Using Emojis to Improve Communication & Build Relationships with Customers

It may sound silly at first, but a new line of emojis, CARmojis, were created by the California Association of Realtors®. They are emojis designed specifically for Realtors®! The keyboard is available to download on both the App Store and Google Play. Choose from a variety of GIFs and emojis ranging from open house signs, home appliances, and sets of keys, to offer accepted and offer received stickers.


Celebrate the closing of a new home with your customers by sending a bottle of champagne emoji, or send them a fingers crossed sticker after you’ve presented their offer to the seller. Let your customer know you’re still working hard for them after a lull by sending a picture of a new listing or open house with a “who’s your Realtor®” GIF. CARmoji’s are a fun and creative way to connect with your clients and market to them in a lighthearted, friendly way. The best part about this keyboard is your communication doesn’t have to be limited to texting. CARmojis are available to use on a variety of social media platforms including: Mail, Imessage, Facebook Messenger, KIk, WhatsApp, and Tango.

The CARmoji keyboard is free to download and definitely worth a couple minutes to skim through to explore all of the possibilities and how they can be used to your business’ advantage.

Like My Video – Agent Contest

Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices has just launched a new Like My Video Contest.  This contest will run May-June and gives you the chance to win hundreds of dollars in Chalk Digital ad credits or a HouseLens smartphone stabilizer.


Here are the details:

  • Use the BHHS Videolicious app to create a video—no longer than 90 seconds—that relates to the monthly theme. May’s theme is community.
  • Submit your community-themed video by May 16. Now that you’ve created your video, name it 1LMVLASTNAME, inserting your last name in the video title. Because Videolicious is automatically integrated with Marketing REsource, BHHS will take care of the rest. You can view the complete legal rules, including submission instructions, here
  • Encourage people to like your video! Each month, BHHS will choose the best five videos and post them on their Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Facebook page. If your video is selected in the top five, you’ll want to reach out to your sphere of influence and ask them to like your video via the BHHS Facebook Page. Selected videos will have a full week to generate likes and the most-liked videos will win prizes! (Please note: if you post the video to your Facebook page, those likes won’t count. Only likes on the videos posted to the Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Facebook page go toward the contest.)


The agent who creates the video generating the most amount of likes will receive a smartphone stabilizer from HouseLens (worth $320) and $500 worth of ad credit in his/her Chalk Digital account.
