The best real estate apps for real estate agents


The work of a real estate agent is fraught with difficulties. A successful agent would need to learn how to find real estate investors, advertise themselves, flip houses, talk to clients, and close deals. Thankfully, in the digital age, there are many apps available that can make your job easier. With the right tools, you can speed up the process, close deals faster, and turn into a top producing agent sooner.

The ideal real estate app would reduce your workload, increase your productivity, and empower you to make the right decisions. The apps listed in this article isn’t just for real estate agents. Anyone involved in the real estate business would find these apps beneficial. So, here are the best real estate apps that can help you conduct business efficiently and successfully.


1. Zillow (Lead Generation Tool)

Zillow offers an amazing lead generation platform with thousands of potential leads. If you use it for free, you can upload new listings and claim other listings. This would put your profile along with other buyer agents’ profiles against that particular listing.

You can also pay a fee to become a premier agent on the site. This will ensure that your profile exclusively appears alongside your listings. So, if a client is interested, they’ll only contact you for the house and you’ll earn the full commission.

2. Hubspot (Customer Relationship Management App)

Since there are many CRM apps in the market, it can be hard to choose the best one for you. Hubspot makes the management of customer relations simpler. It achieves this by visualizing all aspects of sales management in its clutter-free dashboard.

Hubspot allows for seamless integrations with other apps like MailChimp, Gmail, and Outlook. So, you can get in touch with your customers directly through the app. You can also automatically track customer interactions on email or social media. If you use Hubspot’s marketing tools, you can manage your sales and marketing in one place.

3. Freshchat (Website Live Chat App)

If your website has a basic chatbot, you could be losing precious business. Freshchat is a live chat software that differentiates itself by merging both artificial intelligence (AI) and human customer support. So, if someone asks a question on your website, Freshchat records their basic information before escalating it to you. You can also automatically route calls and prioritize potential leads.


4. BombBomb (Video Email Software)

Adding your personal touch always gives you an edge in the market. BombBomb is a software that helps you make personalized videos and send it to your clients. The difference is that, instead of being an email attachment, your videos will be automatically inserted into the email.

This ensures that your clients will actually receive and view your personal messages. You can also track your emails to analyze engagement and potential leads. BombBomb can easily integrate with over 60+ tools for a seamless and simpler workflow.  

5. DocuSign (e-Signature and Transaction Management App)

DocuSign is one of the most popular e-signature software in the world. Instead of traveling for a signature, real estate agents can use this app to digitally sign documents and close deals remotely.

The app offers complete encryption and privacy for your documents. DocuSign also helps you manage all of your documents through a simple workflow. The best part is that you can integrate DocuSign into your NAR documents without any hassle.

6. Cloud CMA (Comparative Market Analysis Designing Tool)

Market analysis is essential to successfully run your real estate business. You need to make a good first impression when you present your listings to clients. Streamline your market research formatting by using Cloud CMA.

The reports produced by the app look clean and professional. Best of all, you can personalize it with your image and logo before sending your reports to clients.

7. CityBlast (Social Media Tool)

Social media acts as a powerful megaphone for your business. But it can only work if the content you post is very good. However, many agents don’t have to the time to constantly keep updating their social media pages. This is where CityBlast comes in. It automatically posts targeted and relevant real estate content to your social media pages based on your content schedule.


8. Structurely (AI Chatbot for Lead Development)

Do you receive a lot of leads online but don’t have the time to filter through all of them? Structurely uses an AI chatbot named Aisa Holmes to do the lead qualification for you. The app works on leads from your website and Facebook page.

With Structurely, the response time is quick and the questioning process is effective. You have the power to take over the conversation at any moment or let the chatbot do the work. The chatbot takes conversations forward and even offers to book appointments with the agent whenever necessary.

9. Spacio (Open House Management Software)

Organizing open houses is a tedious task for real estate agents. Vetting visitors, dealing with blotched sign-in sheets, following up with potential buyers, and the manual data entry is both time-consuming and exhausting. Spacio is a powerful app that aims to supercharge the process of hosting open houses.

It lets you digitally capture and store visitors contact details. The software seamlessly integrates with many CRMs, so you can automatically invite and follow up with potential buyers. Based on the data collected, it breaks down insights, analytics, and reports that are beautiful to see and easy to understand.


10. Videolicious (Real Estate Video Editing App)

Since they’re more engaging, videos capture more attention than text or images. That’s why every real estate agent needs to upload videos of their listings to boost their marketing efforts. However, a badly edited video can have a negative impact on your sales efforts.

Videolicious makes the video editing process simple and efficient. You can easily add your company’s logo and watermark to the walkthroughs. You can also piece together various snippets of video into one beautiful presentation. The end result looks professional and spectacular with little effort.
