2. Real Estate by Zillow

One of our top favorites hands down has to be Zillow! Hand-draw your desired search region, filter by agent or by owner listing, and determine if your favorite listing is a new listing or even a foreclosure. All this and real-time email notifications as new listings pop up makes Zillow perfect for those looking to move quickly.

3. ShowingTime

ShowingTime gives you the control of showings and lets you determine the best times for your schedule. This system verifies that the agent is licensed and in good standing, making it the most secure showing in Georgia and allows you to approve showings via your phone, email, or text message.

4. Updater

Updater is a timesaving moving tool that provides support in completing moving-related tasks including: forwarding mail with the USPS, updating over 15,000 accounts and records, connecting utilities and digital services, finding reputable moving companies, updating licenses with the DMV, and sending digital moving announcements.


5. ThumbTack

Thumbtack is an app that delivers free, customized quotes from the best local handymen, photographers, guitar teachers, and more. From house painting to personal training, ThumbTack brings you the right pros for every project on your list.

6. Houzz

Houzz is an interior design app that shows you the most modern, trendy home designs. It also lets you see what your house could look like with upgrades and helps you visualize the difference that investing into home improvements can make.
