How FitSmallBusiness Evaluated the Best Real Estate CRMs

For a real estate agent or office, juggling each lead, understanding their position in the pipeline and moving that contact through the buying cycle is overwhelming and leaves little time for showing houses. A comprehensive real estate CRM can help you save time and streamline the sales process resulting in more commissions and less confusion. Based on our comparison of 19 CRM solutions, these are the most important criteria:
  • Price: Price is often the first thing that real estate agents consider when it comes to a CRM solution; without an acceptable price point, all of the best real estate CRM features will not be affordable for small to mid-sized agencies
  • Ease of use: Usability for beginners and experienced real estate agents is an important test for a CRM solution because tracking that is difficult means that leads will fall through the cracks and money will be wasted
  • Customer support: Customer support is vital for a good overall experience using a real estate CRM and improves satisfaction with the overall product; long wait times, limited communication channels or paying extra for support can add to expenditures
  • Contact tracking & management: Robust system for inputting leads into the tracking system and following each contract through to a sale
  • Third-party integration: Integration is an essential part of the equation because having to use several systems to manage leads or multiple listing service (MLS) listings eats up time and increases frustration
  • Overview of workflow: A CRM should be easy to understand with one glance; a visual pipeline keeps Realtors on top of tasks and engaged with contacts all the way through the sale
  • Sales reporting & forecasting: From employee performance to marketing efforts, knowing how the team is performing and projecting results against goals is critical
  • Marketing automation: From texting campaigns to auto-responders, a real estate CRM has to enable the agent to set up their marketing and advertising responses for incoming leads without manual input
Wise Agent CRM checks all of the boxes because it is an affordable real estate CRM with robust features like automated marketing and landing pages combined with lead tracking. Wise Agent is flexible enough to be user-friendly with a visual dashboard and powerful enough to help you stay engaged with contacts all the way through the sales cycle while saving you time and effort.
