Brokers, Agents, Buyers and Sellers are Jumping on the Texting TrainTerry Riffe | July 2, 2015
Most people would agree that there are more options and ways to connect with others than ever before – including texting. Cell phones, email, social media, and video chatting have opened up a whole new world of possibilities. For REALTORS®, this means two things-there are more ways to connect with clients and prospective buyers, and REALTORS® must be open to all forms of communication and technology to suit those clients’ needs and preferences. And according to the National Association of REALTORS® 2015 Member Profile, REALTORS® today prefer to speak to clients via text messages While that number is still smaller than emailing and chatting over the phone (which 93 percent of REALTORS® prefer to use, respectively), only 40 percent of REALTORS® preferred to text clients just five years ago, signaling a shift to better assist clients and meet their needs.
I have found that texting saves time and is a simple way to quickly pass along pertinent information. If you are interested in listing your home or are in the market for Investment/Vacation property, phone or text me 1 (407) 800-0888 or send me an email An@orlandovacationrealty.com.
