Meet the Real Estate Tech Founder: David Anderson from LionDesk
In our latest real estate tech entrepreneur interview, we’re speaking with David Anderson from LionDesk.
Without further ado…
What do you do?
Hi, I’m David Anderson, founder and CEO of LionDesk. At the core, LionDesk is a customer relationship management system (CRM) that makes it easy and affordable for sales professionals to connect, communicate with, and close more leads. Most popular features include video email and texting, automated lead follow up, task reminders and database segmentation. What people may not know is that LionDesk is an open API platform meaning that it integrates with 100’s of the best business building and management tools so professionals can run their entire business from one system.
What problem does your product/service solve?
LionDesk is the solution for any sales professional who is frustrated with leads falling through the cracks, wants to stay top-of-mind with their database, and wants a system that reminds them what to do each day to stay focused on the highest revenue producing activities. LionDesk gives them a system that automatically follows-up with incoming leads, consistently sends relevant messages to customers through email and text drip campaigns, reminds them of important tasks to take care of each day and much much more.
What are you most excited about right now?
We’ve entered into partnerships with the largest MLSs in the country who are now offering LionDesk as a member benefit. This means that agents all over the country will be able to take advantage of a special MLS plan before determining if they’re ready to take their business to the next level with our Pro Plus plan.
What’s next for you?
We are constantly adding new functionality into the platform to help sales professionals maintain a consistent pipeline of leads, speed up the conversion timeline, and keep their business organized. We are about to launch version 2 of LionDesk in Q1 2019 that will be faster, more feature rich and a new user interface. This is a very exciting time for LionDesk users.
What’s a cause you’re passionate about and why?
We recently partnered with Sherry Chris, president and CEO of Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate to support a charity we are both passionate about. It’s called New Story, a certified non-profit organizations that builds homes and sustainable communities for the people of Ahuachapan, El Salvador. We are honored and committed to donate enough money to build at least two houses.
