Estate Agency, Start Up

Are you considering becoming a self-employed estate agent? Becoming self-employed is an empowering step, it’s an opportunity to manage your own time, and strive for a better balance in life.

Being self-employed can allow you to work when you want and how you want, but it’s not without its challenges. Just because you’re working for yourself, doesn’t mean you need to be working by yourself!

It’s easier to juggle the things that matter and grow a stable income when you have support, but you don’t need to take on the financial and logistical burden of staff, instead consider using the services of a Virtual Receptionist. At CSnotepad we can answer your incoming calls as though your own in-house receptionist. We can take messages, deal with general enquiries, even book in appointments, handling each call in just the way you choose. Each call is answered with your own personalised business greeting, and the small team assigned to your calls will get to know you, your business, and even your clients. Your clients will get to know them too, but they’ll never realise they haven’t reached your business directly, it’s what we pride ourselves on.

2 big bonuses to having your calls answered:

Most callers wont leave a voicemail
Firstly, the property industry is extremely competitive, when starting out as a self-employed estate agent you’ll likely be heavily reliant on referrals. Don’t see potential clients turn to a competitor because they can’t reach you. When you are with a client or at an appointment, your callers don’t want to be reaching your voicemail. Have all your calls answered by a
friendly and professional virtual receptionist here at CSnotepad – boosting your customer service model, helping you grow a loyal customer base, and creating a well-established and professional business image.

Giving you the freedom you’ve been looking for
Secondly, without the distraction of the ringing phone, you can focus your time and energy on growing your estate agency business without interruption. We can answer your calls outside of standard business hours (further boosting your customer service reputation), and even 24/7 if you need it, truly creating the freedom you need to improve your work-life balance.
