LaToya Hayes is a planner and likes to be organized. Sometimes in the real estate profession, however, last-minute changes occur.

That’s when Hayes is happy her MLS, Midwest Real Estate Data (MRED), subscribes to ShowingTime for the MLS.

“[A few weeks ago] I went to show some places and a guy asked if there was anything else we could go see,” said Hayes, a broker for Century 21 in Chicagoland. “I’m very organized, I like to have paper in front of me, codes, everything else I have to do, but ShowingTime really helps me out.

“Why? Because if I’m doing something last minute where I’m not able to write down a code, I already have ShowingTime. It gives me a confirmation [via] text message and also in the app. So either way I’m covered. It makes me feel more secure about last-minute appointments and situations I might be in.”

ShowingTime for the MLS is an online scheduling tool that enables agents to request and schedule showings through the MLS’s website and confirm showings via two-way texting or the mobile app – both of which eliminate phone tag and make the showing process less complicated. Agents also can easily request feedback and have access to reports such as the Listing Activity Report, Activity on Comparables, Showings I Have Requested and more.

The Enhanced Notifications package MRED subscribes to gives agents tools to ask customized questions and include company branding and photos. All of the feedback options are accessible from a computer, tablet or the ShowingTime mobile app, with requests automatically sent to the showing agent via email and/or push notification.

The system also includes ShowingCart®, which enables agents to schedule several showings at once while automatically mapping the Tour.

Hayes said the convenience of the ShowingTime mobile app is the biggest perk of being a ShowingTime customer.

“The biggest selling point, I would say, is that it’s right there in front of you,” said Hayes of why she would recommend ShowingTime. “As soon as you schedule the appointment … you get a reminder. We need that in our lives. We see so many places, we need a reminder.”

The ShowingTime mobile app is a great enhancement to your current ShowingTime services. You can download the app for free to your Android or iPhone. Questions? Feel free to contact us anytime to learn more.
