17 BlackBerry real estate apps

Property search, calculators dominate list

The BlackBerry has ranked as the most popular smart phone among real estate professionals, according to a report released this year by the National Association of Realtors’ Center for Realtor Technology.

The report’s results are based on 1,485 responses to a survey the center conducted in January about Realtors’ smart phone use. About 41 percent of respondents said they use a BlackBerry to do business, while 26 percent use an iPhone and 14 percent use a Palm device.

Respondents were most likely to be considering either a BlackBerry or an iPhone for a future smart phone purchase, the report found.
