You work very hard to get traffic to your website. Every visitor could become a potential client.
OK then, we will start by minimizing your links going to other websites. These are like leaving the backdoor open and wondering why the dog got out. Some outbound links are good for SEO though. Try 1 link per blog post. Make it go to a credible source of information about real estate. Set it to open in a new browser window. And, don’t put it front and center. You don’t really want anyone to click it. You just want Google to see it.
