Supercharge Your Prospecting Calls With A Power Dialer
In the fast-paced world of real estate, agents need prospecting tools that will help them be more productive and efficient. One tool every agent should have is a Power Dialer. Dialers enable agents to have more conversations in less time so they can focus on what really matters – building relationships and closing deals.
In this blog, we’ll review what Power Dialers are, why you should use one, how to increase pickup rates, and how to stay compliant with local calling laws.
What’s a Power Dialer?
Power Dialers help agents avoid the hassle of tediously dialing numbers by hand. They also manage busy, unanswered, and disconnected calls so you can stay focused and ready to have your next conversation. They include features such as call recording, voicemail drop, call analytics, and CRM integrations to improve an agent’s overall productivity.
Why use a Power Dialer?
Real estate is a numbers game – the amount of money you make is directly correlated with how many conversations you have. A Power Dialer streamlines your calls by increasing your conversations per hour, eliminating tedious distractions, and helping you make more calls in less time. In fact, a Power Dialer can help double your conversations and contacts. Agents who use a dialer are considered twice as likely to earn $80,000/yr (or more) compared to agents who don’t.
Which Power Dialer should I choose?
There are a lot of different Power Dialers out there, so which one should you choose? We recommend using a dialer that integrates with your lead service provider and matches your prospecting skill level. For example, REDX’s Power Dialer is seamlessly integrated with their lead prospecting platform so all you have to do is choose your leads and click “Dial” to start calling. And depending on your comfort and experience level, you can dial between 1-3 lines at a time to increase your contact rate.
How much do Power Dialers cost?
Power dialers typically cost between $100-200/month. The REDX power dialer, for example, is $99.99/month for their standard dialer, or $149.99/month for their PLUS dialer. Both dialers offer unlimited talk time, the ability to call through your phone or computer, free support, and call recording features.

How can I maximize my contact rate?
No matter which dialer you use, some phone carriers may mark your number as “spam.” A good way to avoid this is by attaining a verified phone number. One of the easiest ways to get a verified phone number is through Google Voice for Business. And since most Power Dialers allow you to choose and change the number you call from, this strategy is a quick and easy solution to avoid being marked as “spam” and increase your contact rates.
NOTE: if you subscribe to REDX’s Power Dialer PLUS after May 1, 2023, you’ll get a verified business number through their Spam Protection feature for free.
How can I ensure safe, ethical prospecting calls?
There are risks associated with prospecting over the phone. But if you educate yourself, you can drastically reduce risk for yourself. As a salesperson, you are required to follow all rules associated with the DNC Registry.
Reputable lead services like REDX will help you avoid calling DNC numbers by providing you with warnings before you start a prospecting session. Ultimately, compliance with the DNC rules and regulations is up to you – so before using a dialer, educate yourself, make informed decisions, and call wisely.
The best time to call is NOW
When it comes to using a Power Dialer, the main problem agents run into is call avoidance. Because prospecting can be intimidating… but it doesn’t have to be difficult. With quality leads, a solid mindset, and the right tools – prospecting is only as scary and difficult as you let it be. So what are you waiting for? Stop avoiding your calls and invest in a more efficient way to prospect.
