Apto Aggregated Reviews
Ran my own shop for years. CoStar is far from perfect but it saves a ton of time. Run reports, add your market insights and service your clients. The tenant tool is horrible, save your money. APTO is as good as the time you invest. Use it now with a national firm I sold out to. At the end of the day the client hires the individual. Just make sure you can compete with the big boys.
Not clientlook bro, it’s not a real crm and we’re getting rid of it and switching to Apto on a monthly basis. If you want a licensed product, ACT real estate is your best bet.
Apto sucks, we had it for 3 weeks and cancelled it. Did absolutely nothing for us
Realnex and it’s not even close. The ability to customize database fields is key to providing relevant information for your clients. I think there’s a cheaper realnex option than $139. Didn’t think apto lived up to what the were selling.
Realnex is not the prettiest but it’s definitely more powerful than apto.
RealNex is 139 a month is that cheap? Apto is 149
I don’t like Apto, the video they showed us was completely not what it is. It’ll get better as my team and I use it more. There only good feature IMO is prospect and nurture. It takes far longer to make more calls, but the advantage is we can see each others notes (I’m on a team).
Make sure your data upload is DIALED IN before uploading. Get rid of all duplicates.
Curious on how Realnex is. We’re signed up for a year of Apto
A lot of our brokers used Apto in the past, but it is complex and many of them said it felt like they were working for Apto and not vice versa. I have yet to use RealNex, but Apto was a flop at my company.
I have worked with several Salesforce -based tools and they are pretty good. The Force.com platform is solid and flexible too.
For BROKERAGE these are Apto and REThink.
I hear a lot from Apto about new features and such, but I just knew someone who switched from Apto to REThink bc they said Apto wasn’t able to support their users.
Functionally, however, I don’t see a substantial difference between the two. Underneath they are quite similar.
I’ve used two versions of apto, ideal (NGKF), whatever the Millichap one was circa 2011, a spreadsheet, and I think REA is, in spite of the way it looks, the very best CRM available. Nothing is easier to tailor to your business, and at the end of the day, you’re the one that has to be happy with it.

GRIN games emerged
As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
v0.1.2.1 Plain Conversions - wordpress plugin to convert your visitors
v0.1.1. Expanded core offering to visual productions
It's Autumn 2017 and GRIN tech agency's website is born.
