"We've worked tirelessly over the past six months to keep pushing the envelope on innovation and build Chime into the ultimate all-in-one platform for real estate agents," said Matt Murphy, Chief Marketing Officer of Chime. "We founded the company because we saw how inefficient and old-school the real estate 'technology' industry was, and we are thrilled to be back at Inman Connect six months later to showcase how far we've come. We are transforming the business of selling real estate."
New and improved features include:
Broker Suite and Subdomains
Chime added a brokerage suite that allows brokerage offices to use the product with agents and teams below them. In addition, Chime launched subdomains which enable brokerages to have a main domain, and the people and/or teams under them to have subdomains with their own look and feel. These subdomain sites can focus on the individual more specifically, allowing them to run their own ads and funnel leads into their own version of the Chime CRM system, while also including listings from the main site.
Lead Generation Cooperation Program
Since August, Chime has also launched a lead generation cooperation program on the lender side which enables agents to partner with lenders and share the cost of leads generated on the platform 50-50. This makes it possible for agents to receive money and share expenses, as well as collaborate on leads with that lender, whether that means sharing prequalification letters or collaborating on documents. Deeper collaboration creates more transparency and speeds up the process of completing deals, since there is no questioning or guess work.
Virtual Phone Numbers
Chime now offers a virtual phone number, which allows agents to make phone calls and send text messages directly from their CRM system. They can also automate text messages via the virtual number, which helps streamline communications with their prospects.
Chime has continued to make usability upgrades across its platform in order to deliver the best possible user experience, drive efficiency, and yield results. The company built more integrations, such as Microsoft Exchange, and improved existing ones, such as Mailchimp and Zapier. It also launched an updated mobile app, which includes a redesign with a fresher look and additional features around the ability to filter and communicate with leads.
Mobile innovation is a core part of what differentiates Chime in the market. It is the first mobile workflow management solution for agents that enables them to seamlessly work on-the-go. The platform leverages advanced technology to streamline workflows and automate mundane tasks, so agents can focus on what they do best—selling. Chime can save agents dozens of hours each month, simplify their lives, and make their businesses more efficient. By freeing up time for agents to spend building stronger relationships with customers, Chime helps agents make more money. With all these new features, Chime is pushing the real estate industry into the next generation—and the company is just getting started.
Chime operates as a US subsidiary of Renren, Inc. (NYSE: RENN) and offers multiple packages, ranging from $300/month for the CRM package to $500/month for the buyer marketing package. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or (650) 690-2555, or visit www.chime.me
