If you’re like us, then you love the speed and ease of sending out a request or receiving a response via text message and email. You’ve also realized, however, that this modern form of communication lacks the personal touch of good old fashioned face-to-face conversations. Non-verbal tools like intonation, gestures, facial expressions and body language are lost in translation in today’s electronic messages.

That’s why the creation of emojis is so genius – because what better way to display your excitement, anger or sadness than by including a cute over-emotional face next to your written message?

In real estate, where we spent most of our days communicating with clients on complicated transactional matters, showing our true enthusiasm for helping them sell or buy a home can be a challenging task to accomplish.

The new CARmojis app, developed by the California Associate of REALTORS®, looks to change that by offering agents the ability to personalize their social content and client communication with real estate related stickers.

With creative icons that read “Who’s Your REALTOR®?”, Open House signs, superman and superwoman agents, and more, you’ll create a little excitement the next time you’re letting people know you love what you do.
