Clockify comes in a desktop and mobile app version. Just flick the timer on whenever you’re working on something, and it’ll keep track of every minute spent. How you want to set up your projects for time tracking is totally up to you. For example, you might want to set up your projects into these categories:

  • Client relationship management
  • Social media marketing / social media management 
  • Document preparation
  • Client communication/client meetings 
  • Commuting to open houses/showings
  • Hosting open houses/showings
  • Negotiations
  • Lead generation efforts 
  • Preparing marketing materials 

Once Clockify collects your data, it’ll present you with plenty of colorful charts and resorts to give you insight into how you spend your time. You can view your time by day, week, locations, earnings and more. The free version should give you everything you need to start understanding where your time goes, but you can always upgrade to get additional features.

2. For receipt management: NEAT

Neat app for real estate agents

If you’re still manually adding up how much you spend on things like gas, client entertainment, and other expenses in an Excel sheet, it’s time to get with the times! 

NEAT is a document management app that helps you capture and upload receipt data to help you save time on data entry and consolidate all your expenses in one dashboard. All you have to do is snap photos of your paper receipts using the mobile app. NEAT will extract information like date, amount, and payment method from these paper receipts so that it’ll be much easier to add things up when you need to.  

Using the app makes end-of-the-month expense tracking or end-of-year tax filing so easy, eliminating the countless hours you’d spend trying to find your receipts.

4. For open house lead capture: Spacio

Spacio app for real estate agents

Spacio is a CRM real estate tool that helps you capture leads, market your listings, and communicate with new contacts. While it comes with multiple powerful capabilities real estate agents swear by, it’s praised as a helpful lead generation app for use at open houses so that no opportunities slip through the cracks.

If you ask visitors to sign in on paper when they attend your open houses, you might have to run into countless situations where you weren’t able to read illegible handwriting. If this has ever been the case, you’ll find Spacio to be a game changer. 

Spacio lets you set up customizable and branded lead capture forms you can get open house visitors to complete on web, mobile, or tablet. From there, you can even verify contact information, mark contacts for follow-ups, and set up automations to re-market new listings to interested contacts.

A second way you can use BomBomb for your real estate business is for client communication.
