When an agent upgrades to a verified account, they will receive one complimentary FCA business card. FCA cards have a built in chip that allow users to quickly provide a digital business card including contact information and a personalized message to others by simply tapping and holding the card against a phone. The user will then be presented with three options:
1) Add the agent to the contacts in their phone
2) Learn more about the agent by visiting their First Class Agent profile
3) Send the agent their contact information.
FCA Cards are activated once an agent upgrades to a verified account. The cards remain active until the agent cancels their subscription.
As an alternative, the QR code can be used to provide the digital business card. Have the client open their camera and point to the QR code. They will be prompted to open the link to the digital card and can then save the information in their contact list on their phone.
We have made this as easy as possible for agents with premium or verified accounts. The contact information provided on the digital contact card is all taken directly from your First Class Agents profile. This includes: profile picture, name, title, phone number, email, brokerage, website and brokerage website. When you update your First Class Agents profile, your FCA card is automatically updated!
You can also add a custom message to your contact card that will appear in the notes section when saved. The message can include a link to a listing, spec sheet or any other external url.
You can access the date and time of every card tap both in the last 30 days and since receiving the card by visting the "Offline Networking" section on your First Class Agents profile.
You will also be provided with a list of First Class Agents members that you have met in person. These members will be separated into two lists showing members that you have as contacts on First Class Agents and members that are not currently in your contact list.
When the FCA Card is tapped, the client will have the option to provide their contact information to the agent by filling out a short form. When the form is submitted, the agent will be notified via email and can access the contact information and any message provided by visiting the "Offline Networking" section on their profile. Agents will also find a link to quickly add the client's information to the contacts on their phone.
The FCA card uses NFC technology to transfer information from the card to a user's phone. Most newer phones have this feature automatically enabled. In some older phones or phones that have not been updated, this feature will need to be enabled in settings. The QR code can always be used as an alternative to tapping.
Additional or replacement cards can be purchased through the Agent Store.
Only verified first class agents can create and manage a team. The team lead will be responsible for adding a team logo, description, and inviting and removing members.
Real estate agents can only join one team at a time. They must first receive an invite from the team lead. All team invites are available in the "Teams" section on an agent's profile. The "Accept" invitation and "Leave Team" buttons can also be found in this section.
Only verified first class agents can contribute to a team's statistics. Team totals will be tabulated from the verified achievements of their members. These statistics will be used in the future to rank teams on the team search page.
Agents can use their board to post annnouncements to their contacts or all other users. Agents can post a new board once every 24 hours. When a new board is posted it will appear in the feed section that can be accessed using the link at the top of each page.
Examples include: A new listing, a new acheivement, an upcoming event, a fundraiser, etc.
You can initiate an introduction between two of your contacts by simply clikcing "Provide an Introduction". Select the two contacts you would like to meet, add a message and click submit.
They will each receive an email informing them that you would like to introduce them to one another. The request will then show up on their profiles in the introduction section under "Received".
The search score and rankings section is only available to agents with a premium account or verified agents.
Agents will be able to see where they rank in their city as well as nationally among all agents that are registered on First Class Agents. Please note that the total agents for ranking purposes includes both agents who have visible and hidden profiles.
Agents can view their search score as well as charts showing how they compare to the top search scores in their location and across the country. Search scores are used to determine the order in search results.
Search scores and rankings can be improved through networking and making use of the many First Class Agents site features. Search scores are only updated when a user visits First Class Agents. Search scores are recalculated using our algorithm no more that once per day.
Profile statistics are automatically updated in real time. Some profile satistics are available to all agents, while some are only available to premium accounts and verified agents. Statistics are provided for both the last 30 days and since joining First Class Agents.
The number of users that visit your profile. If a user visits your profile multiple times, they could be counted more than once towards the total visitors. There is however a time that must pass before they will be counted for a second time. This will include both registered users and those that are just browsing the site.
The number of unique users that visit your profile. A user is only counted once regardless of how many times they visit your profile. This will include both registered users and those that are just browsing the site.

You will find a link that can be used to direct clients and partners to an agent's profile. Use this link to share the profile on your social media or on any promotional material.
Each Real Estate Agent Profile has a QR code. This is a great tool that can be used to link directly to a profile if using a URL is too long. An agent or client can simply add it to any marketing material and a customer will be directed to their First Class Agent Profile.
Prior to adding the QR code to any advertisement or print material, please test it for yourself to ensure it is working correctly. To do this simply hold your phone camera up the QR code and follow the link.
The Contacts section is broken down by Industry. Within each section you will be able to search, invite, review, add and delete contacts. The idea is to have all of your important business contacts all in one place.
To find Real Estate Agents to add to your contact list, simply search for an agent using the search page. When you visit an agent's profile, you will see a button to add the agent to your contacts.
You can remove an agent from your contacts in one of two ways. The first option is to visit the contact section on your profile page and click the "x" next to the agent's name. The second option is to visit the agent's profile page and click the "remove contact" button found under their profile picture.
Users receive a notification when they have been added to or removed from a user's contact list.
To find Industry Professionals to add to your contact list, you must use the search links provided in the search dropdown in the header. Only Industry Professional and Agent accounts have access to this search option. In the future, clients will be able to perform this type of search.
To view a profile for any industry professional simply click on their name in your list of contacts or on the industry search page.
You can remove an industry professional from your contacts by clicking the "x" next to their name or by visting their profile and clicking the "remove contact" button located below their profile picture.
