In Nashville’s booming real estate market, the most successful agents don’t have time to be bound to a desk or a home office. Instead, they find the tools that work for their mobile lifestyles to not only make their jobs easier, but to make them a better resource for their clients. These five apps do just that.

Benchmark Realty Smarter Agent App

At Benchmark all of our agents have access to our Smarter Agent app as a part of their membership. This all-in-one mobile app solution provides our agents and their clients with a more real-time look at the market than Zillow or Trulia. Not only does our app pull from the most accurate and updated listing information, it allows agents and clients to search by neighborhood and subdivision as well as by address, MLS number and map. Plus, all leads go directly to our agents. Available on Apple and Android devices. Not a Benchmark agent yet? Don’t worry, there are a few other apps out there for you.

Zillow Premier Agent
Now more than ever home buyers are turning to online tools before ever engaging a real estate agent. If you’re looking for a lead generator, consider signing up for Zillow Premier Agent. As a free Zillow user, you can submit your own listings and claim those uploaded from your MLS. As a free user, up to three other buyer’s agents will appear on your listings. With the premier membership, your name appears exclusively on your listings.

Palm Agent
With Palm Agent, you can run quick, easy and accurate estimates for your buyers and sellers—from monthly payments and itemized closing costs to net sheets that estimate how much sellers will net at close. By being an even better resource for your clients while home shopping, you’ll improve their experience and increase your chance for referral business.

City Maps
A big part of being a successful real estate agent is positioning yourself as a neighborhood expert. They say perception is reality, and City Maps makes it easy for your clients to see you filling this need. You can build custom maps to easily answer “where are the best _____ in this neighborhood” questions. Work commercial listings? City Maps makes it easy to help plan locations for retail stores.

Open Home Pro
Make collecting open house leads easier by taking the guesswork out of client follow-up and presenting yourself as a tech-savvy agent. By gathering client information digitally with Open Home Pro, you don’t have to worry about deciphering their handwriting later. Plus, this app automates your follow-up emails and prioritize your leads by people who don’t have an agent or who have a home to sell to help you better organize your time.
