At The Agent Accelerator, we believe that there are too many cost-intensive solutions for real estate agents, and none of the ones we have tried are as easy, intuitive, robust and effective as they proclaim to be.
Much of our focus is to seek out more cost effective (often times FREE) alternatives that provide the same (or at least similar) solutions.
We have some favorite tools to handle project management and CRM duties for you including ASANA, Google Contacts, Dropbox, and good, old fashioned Blogging for quality lead generation (that you don't have to pay extra for... wink wink). Why someone would pay for a website to generate leads and then pay for the leads makes no sense to us.
Anyway, here is Laura's take on these apps and if you want to read more, check out her blog post on The Agent Accelerator.
