Ask the Experts - live Q&A discussion on Zoho CRM for Real Estate businesses

Hey everyone, 
It's been a while since we had an Ask the Experts session (ATE). So, we're excited to kick start this year's ATE with an industry-specific open house. A CRM solution is vital to any real estate business. The real estate industry is also one sector that widely uses Zoho CRM, all the way from managing and maintaining their business processes to streamlining sales, and automating most activities. 

21st May | 10:30 AM EDT - 2:30 PM EDT| 3:30 PM BST - 7:30 PM BST|

As a real estate agent, you leverage Zoho CRM to 
  • Manage thousands of properties, capture leads along with their requirements, and update them periodically
  • List properties, automatically match these properties with potential prospects, and generate relevant property recommendations when requirements are not satisfied
  • Monitor deals' status in the sales funnel, automatically raise commission invoices once the deals are closed, and track payments directly from CRM 
With these myriad of tasks comes so many challenges from effective property management, to automating the entire process. 

In this Ask the Expert session, Zoho CRM's Real Estate veterans and our active community enthusiasts, Chris, Pete, Mike, and Sara are coming together to answer your questions and engage in discussions about leveraging Zoho CRM for real estate businesses.

Note - This session not only welcomes questions across Zoho CRM for real estate, it is also a space for you all to engage and discuss anything CRM for Real Estate. If you don't have any questions to ask, feel free to simply join the discussion by commenting below with your experience in the RE sector or, suggest solutions/tips to comments left by your fellow users.
