No... when you need real support, you need real support. There's no free lunch in life at the end of the day. Not to be trite, but you really do get what you pay for. Pay nothing, get nothing.

I feel like many of the ones that are out there are self-serve even when they say they offer technical support! 

I have a CRM that I love so, I would not be interested but, good luck with your endeavor!

I'm a little confused.  If you need to sell homes to pay the bills, why are you considering offering a "free" CRM with only self-serve free support?  Am I missing something?  Is there monetization in a different way?

I don't think I'd change as I don't want to take the time to switch gears and I'm happy with what I got, but is someone that didn't already have a CRM they were happy with - free and everything you mentioned should get a few takers.

Yes, it worked out well on Placester when I had it. System still stunk but it wasn't for this problem.

I've used Bitrix24, Hubspot and Insight.ly, all of which are free with self serve support and paid support options.  At the end of the day, the need for a CRM was not there for me.  So I would not be availing myself of another CRM.

Hi Nat.That is a great question. Julio here. I work for a CRM.

 

Without offending anyone, generally speaking, Real Estate Agents are not super techy. It is not that they don't understand technology, it is just that they rather focus on selling houses than trying to figure out tech. (Which makes sense)

Anyways, this already exists. Most CRMs out there already have a knowledge base. Lots and lots of demo videos about every feature. And an actual knowledge base. While it is a good idea for some, others prefer to speak to an actual person. 

Most CRMs out there are self serve. The successful ones also have a support team. Tech Savvy or not there is nothing more frustrating than having issues with your CRM and not being able to get a hold of anyone.
