My favorite tech: Patrick Young

Milwaukee native Patrick Young, a realtor with Keller Williams Realty, relies on a few tech tools to make his life easier, both on and off the job:

Open Table

“Who doesn’t love making a restaurant reservation? Open Table is a mobile app that provides a list of restaurants available within my desired time range. Click, reserve a table. Super efficient.” 

Keller Williams Realty Command

“KW Command is a proprietary CRM program developed by KW to provide agents with a superior client interface app. With a few clicks, I can access my entire real estate world, from client files, deadlines and pipeline management, to the latest marketing strategies and neighborhood insights – everything I need to bring knowledge and efficiency to my client’s table.”  


“Flexmls is the tool used by real estate agents to manage their listings for sellers. It’s also our primary search engine for properties. Knowledge and speed are key, both in winning opportunities and in managing client expectations. Approximately 92% of initial searches by the public are through the obvious search portals. However, those sites may lag behind the real-time data of Flexmls by hours and even days.”

Google Maps’ 3D Globe view

“I love Google Maps for the same reason everyone does, but there is a cool trick I discovered for viewing properties that allows me to fly around a property like a drone. You may be familiar with this on your phone, but on a laptop or PC to do the same, hold down the control button when in 3D satellite mode. You can fly around Disneyland with your kids, historical sites, cool cities, vacation properties, or, as I use it, to scope out a listing from all angles.”
