QR codeFirst off, what is a QR code? From wikipedia:

QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) designed to be read by smartphones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, a URL, or other data.

As a Real Estate Agent, you might use a QR code to link to a specific listing, a mobile optimized version of your website, or even a mobile optimized version of your home search.
