Are you losing money by not texting?

Real Estate Agent with Touchstone Realty

Are you losing money by not texting? That's the question I pose to a lot of agents in my area who don't text message.  I can tell you with the new technology coming out with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, MySpace, this is a game changer for Realtors.  Text messaging is almost become another language to younger generation buyers and sellers.   I can tell you I get communicate more business through text messaging than anything else.  I make it real easy for Buyers and Seller to text message me on a regular basis during a deal.  This being said are you losing money by not using text messaging?  A lot of agencies in this business feel that it's not a necessity when it really has become the norm.  Twitter, YouTube, Facebook, MySpace have evolved and become another way of communicating with friends, family and also clients.  Taking this into consideration you would almost be smart to integrate these things in their daily life especially Facebook to be able to communicate with their clients or even get new clients and customers on a regular basis by not being afraid of using new technology.

Texting is great. Quick, instant, connected. My kids taught me the benefits. Got me trained.

Chris, text is a time saver. Sometimes you can't answer the phone.
