EDITOR'S NOTE: This post was originally published January 20, 2010 and has been completely updated for accuracy and all the awesome new stuff that FreedomSoft can do!
So, I've been a fan of FreedomSoft for years (as you can see by the 2010 review below). In 2015 my very close friend Rob Swanson bought FreedomSoft from Preston Ely and I was excited to see what he would do with it.
Let's just say, he didn't disappoint.
During that time, Rob and his team REBUILT EVERYTHING from the ground up. FreedomSoft today and FreedomSoft 6 months ago (or 6 years ago) are NOT the same.
Not even close.
They added important features for the lead generation, lead management and analysis side of FreedomSoft (so wholesalers love it even more than ever).
They rebuilt the document and contract generators. They rebuilt the direct mail system to make it SUPER simple.
But they've also added in rehabbing and construction management inside FreedomSoft, so now Rehabbers, Fix & Flip investors, landlords and even builders can use it.
It's not just for wholesalers anymore!!
In the NEW FreedomSoft today:
> Wholesalers are finding and flipping more deals
> Landlords are buying & repairing their rentals easier
> Rehabbers are tracking dozens of projects at once
> Builders are managing large scale new construction
No joke – Rob's rebuilt nearly 70% of FreedomSoft to make it 1,000 times more powerful (actual math is 1003X more powerful but let’s keep it simple.
It’s easier to use and is more user friendly that it’s ever been. And, ALL THAT matters because it helps you run your business more efficiently and make more money!
Here's a peek into some of the new tools Rob's created inside FreedomSoft:
> Lead Central including a 100% built in Voicemail & 2-way SMS messaging system
> RehabbersGPS including a 1-click Repair Cost Estimator (for any house nationwide) <==== This is HUGE!
> CEO Suite including full automation, documents generator, automated file management, a business dashboard and total customization
In my opinion, the best thing about Rob is that he recognizes the real estate investing “framework” and has created ONE SaaS that includes every tool real estate investors need to run their business – regardless of strategy.
Final Word: This software has finally come into its own and proves its value to wholesalers, rehabbers, landlords… with the ability to manage, systematize and automate ANY real estate investing business. Rob is a smart guy with a stellar team giving great onboarding and support. I give it my highest recommendation.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Below is my previous FreedomSoft review 🙂
Freedomsoft, Preston Ely's very cool real estate flipping (wholesaling) software was originally released in 2010 and over the last few years I've watched it get better and better. Take a quick look at this video tour of my personal Freedomsoft account to see all the features. AND see me suck 4,000+ property leads, 1,255 cash buyer leads and 330 private lender leads from Denver County Colorado out of the software in less than 2 minutes!
Here's my Freedomsoft review:
In a nutshell, it's a real estate matchmaking software that anyone can use to make matches between cash buyers of real estate and sellers of real estate. The system makes these matches automatically AND tells you what your commissions and/or assignment fees will be. It does all of your marketing for you and creates killer buyer and seller websites (see mine in the video above).

Yes, yes a thousand times YES!
Let me tell you one of the coolest things about this software is that it now comes with the ability to have up to 15 users. That means my assistant can use it and I can even give an account to my niece in law (? is that a real relative?) Jill who wants to start flipping houses in her spare time.
I hate paper pushing and the push-button contract preparation aspect of FreedomSoft is very cool.
Automated Internet Deal Syndication
FreedomSoft automatically blasts your deal to more than 17 websites plus your social networking pages such as Facebook and Twitter. This, combined with his pre-written autoresponder sequence to your buyers list will ensure that your deals get snapped up fast.
24 Hour Support
I don't know of any other real estate investing software provider that offers real, live 24 hour, 7 day a week support. That's awesome.
The automated due diligence aspect of FreedomSoft is pretty slick. My concern is that it's difficult to automate that since the online comps and market data is typically unreliable and all over the board but… the proof is in the pudding.
I like it when it's a green light “yes” and the software tells me exactly what to offer.
Direct REO Access
This is pretty cool even if you're not wholesaling.
Recommended. Two huge thumbs up.
This program makes money for experienced wholesalers like me and brand new investors like my niece in law Jill. 🙂
