The Resources For Success!
Welcome to our amazing Resources Section! These are some of the top real estate resources I use and recommend. Many of the resources here are crucial to running my business and helping our clients succeed.
Before digging into the awesome resources I know and trust, an important disclosure:
Some of the links below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something. Please do not spend any money on these products unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goals.
Customer Relationship Management (CRM)
With CRM, you can store customer and prospect contact information, accounts, leads, and sales opportunities in one central location.
We love Real Geeks because it’s truly an all-in-one real estate solution. Complete with IDX Websites, Lead Manager CRM, SMS Autoresponder and more.
Follow Up Boss
What we love about Follow Up Boss (FUB) is the clean interface and simplicity. A little less robust than Real Geeks, but just as quality.
Lion Desk offers the same features as Follow Up Boss, but for half the price. The User Interface is a bit more confusing, but the money you will save makes up for it.
FSBO / Expired Listing Leads (Prospecting)
Looking for FSBO or Expired listings and need a platform to reach them fast? Here are our recommended resources.
The Red X
This all-in-one solution offers FSBO & Expired listings with a CRM / Power Dialer and scripts to help you know what to say.
Just like The Red X, this product offers easy to access expired and FSBO listings with software to help maximize your cold calling experience.
Same as the Red X and Vulcan. Espresso agent Includes a power dialer, full CRM platform, and video marketing from StoryTellr.
Inside Sales Agent (ISA)
An ISA is a highly skilled salesperson who will follow up and qualify all your incoming leads within a matter of minutes. ISA companies like these can help increase conversion rates significantly.
We like Agentology because they are U.S. based, and offer 24/7 365 follow up with up to 10 times via phone, SMS and email! The price is very affordable too.
Aiva is another 24/7 lead follow up concierge service like Agentology, however they only text. However, because of that, the price is a little bit cheaper than Agentology.
Speed to Lead
Speed to lead is a service we haven’t tried yet but will in the future. It stood out because, in terms of price, this one is the best option.
IDX platforms are a great way to not only show online listings but also capture and track your leads. Here are our top picks for IDX Website Platforms.
IDX Broker is one of the most popular IDX platforms for Agents & Brokers. Beautiful design, simplified functionality, MLS home search, lead generation tools and more!
IHome Finder is much like IDX Broker and Real Geeks. They offer a beautiful home search website platform with CRM. Visit the website below to learn more.
Real Geeks IDX
On top of their CRM, Real Geeks offers IDX integration as well. Easy-to-use powerful property searches, lead capture, CRM and email automation. The full all-in-one platform.
Email Service Providers (Nurture)
CRM’s may be optional but an Email Service Providers (ESP) is absolutely necessary. If you are working without a CRM or your CRM doesn’t offer an email autoresponder, here are the top ESPs we recommend.
Active campaign is a beast when it comes to email automation. An industry leader in space and for the price, we believe it’s the best bang for the buck.
Convert Kit has a much better user experience for setting up and delivering your emails, however, it is slightly more in cost than Active campaign.
Mail Chimp is a crowd favorite because it offers everything the much-needed email drip and email automation functionality but 100% free for up to 2k leads.
Graphics & Branding
Need a way to create high quality flyers or graphics for your marketing materials? Here are some of our top recommended options.
Canva is a great way online resource that lets you easily create and edit flyers, logos, and graphics online. Their online software is wonderful.

Landing Page Platforms
In order to build a solid marketing funnel you need a solid landing page tool. Here are our recommended landing page platforms that we use and recommend.
Clickfunnels is the industry standard online landing page developer tool. Develop a beautiful high-quality landing page and funnel within minutes. The only con is it is a bit pricy.
Leadpages is like Clickfunnels but with less functionality. However, the price is much cheaper than Clickfunnels and the User interface is much better. Leadpages is more than enough if all you need is to setup beautiful landing pages.
Elementor is a 100% free amazing webpage / landing page editor for WordPress. Elementor is amazing if you have a WordPress website and have a bit of tech experience.
