Chris Smith’s Must-Have Mobile Apps

By Molly on October 26th, 2011


Good afternoon readers! Today we’re blogging live from Inman News’ Agent Reboot at Hynes Convention Center in Boston. The day kicked off with Inman’s Chief Evangelist, Chris Smith, talking about the evolution of technology. He began by sharing his own personal, technology timeline which he confessed all began when he got his first Nintendo! He then went out to share some general thoughts about social media for real estate. Some of the best sound bites:

He then transitioned into his formal presentation “20 Mobile Tools That Will Make You Stand Out.” Chris began by saying there are more people in the world with cell phones than tooth brushes. In his opinion, the iPhone is the premier mobile device. He asked, “Don’t you want the device where the company makes the phone AND the operating system?”

Chris talked about the importance of optimizing your email messages for mobile. He stressed that your email subject line, the first sentence of the message and general brevity are key in getting people to open your emails.

The rest of his presentation focused on the mobile apps you must explore and he recommends as tools for expanding your capabilities, your lead generation and customer service abilities. Here are a few he highlighted which we completely agree are must-haves:

Real estate professionals – what mobile apps are on your must-have list?

    Thanks for sharing Molly. Chris is great! He is enthusiastic, entertaining and knowledgeable. I saw him give this presentation in Toronto and Las Vegas this year. The great thing is his list is evolving day by day so I always look forward to what’s next!

  3. After installing Glympse on my Droid, it looks like it’s more about safety than it is about “giving someone a glimpse of a neighboorhood.” Is there a feature that I’m missing?

    PS… great app for safety, definitely!
