Missing Calls Means Losing Business
Due to all of the time spent outside of the office and attending appointments, it can be easy to miss a phone call. In the property management business, missing a phone call might mean missing a sale.
Customers are keen on having their questions answered right away. If incoming questions are not addressed in a timely manner, a customer will move on to your competitor.
A call center for property management companies doesn’t have to just passively wait for inquiries to come in. A proactive answering service will also conduct regular tenant satisfaction surveys on your behalf. This allows property managers to identify and correct issues before they become major problems. As these issues are addressed, property managers build the impression that they are responsive to tenants’ needs. This responsiveness tends to make tenants more inclined to renew their leases.

The best tool for a property management business is word-of-mouth advertising. Customers refer their friends, family and business connections that provide the best leads for properties. It takes a lot of time and effort for a property management business to get good reviews, however, it does not take as many bad experiences to generate negative reviews. A quick look on a review site such as Yelp, or at the ratings on a Facebook business page will show that in many cases negative reviews outweigh positive reviews. People possess the desire to keep their friends from having a bad experience, and if that means posting it for the world to see, they will do it.
