I do not - I prefer potential buyers to call me directly - I get to practise my conversion ;)

I get it via my brokerage. I love the mobile search and mobile listing sites that I can share via text. Also, it captures caller phone numbers and alerts me so I can follow-up quickly and interact personally. I defintely use it for my listings. It does not sell the listing, I do that, but it does offer a convenient way for sellers to share their listing within their own network, and it provides warm buyer leads with whom I can establish relationship.

I have not heard of Voicepad but I've heard of other services that did the same type of thing as well as like Ron and Alexandra Seigel I took have "now in storage" the Talking House signs and recorders.  To be honest, the ROI is not usually there and you are better off having a rider on your sign directing prospective buyers to call you directly or to go to your website "mobile friendly" to get information and to schedule a walk thru or to see the "other" properties you have on the market.

My company has provided this service to its agents for probably over a decade now. It's a call capture program and as it's free to me, I use their sign riders to follow up on any sign leads who don't call me directly but through VoicePad. Elva Branson-Lee has provided good information as well.

Silvia Dukes PA, Broker Associate, CRS, CIPS, SRES, my broker has just included it in our marketing package. I'm just learning it and I really like the mobile search app that I can share with customers and prospects. Since it's included in our marketing package, I'm not really sure what VoicePad costs.

I do not use voicepad.  I do pay for RealBird's text for more info feature.  It gives them the basic info, a link to my single property website and captures the call info.  I start using it on my next listing.

I have used ListTrac through our MLS for sign riders  - drive-bys can access the website/MLS information by texting or a QR code and I capture their telephone numbers and follow-up with them. Usage is pretty low - I get more direct sign calls for information

I use to use a 24 hour hotline service, but with all the advances in wireless over the last few years, people quit calling the hotline # so I canceled it. The main reason I used it was to satisfy sellers who liked to call and say " The flier box is empty". Occasionally i would call the # back to see if person that called had any questions while they were at the property. Well, it turned out many people don't call until later after they are long gone from the property. More cons than pros with those systems.

I seem to be channeling Ken Jones today.  Typically I channel Nina Hollander - I'm in alignment with Ken on this. And I will add ... more crap to sell agents and complicate what otherwise is an easy and seamless process.
