With so many real estate apps on the market today, figuring out which ones deserve space on your phone or iPad isn’t easy. That’s why we put together this list of the most innovative real estate apps that are helping Realtors stay organized, market their brands, and close more deals in 2022.

Best Real Estate CRM Apps

1. Propertybase

Let’s face it: To get ahead in real estate in 2022, drip campaigns, text messaging, a mobile app, call logging, pipelines, a dialer, and so on are no longer optional in a customer relationship management (CRM) tool. Luckily, Propertybase is up to the challenge, ticking pretty much every box that today’s real estate agents, teams, and brokerages need out of an app.

Combining a rock-solid, Salesforce-based CRM with MLS integration and killer IDX lead-generating websites that work together seamlessly, Propertybase is a true all-in-one platform that won’t let you down.

Throw in an available transaction management platform, and you may not need to buy any more software—ever.
