Technologies available to Estate Agents  

The estate agent industry has seen a significant transformation in recent years. Here are some cool technologies and tools which have had an impact on the industry.

  • Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) – Estate agents can use VR and AR to create virtual property tours, allowing potential buyers to explore homes from the comfort of their own spaces. This technology provides a more immersive experience and helps buyers get a better sense of a property before physically visiting it.
  • Drones – Drones are used to capture high-quality aerial images and videos of properties. This technology is particularly useful for showcasing large properties or those with unique features, such as extensive land or scenic views.
  • Mobile applications – Estate Agents often use mobile apps for property search, document management and communication with clients. These apps make it easier to access and share property information on the go.
  • CRM Software – Customer Relationship Management (CRM) software helps estate agents manage their client relationships, track leads, and automate marketing efforts. It streamlines communication and keeps agents organised.
  • Property Management Software – This technology is beneficial for agents who manage rental properties. It helps with rent collection, maintenance tracking, and communication with tenants.
  • Online Listing Platforms – Online real estate listing platforms, such as Rightmove, Zoopla, and, have become crucial for marketing properties and connecting buyers with agents. They provide a wealth of information and tools for homebuyers and sellers.
  • Video Marketing – Real estate agents use video marketing to showcase properties, offer virtual tours, and create engaging content for social media and property listings.

These technologies are continually evolving, and estate agents who embrace these tools can improve their efficiency, enhance the client experience, and stay competitive in the marketplace.
