As any real estate agent and broker will attest, response time is key to earning you a spot at the top of the buyer and seller pyramid. In today’s world of instant gratification, brokers and agents have to be quick on the draw if they’re going to earn their clients’ business.
Our partners at dotloop understand the importance of being first and efficient. Here are four simple ways to help you take those hang-ups off hold and hit go.
1. Text Messenger
Our latest mobile features help streamline transactions to improve client response times and help you get deals done faster when you’re at the office or on the move.
1. Have a Security Plan And Follow It
All mobile phones and tablets used for business should be password-protected. Even better, use bio-metric authentication, such as a fingerprint or face scan, which cannot be replicated. Bio-metrics also make a strong password for apps.
Use a password manager to generate and store a different password for every account.
Know which data and apps are on a device and remove any apps that are not necessary for business. While the user may see a functioning app, like a flashlight or game, in the background, the program may be secretly sending information to a third party. Domingo Guerra, co-founder and president at mobile security firm Appthority, refers to these apps as “hospital gown” threats. The programs appear to be legitimate upfront and are even distributed in the major app stores, but they have a security gap in the back end. To be sure, only install apps from reputable developers and services, such as the Apple App Store and Google Play.
