 Good morning Elva. Some folks swear by designations and others let them go after a period of time. CRM is like my using master inspector. Does it get me more business? – Not really

Hi Elva Branson-Lee I recommend followupboss just becuase of it's ease of use.  I think I was up and running within one hour.  Had tried top producer three times and the system was just too complicated for me.

One that has been around for a while and that I can get all of my data out of it in a usable format.

I like automated responses in mine and that they can get an IDX search. I like that I can customize them too. I like that I am immediately notified when someone makes a big change in their status.

Thanks for all of your responses. I know there is a CRM webinar coming up for AR members, and I plan to be there. However, I also know there will be one vendor pushing one platform. I ask for user advice here, because I would really like to know which features agents actually find indespensible before engaging a new CRM.  This Frugal Agent uses free or very inexpenxive aps for a lot of the functions in these responses : Trello, Realbird, Outlook, Mailchimp, etc. Plus, Georgia MLS provides a very good transaction management system, so I only need to be able to "nurture and touch" with my CRM. Still, it might be better to have everything in one ap, but only if it adds must-have features.  Your input is valuable.

Depends on the business needs, which vary by person.  For me, I use paper and excel and that suits me.  Looked into several solutions, but none were things I could see myself using at this point in time.

I successfully used Top Producer for many years. I want a complete record and an easy way to send mass email to the different kinds of contacts.

I use Outlook, not a great program but it fulfills a couple of must have criteria, 1. it is inexpensive, 2. Does not take a large investment in time to learn and fill, 3. No subscription fee.
