Texting for Real Estate Agents (and Teams)
By sharing a business number with your team you are less likely to feel permanently tethered to your phone by the fear of missing an important call or text.
As real estate agents we know how hard it is to juggle everything we have going on not to mention trying to get a break with the constant phone calls and emails keep us up at night. How do I know this? Before stepping back to raise my two girls I was in real estate for the better part of 10 years. This is why I know you need Hoptree.
When you are in real estate there are always tons of things going on all at the same time — Calls coming in, emails to send, texts to answer and listings to set up. When you are on your own these are easy enough to manage; but, once your business grows, Its complicated to coordinate everything with your assistants and teams.
This is where Hoptree comes in. Hoptree gives you the ability to have a business texting number. You might say – I already text with my personal phone. That’s true, (at least I hope it is) but your personal phone has limitations. With Hoptree you have visibility across the team when a text comes in. For example, when your client texts with a simple question or minor change your assistant can take care of it while you’re showing a house –and better yet you can trust and see that the situation is being handled. Furthermore, when you are in a partnership or team you don’t have to text and call each other with updates about what is going on with each client. Instead, you can check in and see exactly what’s going on. Say good-bye to misunderstandings, miscommunication and unnecessarily duplicated tasks!
Hoptree also allows you to mark who you are helping so if you are the one primarily in charge of a specific client you can mark that in Hoptree and only you will get the notifications. Then, when you are out of town or unavailable you can change it so your partner can pick up right where you left off with no bumbling or laps of care. What a relief! By sharing a business number with your team you are less likely to feel permanently tethered to your phone by the fear of missing an important call or text. Instead, you can have complete confidence your clients are taken care of while you step away. Hoptree can give you both the chance to step away and greater productivity with smoother transactions.
Hoptree has no long-term commitments and you can start small and grow to a different sized account any time. Try it today and see how much Hoptree changes your business for the better!
