  • Customer Service Experience – Appointment setters have previous customer service experience, preferably in a call center environment. However, any kind of real estate customer service is usually helpful for this position

Appointment Setter Education and Training

Appointment Setter Duties and Responsibilities

1) Place Outbound Calls

Appointment setters receive lists of potential clients from the sales team, and they are responsible for cold calling these prospects. They use these calls to determine the overall interest of prospective clients and eliminate clients who aren’t interested.

2) Keep Accurate Records

When appointment setters contact prospective clients and talk to them about products or services, they keep accurate records of each conversation. They also indicate in these records whether the person is interested or not.
