FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Please take a moment to look at the most frequently asked questions regarding Breakthrough Broker Plus.

WHAT IS THE MLS LOOKUP?

MLS Lookup

Note: the MLS Lookup feature is only available to Breakthrough Broker Plus members.

On templates with listing details or pictures, users can enter their listing number using the MLS Lookup tool, which populates the template with their listing’s details and photos.

Three very important things to note when using the MLS Lookup tool:

  1. The MLS Lookup tool connects to most, but not all, MLS’s. To find out if yours is connected, follow these instructions. Looking up your MLS number will bring in all your photos; however, it will only populate the number of photos on the template, starting with photo #1 from the MLS.

  2. Clicking on any photo will bring up the gallery, where you can select from all your MLS photos.

  3. Proofread carefully before saving or printing your templates. MLS Lookup brings in the details from your listing, but depending on the template, and the length of your details (especially property description), some auto-filled information can get cut off. Make sure that the template looks exactly like you want it to, especially before sending it off to a print shop. Breakthrough Broker is not responsible for orders with typographical errors, either from your MLS listing or from an autofill detail that gets cut off.

HOW DO I CREATE A PROFILE?

Advanced Profile Branding

Note: Advanced profile branding tools are only available to Breakthrough Broker Plus members.

Preset Brand Color

On most Breakthrough Broker templates, you are able to choose a color that matches your brand. However, when you set your Preset Brand Color, every template you visit will be preloaded with your color.

To set your color visit your profile, find the “Logo Library” section, and click on the circle marked “Edit Primary Brand Color."

You will still have the option to select a different color when editing a template.

Headshot & Logo Library

If you have multiple headshots or logos that you use often, you can upload them into your headshot & logo library, located in your profile. (Note: you can only save a maximum of 4 headshots and 3 logos to your profile)

Then, when editing in a template, click on your headshot, and you can easily choose between any of your stored headshots.

Two-Agent & Team Branding

Agents who work with a partner or a real estate team can take advantage of our two-agent and team branding options, available on our BB Plus templates!

Creating these content items is fast and easy once you set up your profile with your partner or team’s information and headshots. To set up team branding, visit your profile, accessible via the menu at the top right of any page on Breakthrough Broker.

In your profile, find the “Team Member” section (you may need to expand this section by clicking the “+” icon next to it). Fill in the details about your team member and upload their headshot. If you work with a team, you can upload a team photo and group logo.

Now, find a piece of BB Plus content you love from the BB Plus section of the site. In the editor, you’ll see a “Teams” button. Clicking this allows you to select between a single agent, two-agent, or team version of the template. If you have set up your profile, the template will automatically fill in with the appropriate photos and info.
