Best Apps for REALTORS- Car: Automatic Pro

Automatic Pro

Unlimited car monitoring, zero fees. The only connected car adapter with unlimited 3G included. $129.95

This is both a device and companion app. Any busy sales agent should log their mileage, but keeping detailed logs is tough.  Not with Automatic Pro, this little device plugs into your car’s On Board Diagnostic “OBD” port and links with your device.  Now whenever you use your car Automatic Pro will:

  • Trip logging
  • Business tagging
  • Engine light diagnostics
  • Crash alert

Highly recommend this device. All my family’s car has Automatic Pro installed.

Best Apps for REALTORS- Scanning: Camscanner


Use your phone or images to create PDF scans (basic account: Free). In my humble opinion, this is the best scanning application available for IOS and Android.  It takes great scans using your phone’s camera and organizes multiple files on your phone or uploaded to the cloud.  I love this for the inevitable issue when a client (or other agent) sends multiple pictures of a form.  Using Camscanner you take the images from your picture library and instantly create a PDF scan. Done!

Best Apps for REALTORS- Pictures: Pro HDR X


Take stunning photos with your smartphone ($1.99).  Your smart device is a powerful pocket camera.  This app will balance the dark and light of a picture.  You can use the slider to quickly balance the light and take amazing still pictures. However, we always recommend you hire a professional photographer to best market your seller’s home.

Best Apps for REALTORS- Evernote


Let Evernote change the way you organize your personal and professional life. Take notes, create to-do lists, and save things you find online into Evernote. Evernote will sync everything between your phone, tablet, and computer automatically. I describe Evernote as my “digital” memory of everything I want to remember. If I see an article I like and want to remember, I take a note in Evernote.  If I have an email I want to remember, I send the email to Evernote. If I want to remember where I parked, I take a picture with Evernote… you get the picture.

Best Apps for REALTORS- Notes: Notability

Notabilty (IOS Only) 

Take digital notes, record audio with your smart devices. This is my favorite note taking app for both iPhone and iPad.  This amazing tool will take digital notes as you type or write out your notes.  What is cool.  When you review the recording your notes will appear at the point in the recording when you take the note.

Best Apps for REALTORS- Health: LoseIt


Get healthy with the best Health tracking app. I love this App. Using this app it helped me lose over 40 pounds!  Whenever the weight creeps back on…and it will (curse you tasty Tacos) I boot up the app and start to drop off the weight.
