I love my At-A-Glance EXECUTIVE ... I call it My Office in a Book.  I carry it with me everywhere and it works for me. It's quick and easy to change at a moment's notice and there is extra space for each day for Prioritized Activities.  There is a section for Future Planning for 2018, Travel Expenses (itemized) for each day (monthly) and a variety of other things at the back.  I have mine in a leather zipper cover with pockets for STUFF!  Love it!

I am not a real estate agent yet.  I use my Google calendar for appointments, and an iBloom planner for life.  It's a Christian based company that helps remind me to focus on my gratitude list and important relationships that I don't want to neglect, and is also a business planner.

I use a spreadsheet for my task list, appointments, activity log, blog log, projects and mileage log. It is synced to my other computers and smartphone and backed up to flash drive and the cloud.

With a paper planner, there is a risk of loss, flood, or fire, and no backup.

The type-ahead feature pre-fills many columns and it is easy to copy and paste. It is also very easy to search a spreadsheet to find something quickly. 

And there is no cost.

I haven't used a dead tree calendar in decades.  In this day and age, use the electronic one!  Here's why: I input a meeting at 4pm and list the address.  Google knows the traffic to get there and lets me know 15 minutes before I have to leave to arrive on time!  It also shows on Google Maps that I have an appointment there.

You will need to choose the one that performs most reliably with the systems you use. Choosing a scheduler that goes wonky with your Microsoft/google/Samsun/iphone, and your carrier, is not the one to choose.

The problem is, THEY ALL SAY THEY WORK!

I would start with Google Calendar.......if you don't mind Google knowing even more out the secret parts of your life. Microsoft says they are not so snoopy. Live/Outlook/One Calendar is the MS products

As for a day planner, I plan to see what others are using.  :  )
