Tandem turns your Gmail Labels (Folders) into Shared Labels along with individual email addresses for the label. It allows your entire team to work together on a property or on an area. This makes sure that even if your primary agent is busy, your team can respond fast and win together.

Successful real estate teams are using tandem in following ways:

  • Create Labels by Geography: Manage all the property listings and communicate with clients in the way you have organized teams by regions, for example you can have labels by 50 states in US.
