Real Estate Broker Stays One-step Ahead with Privus Mobile

Michael’s business phone is flooded with calls. As a real estate broker for Real eVentures, this is to be expected. You see, in his line of work, it’s expected that his HTC Touch HD smartphone on the T-Mobile network hardly rests. It’s expected that 30 calls per day, most of which are from unknown numbers, is considered the norm. If Michael’s situation sounds familiar, it’s because most professionals in this mobile society rely on their cell phone as a direct point of contact for business operations, resulting in millions disrupting their busy schedules to answer unwanted calls. What most people do not expect is a solution.

Michael searched the Web for smartphone applications geared toward his Windows Mobile operating system. While on Handango, he searched the mobile marketplace for a solution and ran across Privus Mobile. Michael proceeded to the Privus Mobile site, where he read up on the company and its mobile Caller ID service. There he found an answer to his dilemma – an application that actually allowed him to see the caller’s information in real-time, despite not having the number in his contact list. With Privus Mobile’s free 10-day trial, he decided to test the service. After some early difficulties with the trial, Michael contacted Privus Mobile and the support staff was able to quickly remedy the situation.

“Privus Mobile was very responsive to my only problem with installing the service on my phone,” he said. “In my case, there was a difficulty with registering my Privus account, and Privus helped me solve the problem right away. Installing Privus on the phone, rather than in the storage card, improved the Privus response. Privus Mobile gives a very high level of attention to customer satisfaction.”

Now Michael is able to better manage his calls, especially the ones from numbers he didn’t previously recognize. Michael said Privus Mobile allows him to see the caller’s information on more than 85 percent of his calls. It’s also enhancing his business communications.

“Several times, I would be engaged on a call when another call came in, and Privus Mobile identified the call waiting as a caller whom I did not wish to answer at that moment. It allows for smoother conversations,” Michael said. “Also, in my business, there are plenty of opportunities for ‘junk calls’ from advertisers and promoters that are annoying and can interfere with my business communications. Privus Mobile allows me to screen out those calls.”

Like Brian in Iowa, Michael realizes the advantages of better management of calls in the realty industry. He’s passing along his positive experience not only to those working in real estate, but to anyone looking for the answer to unknown calls.

“Privus Mobile’s Caller ID is an extremely useful tool for private and business use,” he said. “Just like the advent of landline Caller ID, Privus accomplishes the same for smartphones and saves the subscriber many instances of answering unwanted, annoying or trivial calls on their cell phone. Subscribers now have the opportunity to prioritize the increasing volume of cell phone communications while maintaining a degree of privacy.

“Call screening is essential to anyone relying on their cell phone as an important medium of communication. I highly recommend Privus Mobile’s Caller ID service to everyone using a smartphone.”
