Agent Tools

Thousands of helpful agent tools flood Realtor’s newsfeeds and email inboxes daily. Having options is a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, having options is a good thing. Many of these systems and tools are real difference makers. However, having too many choices can also lead to shiny object syndrome. Shiny object syndrome is where agents are continually subscribing to the next “best tool” that they believe will help them take their business to the next level.

The agent tools I list here are the tools I use and recommend to real estate agents looking to scale their businesses.

I’m continually updating this page to reflect the newest and best systems and tools available.

Being completely transparent, if you use any of the links below to sign up or purchase the agent tools listed, I may earn an affiliate commission. That said, I ONLY promote the systems and tools that I use myself and honestly believe in.

The affiliate revenue generated helps me provide the best information and training possible. Should you decide to sign up for any of these services or products and use one of my affiliate links below, I want to thank you!

Camera Gear

  • Sony Alpha 7C Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera
  • Sony Alpha 7C Full-Frame Mirrorless Camera

    If you’re wondering how to shoot real estate videos, you’re probably wondering what camera you should get. The Sony Alpha 7C is the fourth digital camera that I’ve owned, and it is the perfect balance of features and portability. It’s a full-frame, mirrorless camera, 4K quality video, and 120fps footage. Before this camera came out, I used a Sony A7III, which lacks a screen you can flip around for vlogging. The Sony A7C adds in this feature, and it’s a bit smaller and cheaper than the A7III. If you’re looking for a mid-range camera, the Sony Alpha 7C is a great option.

  • Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8
  • Tamron 17-28mm f/2.8

    Out of all the wide-angle lenses I've used for Sony e-mount cameras, this Tamron 17-28mm f2.8 lens has the best overall value when paired with a full-frame Sony camera. The Tamron 17-28mm gives you that perfect wide-angle shot, and the f2.8 aperture creates a blurry background that is perfect for vlogs or shooting home interiors for real estate listing videos. The Tamron 17-28mm lens is available for under $800, a bargain compared to other lenses. It's also compact and lightweight, making it easier to carry along with you on a full day of shooting.

  • Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 for Sony Mirrorless Full Frame E Mount
  • Tamron 28-75mm F/2.8 for Sony Mirrorless Full Frame E Mount

    If it’s in the budget for two lenses, this would be my second pick. This lens is one of the best all-around lenses for walking and getting amazing photos and videos. It can be used for stunning portraits, capturing buttery b-roll, and still gets fairly wide at 28mm. This lens is tack sharp and won’t disappoint, especially for the price!

  • Shure MV51 Digital Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone
  • Shure MV51 Digital Large-Diaphragm Condenser Microphone

    Good audio separates the videos that get watched from those that get passed up. It amazes me that people will create video content but not invest in a quality microphone. This USB mic has excellent quality audio and best of all, plugs into your USB port on your computer. This is a great addition to a 1080p or 4k webcam. You can either have it sit on your desk or mount it on a mic arm (linked below). For nearly half of 2019, I rocked a webcam (linked below) and this mic for all my YouTube videos.  This is the best audio quality you'll get for your video but is limited to mostly being used in a studio with a computer nearby.

  • RODE PSA 1 Swivel Mount Studio Microphone Boom Arm

    This mic arm clamps to your desk and allows you to swivel your mic back and forth and set it in the perfect position, about a fist length away from your mouth. When you’re done recording you can swivel the whole setup out of the way to keep a clean workspace. In addition, it comes with a cable management system to hide the mic cord and keep things nice and tidy.

    This is one of the best value webcams on the market. Super simple to set up and provides high-quality HD video. For less than $100 this will get anyone started with creating live or recorded video. I used this webcam for over a year before moving to my DSLR setup.

  • Sony Alpha ZV-E10 Mirrorless VLOG Camera Kit
  • Sony Alpha ZV-E10 Mirrorless VLOG Camera Kit

    An excellent, cheaper option camera. In fact, I've shot many of my YouTube videos on this as I've had my A7C in for repairs or waiting on a lens, etc... Honestly, most won't be able to tell the difference and it's less than half the price including my recommended lens, the Sigma 16mm 1.4. It comes in black also but it's OOS often right now.

  • Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E
  • Sigma 16mm f/1.4 DC DN Contemporary Lens for Sony E

    This lens pairs great with the Sony ZV-E10 for talking-head style videos with buttery smooth backgrounds. For just over $1000 with the camera, this lens/camera combo is one of the best for the money, in my opinion.

  • Rad Power Bikes - Electric Bikes

    These things are the absolute best! We're on our fourth one we love them so much. Have had an electric bike since 2018. We currently own a Rad Wagon 4 and Rad Rover 6 Step-Thru. The Rad Wagon is great for hauling around kids or gear. You can add child seats, saddlebags, baskets, and more. It's extremely versatile. The Rad Rover 6 is comfortable and easy to ride with the fat tires (my wife loves it). We get so many compliments on them and anyone who tries them out inevitably ends up buying them. Say goodbye to struggling up hills! This makes biking so much more enjoyable.
