With complicated office schedules and a multitude of options out there, Realtors have many options to consider when it comes to answers phones. The study by Pew found that American place the most importance on email for communication. There were 60% of people ranked email very important compared to only 35% who described landlines the same way.
Meanwhile, cellphones lagged behind all these options with a 24% ranking.
For Realtors, the answer really isn’t up to us. It’s up to our clients. We have to be available how they want us to be available. The best way I’ve found to do this is with Ringcentral. There are many other services other there (Grasshopper, Skype) but they didn’t quite work for me.
