Productivity Tools For Real Estate Agents From Professional One - Productivity Nugget #148

Note from Productivity Junkies Founder Darin Persinger - I met Michael McClure aka Professional One at the recent Agent Reboot Seattle. Michael is the Founder of the real estate franchise Professional One, thought leader in social media and a great real estate blogger. But that is what Michael does, not who Michael is. I believe he is a passionate, funny, thinker that cares about the real estate industry.

I asked him yesterday what tools does he use and how does he become a Productivity Junkie. Check out his educational and funny  video in Productivity Nugget #148 - Productivity Tools For Real Estate Agents.

Productivity Tools #1  - The Apple iPad

I saw Michael using his iPad in person at the Agent Reboot Seattle event.

Even though he jokes in the video and brings up my lame iPad, I see so many ways that the iPad could be a great productivity tool AND a presentation tool.

Productivity Tools #2 - Apple products in general

All Apple products. I use a Mac. Michael uses a Macbook Pro and his iPad.

Why? It just does thing faster and easier. Having a Mac has saved me many of frustrations. I think this is a good productivity tool.

Productivity Tools #3 - Things - task management on the Mac

Next, Michael shares about Things, a productivity tool and project manager that he can use on his iPad and Macbook Pro. He does point out a draw back to Things is that he can't share your list, info with someone else.

Something I noticed though was that Things costs $50. Interesting the Michael would choose to invest in his business vs. using so many free productivity tools out there, don't ya think?

Productivity Tools #4 - Personal Brain - Mind Mapping

For bigger ideas Michael uses mind maps. And he recommends Personal Brain. I also use mind maps, simply because that is the way my mind works. I doodle with pen and paper and draw out my ideas and thoughts. That is what mind mapping allows you to do. Interesting to see that Michael uses this technique and I might have to check out the tool he uses for it also.

Productivity Tools #5 - Over schedule

I guess he is using the Ben Franklin philosphy "If you want something done, ask a busy person."

Productivity Tools #6 - Accountability Partner/Coach

Michael mentions that his business partner Todd Waller helps keep him focused and  having an accountability partner or a real estate coach could be great productivity tools.

I think this is a great idea and if this is the right time for you to start a coaching relationship with me, feel free to head over to my Productivity Junkies Facebook Page and leave a comment that you are looking for an accountability partner. Maybe you will connect with another Productivity Junkie there.
