How Local Life Realty Boosted Agent Recruitment While Expanding into 3 New Markets in 11 Months

“Local Life Realty could not be more thrilled with our brokerage website, our agent’s personal websites, and our continued partnership with Luxury Presence. The team at LP has a profound understanding of building websites specific to the real estate industry without sacrificing form and function for beauty. 

You get the entire package with them, and beyond that, they internally have the best team. Allie Mierau is one of the kindest and most competent human beings I have ever had the pleasure of working with, and her aptitude for creativity and branding is equally matched with her sheer intelligence and work ethic. She and Drew Wilke have been outstanding partners to our team at Local Life, and I would never recommend anyone in the real estate business go anywhere else for a website. 

Thank you, Allie and Drew. We appreciate you more than you know!”
