VoicePad gives you the confidence to empower your buyers to search “on their own.” Simply register their mobile phone number and e-mail address so that they can search the entire local inventory from their own mobile phone! Your buyers simply dial your system phone number and enter the house number of any listed property. They’ll hear updated bilingual property information and receive a follow up e-mail with a link to the property page on your website! Registering agents are provided a record of the buyer’s activity. Stop wasting your valuable time and gas driving potential buyers around town. VoicePad provides a better way!  Work more buyers simultaneously  Utilize mobile automation to attract more qualified buyers  Fully bilingual (English and Spanish)  Protect your buyers by registering their mobile phone number(s)  Never hear again: “I just didn’t want to bother you, so I called the listing agent.”  Effectively incubate buyers over a long period of time if your prospects stop looking for a property, but re-engage 3 months later - VoicePad lets the registering agent know that their prospects have re-engaged.
