Refresh APP for REALTORS®

REALTORS® are always looking for ways to make their lives easier and their businesses run smoother.

Smartphones have become so mainstream and many professionals use them in all aspects of their businesses. The following article was recently posted by InmanNews and this app is something you won’t want to miss out on!

Refresh is the Free App Every Social Agent Must have on their Phone

Remember that scene in “The Devil Wears Prada” where Andy and Emily needed to memorize notebooks full of faces and names so they could feed Miranda information at her party?

While this case of memorizing details about business associates was a little extreme, it did showcase the importance of being able to recall information about our business contacts on the fly.

A human brain can remember only about 150 meaningful relationships, according to Robin Dunbar, a professor at Oxford University. One hundred fifty people?! I can count at least 70 people in my family alone between aunts, uncles, cousins, second cousins and so on. Throw in connections I have made in school and work and I am in the mid-hundreds. Top it off with the connections I have made in the social media world and I am now in the thousands.

Now, do I have “meaningful” relationships with thousands of people? I would like to think so, but realistically is just isn’t possible.

As a real estate professional who thrives on business relationships, I can only image the number of contacts that comprise your book of business. I can almost guarantee after adding up past and current clients, prospects, home inspectors, mortgage advisers and so on, you are right up near the thousands as well.

The need for a “social” cheat sheet is real, and to my delight I discovered an app named Refresh while attending Real Estate Connect San Francisco last month. In a nutshell, Refresh syncs with your calendar and alerts you with information about who you will be meeting with before the meeting starts. This information, which is called your dossier, is broken down into several categories including mutual contacts and interests, shared passions, and important moments. You can even connect with them on social media through the app.
