Progressive Web Apps

Hello All,

Let's talk Progressive Web Apps!

Progressive Web Apps are applications that work across platforms through the web. They are more interactive than typical websites but not tied down to single platform like a standard application. They literally are the best of both worlds and well, real estate professionals have a few reasons to use them. So, let's discuss them:


Branding is a great reason to use Progressive Web Apps. Because they are more interactive than regular websites, you can create better experiences with potential clients. There is research being conducted on how much more effective Progressive Web Apps are at lead capturing than a standard website and in real estate, leads are everything!


Listings, on or off the MLS, can be better interacted with by prospective buyers and renters in Progressive Web Apps than on typical websites. While typical websites have come a long with with virtual tours and Matterport 3D, Progressive Web Apps can take that a step further by creating a more personalized experience.


Progressive Web Apps are a great way to relay information about Current Market Trends to past, present, and future clients. You have more freedom for people to personalize the data they want to see in a Progressive Web App than you do on a typical website. People may have various reasons for wanting Current Market Trend data whether they want to buy, sell, or lease a property.

You also may have a combination of the above reasons or a reason I did not mention on here as to why Progressive Apps can help your real estate business.

Now how to make a Progressive Web App?

There are various places on the web to do that, but since I have not used any one of them I will not recommend them here. You can search on the web because all of them have various levels of pricing and what services they provide in those levels of pricing. Some create a mobile app along with the Progressive Web App. There are various solutions out there and it is best that you take time to research the options out there and do which one is best for you should you choose to go in the Progressive Web App direction for your real estate business.

Best of all, Progressive Web Apps work on Chrome OS!

Thanks for reading!

Until next time,

Long Time No Update.. so let's talk AMD and Zillow

 Hey All! I know it's been quite a long time since I posted so I just wanted to check in and apologize for not posting in what seems like forever. There is not a lot of news on the Chrome OS front except for one major thing... AMD Ryzen Chromebooks are on the way! I personally prefer AMD processors to Intel processors and AMD's Ryzen processors are the cream of the crop. My Windows laptop (that I hardly use anymore because of how much I prefer using Chrome OS) has an AMD Ryzen 5 processor in it for example. Lenovo and HP have already announced Chromebooks with AMD Ryzen processors on the way and AMD has said that Acer and Asus will also be announcing such devices in the near future. According to benchmarks, the AMD Ryzen processors outperform Intel Core processors, so this is very exciting for us real estate professionals who want better performance in the devices we use to conduct our business. I feel very excited with these developments regarding AMD... Unfortunately I can

A new gem from HP

Hello All, HP has been on a roll lately, now coming out with a new flagship consumer Chromebook, the Chromebook x360 14c. There will be multiple variants of this Chromebook and it will be available both directly from HP and from Best Buy. At minimum, you get a Pentium 6405u processor with 4 GB of RAM and at the high end you get an Intel 10th Gen i5 with 8 GB of RAM. I am not too sure about hard drive specifications but the good news is that it does come with all the necessary ports including a card reader! It is also USI Pen compatible for those who like an e-signature to look like a wet signature. This is a 14" convertible machine with a touchscreen which should be the right mix of business and pleasure for most real estate professionals. By all accounts, the lowest spec Pentium model will start at $499 once it becomes available. I am personally very interested in this one and I may very well get one myself, though I've probably said that before on here and haven

It's Been Months

 Hello All, It's been months since I've written anything on here so I just wanted to check back in. The world of Chrome OS is in a waiting pattern while new technology is slowly churning out onto the market although there are a couple small, but key, developments I want to briefly touch on. First, awhile ago I wrote about Progressive Web Applications on here. Well, at Google I/O (Google's big developer summit for those who don't know) which is happening in a little over a week, they are doing a whole thing about making Progressive Web Applications more native to Chrome OS. This can be a boon for realtors and landlords alike. Imaging having the ability for someone to click on your icon on their home screen to inquire about a property or to pay rent or to put in for a maintenance repair, or anything of that sort without having to open a browser. That is what we are talking about here. This could be a major breakthrough in the real estate space if people utilize it properl
