One year after her MLS changed vendors and decided to supply its members with the ShowingTime Appointment Center and online scheduling, Valerie Dupree is thrilled with the many features available within the ShowingTime system compared to the previous vendor.
Dupree, a realtor at HomeTowne Realty in Clayton, North Carolina, is a member of Triangle MLS, Inc., which in June 2017 selected the ShowingTime Appointment Center to equip its 11,000 subscribers to manage showings.
The offering enables TMLS subscribers to schedule showings online through their MLS system, the ShowingTime mobile app or by calling the ShowingTime Appointment Center 24/7/365.
At the time, TMLS CEO Tessa Hultz said: “ShowingTime’s advanced technology will be a great resource for our subscribers.
It has, indeed, been just that for Dupree and other TMLS members.
“This is a much more integrated system with so many features available,” Dupree said. “When I am out showing properties, if I open the ShowingTime app, it knows where I am and when I arrive at a property address. That is a very helpful feature.”
The ShowingTime Appointment Center has appointment specialists available 24/7/365 to schedule and confirm appointments — often in 15 minutes or less — as well as communicate the details to the listing agent, seller and buyer’s agent.
“This makes showings much quicker and properties more accessible in a quicker amount of time,” said Dupree, a 15-year real estate veteran and top producer.
In addition to never missing a call, the ShowingTime Appointment Center automatically requests feedback for agents – with an 80 percent success rate in many markets – and provides access to reports such as the Listing Activity Report, Activity on Comparables, Showings I Have Requested and more
And, for all TMLS agents, the calls, emails and messages sent by the ShowingTime Appointment Center on their behalf are personally branded with their agent photo and office logo.
MLSs or Associations who subscribe to the ShowingTime Appointment Center for all of their members also receive online scheduling through ShowingTime for the MLS. This enables agents to request and schedule showings through the MLS’s website and confirm showings via two-way texting or the mobile app – both of which eliminate phone tag and make the showing process less complicated.
“Because of the technology and awesome app, this makes showing homes much easier,” Dupree said.
