You’ll need a great CRM software for this. There are many out there from the very basic to the insanely complex and customizable.
Close.io is a great new one that integrates email, SMS, and dialer follow up to automate and track every interaction so your team always sounds smart on the phone, and you close more deals.
- Live Chat
Consumers and business owners are busier than ever. Time and attention are in very short supply. Buyer and sellers are making less and less effort. They want an immediate answer or they’ll keep hopping onto the next offer. Instead of relying on email or the phone and managing to connect with leads in follow up, live chat features can give you an upper hand.
There is Facebook messenger and Facebook chatbots for those real estate investors who are heavy on this social media channel.
Drift is one of the more recent additions to the line up of website live chat tools that can help you instantly connect with visitors and convert them into deals.

Even create your own brand filters so that all of your messaging and materials carry the same feel.
- Email Automation Software
Email is still a very big deal in real estate lead generation. Most professionals still prefer email above most other methods of communication. If you’re not building an email database and using it, you are throwing away money and deals, and a lot of time.
There are many email software choices to pick from. Most do exactly the same things. The biggest differences are price, how well they integrate with other software tools you use and ease of use.
Mailchimp is one of the easiest to get started with. It’s free until you get a pretty sizable database. It integrates with probably the largest number of other software tools you’ll be using in your real estate lead generation.
- Project Management & Team Collaboration
To get and keep everyone on your teams on the same page and working through the steps efficiently, you’ll need some type of project management software. Freedcamp is free. Trello has been popular for years. Wrike is a newer option that is simple to use and emails your team their daily tasks each morning.
One of the most overlooked team and customer communication tools today is Whatsapp. It rolls all of the benefits of team meeting software, direct messaging, collaboration and more into one tool. One which seems to have become even more popular that Skype and Slack. Use to to share files, text customers, quickly switch across SMS, voice and video calls and avoid the noise of other channels.
