Leveraging automation for growth
While working alongside his mom, Christine Schauble of Schauble Realty, Nick focused on system improvements and his own personal production. As the brokerage production grew, Nick knew they needed to leverage technology for continued growth and efficiency. After seeing a Brivity demo in 2017, Nick finally found the answers he was looking for and went all in with the Brivity Platform.
As an early adopter of Brivity’s Auto Plans, Nick developed hundreds of automations over the years to reduce redundant tasks, increase communications, and improve client satisfaction.
“When you don’t rely on automation you bounce all over the place. You’re trying to call a seller here and handle a pending listing over there. Whether you’re a solo agent or part of a team, everyone is pulled in different directions with responsibilities,” says Nick.
Nick credits the systems and processes within the Brivity Platform with being able to manage upwards of 70 transactions at one time and still having time for personal production. The same goes for their brokerage’s remarkable growth, which ranged from 2X to 5X annually, without incurring additional hiring costs. With Schauble Realty’s high-producing and efficient agents leveraging Brivity, the team was able to focus on selling more homes.
With Schauble Realty seeing massive growth, they found themselves in need of additional administrative help. After interviewing numerous quality candidates, Nick realized the ideal candidates were a bit too expensive for their small, local brokerage. Armed with this motivation, he doubled down and added more automations to handle many of the tasks they had hoped to offload.
By leveraging Brivity’s Auto Plans, Nick was able to create an AI-like office assistant to check in with leads periodically via text or email based on rules he created. Once the prospect responded, a live person is notified to reach out.
