Yes, I do use it. I think, i picked that visual from one of the RE seminars. Just divide it to Future( sellers and buyers that you are working with, warm and hot), Now( in Escrow and projected closing day), and Closed( write who and date of COE). If your board is large, use lower part to add your to do( like farming dates, new fliers for OH, even blog ideas, etc.) Use different markers to underline more urgent activities.

No boards for me.  A simple checklist on a piece of paper in the front of the file.  One for listings and one for escrows.

Pre-qual, copy of EMD, disclosures signed, various reports, repair requests, escrow papers in.  Dates escrow opened, each contingency period expires, COE, appraisal date.

I no longer use a board but a spread sheet - it depends on the purpose of the board as to what columns I would use

Buyer name, agent name, offer date, closing date, asking price, selling price come to mind
