We are proud to announce the Flex Dynamic Ads is now out of beta and available for order to all our real estate clients. The integration with your Flex responsive real estate website is a game-changer.

The result is ads that perform better over the long run. We've simplified everything by eliminating the need to manage this in a new tool, Base CRM handles everything . What's more, 100% of your ad spend budget goes into building your brand. Check out the slideshow below:

10 Clever ways to save time in your real estate business

"Time is what we want most, but what we use worst" ~ William Penn When we get so used to doing things in a certain way we fail to step back and investigate how we can work more efficiently and save time (and money) in the process. We get into comfort zones with outdated tools and fear trying out something new. Time lost on repetitive admin tasks impacts your business bottom line. That's time you could have spent on productive tasks. Save enough time and it opens the door to appointing someone new in your business. At Entegral we have a mindset of always trying to work more efficient and we push this view down into our product development. We are always on the lookout for how we can make your real estate business more profitable. So how much time can you save in your real estate agency by automating everyday tasks? We've compiled 10 ways our platforms can help you create more time out of thin air. Maybe you can think of some more or have some ideas on how w

How estate agents can now automatically pre-qualify their buyer leads without lifting a finger

by Adriaan GrovĂ©, Entegral Founder We know there are plenty of benefits for home buyers to prequalify for a home loan.

Track any marketing campaign with Flex and Base

Background If you run any sort of online campaign (e.g. Facebook, Google Ads, or other paid advertising) for your real estate business, chances are you would want to track the return on investment. In most cases, this would translate to the actual number of leads generated for that campaign, and to be more accurate the new mandates or sales generated from those leads. Knowing where best to spend your money is part of our goals with Base, and why you can already automatically import leads from all the portals within a few minutes. This gives you great transparency to identify lead sources by a portal, but what about your own campaigns?   Most marketing tools like Google or Facebook Ads will provide native reports with insights into the number of leads and cost per lead.
