I was wondering if it is ok to just create a new email account using gmail instead of something official I have to pay for? If I get up and doing ok and want to switch will it be a headache?

Also does anyone use iHouse or just godaddy or something less expensive that works just as well?

Just my two cents but I would highly recommend a Gmail account. Use this for your advertising, business cards,etc. You never know when you may change companies and you could miss out if you use a company one.

Go to and pick an easy real estate-related as your email. Mine is

GoDaddy is very inexpensive. You can also buy your name:

You want people to remember you.

To add to Barb's counsel, if you plan to do REO work, resist the urge to get a domain like this: People will remember you, but for all the wrong reasons. laugh

By all means get a business only email address instead of something that you have used forever for personal use. As soon as you put that business email out for public record just get ready to delete a hundred or so spam emails a day from somebody trying to sell you a "marketing system" or some other junk.

I've had my email address and domain registered for about 18 years and been with 3 different agencies and no email interruptions during agency switch.

I also have 2 free Outlook accounts that I use for forum registration and online purchases.

I have had an IHouse website for over 15 years and my domains are registered through GoDaddy.
Several years back IHouse had issues with their servers being down and it wasn't a huge problem that my website wasn't available but email wouldn't work either for almost 2 days. Google is my email host now and zero server problems.

Use a gmail account for business expenses and such, but use a custom hosted email with your name for your business itself on all marketing.

Say your broker offers you a website, you could have your domain forwarded to the website and if you ever switched companies you then just forward the domain to a new website or just create a website out of the domain you have. That way your domain/email is always the same.
