What Is Podio?
Podio is a popular task and team management tool used by real estate professionals and home services professionals.

Podio Integration with PropertyRadar Use Case Scenarios
PropertyRadar is an excellent solution for prospecting and lead gen for real estate investors, real estate agents, home services professionals, and more. Keeping your CRM filled with a continuous supply of high-quality leads is easy with the PropertyRadar and Podio integration.
Let’s take a look at some use cases for this powerful integration duo.
Use Case #1: Real Estate Investor
The integration between PropertyRadar and Podio is a powerful one for real estate investors. You can create marketing lists of your ideal customers using criteria that signal a particular type of property would make a good investment, such as:
- Property equity or value
- Absentee owner
- Recent change of ownership
- Death of joint tenant
If you’re a professional real estate investor and absentee owners happens to be one of your target audiences, here’s an example of what that would look like for you with the added criteria:
- Location – Los Angeles, CA
- Absentee Owner - lives in different county than property
- Age – 60y/o+
- Equity – 40%+
- 2,000+ sqft
With 6,941prospects matching the above criteria, you can refine your list by adding additional criteria like lot size, number of beds/baths, includes a swimming pool or not, and more. Once you’ve created your list and sent it to Podio, you’re ready to start your marketing outreach.
Use Case #2: Realtor®
As a realtor, you know keeping a consistent flow of leads coming into your sales systems for you and your team is critical. But spending dozens of hours every month putting together lists of leads isn’t the best use of your time.
Realtors® can create critical marketing lists by using many variables including:
- Geographic farm
- Just listed / just sold
- First time home buyers
- Absentee owners
- Free & clear owners
- Cash buyers
Here’s a peak at one of the most popular QuickLists used by real estate agents and Realtors®, Geographic Farm. Using the predefined criteria, we simply add a location by drawing a perimeter around the market we’re targeting using PropertyRadar’s polygon drawing tool:
You’ll be able to fill your pipeline with high-value leads, then using the ‘dynamic lists’ feature to ensure that new leads are added to Podio whenever they meet the predefined criteria that you set.
Now, with your Dynamic List created of your market of interest, you can automate your multi-channel marketing mix to start turning your list of prospects into a list of hot leads.
Use Case #3: Roofer
For a high-ticket local service like roof replacement, PropertyRadar can completely change how you go about your prospecting. What makes a good lead for a roofing company?
There are some situations that trigger people to invest in a new roof or make them particularly good candidates for outreach. Buying a new home can be a good trigger for investing in a new roof, if the previous owners did not replace it. Conversely, someone who just put their house on the market might need to replace their roof to either increase the value or to simply sell it.
In the case of finding people who just listed their home, you can use a Quick List. You’ll navigate to Quick List > Home Services > Pre-movers as shown below:
In the case above, we’ve selected properties listed within the past 90 days. You can of course change the number of days to suit your needs.
Another trigger that a roofer would find interesting is the amount of equity that a homeowner has in their home. If they have more than 50% equity, they may be more likely to make larger investments. The square footage of the home could be another trigger. The possibilities are numerous.
Or, the square footage of the home. If a home is 2500+ square feet and is a one-story home, there is a high probability that a roof replacement project for that home would be high-dollar. There's simply more roof coverage for the home, which typically means larger projects.
Whether you’re a roofer, solar panel installer, garage door installer, or another type of home services professional, all your customers are already in PropertyRadar waiting to be discovered.
