Tools real estate agents should be using

Real estate agents have a lot of responsibilities to juggle. You may start your day by catching up on emails and then get pulled in a dozen directions as the day goes on.

By lunchtime, you have answered emails, made calls, met with a client, showed a property and scheduled an open house.

Being busy is good. Being busy is how you make money. But, how can you keep up with everything and still provide the same level of exceptional service your clients have come to expect from you?

Here are some of our favorite tools to help you maximize your results while minimizing your effort:


Canva is an amazing tool that lets you create professional-looking promotional materials with little time and effort. Using their templates, you can create flyers, brochures, posters, pamphlets, business cards, marketing materials, newsletters…and so much more.

A free Canva account offers access to thousands of templates and images, letting you create professional-quality promotional materials to showcase your listings and your business. 

Breakthrough Broker

Before you can even get the showing, you have to get buyers excited about the listing. HomeJab offers exceptional HD photography, 360 home tours, virtual staging, aerial tours using drones and much more.

How about a home tour in 3D? HomeJab can provide home buyers with an exceptional sensory experience before they even step foot on the property.

You will be prompted to create Smart Folders that are tied to different clients or properties, and the tool will intuitively organize your incoming emails into the appropriate folders. It will show you all the related attachments, contacts, and dates whenever you’re viewing an email.

This helps you get to the information you need quickly, without having to scroll through pages and pages of spam or perform endless searches in your email to find that one document.

What’s more, Folio integrates with many common business products, including Microsoft Office365, Gmail and Google Calendar, Dropbox, and more. You can even set up transaction timelines through our integration with Google Calendar, keeping you informed and on-track and automate reminders for everyone involved in the deal.

One person can only do so much but by leveraging tools such as Canva, Breakthrough Broker, HomeJab and Folio, you can increase your productivity, simplify your workflows, improve your marketing and keep it all together.
