Hear about Will’s experience with ClientLook CRM, and how he uses our commercial real estate software in his day to day business operations:
Can you tell me a little bit about your business? What do you specialize in?
Will: I specialize in leasing and selling industrial and office properties in Southern California. I played professional football for several years, so I have a unique network of people who are looking for investment opportunities.
When did you start using ClientLook?
Will: I started using ClientLook a little over a year ago. My mentor and senior partner, Mike Tingus, uses ClientLook so I am following his lead and learning from him. Since I am fairly new to the commercial real estate industry, I am an open book and am trying to learn everything I can to be successful.
How has ClientLook helped you start your business?
Will: ClientLook has helped me organize my contacts and streamline my business. Over the past year I have tried to soak up as much information as I could, and I am much more efficient this year than I was last year. I attribute that to using ClientLook every day. ClientLook gave me a foundation for my business, and it’s the backbone of everything I do.
What features do you like the most about ClientLook?
Will: I really like the Virtual Assistant since it creates so much efficiency. It’s easy to scan and email new business cards to the VA with notes and how I want them to be categorized. It saves me time and is a very useful tool. The iPhone app is also very helpful since I can access all of my information from anywhere. Sometimes I want to stop in and visit with a potential client, and I can quickly access the person’s name, details about the last time we spoke, and all of the information I have in my database for that contact.
How would you describe your overall experience with the ClientLook team?
Will: My experience with ClientLook has been phenomenal! ClientLook is a great tool and one of my main goals for this year is to master all of the features in a way that is specifically in line with how I run my business. I am currently in the phase of planting seeds, making new connections, and categorizing my contacts to create a pipeline. I know that as my business continues to grow, I will get more and more out of ClientLook.
I have to say that Greg Hoard has been amazing and a huge help! He is available whenever I need him, and he has done a great job of teaching me the fundamentals and features. It’s nice to have someone that I can reach out to whenever I have a question or want to expand my knowledge of the software.
What advice would you give to someone who is looking for a CRM?
Will: Go with ClientLook! Seriously, the ClientLook team will help you tremendously. They offer an amazing service, and I like that they’re always adding new features to make the software even better and easier to use. I am very grateful that this CRM exists!
