10 Top Apps for 2017, Recommended by Top Agents

HDC_Top_Apps_2017_2608_1200x600There are literally millions of apps out there. Some of them may not be very useful (doesn’t mean they’re not fun), but others can reinvigorate your business and change the way you market, manage, and collaborate in real estate. Because nobody has time to comb through all the apps out there, we’ve asked some of real estate’s top agents and coaches for recommendations. Here is a list we pulled together of the best of those apps!

  • iMovie – This all-in-one video app recommended by Marguerite Giguere makes it easy to create, edit, view, and share videos on your iPhone, iPad, or Apple computer.
  • PicPlayPost – If you’re tired of the standard click-click-click technique of scrolling through images, this is the app for you. Marguerite Giguere recommends this app for creating multi-media collages that incorporate pictures, video, and sounds into one incredible collage.
  • Haiku Deck – Make professional looking presentations on the web, your iPad, or your iPhone with this app, recommended by Chris Smith. Haiku Deck gives you access to thousands of templates and millions of free images, making it easy to create a presentation that complements your branding.
  • WordSwag – Text is more relatable, digestible, and memorable when you add it to an image. Debra Trappen introduced us to WordSwag as a quick, easy way to add text to your photos. Use this app to add descriptions to listing photos or share inspiring stats, quotes, etc.
  • Slack – When you work with a team, communication is key. Michael Maher suggests this group messaging app to keep everyone on the same page.
  • GroupMe – Another great option to connect with your team is GroupMe. Wendy Papasan suggests this app, which makes it easy to create group messages that work on any device.
  • Evernote – This note-taking app makes it easy to take, share, and access your ideas from anywhere. Recommended by Ashton Gustafson, this app is versatile, allowing you to make lists, take notes, and snap photos.
  • Waze – No one likes getting stuck in traffic. Debra Trappen suggests using Waze to navigate around traffic jams, accidents, and other road hazards so you can reach your destination fast, safe, and on time.
  • Don’t Break the Chain! – This app helps you track your daily commitment to your most important goal. Wendy Papasan suggests using this app “for habits that [you] want to create.”
  • Charlie App – Building rapport is simpler when you use the info Charlie App finds. Introduced to us by Chris Smith, this app researches your contacts and sends you information about their interests, company, common connections, news related to them, and more.
  • TalkNow – Currently being beta-tested in Orlando, FL, Dallas-Ft. Worth, TX, and Nashville, TN, this app instantly connects area agents with exclusive buyer leads who are looking at homes within 5 miles of the agent’s current location.

  1. I like the helpful info you provide to your articles.
    I’ll bookmark your weblog and take a look at once more right
    here frequently. I am reasonably sure I will learn a lot of
    new stuff right here! Good luck for the following!

  2. Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs
    use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with
    HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Most blogs offer both! The WYSIWYG editor is typically the default, but you can switch over to HTML view to make more controlled changes.
