Great for My Busy Real Estate Life...Maybe Yours Too!

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Greater Cleveland West

Sometimes I'm just knocked over by how AWESOME technology can be....especially when it's partnered with my favorite word in tech:  FREE


After registering online for this free service, I was able to speak into my cell phone and convert the voice message to a text and/or email that was sent instantaneously to the contact I designated.  It uses very sophisticated voice recognition software that does not require any difficult set-up or voice training.

Maybe you are wondering if this service would be helpful to you.  Perhaps you are wondering how it applies to our business.

First, it's dangerous to text and drive.  Trust me, I know.  Now I just call the FREE JOTT SERVICE on my phone and it asks me who I want to JOTT.  It asks me to confirm my entry and then I can speak directly to fellow agents, prospects, etc. from the road and have my messages delivered to their email and/or text on their phone. 

Second, I can create groups and leave duplicate messages for all members in just a few seconds.  Think new listing, price reduction, open house announcement to your active buyers, etc.

Third, how about not having to write your to do list?  You can create a list and keep a running one online and print it out when you are ready.  Great for notes, tasks, and reminding your kids of their chores.

I URGE YOU....give it a try.  The site tour is very helpful and again, it's free to use.  It's spread through our office like wildfire and we all love it.  You'll be shocked at the accuracy.  And BONUS: You get a copy sent to your email so that you can keep client files current.

Perhaps this will save a few trees and post it notes too....

Hi Stacey - I've seen Jott before but haven't tried it yet. Wasn't aware of the group feature, and that's something that might benefit our team and office. I'll take another look this week!

Hi Guys and thanks for the great comments.  The group feature is also nice in addition for the office, how about setting up a group that would include all parties to a closing like lender, title, buyer/seller, other agent, etc and then you can update the whole group at once when contingencies are removed, appraisals come in, approvals, closing, etc.

What a great way to let your seller know their home is being shown or feedback while you are on the road and shouldn't be texting anyways. 

PLEASE take a moment for those of you who have used the service and let me know what your favorite uses and applications have been
