I am all about reviews - I have never used software or anything automated to get a review. 

Here is what I do. I personally ask every customer for a "great review" of our services on Zillow and one other source (either Realtor.com, Yelp or Facebook). I then follow up with a personal email with links for the customer to use for each review. 

Here are the only sites that (IMO) matter for reviews. This list is in order:

1. ZILLOW (YOU MUST GET ZILLOW REVIEWS AND HAVE A COMPLETE PROFILE ON ZILLOW) there are folks on here that  bash Zillow ...My advise is to ignore them.

2. Realtor.com --- same as above ... ignore them also. 

3. Facebook - create an Fb page for your Re business and post on it daily. you can look at my Fb page to get ideas. I dominate social media in my local market and always ask customers, friends and family to review me.

4. Yelp - people that use that use Yelp are loyal to it. Get a free profile and get you at least five reviews on it. I do not pay Yelf but have gotten several listing from my free profile. 

In my opinion these are the only sites that matter. Good luck.

Some post on my website, others on Zillow - I am horrible at reminding them and when you Close on a house, the last thing you're thinking about is writing a review!

For me, the referrals are the best 'rating' and I don't stress about the testimonials.

Brandon,

We may be among the minority, but we don't believe that ranking equals $$$in the door.  Recently a highly ranked guy spoke at the Chamber of Commerce.  It was obvious to all that he did not know what he was talking about...When called on the carpet, he laughed and said, "I know how to get highly ranked!"  A

my daughter receives a testimonial from every client she has.... they post it on Z....and Tammy includes those testimonials in her pre-listing binder for potential sellers to read.... it works well.... 

Tammy asks once and the clients write very nice detailed testimonials.... she doesn't need any programs for it...

I have not brandon lentine and I would not pay for such a service or software. Someday, if my business were to slow down I'd maybe take up my slack time by asking people for reviews.

You can do it on your own as others before me have explained.  There is also a company named Oggvo that helps make this process easier.  Might be worth checking out?
