Communication Solutions for Real Estate Companies

One of the factors that can make or break a real estate company is the relationship it has with its clients. Aside from providing quality services, assistance, and options that guarantee value for money, real estate companies and their agents need to keep their clients satisfied and happy. The key to achieving this is through proper and professional communication.

Buying a property is a major decision that requires significant investment. It is natural for clients to seek properties that meet their specific requirements and lifestyle. Real estate agents are used to being bombarded with questions and inquiries from clients with different circumstances.

And in order to prosper in the industry, these queries must be addressed effectively through proper communication. Here are different scenarios concerning real estate business that can be addressed through various communication solutions;

For clients moving in from abroad

Moving to a new place also means acquiring a property that you can call your new “home”. Your first move might be to contact a local real estate agent that can guide you through the process.

For instance, you’re browsing through Properties Miami website and you want to inquire about residential properties. You would need to make multiple phone calls to communicate with your real estate agent or with the real estate company.

A good communication solution is by purchasing Skype to phone call credits which will allow you to make international calls; or by investing in magicJack (VoIP phone service) which is a device that allows users to make unlimited phone calls to the U.S. and Canada from another country.

Skype-to-phone call-in services may be viewed as a good option if you are able to manage the length of your international phone calls. Otherwise, you may purchase and set up a magicJack number which will allow you to have unlimited incoming and outgoing calls any time of the day for an annual fee of $39.

Social media messaging apps like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter have become useful in keeping people in touch for both personal and professional matters. Other apps that can serve a purpose are IMO, Viber, Skype, and Facetime.

Other convenient and cost-effective communication solutions that can make it possible for real estate agents and other concerned parties to contact clients from abroad via web conferencing are; Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting, Fuze Meeting, and Unified Meeting 5.
