What Realtor® isn’t constantly on the go? Few things have become more beneficial to Realtors® than a smart phone to help you work and prospect while you are out and about.

The right app can increase your productivity and business.

Luckily for savvy agents like you, there are many great apps designed with Realtors® in mind — emphasis on many. Rather than having you wade through app stores, we’ve created a two-part roundup with the 10 must-have apps every Realtor® should have. In this first installment, we’ll cover apps to aid in your marketing and business efforts. In part two, we’ll share apps that can help you manage your showings.

 

 

Cloze

Cloze is beloved by professionals across industries, but Realtors® especially love this app. We’ve written before about why all agents should have a customer-relationship management (CRM) tool. If you have yet to take the plunge, or want an easy-to-use option when you’re out and about, Cloze is perfect for you. Cloze lets you create profiles of your customers and document the details that are important to you, such as your meeting history or what their needs are as a prospective buyer/seller. Plus, you can add photographs and reminders to keep your relationship with clients fresh and valuable. There’s no reason nurturing your leads needs to be a daunting process!

Free, with premium options. Available for Android and iOS

Canva

Need to create a quick Instagram or Facebook post, but won’t be at your computer for a while? Use Canva! Canva is an easy-to-use design tool that lets you build beautiful graphics in just a few clicks. Share an inspirational quote or add some decorative elements to a listing photograph. Canva is free and includes hundreds of templates created by professional designers. You can publish and share straight to your social media profiles.

Free. Available for Android and iOS.

Animoto

If you really want to knock the socks off of your followers and clients, you can take your social media posts up a notch and create videos! We’ve written about the effectiveness of video marketing before. You might remember these staggering stats:

• 85% of buyers and sellers want to work with an agent who uses video.
• Homes listed with video get 4X the inquiries of homes listed without video.
• Including video in emails doubles the click-through rate and reduces opt-outs by 75%.

If that doesn’t convince you, Animoto’s interface will. Upload some clips or images you want to use and pop them into a simple and attractive template. Add text or music and bam! You’re done! This is a great resource for quickly making compelling listing presentations.

Free. Available for Android and iOS.

Expensify

Tracking expenses can be tedious, but it’s important for Realtors® to keep their finances in tip-top shape. Expensify makes this process a breeze. Track your purchases and document your receipts in the app. You might still dread tax season (don’t we all?) but at least you’ll be organized. Plus, this app provides a nice user experience and a good bird’s eye view of your business’s financial health.

Free. Available for Android and iOS.
