Hi
Unfortunately you can not use Google Analytics to store PII (Personally identifiable information) and email and phone numbers are PIIs.

I am a real estate agent. if a customer is viewing my listings online there
is no way to reach out to them about a property?

Thanks for your help!

Hi
Lets 1st understand difference between browser and customer. Some one viewing your listing is a browser and not customer. Some one who submits form on your website expressing interest in a listing is a potential customer and you can store that data in a database on your web server or in your email id.
But you cant store that info in Google Analytics.
Besides Its far simpler to store this data in a DB than in GA Smiley Happy
Hope this helps

Ahhh ok. So If a browser submits a form expressing interest in a property,
they then become a potential customer and at that point I can store their
Info and contact them directly?
