Keeping up with what’s happening in real estate is critical for any CRM system to stay on the cutting edge.  The Wise Agent Development Team spent the second week of July in beautiful San Francisco attending the Inman News Real Estate Connect Conference.  There they had the opportunity to mingle with some of the greatest minds in Real Estate Technology, listen to the industry’s best speakers, and speak with top agents from across the country.  They came home fired up and motivated to pass on some of the cool things they learned.

The theme that was running throughout the entire conference was how it’s “all about mobile”.  As a rule, Real Estate Agents are always on the move, and to stay relevant the systems they use must go with them.  Our Developers are currently working on expanding and improving the mobile version of Wise Agent. Stay tuned to our Blog and Facebook page for the latest updates on this exciting enhancement!  And as always, if you have any suggestions, we’re all ears!

Another tool that should be a part of your business is the MagicPlan App for iPhone. This app allows you to measure rooms and draw floor plans by just snapping a few photos!  Developed by Sensopia and first launched in 2011, this app is growing in popularity and it’s easy to see why! Watch for their Android app, coming to the marketplace this August.

First released in 2008, HomeSnap is another up-and-coming app for Real Estate.  With HomeSnap, take a picture of any home and instantly learn all about it. HomeSnap combines information from local Multiple Listing Services, tax records, census data, school information, and more!  For listed homes, the consumer can even see interior photos of the home and contact an agent to schedule a showing.  Check it out in iTunes or the Android Marketplace.

We hope this gives you some new ideas and helps you to be even more successful; we are all about working wiser!  If you attended, what were some of your favorite take-aways?  We’d love to hear them!
