We Understand The Types Of Calls That Are Expected By Real Estate Agents, Brokers & Property Managers

Our Answering Services Are Useful When:

  • Your Office Is Unattended
    Stop missing important calls when you’re out showing a property or in a meeting with a potential buyer, seller or tenant.

  • Your Main Phone Line Is Engaged
    Never miss another call when your office staff is on the phone. Send your overflow calls to us!

  • You Want To Work Undisturbed
    Real Estate Agents can forward their phone lines to us at any time of day or night or during any holiday or weekend – we will answer every call and handle each of them as specified.

  • You Are Understaffed
    If an employee calls in sick or needs to take PTO, your phones can still be answered by a live human who represents your real estate firm or property management company in a professional manner.

  • You Need After Hours Calls Answered Professionally
    Sometimes having on-call employees answer your business line isn’t the best way to ensure calls are answered professionally – we can help.

  • After having dealt with for prior answering service companies, it was a pleasure working with this team through our transition. AnswerFirst accommodated our needs precisely and worked with us to make sure that we got what we wanted. The onboarding process was also very organized and methodical. So far our daily experiences with the company are very good, and we have found the operators to be very professional and friendly sounding. So far very happy customer!

    I have researched and found this organization to be respectable. I have talked to a long-time employee who couldn't speak more highly of AnswerFirst. I would like very much to be associated with AnswerFirst and have begun the application process, which I find is very straightforward and rigorous. I look forward, if hired, to use my people skills to listen to and problem solve for their callers.

    Answer First is not only a cost effective option, but, their service is wonderful! We needed to make a change on account and they acted in a timely manner, helping us save additional money! I was amazed that they placed us on waiting list for number and made the change without us following up. Great change of pace from the usual companies out there. I would definitely recommend. A special mention of our rep, Crystal Peterson. She is great!

  • AnswerFirst provides 24/7 answering service with friendly, helpful assistance to my clients. I receive a phone message via my cell & email w/in 1 min of a client calling & all the information is correct (name/phone/subject matter). I wish I had been using AnswerFirst since I started my business 2 years ago. I actually save money and get accurate & efficient information for a fraction of the cost of having a full-time receptionist. The service is awesome!
