Here are the top resources and tools every real estate agent needs in their toolkit:

- Marketing materials: Such as business cards, brochures, and postcards, are an essential tool to create for yourself. Use these materials to promote your listings, share your contact information, and build your brand in your community. We recommend using Canva to create your own or buying a premade template on Etsy.
- A customer relationship management (CRM) system: A software program that helps agents manage their interactions with clients and prospects. A good CRM system should allow you to track and organize leads, schedule appointments, and keep track of important details.
- Professional-quality photographs: An essential for showcasing listings and attracting potential buyers. Invest in a good camera and lens, and consider hiring a professional photographer for high-end listings.
- A social media presence: Social media platforms, such as Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, provide a way for agents to connect with potential clients and share information about their services. Use these platforms to promote your listings, share updates, and showcase your expertise.
- An email marketing program: Email marketing is a powerful way to stay in touch with potential clients and keep them informed about new listings and other updates. Look for a real estate-specific email marketing program that allows you to create and send professional-looking emails. We use Flodesk and absolutely love it! It allows you to get create a beautiful design and grow your list of subscribers.
By having these resources and tools in your toolkit, you will be able to streamline your operations, provide better service to clients, and grow your businesses by helping more clients.
