As a Realtor attempting to stay on top of the latest tech and gadgets, it’s only natural that I end up with a smart phone. I chose Android to begin with, and so far I’m very pleased. When using the Android device, I found I could easily take advantage of it’s convenience being right in my hand at all times. Now, after using it for most of the year, I’ve decided to offer my favorite Android Apps for Real Estate Agents. Take a look!
