If you’re an ambitious estate agent looking for the tools that will help you get ahead of the competition, and improve customer experience, you’ve probably come across LeadPro and Boomerang from Homeflow.
So what’s the difference and most importantly, which should you use?
LeadPro responds to enquiries with a fully branded email response, including branch information and logo, which directs the enquirer to complete a qualifying questionnaire. Within the questionnaire LeadPro can identify vendor, landlord and referral leads as well as information about the property search. The enquirer is redirected to to the agent’s website once they’ve completed the questionnaire. All information gathered by LeadPro is sent through to the agent. More info can be found on our how it works page.
Boomerang from Homeflow responds to enquiries with a branded email. Their emails often include staff profiles, photos, and branch logo. Homeflow’s emails can suggest similar properties that the agent has advertised. The goal of these emails is to bring the enquirer back to the agent’s website and toward similar properties they could be interested in.
When asked if they could provide a general average open rate or click through rate on their emails for all their clients, Boomerang said they could not. On average LeadPro identifies each agent 3 vendor leads and 8 landlord leads per month, with 55% of people completing the questionnaire.

Overall they're very different services
It's clear that although LeadPro and Boomerang both offer an automatic response to enquiries, the depth of service is very different.
If you're a Homeflow client, and you can negotiate a free Boomerang account you should be using it. Instant replies are becoming the norm and they are what buyers and tenants expect. But... even if you can get Boomerang for free you should strongly consider upgrading your customer experience and using LeadPro. Why...?
LeadPro doesn't just auto reply, it engages customers.
LeadPro can email and text customers and it asks follow up questions, this is one of the key difference, it lets buyers and tenants build a relationship with your brand by giving you more information.
LeadPro also helps you pick up new business
LeadPro provides a fully branded email response directing people to a questionnaire, which identifies vendors, landlords, and referral leads. On average LeadPro identifies each agent 3 vendor leads and 8 landlord leads per month, with 55% of people completing the questionnaire.
