Team ProposalPoint, I just wanted to let you know that I won a listing yesterday over another agent, mainly due to the Proposal Point software.
They were so impressed by the proposal that all the other agents really had no chance.

From the first proposal we sent out to a potential vendor we realised this was going to be a game changer for us, I use this for all of my sales appraisals and the potential vendors soon turn in the vendors for Lynham Real Estate!

ProposalPoint allows us to contact clients at the most suitable time. When we are notified of the proposal being opened, is when we call. It's more appropriate and our agents are there when questions need to be answered. There is less delay, making the process more seamless which results in our company winning more listings.

I have looked at and used some other software packages for proposals over the years, however ProposalPoint is the only provider I have seen that allows our proposals to be built quickly and easily, are fully customisable and on brand every time!
