You might have tried using Outlook for real estate contact management, but quickly discovered that Outlook just doesn’t cut it. A true real estate CRM, such as IXACT Contact, is specifically designed to help you build a referrals-based business by making it easy to keep in touch with everyone in your database, build stronger relationships, and stay organized and in control of your business. Outlook is simply missing key features and functionality that are available in a contact management for Realtors like IXACT Contact.
Contact Management for Realtors
Effective contact management for Realtors is much easier when you use a true real estate contact management system. For instance, categorizing contacts and searching across multiple groups is a breeze with IXACT Contact. You can also search your database across a number of different criteria including the date someone was added to your contact list, when a call was logged with a specific contact, the last time a client was represented by you in a transaction, and more. IXACT Contact even includes various useful reports that give you important insight into your business.
When it comes to email marketing, IXACT Contact is leaps and bounds ahead of Outlook. IXACT Contact comes with a library of real estate specific email and letter templates and a professionally written and designed monthly e-Newsletter that’s complete and ready to send. Our real estate contact management system is also a great platform for email marketing because it can easily handle large distribution lists, whereas Outlook cannot. And don’t even think about personalizing your mass emails, doing drip marketing campaigns, or tracking clicks, opens, and bounce-backs in Outlook!
Now, think about transaction management. Can you manage and organize your listings, showings, third parties, commissions, and transaction documents in Outlook? Can you generate service reports? The answer is no. IXACT Contact even includes listing and closing Activity Plans that prompt you every step of the way to ensure no detail is missed when you’re listing or closing a home.
Mobility and Synchronization
Lastly, as a Realtor, you’re always on the road and may not have access to your computer. Because IXACT Contact is cloud-based, you can access your database from wherever you happen to be, and whatever computer or tablet you happen to be using, provided you have an internet connection. The system even syncs to your smartphone. So whether you’re in the office or on the road, you’ll always have access to the most current contact information, calendar, and tasks.
If you’d like to continue using Outlook for your everyday email correspondence, you can! With our Outlook Link capability, all contact, calendar and task information can be synchronized in real-time between Outlook and IXACT Contact. Any change you make in IXACT Contact is instantly reflected in Outlook, and vice versa. And because your contact list in IXACT Contact is always available in Outlook, there’s no need to manage two separate address books!
