7 Essential (and Free) Apps for Property Professionals

As property professionals, you are continually on the go - in meetings, at events, or out showing properties. As such, you need a toolkit of mobile apps that enable you to do your job while on the move.

We've put together a must-have list of the best apps (aside from Docusign electronic signatures of course) to make your day-to-day tasks so much easier, for free. All in the care of the cloud.


Have you ever forgotten a password? Or do you reuse passwords? Of course you do! It’s practically impossible to remember all the passwords that you require. But with 1Password, you don’t have to. The app creates strong, unique passwords for every site you visit, remembers them all for you, and logs you in with a single tap.

If you’re a list-lover like me, you’ll appreciate Evernote – the modern workspace that helps you be your most productive self. Take notes, make lists, photograph properties, clip web pages, and save pictures to your account using your smartphone or tablet. Evernote syncs all this data across multiple devices for access anywhere, and allows you to share your work with your fellow Evernoters.

Expense reporting is one of the most dreaded times of the week/month for a property professional. While traditionally you’d be forced to attach receipts to a sheet of paper and fill out a printed form, Expensify endeavors to make this task more convenient. The app scans your photo of the receipt and excerpts the main elements so you can add it to an expense report. Aspects such as the date, venue name and total spend can be identified as well as timed expenses, mileage, and trips.
