Kevin Miller Shares His Secrets of Success

Kevin Miller Case Study
Kevin Miller

Call Capture Hotlines haven’t always had the best reputation in the real estate industry. Some providers charge extra fees for going over your minute plan or even for essential services. Some agents are convinced that hotlines don’t work, without ever even trying one. But the truth is, hotlines do work and not all providers are a pain to deal with. Kevin Miller, a New Albany, Indiana REALTOR® gave ConnecTel Real Estate Hotlines a try and now gets half of his business from his 800 number.

Customer Close-Up: Neil Case of Antioch, CA

Neil Case Case Study
Neil Case

This Month’s Customer Close Up features Neil Case.

Neil Case is a successful broker from Antioch, CA, a suburban town on the edge of the Bay Area that has been dramatically effected by both the booming Housing Market of a few years back and the sub-prime lending crisis that followed it. According to Neil, “Antioch is on the edge of suburbia for the Bay Area so our market always has the wildest swings. When the market was great, it was on fire because it was so good, but then when the market turned down, our market turned down to the extreme and now it is starting to swing back again.” Like in many places it has been a hard couple years.
