Evernote is a great tool for real estate people. It’s a cloud-based storage platform with great organizing and collaborating capabilities. Let me see if I can be more descriptive about that:
- You create ‘Notes’ in Evernote for anything you want to hang on to. It might be a line of text, a web page, an email, a video, an audio note, a PDF, a contract, a photo . . . really: any content viewable on your computer can be stored in a Note.
- Your Notes are actually housed in the ‘Cloud.’ So they are viewable on any internet connected device and your content is always synced and up-t0-date.
- There are also Evernote apps for Androids, Blackberries and Iphones which make it easier to use on a mobile device.
- You can share specific Notes with other people you designate – so it’s a great way for you to keep on the same page with, say, a client.
Here’s a video showcasing how one Realtor uses Evernote. Unfortunately, there is a minute or two of dead space where he demos how he uses Evernote with a mobile phone, but I think you’ll get it from what’s here:
Everthing you put into Evernote on your computer can be viewed on your phone or tablet. You can also use your phone to add to Notes – by say, taking a photo or making a voice note.
By the way, Matt Rathbun, who made the video, has pretty good information on how to use some of the best technology available to Realtors on his website: theagenttrainer.com. Check it out.
