Introducing The Ecosystem of Real Estate
The real estate industry is one of multiple complexities, each of which ties into one another, affecting the progression, growth, and success of the deal. If you don’t have the proper strategy and supporting tools, navigating through the process can, at times, seem futile.
When looking at the real estate process we can identify a few key stakeholders that need to efficiently work together to close a deal. These stakeholders are the buyer’s agent, seller’s agent, buyer, seller, and brokerage. All of which have different roles and importance, but must work together in every transaction. When operating smoothly, the transaction seamlessly runs its course. However, we all know what it feels like to work a deal where one or multiple of these stakeholders fail to work together efficiently. In order to avoid this in future deals, a simple change in mindset can ensure a smooth and efficient transaction.
By viewing the real estate industry as an ecosystem, one where all stakeholders must work together and affect one another, a number of actions present themselves. Here are a few tips to help you better navigate the complexities of the real estate transaction.
Centralize your business
Seeing as all parties of an ecosystem affect one another, it is absolutely vital that the systems you use tie in all members of the transaction. By operating in a centralized system, you can ensure a streamlined process that truly maximizes the benefits of the ecosystem.
Integrate your showings into your CRM
Managing your client and agent relations with a CRM is the first step towards bringing organization to your business; integrating showing management into that CRM is the second. When there is a systemized separation between your clients and their showings, you are creating unnecessary barriers in your business operations.
Solidify your reputation
It’s no secret that the competition among real estate agents is fierce. The agent with the greatest following, strongest reputation, and most impressive stats has the most leverage in any stage of the deal. Establishing yourself as a brand in the eye of the public is essential in humanizing your business, vetting your success, and creating a reputation that precedes you.
Bring flexibility to your schedule
The day-to-day of an agent can change at a moment’s notice with listings cycling in the market, client demands changing, and unexpected circumstances arising. It can be hard to stay organized and make time for your own life as well. Ensuring your schedule is flexible allows for greater freedom when working with clients who don’t know what they want, agents with poor communication and drastically improved work-life balance.

The vision of a single platform integrating every aspect of the real estate ecosystem is exactly why we created Showingly. Showingly is the first real estate platform to unite the agent, buyer, seller and brokerage, creating a premier technology stack to help you navigate this complex industry with simplicity and ease.

This allows agents to schedule showings with clients, streamline communication and provide more transparency to clients, all while automatically logging information improving how you manage your relationships and your deals.
First-ever agent social media platform
While client relations are what drives your business, your reputation among agents is just as important. Showingly is the first platform to connect you with other agents through our exclusive social experience. This allows agents to build their reputation, their brand, and learn the ins and outs of the agent on the other side of the deal.
Showing flexibility and calendar
At the end of the day, Showingly is here to simplify your business. We wouldn’t be complete without an organized way to prioritize convenience in your schedule and the schedule of your clients. The Showingly calendar allows you to check conflicts against upcoming scheduled showings, while Showingly delegation allows you to delegate a showing to a licensed, noncompetitive agent. This means that Showingly gives you the ability to be in two places at once, ensuring your clients see the homes they want, even when you can’t be there.
