I make notes and checklists on my phone constantly. Whether talking to a client, showing property, going to listing appointment - virtual or physical - making notes on the phone is something I am so used to! I want to share my top note and todo apps. FYI. I am possibly one of a few realtors using android phone, to be specific - OnePlus, but I believe all these are great on both iphone and Android platforms.
Microsoft TODO. After trying MANY(dozens) and searching for the best todo app, I finally stopped at Microsoft TODO. This app works on all platforms, including Apple computers, Windows, Android. It's simply the best (for me and my team). It's simple enough, fast enough, shareable, allows for sub-categories - steps for each task, allows for deadline, allows for reminders, allows to add files and quickly add specific task to my list. You can create multiple lists, change the theme, add emoji.
Google Keep. In fact, I am writing this post on my Google Keep Mac computer note app. It syncs instantly with my android phone, gmail cloud and any other device. The notes are super visual as you can layout them in Pinterest or list style. Phone app is extremely fast, very simple featuring limited options for color background, checkboxes for todo lists, ability to add photos and voice notes. You can tag your notes with #hashtag to create labels or categories. You might think that Evernote is better and I, for long, thought it was! However, Evernote became overkill for my needs and using Google Keep is something I have stuck with for several years now!
OneNote. Again, this is Microsoft! This is very complex note taking app also syncing on all platforms. I have this app saved on my phone and Mac home screen to take more serious notes and save large PDF, screen shots, MLS sheet data printouts, etc. I love it because you can create Notebooks and each notebook can have sections. This note taking app is widely used by college students as it is super easy to organize Class Notebooks. I find it useful for Real
Estate because I can log into it on my large screen and post large docs there with my comments, etc. When I am on the go, I can pull it up quickly from my phone and reference it. For example, my Notebook is called Cloud Realty, Sections are: In Contract, Current Listings, Showings, List2Lease, New Constructions, Clients. Once I click on Current Listings section it takes me to multiple pages, each devoted to a single listing. Moreover, the best feature is that once you are on that page - you can have everything in one space. The page is HUGE! You can enlarge or reduce it and see the whole variety of notes you took or images you saved on one page related to that listing!
