You’ve heard it from your trainer, your coach, and even your broker, all the ways a great real estate CRM can help you and your business, but what about your clients? We all know that a happy client is one who comes back to you for business, and is much more likely to refer others to you. So what if your CRM could help keep them happy? Good news – it can! We share how below.
How quickly you respond to an inquiry from a contact – anywhere in your pipeline – is a key factor in how happy they will be with your service. Buying or selling a home is a huge moment in anyone’s life, and no one wants to be kept waiting a long time for details about this transaction. With a great real estate CRM such as IXACT Contact, you cut down your response time on new leads with instant lead notifications via text and/or email.
But what about current clients? They want to hear from you too! IXACT Contact helps you keep on top of all the To Do’s related to your listings and active buyers with Listing and Closing Activity Plans that include automated task reminders. And best of all, you can create and send a Service Report that highlights all the hard work you’ve done on their behalf with just a couple of clicks.
You can also set Keep in Touch Call Reminders so that you never lose touch with past clients. With so much automation, you are also able to pay closer attention to those unexpected phone calls or emails. Your contacts will all be delighted with how rapidly you respond to their inquiries.
2. Business Referrals
