Today we are diving deep into apps with Kristy Hairston, Real Estate Agent and Trainer. Kristy is an expert on time saving and cost-effective apps that help agents. We are so excited to share our discussion with you today!

Folio is a great app to manage transactions and reminders, especially for your buyers.

G-Board is a keyboard app for iPhone users that lets you swipe instead of type (a feature that android users already have) and gives you options for sending someone google maps and send a gift or pay someone right from the text composition platform.

Boomerang lets you manage your e-mail communication in several ways. You can schedule e-mails to go out at a certain time. Kristy uses this when she is writing emails late at night, but she doesn’t want them to go out until the morning. If you send a message to someone and they don’t open it within a certain amount of time, Boomerang will move that message back up to the top of their inbox until they open it and it will notify you all along the way. This was a game changer when we were in a short sale market, but even now it’s super helpful.

For lead generation two great apps are Five Street is a great app to manage transactions and reminders, especially for your buyers. 5 Street and Open Home Pro.

Canva lets you create flyers, post cards, presentations and signatures. There are great templates and you can use either the desktop or app version.

Hootsuite and Buffer are just amazing for scheduling social media posts. You should still log in daily and engage, but batching the posts is a game changer!

Did you know that this app will you can take a picture of a house key and make it for you?

Another great app for buyers is Centriq. It sends push notifications and reminders for the home buying process so your clients can stay organized and you don’t need to hire an assistant to do it!

If you would like to create some beautiful photos of a staged home, but your seller cannot afford to actually stage their space you should use Box Brownie.
