Technology as a whole is continuously advancing, and as the development of voice-assisted devices expands, many are finding additional ways in how to make these improvements work for them, sometimes in unconventional ways. For today’s consumer, there are numerous options to choose from: Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa & Echo, and Microsoft’s Cortana. These devices are simply changing the way we see and interact with homes.
Companies are also finding AI voice technology beneficial for their business and office structure. Brokerages recognize that voice-powered devices have the ability to impact the way service is provided for their clients and consumers. Just for office efficiency alone, many tedious tasks can be taken care of, freeing up valuable time for workers to focus on more crucial tasks — setting reminders, calendar invites, adjusting the light and temperature, and ordering office supplies, all can be done with a voice assistant.
Some agents are finding resourceful ways to utilize voice bots during their open houses. Using a voice-assisted bot, like a transportable Bluetooth-enabled device, to help welcome guests as they enter a home is a fun way to keep your open house unique and interesting. Programming a device to answer visitor’s questions about the neighborhood or the home’s characteristics can help enhance the quality of the listing. Not only can AI technology help with the useful logistics at an open house, like answering specific questions about the listing, but it can also serve as a tool to help set the mood by adjusting the lighting and music while Realtors® attend to more personable tasks with potential clients.
Staying ahead of the curve by implanting attention-grabbing and beneficial techniques with voice-assisted devices is one of the best ways you can grow your business and gain new clients.
