I’ve added to my things I can’t live without list!

I broke down and got Top Producer to help me plan and track my daily activities and leads better.

Since getting it, my wife has even noticed a major change in me. She says now I'm not upset at 11pm when I remember something that I was supposed to do.

She also says I'm getting more done in less time. I'm getting done with some to do lists by noon, giving me more time to prospect and play with my kids. I'm not back tracking as often to fix things I forgot to do earlier in the day.

Even I noticed I'm getting more done in less time. Now I'm scheduling follow ups with new clients that I may forgotten in the past, just because I forgot to write an e-mail that I told myself I needed to write.

This has sky rocketed my conversion rate, as well as my sanity, and my wife has even let me get a new laptop to go with my new toy.

Anything that you can do to help keep this crazy business organized is only going to benefit you both in the business sense and in a personal sense.  I am working on this part of things as well at the moment.  It is amazing how much things improve when you make some small but profound changes to the way that you do things!

Todd, is the first time you've implemented use of a database management system or switched from another system to Top Producer?

Organization and time management is so important. Whether it is Top Producer or something else, a client database and transaction tracking system helps.

Good work Todd!  I use Wise Agent for my contact management and I could not live without it!

Yup, Top Producer was my favorite.  I LOVED it....then my broker decided to create her own, so we no longer use it.

Jon - I wish I had figured out a long time ago that this is a crazy business - lol

Irene and Jeff - Yes this is the first time I've used a datamanagment system, unless you count those wonderul little postets. But, my desk and wall have run out of room.

Derrick - It has become invaluable to me

Mary - Never heard of wise agent. May have to check it out, what is the cost?

Becky - Decided to create her own, wow, that must have been an undertaking.

Todd,

Good, now you can put me in your database as a cold client, but one that might just buy IF that perfect property shows up......remember trees, and no close neighbors :)

Todd,

I'm researching agent management systems and came across your post from 2007. Are you still using Top Producer? So many people flee Top Producer in frustration. What's your opinion after using it for a while? Thanks.

Dave, I was one of those that stop using Top Producer because of the frustration of everything you needed was an add-on and had an additional cost. I am now using one that came with my website and it is 1/8 the cost and does everything I needed from Top Producer with out all their junk.

Todd, thanks for your quick response!

Leaving TP seems to be a common theme. But many TP users may stay with it because of all the time and data entry they have invested. Last time I tested TP, a number of years back, they didn't have an export feature. Thereby, the users and their data became captivated.

To be fair to TP, I don't know if they fixed that feature yet.
