Presenting Effortlessly: Keynote Remote

January 10, 2013

When it comes to winning listings – presentation matters. There are countless stories about agents winning or losing listings based solely on their listing presentation – and in a tech-savvy marketing like the Bay Area you have to bring your A game. We know it’s not just a gimmick to use an iPad at a listing presentation, it works. With the ability to make dynamic presentations on an iPad, you can showcase your professionalism, while making a visually appealing experience. That’s why here at Alain Pinel Realtors, we introduced a comprehensive, APR-branded, and customizable iPad CMA tool for our agents back in 2011!

Did you know there is an app where you can control your keynote presentation from your iPhone? It’s fantastic and it’s called Keynote Remote. With Keynote remote, you no longer have to by physically touching the iPad as you present – you can just set it up in a stand or let your potential sellers hold it. You can walk around the room! At a price of $0.99, you can completely control what is being displayed on your iPad – from your iPhone. While the iPad is mobile, this brings your presentation to the next level.
One of the greatest features about the Keynote Remote is the ability for your “iPhone remote” to display notes about your slides. So – you can be looking at the slide and your notes on your iPhone – while the iPad just displays the slide. This is a great tool to use so that you don’t forget to mention important details as you go through your presentation. And with a little bit of tact – your audience won’t even know you have notes. If you’re already using an iPad in your listing presentation, and you own an iPhone, this is a must have app.

APR made headlines in 2011 for being the first brokerage to offer an iPad Comparative Market Analysis (CMA), a complete and automated listing presentation in a mobile format.
