It’s obvious that your greeting is often the first interaction you’ll have with a new lead. A strong realtor voicemail greeting gives you the chance to make an impression and provide a glimpse of what it would be like to work with you.

As a real estate agent, you put a lot of time, energy, and money into marketing and creating a great customer experience. You’ve invested in social media, a user-friendly website, professional property fliers, client appreciation events, and more. 

But you may have overlooked a crucial touchpoint that will either reinforce or detract from the message you’ve worked so hard to create — your voicemail message.

Voicemail greeting for real estate agents

After this post, you’ll know how to create a good real estate voicemail greeting — and the best voicemail greeting scripts you can use.

What Is A Good Voicemail Greeting?

A good voicemail greeting is short, clear, and professional, lets people know that you’ll get back to them, provides the caller with the information they need, and gives them a clear next step. 

What To Include in Your Real Estate Voicemail Greeting?

That’s the simple structure of a general voicemail greeting, not just real estate specifically. Overall, your greeting should be clear and professional, but the wording and structures can vary depending on the situation. Check out a few examples below.

Real Estate Voicemail Greeting Examples

1. The basic one #1:

“Hello, you‘ve reached [name] at [company]. I’m unable to come to the phone right now. Leave your name and number, and I‘ll return your call as soon as I’m free. Thank you.”

2. The basic one #2:

“Hi, this is [your name]. I’m either on a call or away from my desk. Please leave your name, number, and a brief message, and I’ll get back to you. Thank you.”

3. Everyone’s favorite – the funny one:

“Hey, it’s Taylor Swift. Okay, it’s really [your last name]. [Your first name] [your last name]. I’ll get back to you as soon as I’m done with The Era world tour — which will probably be tomorrow at the latest. Have a good day.”
