This App is to hook up a probable shopper to a nearby agent on obligation.
It is a referral platform for agents (authentic estate agents and mortgage agents) to get free of charge, limitless prospects. Agents shell out a quite minimal referral fee only when a transaction is closed. The App provides all the brick and mortar offices Responsibility Roster online so the agents can be on obligation on their mobile phone anywhere they like, anytime they prefer.

For customers, it supplies an instant relationship to an agent about them to get a free of charge consultation of nearby market place or talk to any queries they have. there is a free of charge textual content function in the App for them to chat, or they can select other means to “meet” – phone or movie or in human being.

Currently being a realtor of 20 a long time, I know agents wake up every morning to glance for a work. We don’t have a work until eventually we have prospects. I know how essential it is to have constant prospects, primarily for a new agent. I have been running out of my own satellite office for extra than a 10 years, the only explanation to set up my own satellite office is to have obligation flooring time to myself so I can have all the prospects. I was fortunate to have the fiscal capability to do so, which took my company to another degree. To a place that I could not acquire all the stroll-ins and I had to refer these prospects out to other agents in my office which I still do. Now with the support of technologies, I want to change the brick and mortar offices online so all agents can advantage from what I have reached devoid of the expense of receiving their own authentic estate office or be on obligation in their offices. That is why I identified as this App a virtual office for an agent. It can make me really feel excellent that I can gain a little something by sharing the App dependent on my own expertise.
