5 Essential Apps and Software for Real Estate Agents


There’s no doubt that as a real estate agent, you’re incredibly busy.

On top of taking care of clients, networking to collect more leads, keeping up with social media, and doing lots (and LOTS) of paperwork, you’re probably thinking that there’s not enough hours in the day.

Fortunately, there’s a lot of technology out there to help you run your business smoothly and save you time. Here are five essentials that you should definitely start using to help make your work life a little easier.


This is a great option for including videos in your emails to connect with your contacts face to face. It will help you create personalized videos to insert directly into your emails, but it will also track who watches them, which is a pretty useful tool when it comes to marketing.

BombBomb allows you to schedule emails, it can send you reminders and saves you time with canned responses. It’s also worth noting that BombBomb puts the video directly into the email instead of including it as an attachment, giving it a higher probability of actually getting delivered to and seen by your contacts.


Buffer makes it easy for you to schedule posts, analyze performance, and manage all of your social media accounts from one place. You can also add multiple team members and set their access levels, which is great if you work on a team, or you have assistants.

Why do you need a social media management platform? It’s going to save you a lot of time in the long run if you have a presence across several social media sites. It’ll also help keep you from neglecting certain accounts. It works with Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, Instagram, Zapier, WordPress, and more.


DocuSign is the industry leader in electronic signature software, and for good reason. It will eliminate the hassle, lack of security, and cost of paper transactions.

Getting paperwork signed is extremely efficient. You can access, send, and sign documents from anywhere. You’ll spend less time writing offers or driving to get clients’ signatures. You can get a contract executed in a matter of minutes instead of days.

Once you dump the paperwork for digital, you’ll never go back!


Use FreshChat to add a chatbot to your website. With FreshChat, you’re giving consumers the ability to get instant responses to their online inquiries, which can mean capturing more leads. It’s the perfect way to pick up leads who hate making phone calls or don’t like waiting for email responses.

You can give consumers an instant response through a programmed bot, or if you’re available, you can respond personally with a live chat from your phone. It’s as easy as texting.


This one is one of the most popular project management apps out there. It’s extremely easy to use, and it’s free! It works great for individuals, or you can also collaborate with your team or anyone you may be working with.

Trello’s boards, lists, and cards enable you to organize and prioritize your projects. You can add comments, attachments, and due dates. It also integrates the apps you or your team already use directly into your workflow.
