Need help deciding on the right CRM for your real estate business? These 2021 Real estate CRM reviews will help get you on the path to a more successful year!
Customer Relationship Management: it’s among every real estate agent’s most important duties. So important, in fact, that a CRM should be a mandatory tool for all new agents.
Each person that you deal with in your business, whether a client, a lead or someone in your sphere, brings with them a ton of associated data. Remembering birth dates, a dog’s name, kids’ names, career, hobbies and more helps build rapport, nurtures existing relationships and leads.
The larger your sphere becomes, the harder it gets to remember when you last spoke with someone, what you talked about, what your next move should be to push that person through the funnel.
Agents get this, which is most likely why one of the most commonly asked questions in online real estate agent forums and Facebook groups is “What is the best real estate CRM?”
And the most common answer is “What do you need it to do?”
This is because we don’t all use a CRM the same way. Sure, the overall goal is client relationship management, but agents meet that goal using their preferred metrics.
So, today we offer up a list of some of the most popular 2021 Real estate CRM reviews to help you shop for the best one for you.
As far as 2021 Real estate CRM reviews go, RealtyJuggler checks off most of the boxes.
With 4 out of 5 stars at Google Reviews, a pretty decent ranking from the Better Business Bureau and a 90-day free trial, Realty Juggler may just be the ideal solution for new or struggling agents.
Even after the trial expires, the price is $179 a year, or less than $15 per month. You may spend more than that at Starbucks each month.
According to the company website, RealtyJuggler was created almost 17 years ago by a Washington DC agent and a software engineer. Their sole aim was to come up with a CRM that offered ease of use to the “average agent.”
In fact, their three core principals include:
RealtyJuggler’s CRM is cloud-based, mulit-user friendly and real estate-specific. Features include:

Looking for a team solution but short on cash? You can’t go wrong with the cost of HubSpot’s CRM: 100% FREE.
And, the folks at HubSpot promise that it will remain free.
For this “price,” you’ll “Enjoy unlimited users, data, and up to 1,000,000 contacts with no time limit or expiration date.”
We find the fact that it’s not real estate-specific to be a downside, but one that is easily overlooked considering the “price.”
If you’re looking for more than just contact management, you’ll be happy to know that Wise Agent offers automation solutions, transaction management, newsletters, drip marketing campaigns and “time management tools,” according to the company’s website.
“The software integrates with anything. So, you can easily incorporate Wise Agent with tools and software that you’re currently using,” according to Lars Lofgren at quicksprout.com.
From the reviews we’ve read, Wise Agent’s CRM offering is simple, affordable and reliably delivers the basics. “There’s nothing I don’t like! The system works as intended and is easy to use,” one agent offers up to g2.com.
An agent in a Facebook group claims that “If you are just looking for a very basic CRM that will do most of what you need, Wise Agent cannot be beat.”
Try it free for 14 days or jump right in and purchase a plan. They start at $29 a month or $299 per year, which represents a savings of 14% over the monthly payment plan.
Follow Up Boss is yet another real estate CRM that has raving fans.
“In the past, I would say to new agents that you should be able to get a deal within 6 months. Now with Follow Up Boss, most are getting something under contract within 6 weeks!” Gary Ashton, Ashton Real Estate Group in Nashville.
Aside from a robust CRM, the software offers marketing help, reporting and “200+ lead providers” and “31+ integrations.”
It’s those integrations that are a big factor in many agents’ decision to buy. “I use Follow Up Boss too and love it. It’s so easy to use and connects to Gmail, Mailchimp and much more,” according to one agent in an agent-focused Facebook group.
Check out additional reviews and some screen shots of the software in action at g2.com.
Solo agents will spend $69 per month for the Follow Up Boss CRM. Teams are looking at $499 a month for up to 10 users and larger teams (15 to 30 agents) will pay $1,000 per month.
Try it free for two weeks. See the details online at followupboss.com.
This self-described “Intelligent CRM for the real estate industry” may not be a complete solution for some agents, but for others “…they blow other CRMs out of the water,” according to an agent in a Facebook group.
Lofgren chose Contactually as his choice of the “Best Overall Real Estate CRM.” He especially likes the ease of segmentation, which is critical for laser-targeting your marketing efforts.
Reviewers also appreciate the company’s high level of customer support. “Much better than [that of] similar programs I’ve used in the past,” according to an agent in a Facebook group.
This is a SaaS-based CRM with a “… layer of intelligence over everything,” notes the overview at g2.com.
If you love the product after a 2-week free trial you can purchase the Professional plan at $69 a month or the Accelerator (see the description here) at $119 a month.
Is LionDesk “The only CRM you’ll ever need?” Naturally, the company thinks so but the CRM has a ton of fans to back up their claim.

Buffini & Company’s CRM is among the highest rated by agents. “In LOVE with ReferralMaker. It connects to Facebook, keeps me on track with my clients and prospecting,” notes one agent.
There are lots of tools for both solo agents and teams. In fact, the software is so loaded with features that one agent reviewer complained that some of them “… aren’t needed/it’s too much for some agents to use.”
Buffini’s website is advertising a free 30-day trial and a price of $20 per month. Not sure how long this will last, so if you’re interested in purchasing ReferralMaker, make the move now.
Easy Agent PRO’s real estate website platform, LeadSites, actually comes with a built in CRM which is perfect for small teams. The platform comes equipped with drip campaigns, text/SMS campaigns, lead management, shared content library, deal tracking and more.

EAP alumn Chris Tenerowicz details the CRM in action here in one of his live webinars – Take a look:
We all know the value of staying top-of-mind with past and (hopefully) future clients. The folks at CINC promise to get you there and keep you there.
“Agents using this software typically increase lead generation by up to 30% while decreasing the cost per lead by 20% year over year,” according to Lofgren.
He goes on to claim that CINC software “… generates 3+ million leads per year, which results in 177,000+ homes sold.”
CINC offers several CRMs and Cinc Pro Agent is what you want if you’re a solo agent. Cinc Pro is specifically designed for teams.
Try as we might, we couldn’t find prices on the company website. Nor was there an offering of a free trial.
Because CINC lacks some common CRM features, it is definitely something you want to try before you buy.

The company website claims that Realvolve is the “Residential real estate CRM for teams and serious agents.” Yet, they later state that its CRM has an “emphasis on teams.”
Do with that what you will.

“I think the baby boomers are still going to pick up books in the grocery store but everyone else is looking online first, researching second and then picking up the phone.” This from a very young agent in a thread at Active Rain. Myths like that one about baby boomers abound and it’s useless to try to dispel all of them, especially to younger generations. Suffice it to say, however, 87 percent of younger boomers – adults between the ages of 54 and 64—are regular internet users while nearly 70 percent of older boomers (65 to 72) use the internet,...
