Why is it important to use contact management software that is designed for real estate professionals? It is not just important it is critical to the success as a real estate professional to use real estate contact management software. Contact Management software designed with real estate professionals makes the job of staying in touch with your contacts easier, more efficient and ultimately will generate more business.

So just what is real estate contact management software??

In the simplest of terms this is software that allows a real estate professional to add customer or soon to be customers to a database and schedule regular and recurring activities with these people.

Think of it in terms of having the help of an executive assistant that could cost you thousands per month for the cost of less than $40 per month. Real estate contact management software should allow you to do the following:

  • Store names, addresses, phone numbers of potential real estate clients

  • Allow you to categorize prospects from past clients and soon to be clients

  • Allow you to schedule calls, letters, and e-mails with these prospects to turn them into clients

  • Make it easy to send bulk e-mails and letters to clients to get them interested in your services

  • Make you look professional because you remember to send clients birthday cards, anniversary cards, and call when clients kids have birthday’s

What are some features to look for in real estate contact management software?

The number one thing that every real estate professional should look for in contact management software is ease of use. Not just ease of use rated by a service but one that you feel the most comfortable with. It should make sense to you and be something that you can see yourself using every day. That is not to say that there won’t be challenges with learning a new piece of real estate software but it should not be so strange that you won’t use it. After all real estate contact management software that is not used will not be effective at all and just be a waste of your time, effort, and money.

Some additional features that you may want to consider:

  • It is hosted by another company or do you have to install it on your computer

  • Is it specific for real estate – we would recommend that you use one designed for real estate professionals.

  • Do you get free tech support or do you have to pay for it. Some great products don’t have free tech support and some do so keep this in mind.
