Realtors® can show clients around town while maintaining social distance by creating a UCPlaces “Where to Live” tour.
UCPlaces provides the platform upon which Realtors® can create narrated, GPS-led, fully-branded “Where to live” tours of the area in which they specialize, gaining exposure to potential prospects who get to know the neighborhood, as well as the Realtor®, as if they are driving in the same car. Be their guide first, their agent later!
Tours are created for free on the UCPlaces platform, taken via freely downloadable smartphone app, and shared on the agent's website, social media posts or any other channel. Agents who sign up for UCPlaces membership receive an Expert badge, listing priority on the UCPlaces app and website, as well as the opportunity for Expert exclusivity in their defined region.
