Real Estate related emails going crazy? Folio to the rescue! Browsing through your emails especially if you to find something of important value may not be helpful if you have years of transactions, personal communication and just about a piece of everything that clutters your emails. Want to breathe from all this chaos? Read on.
Disclaimer: This is for Gmail users only. So, if you don't have one, this may not be for you now but you might consider switching over to Google. I'd recommend GSuite - offers a ton of apps to help your business run like a true business, check it out here. Stop using your PERSONAL email for BUSINESS!
Since you continued, I assume you have a Gmail account. Great! So..what am I talking about? I know how it feels to be digging through your emails to find conversations, related emails, documents, etc regarding your listings or transactions with your clients. What if you could optimize your email and boost it so it would find related emails, put it in a folder where both you and your clients can see it plus other awesome features that works for your real estate needs. How cool? Yes, only Folio can do it!
As their tagline says "Folio automatically organizes your transactions and helps keep everyone on track." which it actually does. It's a Chrome extension, so downloading and installing it is a breeze. When I tried it, there's virtually no learning curve. Folio guides you as a beginner on items you need to learn and you'd be surprised how things can start getting organized.
So how does Folio do it? Once you sign-up and ready to begin, it'll prompt you to enter an address (works for buyers, sellers or both). Folio will search all your emails for everything related to this address - contacts associated with the emails, related files and emails, etc and organizes them so it would show up neatly.
You also get a timeline, that looks like below which is super amazing. You can input the dates giving you and your clients an overview of how much time you have and it even reminds you when it's almost due! Share files, add contacts related to the transactions, it can only make you become better in what you do and save you a ton of time looking for things.
