I just learned of a new member benefit that is available to all members of the National Association of REALTORS®.
We already know that NAR offered free dot realtor domain names back in 2014 (https://www.claim.realtor) and a few of us took advantage of it.
Recently NAR announced a new member benefit from real estate digital marketing company, Placester.
Here is the inside scoop straight from the NAR website:
Every NAR member can now build and launch a professional real estate website for free with Placester’s new NAR Edition.
•IDX listing integration capability*
•Homepage with customizable slideshow images
•Custom domain mapping
•Global listings search filtering
•Editable Listing Search, About, and Testimonial pages
•Mortgage Calculator widget
•Exclusive site design for NAR members, incorporating the REALTOR® trademark and value statement
•NAR designation & certification logos for site footer
•Social media icons with links to Facebook and other accounts
Placester’s NAR Edition websites are designed to be turnkey, and include everything needed to build an online presence, without the need for technical or programming skills. Email support is included.
Agent websites through Placester are free with your NAR membership, with no limited trials or expirations. In some areas, additional MLS surcharges or fees may apply.

I think that you should do this even though you already have a website. You could dedicate this one to a specific market or demographic that you want to reach, while still maintaining your current site.
In my opinion, the more places that you can be found on the internet, the more credibility you have. What do you think?
