What are your opinions about the new iPad Pro?

  • We think the iPad Pro is way too big for use on a buyer tour, though it would work in a listing appointment.


Why does the address link in Evernote not work after the first address on that tour?

  • Firstly, please remember that address hyperlinks are only created while using Evernote on your iPad or iPhone.
  • Second, while the note is in editing mode, it will not create hyperlinks. Type in the addresses, go into a different note, then navigate back to your property tour note. You will see that the hyperlinks have been created. Refer to our Evernote for Real Estate Field Manual for more instructions on this.


Is there a good app that calculates buyer's closing costs?

  • No, because closing costs are different for every lender, state, and brokerage.


Have others had issues with hotspot in connection with iPad?

  • You can use a hotspot if your iPad does not have data or is not on WiFi.

  • If you're having issues with your hotspot connect, we recommend that you contact your service provider.
