The best $9.99 a Realtor Ever Spent

July 31 2013

As an agent your constantly bombarded by vendors wanting to sell you this widget or that service that will take your productivity to the next level, blah, blah, blah…  Well I’m not here to tell you about the next business growing tool that you ABSOLUTELY MUST INVEST IN!  Instead I’m going to tell you about a “tool” that will keep you sane on those hot summer days and beyond.

albumsLet’s face it, you spend a lot of time in your car mobile-office.  When you’re not speaking with clients or other agents on your (hands-free) phone why not listen to exactly what you want, when you want, without having to buy each and every song/album separately.

Whether you’re in your 20s or your 70s Spotify has the music library to satisfy pretty much every agent out there.  You can listen to some of the latest releases, oldies but goodies and everything in between.  Have a song you just can’t get out of your head? Sometimes the only cure is to blare it over your speakers as loud as you can!  With Spotify, you already practically own that song and with a few key strokes you can play it instantly.

Driving out side of town to show some rural properties?  No problem, just key up that country music playlist that you built from all the top country hits.  You can build and listen to playlists, store them offline on your mobile device so you can even listen to them when you don’t have an internet connection!

Realtor-SilhouettesThere are over 20 million songs at your disposal that you essentially own and can listen to whenever you’d like!  Plus with over 5 million users most of which with shared playlists you can very quickly and easily find the perfect playlist for your drive without even spending the time to build/customize your own!

Ok, I’m done raving about Spotify.  It’s awesome.

Don’t look at the $9.99 as an expense or a cost against your bottom line, look at it as an investment in your sanity.  It’s not always business OR pleasure, sometimes it’s both!
