There’s more to your real estate future than worrying about clearing title and negotiating inspection credits. Before you get to those places, you need to be able to run a business -your business, and there are a lot of tools to help you do that.

There’s so much noise out there about how to navigate a challenging market. This April, let Inman help you cut through the clutter to make smart business decisions in real time.

There’s more to your real estate future than worrying about clearing title and negotiating inspection credits. Before you get to those places, you need to be able to run a business — your business, and there are a lot of tools to help you do that.
Customer relationship management solutions and transaction automation are all part of the bigger picture, the long-term. But what about empowering you to do to more in less time before you get to following up and signing off? Inman assembled a quick list of a few software products designed to help you do just that. These are products that don’t necessarily fit into a specific category, other than getting work done.
Tasks, transactions, and deals
Trackxi is a transaction tracking and deal communication application.
Trackxi is an app for managing all the little things that hamper progress between signature and closing. It’s not a clinical transaction manager, but more of an activity management solution, and it’s very good at it. It’s Trello, or Asana, for real estate deals. It includes task list templates, which can be edited, visual, actionable timelines, dynamic calendaring and a non-CRM contact management element relevant only to active deals.
Communications are handled in-app and can include title and mortgage vendors, as well as clients, using permission-based views to ensure they’re not distracted by irrelevant business tasks. The intent of Trackxi is to support and inform users as to the who, when and what of a deal. Log in, find out, go about your day.
