Using robots and real ballpoint pens, Addressable creates beautiful, handwritten notes that deeply connect with your prospects. With 3, 6, and 12-month automation options, you can stay top of mind with your prospects.
In fact, Chris Tosswill, CEO & Co-Founder of Addressable, points out, “Our average agent gets more calls in a month from Addressable then a year of traditional mailers - and our top agents get on average 5 times more leads in a month from Addressable then a year of traditional mailers!"

As a realtor, you know keeping a consistent flow of leads coming into your sales systems for you and your team is critical. But spending dozens of hours every month putting together lists of leads isn’t the best use of your time.
Realtors® can create popular marketing lists by using many variables including:
- Geographic Information
- Just listed/just sold

- Absentee owners
- Mortgage status
- Return on investment (estimated)
- Square footage
Here’s a look at one of the most popular Quick Lists used by real estate agents and Realtors® — Geographic Farm. Using the predefined criteria, we simply add a location by drawing a perimeter around the market we’re targeting using PropertyRadar’s polygon drawing tool:
By using criteria that are typical of high-value prospects for real estate agents, you can ensure that you consistently connect with them through direct mail using Addressable.
Use Case #3: Windows and Installation
For high ticket local services like window replacement and installation, PropertyRadar can reshape the way that you handle prospecting within your company.
For window companies, what makes a homeowner ready to buy new windows?
Investing in new windows is common for new homeowners just after buying a home or just before selling a home. Often new homeowners will make numerous updates post-purchase, with windows being a common upgrade.
Using PropertyRadar, you can build mailing lists of prospects that have recently purchased a home, and then use Addressable to reach out to them about your window installation services.
The square footage of the home may be another variable that you use to identify high-value prospects. The idea here is that larger homes often have more (and larger) windows. Plus, owner of larger homes typically have more money to invest in their home, which makes them higher value prospects.
In the case of finding people who just listed their home, you can use a Quick List. You’ll navigate to Quick List > HomeServices > Pre-movers as shown below:
Another criteria trigger that a window installer could use is the amount of equity that a homeowner has in their home. If they have more than 50% equity, they may be more likely to make larger investments. The age of the property could be another trigger. The possibilities are numerous.
Whether you’re a window installer, roofer, solar panel installer, garage door installer, or another type of home services professional, all your customers are already in PropertyRadar waiting to be discovered.
