Margaret von Werssowetz has always been active in her community and interested in trying new things.
The South Carolina native was part of the University of South Carolina’s first class of The Honors College, a member of numerous committees while living in Boston, and was intrigued by cell phones when they first rose to popularity in the early 1990s.
So von Werssowetz, who returned home with her family to South Carolina in 1989, decided to become a real estate agent in 1991. She’s since built a loyal following in Charleston, where she now works at Handsome Properties, and has been recognized as a member of the Realtors® of Distinction, which acknowledges the top 10 percent of producing Charleston Realtors®.
Aside from her early interest in cell phones, there was another technological innovation von Werssowetz started using early in its infancy: the ShowingTime Appointment Center.
“[I] started using way back when [it] first began – something new,” von Werssowetz said.
The ShowingTime Appointment Center acts as a personal assistant for real estate professionals and is available for single agents, offices or entire MLSs. It features appointment specialists on hand 24/7/365 to schedule and confirm appointments – often in 15 minutes or less – as well as communicate showing details to the listing agent, showing agent and seller.
But those features only scratch the surface of what subscribers of the ShowingTime Appointment Center receive. It also includes ShowingCart, which is an easier and more efficient way to set up tours for a full day of showings with buyers.
“When I want to set up an outing with a buyer, it is so much more efficient and easy to create a ShowingCart than it is to call,” von Werssowetz said. “Once things are confirmed, I have a jiffy print out to take with me when I show.”
In addition to never missing a call, the ShowingTime Appointment Center automatically requests feedback for agents – with an 80 percent hit rate in many markets – and provides access to reports such as the Listing Activity Report, Activity on Comparables, Showings I Have Requested and more.
“Having a record of the showings for my listings, along with your follow up feedback and activity reports, is such an organized way for me to keep track [of everything],” von Werssowetz said. “It’s also impressive to send to my sellers.”
As a longtime subscriber to the ShowingTime Appointment Center, von Werssowetz endorses the service for real estate agents looking to save time, increase organization and impress their clients.
“I heartily recommend ShowingTime because it saves you a great deal of time, keeps you organized, gives you marvelous reports, creates a record of everything and impresses your client,” von Werssowetz said.
