#1 complaint is that they claim it is mac friendly - but it totally is not. Any editing of any "standard pre-written Letter/Email" must be done in windows (wont even work with firefox on a mac).
#1 like - their mobile "app" (quotes because it is not really an app but web based mobile connection), is pretty sweet.
If anyone knows of a great one that is 100% mac friendly please do tell.
It all depends on what you want to track and what information to store. You need to ask yourself what is the intent? demographics, notes, homes seen, trickle marketing.....etc.
In addition to being a Realtor I have been a training clients on the use of computer applications since '94 and I have found in my experience that creating custom Excel workbooks, or an Access database can serve contact management needs just was well, if not better, as the packaged applications. Most people have Excel and Access already on their computer but aren't using them!
You may find that you don't need to purchase additional software - you coulld utilize what you already have.
Their idea of technical support is to copy a screen shot from the Microsoft support site and e-mail it to you. Avoid this company.
#1 thing is to use something! Contact management in extremely important. For building and retaining client base.

I never tried TopProducer simply because I can't see myself paying 40 dollars a month. I am new and still working on my client base, so cant afford to experiment.
I also just started using Constant Contact for my newsletters and they are extremely reasonable. You can do it yourself or hire someone to do it for you. I work with a very wonderful gal that takes care of my newsletter and although very experienced, she works at a very reasonable cost. If you would like her info, email me separately and I'll get you in touch with her. I'm sure she could help you via the internet and phone. No need for long drawn out sales pitch appointments.
In truth, using any Contact Management system will be a great advantage for you, so don't drive yourself crazy trying ot find the "perfect one"
I am trying out realtyjuggler. It comes with a 90 day free trial and it's web based so no matter if you have access to your own computer or not you can still use the program. I am a new agent and haven't tried alot of different things but this does look promising. Oh and it's $99/year after your trial period.
You can download a free 30 day trial of this software to try it before you buy it.
It integrates with Outlook and works with Windows 7, Vista or XP.
Im a huge fan of Top Producer 8i for my data base management,it has served me very well and increased my closings.
