ShowingTime President Michael Lane today announced the company is launching an enhanced agent-to-agent messaging platform that will equip more than 950,000 real estate agents in 200 U.S. and Canadian markets to connect with each other through ShowingTime via texts, mobile app, email and desktop.
The agent-to-agent messaging enhancement is aimed at improving communication while also helping to further streamline the showing appointment scheduling process.
“We’re excited to announce this major new product functionality,” Lane said. “We’ve been collaborating with our MLS and Association clients on their messaging needs to create this enhancement. It is common for agents to correspond prior to scheduling a showing. With this new functionality, they will be able to do so, then immediately book showings when needed. We think this feature will be especially helpful in markets with limited inventory where offers are made as soon as the property goes ‘Active’ in the MLS.
