The Education Team of Independence Title frequently attends conferences and webinars to stay up with the latest and greatest in technology in the real estate industry. Using that information, we created a list of “tech tips” that we think are worth your while. Here’s the first 5 for you to check out:
1) LinkedIn Export
Did you know you can export the email address and job title/company of all of your LinkedIn connections into an excel file for an easy upload into say… your CRM?! YES! We were just as shocked and it’s easy to do. You can simply follow this LINK (you must be logged into LinkedIn) or click on “connections” on your home page in LinkedIn, click on the settings wheel, and then export your connections. VOILA!
Have you ever tried to book a meeting with someone and end up 15 emails later with no agreement on time/date? So frustrating, right? Wouldn’t you love to eliminate the back and forth and just send one email with all of your availability and then they can select the time slot that works for them? AND wouldn’t it be cool if it auto adds to both of your calendars as soon as they select the time slot?! CLICK HERE to see this life saver you won’t be able to live without. Note** This is only available for Gmail users through a google extension for our google calendar. (We see they are working on compatibility with outlook so stay tuned!) We can’t help but love the quote on their site: “THE TROUBLE WITH BEING PUNCTUAL IS THAT NOBODY’S THERE TO APPRECIATE IT ” — Franklin P. Jones 🙂
3) RE Clarity App
Out of town clients? Use the REclarity App to send specific, personalized zoom and point video messages that communicate as if you were there in person. You can showcase key features of a home that is tailored to a particular client’s needs such as providing specific instructions or requests to contractors for repairs, property management or staging, follow up with clients and answer questions, share visual status on repair work or construction or report/describe property damage or areas in need of attention. Click HERE for a video demo. We think this will definitely make you look like a ROCK STAR to your clients!
4) Google Alerts
Did you know you can get an email as soon as something hits the internet? Want to stay on top of anything that is on the web about you? Or maybe a client? Maybe you want instant updates about a product you like or to keep up with news stories… By creating a Google Alert, you can get email notifications any time Google finds new results on a topic that interests you. No need to keep hitting refresh… CLICK HERE to get started.
5) GBoard for iPhone
Last but not least, we all got really excited about this one. It’s a keyboard add on for your iPhone (we hear it’s coming to Android sooner rather than later so stay tuned!) Basically its main functionality is to eliminate the frustrating back and forth we all go through when bouncing between apps; no more Google searching, copying the link, jumping back into messages, and then pasting the results. Watch this quick little video… We’re pretty sure you’ll be racing to download it like we did!
