Brokermint is suited for a small brokerage or a franchise, maybe 200 agents or less because it has great functionality and simple agent screens, i.e. dashboard. Especially simple teams or solo agents will benefit from it, because they are able to navigate smoothly and you can pick up the functions very quickly, without much tech knowledge. Over 200 agents, it would need to be more robust and integrate transaction management, accounting, commission tracking, agent team tracking, percentage of cap, etc. The more detailed software, the less likely agents are going to use it correctly, i.e. more employee support and troubleshooting. Agents are not very patient and they don't like to have any obstacles when they learn how to do anything. Brokers have to consider the caliber of agents they attract.

Yardi Voyager is well suited for any management company in the multifamily or commercial space and is a worthwhile competitor to other options in the space - MRI Software, Realpage, Resite, etc. For those med-large enterprises that value an intuitive and straightforward accounting and leasing system, and also work with other vendors that need to integrate with their ERP system, this is a great option. There is a large ramp-up time, requiring many company resources, and licensing is quite expensive, so this solution may not be for those companies with a small budget or personnel resources.
Read full review Pros Very Simple 4 step process when creating a new transaction Easy capture of documents and communications (email and text) Smooth audit flow - Love auditing as the transaction progresses so I can coach agents Commission Income calculation and tracking Multiple ways of backing up closed transactions Read full review Yardi Property Management particularly excels at creating a system where it is easy to leave feedback for property managers because the data is available up front. Yardi is also a useful tool at integrating property management across the entire platform. It can be used for asset management as well even for the most nitty gritty details. It is also convenient to edit expenses inputted by the accounting department and managing those expenses forward for future budgeting. Read full review Cons A better selection of statuses A true white label Faster support Read full review In my experience there's a fairly steep learning curve for a new user to be able to navigate the system While there's diverse functionality, many items seem buried in menus or obscure places, particularly the first time you're trying to find them Getting used to the refresh functionality in some parts of the system can be challenging if you're used to a system that automatically updates when new filters are applied Read full review Likelihood to Renew
We have invested 5 years of setup, implementation and training on Voyager. It's doing a very good job for us and I feel we've only scratched the surface of its capabilities. Yardi support has been very responsive with very little down time. The training materials are great from Client Central

I'm coming from the perspective of a fairly tech-adept person, so I didn't find the system too hard to learn. That said, I do feel some of the buried menus and the system's own internal search feature could use some improvement, but I have that feeling about the vast majority of CRMs I've ever used. There may be a little bit of a struggle to onboard/train up someone who isn't used to this sort of system, but once up and going it should be smooth sailing.

I would say that our admin would give this a pretty high setting. Anytime there are issues, they are quick to contact Brokermint and get fixes out to us as soon as possible, but I have not personally had any issues that haven't been fixable on my own.

The local office is very knowledgeable, however recently it seems that Yardi has begun to route calls offshore and the knowledge base there does not seem to be as strong as the USA based support centers. All customizations are done by offshore personnel, which presents issues in terms of the language barrier and time zone differences.

If you are converting from another system, grouping your properties by subsidy type seemed to help us. We were able to focus on a half dozen properties at a time, rather than the entire portfolio.

Brokermint is best for smaller brokerages which are growing their full-time staff. It is simple, easy to use, less frustrating than most, and will please agents because the interface is logical and well thought out.
is more for very large brokerages, which need algorithmic multi-phasic functions. Great for large teams, with multiple types of agents, support staff, and administrators.

Onesite was broken, a lot. Yardi Voyager has been a much more stable platform. We have been operational for 3 years now and I cannot say that we have had any software downtime in 3 Years. But with Onesite, it was common to be down at least once a month for something that was not working correctly.
Read full review Return on Investment Helps us better organize as agents Helps with audits Helps with check listing everything Sometimes hard to know what to do; slight learning curve Read full review We initially moved to Yardi from paper ledgers. This had a tremendous time-saving effect. Product was confusing and required training for some of our older staff members. Clients that used the product were initially hesitant to pay for the added cost, but with time were able to see the benefit to their software. Read full review ScreenShots
