tldr: I started building an overly complex SMS autoresponder service and decided I should really just focus on simplicity and taking care of specific needs, and I'm here to see if I can solve any pain for those in Real Estate.

I'm an independent software developer who has been slowly working on an automated SMS application for a while. I got caught up trying to build a system that did everything for everyone and recently decided I needed to take a step back and seriously simplify the requirements. Without getting too deep into the details, specifically for RE Agents my goal is to provide a service that handles mundane requests for information and alerts you when someone is serious about a property.

I am working on a simple, no-frills application that would allow you to set up SMS Autoresponders to provide information to potential clients and also collect client information. For example, you would set up an account, pick a local phone number, and then set up various "codes" that clients could text (or scan (QR Codes)) to get more information. The way I see it working from a consumer perspective is this: they arrive at a property they are interested in, and see "text 12345 to 555-555-5555 for more info". As soon as they text it, they get an automatic response with whatever information you provided. Their number would be saved where you could later access it and import it to your contacts or whatever. They could also be asked "would you like to receive a call from an agent regarding this property?" and if they reply "yes", you could immediately be texted with a notification that someone wants a call, that way you can reach out to them immediately.

I noticed that a lot of the existing options out there are fairly complicated and provide lots of features that most folks would not use. I am looking at building a very simple, easy to use, no-frills application with a cost that reflects that. This survey is intended to gauge interest and understand what features you would absolutely need.

If you have 5-10 minutes to fill out a little survey, please check out this Google Survey: http://goo.gl/forms/xvDZZBvo1p

If you prefer to just ask questions or give your opinion here, that would be awesome as well.
