Best Mobile Apps for Real Estate Agents in 2018
As a real estate agent, you’re always on the go meeting new clients, viewing the property and signing contracts.
Time is of the essence and having the right information available when you need it can mean the difference between signing a contract and losing a valuable customer.
Most of the mobile apps below relate to customer relationship management or CRM, schedule planning, customizable reports but also marketing, time tracking, and others, same as desktop versions of CRM solutions.
The basic idea behind all of these apps is to save realtors time and offer a more straightforward way to manage their day to day tasks – time means money, even more so for realtors. Here is our list of the best mobile apps for real estate agents in 2018.
