In Australia Real Estate Business (REB) reports on a new technology platform, launched early in July which connects agents directly with prospective home buyers it says could change the way both parties behave and interact.
Box+Dice has announced the launch of its app, which will be available to both agents and consumers. The app enables prospective home buyers to chat live with agents, as well as increasing agents’ conversion rates, according to the software provider.
“Agents can now chat directly with buyers in a live chat and save these individual threads for future reference, retrace steps with a real estate timeline and access any contact in the Box+Dice database,” founder and CEO of Box+Dice Travis Williams said.
“Consumers now have one central place to search, manage and communicate with agents while navigating their way through the buying process. They may also ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ various attributes of properties and the app will help them find better matched listings based on their needs,” he said.
The chat, which is in real time, will be recorded directly into the agent’s CRM and will enable real estate professionals to manage their relationships with clients using a “professional social networking platform”, according to Mr Williams.
