Evernote for Real Estate


Top Apps for Real Estate – Office & Productivity


When Apple launched the original App Store with the slogan, “There’s an App for That” it seemed perfect because there were so many apps to chose from.  Well that was 2008, now there are literally over 2 million apps in the IOS App Store as well as in the Google Play Store.  And there are thousands to choose from that are tailored just for the real estate industry.  This can be pretty overwhelming, not know where to start, which ones to use, which are a waste of time, etc.  Well the RETI Team is here to help with our breakdown of the Best Apps for Real Estate!!!

CamScanner (FREE on both IOS and Android) – is a great app to use in the field because it turns your mobile device into a portable scanner. So if you are with a customer and they sign an agreement or you need to send them a form, just take a picture of each page and then use the app to combine them into one pdf or image file.

Contactually ($35/Basic User, App FREE on both IOS and Android) -Contactually is an excellent CRM solution.  While it is not specific just to the real estate industry the way some other offering are, it is powerful and flexible/customizable enough to be an excellent option for REALTORS.  One of its key strengths is integrations with several external sources, social media profiles, etc.  Check out this RETI webinar with Contactually

Dropbox (FREE on both IOS and Android) – Dropbox is the most popular cloud file storage program as it is very easy to use and does a good job of syncing your files from multiple devices.  While it does have some security concerns (so the RETI team does not suggest using it for important), it is very easy to use with clients for things like sharing photos or not sensitive files.

Evernote (FREE on both IOS and Android) is an amazing program that works on all devices and acts like a computer running on the Internet/Cloud.  It can be used for folder/file storage (called Notebooks and Notes), note taking, audio recording & transcription, etc.  Evernote, is so powerful it can be a bit confusing/overwhelming, so the good news is we have an entire section on RETI dedicated to Evernote and we’ve also done  a webinar on Evernote for Real Estate on it as well!

Genius Scan ($1.99 on both IOS and Android) -Genius Scan is a great app to use in the field because it turns your mobile device into a portable scanner.

TeamViewer (FREE on both IOS and Android) –

Sometimes when you try to do things on a mobile device, you run into challenges where certain websites won’t work or the apps are a shell of the full software. In other words if you were on a regular computer, you wouldn’t have any issues because everything typically works on a computer. Well what if you could log onto any of your computers from a mobile device and use it just like you were sitting at your desk. Well with the TeamViewer app you can as it allows you to use the app as a remote control of up to 10 of your computers. Now you can access and control your computers anytime from anywhere and truly be mobile.
