There are literally millions of apps out there. Some of them may not be very useful (doesn’t mean they’re not fun), but others can reinvigorate your business and change the way you market, manage and collaborate in real estate.
Real Estate Agents use apps to avoid traffic jams, pay for our parking, sign the documents or even to schedule an appointment for a message. And it saves us a lot of time and energy! Isn’t it what all technology should be about after all – making our lives easier and saving us some time for the important stuff?We’ve put together a list of our favorite apps we use to work, communicate and relax. These apps are really handy for the REALTORS.
Because nobody has time to comb through all the apps out there, we’ve asked some of real estate’s top agents and coaches for recommendations. Here is a list we pulled together of the best of those apps!
