Agents Can Work Faster and Smarter, and Stay Safer, with a Few Great Apps


Real estate agents have a lot going on so anything that can make their job a little easier is always welcome. Here are some great apps for agents. Check these out and see if they help you work faster and smarter, and stay a little safer.

Bmonitored: This app provides a way to have safe meetings with strangers. Enter a meeting start time and safety alert times. Bmonitored will then ask you for confirmation that you are safe at the interval you have selected. Once you respond with your one-digit personal PIN, the system clock resets until your next safety alert interval. If you do not respond, your emergency contacts and the authorities are notified with your last GPS coordinates.

Magic Plan: Magic Plan will make you feel like a real magician when you create accurate floor plans quickly and easily on your iPad or your iPhone. Use the camera of your device and while turning around, mark the corners of your space. When you are finished, Magic Plan aggregates a floorplan!

With just a little practice you’ll be capturing a room using Magic Plan within a minute. That’s saving you a lot of time – plus the cost of employing someone else to measure it!

Homesnap: This app lets you snap a photo of any home to reveal home value estimates, interior photos, bedrooms, bathrooms, taxes, lot boundaries, public school information and more. In addition, consumers use Homesnap to search for homes every month, and each time they have a question about your listing, real estate agents using Homesnap Pro get the lead instantly for free.

Homesnap also comes with a safety timer or sends distress alerts if an agent is in danger.

Open Home Pro: Open house visitors sign in with a name, email address and other relevant information online rather than on a sheet of paper that you may or may not be able to read. After each open house, visitors receive a professional follow up email with the agent’s contact information. Agents receive a list of leads who don’t have an agent or a home to sell so they can act quickly to capture potential home buyers.

Postagram: This app is just plain fun and good business. Use your photos from Instagram, Facebook and your camera roll to design postcards. Customize the colors to match your style and choose your designs. These are great ways to easily stay in touch with a personal message with your homebuyers. And wouldn’t it be fun to send a photo message after a closing with your homebuyers in front of their new home or at the closing? Postagram helps keep business personal.

These are just a few of the great apps agents can use for business (and for fun!). Check these out today for the boost your business needs now.
