Did you know that Referral Maker CRM has made it even easier to track your numbers?

Life changes quickly. When you created your business plan and goals earlier in the year, your estimates may have been based on past or anticipated performance. A few months into the year, you may have found that things have changed. While a business plan is essential to help you succeed in business, keeping it flexible will help you to adjust and adapt to any changes that arise.

A new update in Referral Maker® real estate CRM helps you to make these changes quickly and easily so that you can get on with doing what you do best—serving your clients!

Features of the update:
• Easily reset your business plan to reflect changes, such as your tax rate, commission, business expenses and much more.
• Has the average sales price homes you’ve sold increased or decreased? Now you can easily input the new average sales price.
• See the difference from the changes. Once you’ve completed your changes, Referral Maker will show you what changed.
• Referral Maker still automatically recalculates your numbers, so that you’ll always know where you stand.
