The star rating system in kvCORE is an extra layer of organization you can use to sort out your Smart CRM at a glance, this is also known as the "kvCORE Predictive Score".

By rating contacts, you can rank them by quality or importance, which will help you quickly see what needs the most attention. It can also help you notice when poor quality leads suddenly become high quality which is equally important! If you saw that a lowly-rated lead suddenly saved a listing or started interacting with your site, it could be an indicator for a lead that is now ready to buy or sell, where they were not before.

In your Smart CRM, when viewing contacts, you can quickly see and change the star rating.

If you open a contact record by clicking on their name, you can see and change the star rating from the control panel on the left side.


kvCORE will rate your contacts automatically with what InsideRE calls Lead Validation. An initial rating will be given based on the lead validation information that's collected. While kvCORE will rate your new leads initially, you should continue to maintain a rating that makes objective sense, as you work with them.

Please Note: Once you rate a contact manually, it will not be automatically rated again.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have a contact who came in with a physical address and an email address. Why didn't it get another star?

Check to make sure the email address does not contain any errors. One example would be delaneym@yahoo.co vs delaneym@yahoo.com. You'll want to ensure there are no typos!
