How Real Estate Agents Can Save Time with Google Forms
Here’s my advice on using Google Forms to save you precious time.
Today, I want to share with everybody a great way to organize your workload. I was watching my husband try and navigate another multiple-offer situation, and I noticed how much of his time was spent simply organizing data. With this tip, you can set up your data to organize itself on the front end, saving you a ton of precious time.
The easiest way I’ve found to organize my clients’ data is to use Google Forms. By heading over to forms.google.com, you can use your Google account to gain access to great organizing software. Once there, you can create a Google Form to keep track of all your clients’ data. You can keep track of who is looking at which property, different offer prices, closing dates, and anything else. If you share this form with your agents, everyone on your team will be able to update the data and use it accordingly.
“At the end of the day, this tool saves you and your agents time while adding value for your clients.”
One of the great things about this software is that you can link it to a Google Sheet. This means that when your agents fill out information in the Google Form, it will automatically be organized into the spreadsheet. This will save you an immense amount of time. In my example in the video above, it took maybe 30 seconds to set up a Google Form and link it to a spreadsheet. Compared to the hours my husband spent inputting data into a spreadsheet manually, it’s a no-brainer.
In fact, my husband and I set up a Google Form linked to a spreadsheet for his multiple-offer situation. The spreadsheet this creates is a great asset for our clients, and they can refresh the page and get live updates on how their offers are coming along. At the end of the day, this tool saves you and your agents time while adding value for your clients. It’s a win-win situation.

Thank you so much for a great tip and hack… this is awesome.
This is awesome Tammi!! What a great idea! How do you share this with agents that will be submitting an offer and get them to complete it?
What a great idea! I did create something like this on google sheets, however, I did not know about linking a form to the sheet!!! Brilliant!!! Now, I don’t have to sit there and write each offer in. Love it, thank you so much for sharing!
