Technology Time Savings

Real Estate Agent with Allison James Estates and Homes SL3168091

I find it really hard to fathom how most agents are getting their work done these days. I'm not a huge technology expert, but I am finding that some successful agents are not utilizing their technology wisely. I recently found out about 'blogging" and putting my listings free on multiple sites!  The old ways of prospecting are still a great source of getting clients to share your vision is good, but realistically a more supported system of staying in touch is in order.  I've been watching my expenses, and although Top Producer and Agent office are great products, they are relatively costly in this market. Some money savings things that I found, that I thoght I might share:

  • Use Outlook to stage your messages for the month.
  • Find free newsletter options on the web through co-marketing ideas (our warranty company provides one for us- First American Home Warranty
  • Use Mail Merge (in Word) to do letters, make templates, and mass emails or messages to save money
  • investigate bulk mailing options in your area and for your brokerage.

I do so much business in Short Sales and Investment properties, I would be lost without the tools that I have.  I am investigating more ways to be more efficient in my business, with checklists and reminder systems. I'm positive that has what has made me successful.  Please comment if you would like to share any of your time savings, and efficiency techniques.  Another time savings technique has been leverage- and referrals. I am never to busy for any of your referrals that would like to do business in Brevard County, FL. I am working with clients all over the United States and Canada.  If you would like to check out my services, please visit: I would be happy to consult with you or your clients to get their jobs done!  If you would like to call me directly, 321-243-4519, Josephine Carpenter.
