our business....
"I think the 'visit our blog' and 'best buy' features are great. The site offers so many different options for buyers and sellers. The different ways to search by area, map, zip code, school district, etc. are so helpful. It's very convenient for a buyer to be able to find a potential home online, and be able to fill out a quick form to send times they are available for a showing. The reports that are available online are additional features that provide helpful information to our clients.
I enjoyed working with Pro Step Marketing. The people I worked with were very helpful and answered the numerous questions I had. Even after the site was completed and live online, I am still able to get quick answers and assistance. I will definitely recommend Pro Step Marketing to other real estate agents."

I'm enjoying doing the web maintenance myself ....
"The website has definitely generated lots of leads that have gone to closing and I've bragged about Pro Step Marketing to other people because they see how well we are doing with our site. I'm enjoying doing the web maintenance myself and have several first-page search engine rankings on at least half of the keywords I'm tracking."
"I discovered Pro Step Marketing through one of our Star Power Stars, Kristan Cole. I also searched other Pro Step Marketing designed sites and found them all to be unique, presented the best image of the agent, and most important, provided consumer friendly information of the site. The biggest advantage of working with Pro Step Marketing has been the interaction between me and the folks at Pro Step Marketing. Getting the website together and going from my ideas into a finished presentation was the pinnacle of our coordination. Very easy to communicate and most importantly the website design and final proof was done before the due date. Fantastic job. I believe the biggest asset is how easy is to take and idea from the heads of a real estate professional and turning them into a solid, user friendly, and unique web site development. Every request I have made has been responded to immediately."
"A lot of agents in our market have sites that are difficult to search for properties and that is why we wanted to create a site that would give the seller and buyer easy ways to see properties for sale in specific areas around the Cleveland area. People that are relocating to Cleveland will be able to find information about the Cleveland suburbs of Cleveland Heights, Shaker Heights, Pepper Pike, Solon, and Chagrin Falls and all surrounding areas on the east side of Cleveland. We rank number top on Google for these searches which help us compete for listings as well as buyers.
Working with Pro Step has been great! I truly feel like when we call in to ask a question that we are the ONLY client they have. We feel that important and cared for. Everyone is so easy to work with and very accessible to answer questions.They have helped us develop a logo and all our branding pieces as well as our website. When we ordered our Keller Williams signs the sign companies would ask, “Who did your design? It’s is awesome!” We get compliments all the time…..best of all we also get results.”
We are extremely happy with Pro Step Marketing and are true raving fans.
“We are extremely happy with Pro Step Marketing and are true raving fans. The proof is in the results. We have been ranked as the third real estate website in the state of Florida by Florida Realtor® magazine. Through Pro Step Marketing’s Search Engine Optimization, our site has 142 real estate keywords specific to our area in the top five positions on the major search engines. The number of hits we receive on this website has skyrocketed and now total more than the hits through REALTOR.com® and Number1Expert combined where we also have personal websites.”
Their Short Sale Marketing System is by far the best...
"Hi Bob, thanks for your email. I really like the Pro Step Marketing short sale system because it is a total web strategy for short sales. Meaning it includes all aspects of marketing to short sales. It is well thought out and it works. I have been using it just over a year now and am so glad I am. It’s more than just a web site, it’s a complete marketing strategy. I hope you are as happy with it as I am." Best, Kristan

"Without a doubt, you need to have your own website and own web presence.You will be competing against other agents, some will be top agents, and you will need all the leverage you can get to win the listings.I know many good agents who just have “OK” websites, and when compared to mine when showcased correctly, they don’t stand a chance.The starter website from Prostep will get your feet on the ground to where you have all the right tools in place to show sellers you are different.Then you will be able to add features and options as you choose…that is one thing I love about Prostep is that anything I can come up, they have been able to implement into my site.
I would also recommend them over some of the other “cookie cutter” sites, because the results you will get on the leads/buyer side of the business will be much better.My team used to have one of the template sites, and although the leads looked impressive as far as numbers, we didn’t close much business from it.I actually just looked today, and I believe we went from about 8% of our buyer side business in 2008 with our old site to over 21% of our buyer side business in 2009 to about 25% in 2011 from our Pro Step Marketing website (and 60% of my business comes from repeat and referral business…so this is significant!).
With Pro Step Marketing platform, they can grow your site as your business grows!As you want to add things, they can do it.They are actually in the process of adding a new feature that I wanted to add just this week (I think for Linda as well) where we will have weekly statistical updates on our sites that we are getting from another vendor…but I emailed Tricia, asked her about it, and she said no problem…so my site is always evolving.
I could probably go on and on, but my main point is this…you must have your own web presence, and your own identity on the web…especially if you already have a logo and brand you want to use.Don’t rely on the company’s site or the company providing business for you…go get it yourself.And in my opinion, Pro Step Marketing is a great company to work with for that presence…especially if you want results that come in the form of profit!!"

We want to thank Kurt, Tricia and all the staff at Pro Step Marketing for the help over the years. We had a very successful Real Estate career and our web site was a big part of that.
We are Top on Google and it keeps getting better!
"Probably the highest compliment I could give you is that we consistently receive positive comments from our clients about the site and now we dominate on the search engines for Pinehurst Real Estate. We constantly recieve emails from people surfing the internet looking for real estate in our area. Thanks to your search engine optimization, these have proven to be "hot leads" for my buyer agents. In addition, we added our IDX which flows seamlessly with the site because of the set up you provided."
Pro Step Marketing put together a vision for our brand and how we wanted to be perceived in our market...
"Our new brand has emerged and is reflected throughout all of our marketing channels, from print to web. We love having a brand that captures the essence of our business and what we are about."

In today’ s market you must have the best tools available to you if you want to be at the top of the list.
"In today’ s market you must have the best tools available to you if you want to be at the top of the list . For me that is Pro Step Marketing! I started with Tricia Andressan of Pro Step Marketing in 2004 with my first website. Since then she has designed 5 other outstanding sites for me, each different based on what my needs were. She has the ability to listen to you and then design the site you need for your market . Working with her team is a pleasure and they get the job done."
"Pro Step Marketing offers lots of options and the website is easy to change and move around in. I have previously had sites with Advanced Access and before that Z57 and I was very unhappy with both of the companies. I just have the executive level website from Pro Step Marketing that is the $20 a month. They set up the wording on the main pages, the template design, and the meta tags (I just don't understand all the tags like they do).
One thing I can say is that I change things around often by doing neighborhood searches, subdivisions, etc. They helped my understand how to do this with a page and then I did the others (so simple). This helps me to get more rankings. I also try to blog as much as I can (a huge plus for hits).
Pro Step Marketing is always there if I have a change that is needed or a question. They always help me right away.
I am so happy that I just set up a short sale website at LakeCountyForeclosureHelp.com. This site is already up and running in just days. Now I just to take the platform and tweet it in different ways for me on a more personal message.
I agree with Tricia. Why are you having a huge site built when you can start with a platform and then slowly have it grow with you? Thats definitely what I like about this company. They allow you to grow with it by allowing you to add the addition of pages, making changes, or doing whatever you want.
Please, please, please, feel free to check out my website and let me know your questions or thoughts.”
I am very pleased with my short sale site and have consistently ranked in the top ten for many searches...
"I also wanted to let you know how pleased I am with my experience with your company to date.Everyone is very accommodating and eager to help.You really care about your customers.You now have a customer for life and I will certainly tell as many people as I can about your good service. I am constantly amazed how easy it is to add my own content to my site and how well now I am ranking on Google.Thanks for giving me the tools so I can get the word out."
"Received a call from a Cleveland Newscaster who is doing a piece on divorcee's selling their home. She asked to interview us on the news. I asked how she found us, she said she Googled "Cleveland Real Estate Expert" and we were first to come up. This is going to be great exposure for us! You guys are the best!!!"
"You are in for a grand experience as you work with the entire Pro Step Marketing Team--great counsel, consistent follow-up, total guidance and fun throughout the process. I feel like I am cutting edge in every sense of real estate marketing strategy."
