)-- Jorge Vigil of RE/MAX Vision 212 in Chicago was honored for his online prowess at the 39th RE/MAX Northern Illinois Awards Ceremony held on Feb. 19. Vigil captured dual honors from RE/MAX Northern Illinois.
A RE/MAX broker for the last 12 years, he is a resident of Melrose Park, Ill.
First, Vigil was honored as the broker who most effectively utilized the RE/MAX Mobile App and promoted its use by his customers. The RE/MAX Mobile App delivers an incredible array of real estate market data to brokers and their clients.
“The mobile app is a wonderful tool, and my clients have loved using it,” Vigil said. “It gives them great access to comprehensive listings wherever they are. What so many of them like is that it alerts them instantly to relevant market information and lets them know when they are near a home that meets the criteria they have established for their home search.”
Vigil’s second award recognized him for attracting more unique visitors to his website in 2015 than any other individual agent in the RE/MAX Northern Illinois network. Vigil’s website received nearly 65,000 unique visits last year, which was twice as many as the prior year’s winner.
“We’ve worked hard to promote the website, and those efforts paid dividends last year as the market continued to strengthen,” Vigil said. “I’ve been active on social media and as a blogger for some time now, which has helped bring people to the site. And once they get there, they are urged to download the RE/MAX Mobile App, so the two really work together.”
RE/MAX agents consistently rank among the most productive in the industry. In 2015, RE/MAX Northern Illinois agents averaged 18 transaction sides. RE/MAX has been the leader in the northern Illinois real estate market since 1989 and is continually growing.
