Messaging via the ShowingTime App
Communication is handled via the message center on mobile devices. You can reach out to an agent directly by searching for them, or in some markets, you can tie the conversation to a specific listing. All messages that you are apart of can easily be found here. To start a conversation or to reply to a sent message you will need to follow the steps below.
From the home screen under the Showings section tap on On My Listings or I Have Requested.
Tap on the appointment.
a. You can either tap on the buyer or listing contact.
b. Or you may choose the Agent.
This messaging screen will keep track of all messages that you send to the contact. You can review these messages at any time.
You can now message the contact or agent.
