Case Study: CRM Optimization for Real Estate


Page Contents

Real Estate

Succeeding in real estate means using both innovation and careful prospect management. It’s not just about keeping up with new technologies and trends but also understanding how to handle and nurture potential leads. In this fast-changing environment, staying ahead involves not just following the industry but actively shaping and innovating. By finding the right balance between trying new things and managing prospects well, real estate professionals can create opportunities, strengthen client relationships, and stay competitive in this dynamic sector.

Zenith Innovations, a top-notch tech solutions provider, recently teamed up with a prominent real estate client. Together, they embarked on a journey to enhance customer relationship management (CRM) processes, outlined in a case study.

In this collaboration, Zenith Innovations aimed not just to streamline CRM but to completely transform how prospects are managed and converted in the highly competitive real estate industry.


The objective was clear to develop a robust blueprint in ZOHO to optimize the handling of prospects more effectively and boost revenue. The focus was on making the process smoother, ultimately boosting the efficiency of closing deals and increasing the business revenue. The goal was to streamline prospect management and enhance the overall success in turning leads into closed deals.

Client’s Complex Challenge:

The client presented Zenith Innovations with a multifaceted challenge: create a comprehensive solution in ZOHO for managing prospects in two distinct scenarios.

First Scenario:

The first scenario catered to prospects actively interested in discussing a project.

Second Scenario:

The second scenario addressed those expressing interest in future discussions, potentially several months down the line.

The main objective was clear and straightforward: increase deal closures. This was to be achieved by adopting a customized approach in ZOHO to communication and engagement. The goal was to create a smooth transition from initial interest to successful conversion. The strategy focused on tailoring interactions to each prospect’s needs, ensuring a more personalized and effective pathway to closing deals.

Innovative Solution by Zenith Innovations – Blueprint:

Scenario 1: Prospect Interested in the current Project

Landing Page:

  • The journey begins as the lead lands on a dedicated page tailored to the specific project of interest.

ZOHO CRM Integration:

  • Seamlessly, the prospect is integrated into the ZOHO CRM from the precise source where they initially engaged.

Automated Welcome Email:

  • Swiftly following integration, an automated welcome email is dispatched, creating an instant connection with the prospect.

ZOHO Bookings Integration:

  • The engagement progresses with the provision of a second automated email containing a link to ZOHO Bookings, empowering the prospect to schedule an appointment effortlessly.

Appointment Confirmation via SMS:

  • Upon confirmation of the appointment through the shared link, an automated SMS is dispatched, acknowledging the booking and further strengthening the customer-provider relationship.

Engagement Emails:

  • The engagement journey doesn’t stop at appointment confirmation. Between the scheduling and the actual meeting, a series of automated, value-added emails are strategically sent. These encompass diverse content such as project videos, 5-star testimonials, and news & updates, chosen randomly to keep the prospect engaged and informed.

Scenario 2: Prospect Interested in the Future (e.g., After 5 Months)

Landing Page:

  • For prospects projecting interest in the future, the customer journey initiates on a dedicated page designed to accommodate future project discussions.

ZOHO CRM Integration:

  • The prospect seamlessly enters the ZOHO CRM from the source, laying the foundation for future interactions.

Automated Follow-up Email (120 Days Before “Follow-up Date”):

  • As the “Follow-up Date” approaches, a calculated 120 days prior, an automated follow-up email is dispatched. This communication aims not only to start conversation with the prospect but also includes a link to ZOHO Bookings, prompting the scheduling of an appointment as the prospective date draws near.

Follow-Up Emails (100 Days and 90 Days Before “Follow-up Date”):

  • In the absence of a response, the system initiates follow-up emails at the 100-day and 90-day marks. Each email restates the opportunity to schedule an appointment, emphasizing convenience through the inclusion of a ZOHO Bookings link.

Appointment Confirmation Workflow:

  • If the prospect confirms the appointment, they’ll receive a series of emails acknowledging their response and providing details for preparation. If there’s no response, the system sends an 80-day reminder SMS, followed by a planned escalation.

Voicemail Outreach (After 3 Unanswered Emails & 1 Reminder SMS):

  • If there’s continued silence from the prospect, the system uses a pre-recorded voicemail from Google Drive. This personalized message shows our ongoing attempts to connect and encourages the prospect to reach out if their interest remains.

Zenith Innovations showcased their expertise in tackling the client’s diverse challenges. They seamlessly integrated ZOHO CRM, strategically implemented email automation, leveraged ZOHO Bookings, and integrated third-party SMS tools. The resulting comprehensive plan not only simplified prospect management intricacies but also significantly strengthened the client’s ability to close deals efficiently.

In the competitive real estate market, this innovative CRM strategy proved transformative. Beyond streamlining daily operations, it laid a robust foundation for future success. By enhancing prospect engagement through personalized communication and facilitating a smooth conversion process, Zenith Innovations paved the way for a substantial revenue increase. This marks a paradigm shift in the client’s overall business strategy and success.
