What has your voicemail cost you?
- Management Leads
- Negative Reviews
- Longer Days on Market
- Patience of Callers
While current clients and tenants will leave a voicemail due to the fact that their already contractually obligated to work with someone who’s unreachable, people who are unfamiliar with your business (New Management Leads & Prospective Tenants) who are reaching out for information are likely to keep moving down the list until they get a live answer.
What calls do I send to Phone Tenders?
Different management companies use us in different capacities.
- Some use us as a Virtual Front Desk screening all of their calls.
- Others use us as a back up for Overflow & Afterhours.
- Answer questions
- Schedule showings
New Management Calls
We’ll check to see if your BDM (or whoever is responsible for selling your services) is available. If not, we’ll gather info like:
- Contact Info
- Reason for shopping
- Desired monthly rent
We can even schedule a management presentation, or schedule a call back.
Assuming it’s NOT an emergency, we’ll point the tenant to their portal while explaining that’s the fastest way to get their needs met. If they’re not able to do that, we can take a message and get it to your maintenance coordinator.
Emergency call center coming in 4th Q 2021
This is when we call ahead to the person they’d need to speak with, see if they’re available (if so) we connect the call personally and then dismiss ourselves.
This option is for when they need to only speak with one individual or non urgent matters, where if you’re not available they can leave a message on your personal voicemail.
Take a message
If you’re not available for a warm transfer, or if this type of call is not time sensitive we can take a message, and send it to you via Email so that you can address it when you’re ready.
Schedule a meeting
For people you’d like to speak with, just not right at this moment we can use calendly (or similar appointment setting app) to schedule a time to meet that’s convenient for you.
