Paperless Real Estate Agent: Shrink PDF Files Online, FAST and FREE

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Providence Group Realty TREC# 0608931

I'm so excited!  Our office has a new secret weapon in our "Paperless Realtor Ninja" armory... 

Do you love small .pdf files, but find it difficult to adjust your scanner or software settings to make high quality, lightweight files that can easily be shared by email or online? 

Well, forget everything you know about scanners and software settings, and say hello to! 

SMALLPDF.COM -- The easiest way to compress your PDF online. 

This amazing app can instantly make a small, portable .pdf file out of any .pdf, .jpg, .doc, .xls, or .ppt file. And, it does it all -- in the cloud -- for FREE -- shrinking those large, unruly Goliaths to a perfect size that is still good quality. is browser-based, and works for all platforms. Whether you are Mac, PC or bask in pure Linux 'kewlness', all you need is "mad dragging and dropping skills"  to bake a perfect PDF casserole. 

  • Email delivery slow or incomplete because the attachment is too large? 
  • Can't print anything because printer memory is hijacked and queue is backed up? 
  • Hate docstorage and MLS file size limits? 

Just open in your browser. Drag and drop your file onto the screen, wait a few seconds while it shrinks, then download in a single click.  All of the compression takes place in the cloud, so there is nothing to tie up your machine. Files are reduced to 144dpi -- quickly, securely, and completely FREE! 

But wait… There's more!! 

You can also MERGE pdf files -- completely in the cloud, and for FREE.  No downloads. No logins. No cumbersome software to learn or buy. This is the quickest, easiest solution to combine multiple PDF files in seconds. 

Merge large quantities of .pdf files, and choose the order of files and pages in 3 simple steps:  

  1. Drag and drop your PDF files individually -- or add several to the box at one time.

    (Hint, you may see ads on this page, inviting you to download software to merge .pdf files.  They are well-placed ads. Ignore the ads! No download required. Just drag and drop.)

  2. As soon as you see the pages, you can start editing.

  3. Click "Merge PDF!", and Bob's your uncle. 

Oh yeah!  does exactly what it promises… Small PDF files in seconds. 

Your Broker will love you. Your colleagues will love you. Your customers will love you. Your MLS will love you. Your email provider will love you.  

Love We don't know if The Project team will ever see our praise, but hope you will join us with comments to recognize their efforts to help make our world a little smaller and more manageable. :-)

I am going to try this one out. I currently use Bullziip and it is a little cumbersome. Thanks! ~Marisa
