Everyone knows Evernote, right? It’s an amazing tool for everything from making grocery lists to collecting and organizing things from the internet for ideas or to read later. It has incredible functionality that is so simple it can be used for any imaginable number of purposes. Oh, and did I mention it’s free? That’s right. Sure, there’s a pay version that offers even more features, but most people can get by just fine with the free version.
So, it would only be natural that someone would figure out how to use it for real estate. Krisstina Wise, is an Evernote Ambassador and covers it in her Paperless Agent training. If you want a comprehensive guide, however, I recommend Dean Oulette’s e-book, Evernote for Real Estate. Dean walks you through the process of setting up your Evernote to be a powerful tool in your arsenal. He even shares his file and notebook templates and shares valuable tips and tricks that make what could be complex simple for even a first time user.
I started using Evernote as part of my real estate business about 2 years ago when we were first starting out and on an extremely limited budget. Hell, at that time, sometimes free wasn’t even cheap enough. It instantly increased our productivity and efficiency. Today, we use it (and Trello) to make sure that our office processes are always up-to-date and accessible, make lists for things we need around this joint, and assign tasks and responsibilities to office personnel. My wife and I use it for everything from Christmas gift ideas, shopping lists, and vacation ideas to our “dream house” file which is filled with photos from web clippings.
Never be without your most important documents, files, and information. It is just one click away on Evernote.
