When you think about the communication methods you use in your professional life, face to face is still the most important for commercial real estate brokers, followed by the trusty phone call.
But then it’s email. Being efficient and communicating your message clearly and succinctly doesn’t just save you time and energy, it saves your clients time and energy.
To be an effective broker, you should be able to do a couple things when it comes to email: You should know how to manage your inbox so it doesn’t overflow with urgent messages, but also doesn’t suck all the time out of your day because you’re responding to everything immediately. You should be able to send a message that gets your point across and prompts action, but doesn’t take long to read. And you should know how and when to use mass email to amplify your message and brand.
Fortunately, there are tools and resources out there that can help with all of this. Even if you’re already good at email, you can always stand to be a bit better. Here’s how.
Here at Apto, we’re all about giving commercial real estate brokers simple tools to put your information to work. Our CRM organizes your data the way you think and applies it the way you work. Here’s one of the ways we help you close more deals faster.
We call it Buyers Needs (or Tenants Needs, if that’s your thing), and it helps you prospect and find likely buyers quickly and easily.

Watch the video to see how it works
Too many times have I heard the story about the one "tech savvy" broker or the transaction coordinator who gets tasked with exporting contacts from the CRM and importing them into Mailchimp to send a new email campaign.
If you're that person, then you know the steps involved. And moreover, you know just how inefficient that process is.
There's no reason to do it that way. You don't need two different tools to store your contacts and then email them.
We recently enhanced our existing Mailchimp integration so you can effortlessly send marketing emails straight from your CRM, where you already keep everything organized. (And of course, we have similar integrations with other email providers as well.)
Sounds nice, right? Here’s a little more about why we did it and how it works.
For many brokers, creating marketing materials for a property is a frustrating ordeal.
Even if you have the technology in place to create websites and brochures, you’re often entering details over and over, wondering if you missed something, or fiddling with the formatting. Then once the site is out there, you’re left sifting through unqualified leads.
And what about those off-market deals that you know you can sell, but don’t necessarily have the budget for materials that can help showcase the property?
You don’t have time or resources for all that. You need a professional website that’s easy to create, that’s built from the system you already have in place, with a centralized hub to organize and follow up with the leads that you reach out to or that come in on their own.
Well, we’ve got good news. We just launched Apto Property Sites, our latest product feature designed to help you work your deals more efficiently.
Join us for a live webinar on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 1 p.m. CT to see how Apto is driving deal flow more efficiently and effectively for nearly 10,000 commercial real estate brokers.

Here’s a little bit more of a preview about what you’ll see.
If you want more opportunities to win new business, you don't have to prospect more aggressively. You just have to prospect smarter.
It starts by ensuring you contact the right people at the right time. To do that, you need to have your information organized the right way. Then you have to have the right information on hand to make a quick connection.
