Most realtors that I’ve worked with in my years in the real estate industry are Note-able – that is, they tend to scribble notes on napkins, the nearest Post-It or scrap of paper.
Goodness knows I’m notorious for doing the same.
Recently I came across a free product called Evernote. What this product allows you to do is either type a quick note into the software, add title and tags that can be recalled using the search engine; or, you can snag a whole, or parts of, a website in which you have found interesting information. You can even add photographs to your Evernote database.
As usual, I spent a good hour checking out the reviews and uses of this product before signing up. I typically look for how I can use it for my business, for personal use, and to see if any of my clients might be able to make use of it.
What I love most is the ability to have many notebooks for different content. Separate your Business notes, concepts, to-dos and ideas from your personal notes, books to read, grocery list, recipes, etc. You get the idea.
How does this apply to you, my real estate fans?
- There is an Evernote App for iPhone, Android and Blackberry
- There is an Evernote App to install on your computer
- There is a “capture” feature 1-click to add a website to your notebooks
- Take a photo of a hand-written note, and Evernote will identify the words written on your note, and make them search-able.
- The web version of Evernote automatically synchronizes with the Desktop and Mobile application.
The best point yet, is that your notes follow you where ever you go – whether you are on the road, at your office, working at home, or on your laptop in your favourite coffee shop, you always have access to your notes.
How can you be more Note-Able?
