Good afternoon Joan,
I feel that one of the point to be developed is a better and easier way of communication between Agents.
As I was an Agent in Palm Springs ,ÇA, Benion Deville Homes have an inter-office mail system where Agents can communicate directly, on any subject: New listing, price change, open house, financing, legal news, looking for a contractor, looking for any kind of help. The system let you target the selected branches that you want to communicate with, and goes to all the agents of that branche. You can selected of course as many branches as you want.
Beside creating a corporate spirit and identity, it is a very easy way to find help and promote your listings. As to contractors , once recommended by Agents, you feel more comfortable to suggest that specific contractor to a client, and being recommended as such the contractor will give best service and price in order to preserve his position.
I know that today Keyes system is to send email to Luis and ask him to spread it. But it's too complicated , and Luis would never have the time to forward many requests. He is a very busy person, having better stuff to do.
At BDhomes, I was and am receiving daily communications through the system some days up to 10 mails.
Should you wish so, I could stop by and show you the system. I am sure that inside Keyes connect, a simple software writer could add it very easily. Nothing complicated there.
Again I feel that in today's world of business, efficient communication is critical to any deal.
