The smart phone has made it easy to keep in touch with clients.

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Centre Realtors

I just cannot imagine working as a realtor without my Blackberry.

I do not need to log into my computer to check my email. As sson as i receiev an email I get an alert message and I can check messages.

This helps me respond to web clients instantly. We receive leads from Re/ Max web site and if we do not respond within a certain time, the lead is given to someone else. We do not sit at our desk all day and are always on the road. I have missed leads in the past but have not missed any since I got my Blackberry.

I also use the texting feature. There are times when clients or coop agents  can not talk but can text a reply even if they are at meetings.

There are other applications we can use but the ones I use most often are email and text features and ofcourse use it to call people.

I have also used the camera feature and video feature on occasion .

I never leave home without my Blackberry and have returned home when I forgot to take it with me . I recently purchased a car charger for the Blackberry.

Gita * I am still using my OLD Palm desktop contact software.  I have categories for owners, business and tenants.  I can export them to my Google Contacts and sync with my EVO android smart phone and tablet - I only have to enter the information 1X and they are ALWAYS in the cloud.  I also have my lockboxes serial #s and shackle codes as a category....

Texting, email, web, apps, all stuff on the SmartPhone. An iPad, larger screen with WiFi or 4G. Many tools Gita. RIM and Blackberry market share keeps declining over Android and iPhone.
