QuickBooks is an inexpensive (yet powerful) piece of software that makes this task easier to do. To accomplish all this with the least amount of effort, Agents must learn how to approach this application, how to set it up, and how to use it.  When used correctly, this application will save you a huge amount of time and keep you out of trouble.  This course will teach a real estate agent how to use it for their business.
