We are delighted to announce a new step forward in messaging from Propertybase GO! In our Propertybase GO CRM, we have added a new Texting features, some of which the old components were noted as SMS.
Now you can send links properties, converse, and create both blast and drip campaigns via text!
Please Note: That to utilize this feature, Agents will need to have Contact Management turned on and a cell phone number present. Additionally, phone numbers are assigned to match the Agent area code if possible. If this is not possible, the area code of the brokerage will be used. At this time, we are not able to bring in numbers from other services (personal cell phones).
Step by Step
Sending a Property:
admin > property of choice > 3 circle menu on property card > text to contact
Now you can quickly send properties to client by just clicking and sending directly to their phone! When a property is sent in this method, the text will come from the Agent's assigned phone number through our system. However, upon response, client messages will be sent back to the Agents personal or primary number.

Q: Are there guidelines or stipulations on text messages?
A: Yes, there are. We have an additional article that we recommend here
Q: Do drip campaign text messages appear in the two-way Text dialogue on the contact automatically?
A: Yes, all texts sent to the contact (Property Alerts from Saved Searches, Action Plan Messages, Drip Campaign Messages, Text Blasts and Texting a Property to a Lead) appear in the Text Message thread with the contact so that when the contact replies there is context for the agent in that thread for the reply.
How does this differ for agents?
Agents and Brokers will both have access to these options, however Brokers will be able to design these text message layouts for blasts for all other Agents or a particular Agent to use.
