Isabella Roland • 14 Jul 2022 • 5 min read

Even if you’re new to working in the world of real estate, you’re probably already aware of just how hectic your days can get, what with constantly looking for new properties to sell, meeting clients, and organizing viewings. 

This makes finding a way to simplify your job to make everything more streamlined an absolute must. And there’s really no better way to go about doing this than with a couple of top-tier, real estate-friendly apps. 

Apps are the perfect tool to up your game and set you apart from your competition in the highly competitive world of housing sales. So, to help you pick the ones that are right for you, here are our top apps for real estate agents that you can start using today. 

1. Curb Hero Real Estate Software


One of the top real estate apps currently available, instead of offering a sign-in sheet on visits, using Curb Hero at your open house will make signing in your visiting clients an absolute breeze. 

For one thing, you won’t have to spend time deciphering unique handwriting, and you’ll be able to keep all of your visitor data in one place through this platform. It’s effortless to customize for each open house experience and really takes some of the hard work out of hosting your properties. 

Here’s just one review that highlights why Curb Hero is one of the best real estate apps you can find: 

“My go-to for open houses – I host a few open houses each month as a real estate agent and use [Curb Hero] for every single one. It takes 5 minutes to set it up, then I simply place my iPad near the entrance for guests to sign in. 

“What I love most is the simplicity for guests – I always get accurate info, they never object to signing in and are often delighted at how easy it is over a paper form, and I can even set up automated text follow-ups to connect immediately with guests. 

“This sets me apart when they’re going to other homes the same day and keeps me top of mind, providing great leverage when I’m busy at the open house. Can’t recommend it enough – and the team behind it is incredible – they provide great support and even reached out to me to see how they can make my experience better.”

2. DocuSign



Although not solely designed for realtors, it’s hard to deny that, as apps for real estate agents go, you can’t go wrong with this simple-to-use signing software. Simply put, DocuSign is the perfect app for taking contracts and other important documents on the go. 

You can scan physical copies from your phone and share links so your clients can see and sign forms easily in the palm of their hand. DocuSign is even a multiplatform app, so you can access your files both from your phone and your computer at any time, making it the perfect app for both in and out of the office. 

3. Canva


In need of easy-to-use but high-quality software for designing invites to open houses as well as stylized social media posts? Canva is one of the best digital real estate apps for such a task. 

With both an app and a website, Canva is perfect to design for use on the go and when you’re in the office. They have a large library of free templates for you to choose from, but for more detailed designs and specific event flyers, there is a Pro version available. 

See if Canva is right for you with this top review below: 

“I’m in love!! The amount of time it took for me to generate a flyer blew me away. It looks so well made and [professionally] done. The ease of use and function was phenomenal and far exceeded my expectations. I’m hoping there is a tutorial on [accessibility] options or guidelines so that I may follow them and reach a broader base with my service work.”

4. VoiceNation 


Ok, we might be a little biased with this one, but if we’re being honest, we truly believe that our VoiceNation app is one of the best real estate applications you can use with your business. 

Our professional Virtual Receptionists and Live Answering team are trained to answer calls, book appointments, forward calls to you and your team, send listing information to clients, and answer basic questions regarding your real estate services. 

With our help, you can easily manage and track calls and customer appointments, letting you spend more time being hands-on and not being glued to your phone. The VoiceNation app allows you to manage your account’s minutes and check your account from your phone! 

5. Matterport


In this day and age, buyers aren’t always able to be physically present at a property to look around before purchasing, and Matterport is a perfect app to use to facilitate such a requirement. 

Able to create an all-immersive and online 3D experience for your potential buyers to take a peek inside their potential new home, this app can be used on your phone or via their website. Matterport even comes with free and paid options for different business needs. 

Just listen to what one person had to say about this app’s benefits: 

“It takes some doing, but once you get the hang of it, you can map out a floorplan quite nicely. It’s not something you can rush through though. And I’m not 100% certain but I believe this app can also be used to manually take 360 photos on any cell phone. 

“However, it’s made for a device that can hold cell phones and make 360 photos and the like MUCH more accurate. I have seen people say that they have gotten better results doing those manually, but I haven’t had any problems.”

6. Calendly


Last, but by no means least, we have Calendly, which allows you to schedule and confirm appointments with current clients and potential sellers and buyers through an easy-to-use and user-friendly calendar app. 

This is the perfect app to send meeting invites and reminders, especially if you or your client use a different kind of calendar service or organization app, and Calendly can integrate into other scheduling services to make operations seamless. 

Those were just our top real estate apps that we suggest using to make your realtor career that much easier. Of course, if you’re looking for more than just an app to help your business, then you might want to consider the rest of our VoiceNation services. 

From Live Chat and call answering to personal Virtual Receptionists, there’s a lot we can offer your business.
