Posted on August 13, 2018 | By Claudia Fowell
As you can see, these features really do help manage your properties and help agents perform better when it comes to client management and new sales.
Property management is a challenging career and it is fast developing to being a job that is going to be always on the move. This is because the main product they sell is always outside of the office premises and agents need to be travelling a lot meeting clients and visiting sites. The agents also have to be collaborating with other staff members within the office premises by sharing information, giving leads and closing deals and all these things need documentation, approvals etc, so to avoid delays they need the help of modern technology to stay on top of things. Let’s look at some of the most commonly used devices.
- Apps: nowadays it seems everything happens on an app. The rise in use of smart phones such as apple and android has created a huge amount of apps that agents can use to share information with clients and their co-workers at office. Some apps use a rating scale so that they can really look for the dream home the clients want. These apps can also provide additional details such as interior design ideas and locating specific locations such as properties near important amenities or schools.
- Remote servers: real estate crm are a great help for agents and they help them collaborate better with co- workers and clients from where ever they are. These remote servers allow for data to be accessed and data to be entered and stored from different locations provided you have a working internet connection. So there is no need to wait to get to office to send emails to clients or to colleagues at work, you can do it on the go. They also provide agents the freedom to do multiple work related tasks, while they are away from office premises, limiting their need to report to the office every now and then, which makes their lives and work much more productive and easy.
- Smart phones: consumer behaviour has changes over time, which means clients need information very soon and they want agents to respond with information they want 24/7. This demand based consumer behaviour has put pressure on agents to be available to serve their clients. Therefore it is paramount that they have smart phones and tabs with links to real estate mobile websites with them which allow them to stay in constant contact with the clients. Sending texts, images and other forms of information becomes very easy when you use these devices.
As you can see these devices and technological advancements have become indispensible to agents working in this industry.
