Are you excited for your time off this Thanksgiving? Or are you currently working in the real estate industry? Real Estate may slow down, but it doesn’t fall asleep during the holidays. We want you to spend time with your family this holiday season. Read more to find out how you can do this.
How to Get The Most Out of Thanksgiving Break as a REALTOR®
Putting your business on hold during Thanksgiving doesn’t mean you need to fall off the face of the earth. Keep those real estate leads warm throughout the winter! Some might notice a drop in home sales during the winter compared to summer. Summer home sales are the results of a lead doing their research in the winter! You can still be there for your future clients without actually being there.
Update Your Out of Office Message
Always have the basics to an Out of Office Message: greeting, time you will be gone, when you will be back, etc. Also try to make it fun and relatable. “I’m taking a few days from November 22-26 to spend Thanksgiving with my family. I will respond to your email when I get back, Happy Thanksgiving!”. This also applies to your voicemail.
Does your website provider offer you automation services? Take advantage of it! Or at least schedule your emails to go out during that week. Zurple’s Conversations™ software will continue to email your real estate leads for you during the Thanksgiving week. They will be sent property update notifications and automated emails responding to their behavior. With the new improvements to the email tool, feel free to send out a holiday greeting as well.
Reminders for When You Return
We hope you enjoy your vacation, but not too much because you will eventually need to return to reality. If you use a voice AI assistant like Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa, create reminders for yourself for the date your return to the office!
For Zurple clients, you will be able to create reminders through your back office that will email and/or text you on the date and time you choose!
