5 Tech Tools for Real Estate Team Productivity

Keeping a team of real estate agents organized and on task can be a difficult and thankless endeavor. Luckily, there are many technologies available to help real estate teams work together, giving team leaders one less thing to worry about. Here are five tools that can help your real estate team collaborate and stay productive.

#1. Internal Communication: Slack

Slack is internal communication for the modern team. Team members can organize projects into channels where they can instant message, share files, chat, and make calls. Slack allows users to simply drag and drop files of almost any kind into a channel to share with a group – for real estate teams, that could include Excel files of listings, as well as contracts in PDF format.

Useful features:
Customizable notifications – receive alerts only for important events
Comprehensive search – pull up every channel, message or file related to a client
App integrations – Slack can be integrated with other apps you may already use


#2. Proofreading On-the-Go: Grammarly

Grammarly is an extension that can be an add-on for browsers, platforms and apps – anywhere team members need to write and edit text. It flags spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and problems with sentence structure as users type. According to a study by Redfin and Grammarly, 43.3 percent of respondents said they would be less likely to tour a home if its listing contained spelling errors or incorrect grammar.

Useful features:
Wherever you need it – add Grammarly to your Chrome browser, and use it in Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, LinkedIn, Gmail, your desktop, and many other places
More than spellcheck – prevent usage, grammar, and contextual spelling errors
Grammar for everyone – plans are available with group pricing


#3. Electronic Document Signing: HelloSign

HelloSign is eSignature software that agents can use to gather legally-binding signatures on documents like listing agreements, contracts, and offer letters. HelloSign’s interface is simple, and brokerages or teams can sign agents up to share branding, coordinate documents, track document status and more.

Efficiency en masse – request signatures from up to 20 people simultaneously
Secure and seamless – integrates with popular apps like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Evernote


#4. Organization: Evernote

HelloSign is eSignature software that agents can use to gather legally-binding signatures on documents like listing agreements, contracts, and offer letters. HelloSign’s interface is simple, and brokerages or teams can sign agents up to share branding, coordinate documents, track document status and more.

Useful features:
Smart search – search text within images and documents, including handwriting
Digitize contacts – build up your contacts by scanning and digitizing business cards
Share and collaborate – share files and edit together with other users


#5. Social Media Marketing: Buffer

Agents active on social media will like Buffer, which is a social media service that distributes content across social media platforms and optimizes posting times to reach to as many followers as possible. With one click, agents can use Buffer to post on all of their social media accounts, including Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

Useful features:
