I just found about hootsuite - it's great if you're doing a lot of social media. I also tried postlets and like it too.

Good luck to you!

I love picnik for editing photos before posting to the mls.

Hello Rick,
I would say that one of the top free tech tools is utilizing 'Postlets' for the ability to post your listings to numerous real estate web sites for free.

Another free tool that I use often and am very thankful for is 'Photo Story for Windows' or 'Moviemaker' (if you have a newer version of Microsoft Windows). This is a great program for creating videos from your photos to create a "Virtual Tour".

Interested to hear what other free tools agents will comment on.

Check out your local provider.

No listings to market? No Problem! They will provide listings for you to market to capture buyers.

There are so many out there. Make sure you have your mls ap for your phone-makes it easier to show property when you are out and someone asks a question about a property - you can pull up all the info. Having google earth or something like that to see maps of properties via aerial helps.

As a Keller Williams agent I can tell you that we have so many free tools that benefit us it is hard to name them all. But our eAgent tools and on-line training videos as well as our Team Leaders and MCAs who are always there to helpout an agent. I floundered through the real estate business until I began working with Keller Williams. I am now a professional. I have no qualms about my knowledge of my industry and I am continuously learning my business.
