Product updates are the lifeblood of progress, and 2023 saw us push the boundaries of innovation. REW CRM evolved to meet the ever-changing needs of real estate professionals, and we’re proud of our extremely talented team that made these new features and updates possible.
One of our notable product updates this year is REW Dialer, which introduced a new era of efficiency in lead management by making contacting and following up with leads a seamless experience. Next was REW Deals, which streamlines deal management through its robust query engine, smart listings, and custom view management.
Another breakthrough for 2023 was the introduction of Motivations, Interests, and Tags, which organizes leads at another level, giving agents deeper insights about their clients. Finally, Source View came in last but proved to be a powerful year-ender in our product updates. This new feature allows for more efficient budget attribution and ROI tracking per marketing channel. These product innovations showcased our commitment to empowering you to navigate the real estate industry with confidence.
