What’s More Important than Ever? Team Communications

Despite social distancing, communication is crucial for real estate teams. Agents need to engage with each other and brokers should help them stay connected.

NEW YORK – Despite the need for social distancing, communication is crucial for real estate teams. Agents need to engage with each other, and companies need to help employees stay connected.

There are a number of ways to facilitate internal communication and encourage a sense of stability, including weekly check-ins or meetings using one of many tools available.

Zoom is particularly useful for sales meetings and training, while Slack enhances communication across the entire team. Slack users can also collaborate remotely and share documents, images and other assets.

Ring Central is an effective and secure platform that allows team members to message, share tasks, video conference, and engage with one another.

Google Hangouts and Google Docs can be used for weekly training meetings as well as sharing ideas and insights on ways to stay strong and optimistic.

Other options include weekly newsletters that provide area updates, company policy changes or other decisions that affect how staff members conduct business. The newsletters should include links for everyday resources such as online education classes or even a company that sells signs.
