A common question many REALTORS® grapple with is which real estate software/ technology tools to invest in and which ones to, well, leave on the sidelines.
Technology perhaps hasn’t been a focal component of your business and you may not be very tech savvy. But you know that social media and real estate software, such as real estate CRMs, have emerged and have proven themselves vital to running a business in a competitive marketplace.
Important tools for your business can include a social media management dashboard, such as Hootsuite, a digital document signature service, such a DocuSign, a blog, a powerful IDX, and/ or a tablet, such as an iPad.
Should you use a Realtor CRM “in the cloud” or are you better off sticking with a standalone system? This blog post will explain why a cloud-based Realtor CRM is your best option.
A cloud-based system, also known as “web-based,” is one that you access through the internet. A standalone system on the other hand is one you download on your computer (to your computer’s hard drive).
This is a re-blog from a recent article in Inc. Magazine, called “How to Be the Most Memorable Person in the Room.” We thought we’d re-blog it because as a REALTOR®, you’re constantly dealing with prospects and clients so it’s so important to stay memorable and “top of mind.”
What really stood out to us in this article is the when the author, Christina DesMarais, states “Be interested in what’s going on in other people’s lives.” If you’re an avid reader of our blog, “The Real Estate Contact Management & Marketing Blog” you’ll know that this is something we’ve always highly recommended.
What do REALTORS® from RE/MAX, Century 21, and Keller Williams have to say about IXACT Contact’s Real Estate CRM?
Wondering what others have to say about IXACT Contact’s real estate contact management and email marketing software?
Here’s what some real estate professionals say about IXACT Contact’s real estate CRM:
The IXACT Contact program is spectacular! It’s intelligently thought out and well designed. I love how simple and intuitive it is.
- Mark Agnew, RE/MAX Professionals
I love IXACT Contact! With it, I’ve created a contract to close process that works really well. I’ve put a buyer through start to finish and it’s like having a very expensive admin help me. Emails go out on schedule and the buyer loved the reminders. The key is in the product’s ability to drive off of the contract and closing dates, which not all systems will do. And it’s so easy to set up!

You’re considering a real estate CRM like IXACT Contact. But maybe you’re thinking: it’s a tough economy, I’m not getting a lot of new real estate leads and clients, and so paying another monthly fee for yet another product/service just doesn’t seem doable right now.
If this sounds like you, it might be time to re-evaluate.
Take a look at your expenses and the income you’re generating from these expenses. Which expenses are providing you with a return on investment (ROI)? Which ones are worth keeping and which ones are worth cutting off?
Are you effective in your real estate marketing? Read the below article that was featured in AGBeat. It highlights the importance of tracking and measuring your real estate marketing and lead generation activities. There’s no point in spending money on marketing if it’s not effective, and if you’re not tracking and measuring the effectiveness of your marketing, promotion, and lead generation activities, you could be throwing your hard earned dollars down the drain.
If you’re using IXACT Contact, tracking and measuring is easy. IXACT Contact has a field in the contact profiles for “Original Source of Contact.” You can run a pre-formatted, “Original Source of Contact Summary” report in less than a minute!
