Helping business owners do more on the go.
Running a real estate agency is a nonstop job. Google Pixel helps owner Bryan Jacobs stay connected and on schedule all day long.

Finding dream homes for his clients has Bryan Jacobs on the road – and on his phone – all day long.

As the Principal Partner of RealSmart Properties, Jacobs’ job is to meet buyers wherever and whenever they like, learn about their hopes and needs, and check out properties that his firm might represent for sellers. Often, he covers the entire San Francisco Bay Area within a day. 

To stay connected and on schedule, he relies on his Google Pixel and Google Pixel Watch. With Pixel 7 Pro, he’s able to take stunning photos of properties and make crystal clear calls all day long without worrying about his battery running low.1 And his watch gives him hands-free access to his calendar, so he never misses a meeting.

“Talking, texting, and emailing is my full-time work,” says Jacobs. “It’s crucial that everything works seamlessly and integrates with my other software, so I can access information quickly and easily.”

In the car, his Pixel Watch lets him check notifications and answer texts without taking his eyes off the road. And if Jacobs is at a loud construction site or a crowded restaurant, he simply puts in his Pixel Buds Pro.

“I take a lot of calls with clients and can’t always be in a quiet place,” says Jacobs. “My Pixel Buds Pro allow me to take calls knowing that I’ll be able to hear and be heard much better, no matter the setting.”

Bryan Jacobs, RealSmart Properties "With Pixel in our pockets, we’re capable of doing more to help our clients navigate these life-changing experiences."Built for long days

When Jacobs is away from a charger for long periods of time, meeting with clients and touring properties, he doesn’t worry about whether Pixel 7 Pro will be able to last through all the calls he needs to make. With all-day batteries, Pixel devices are built to keep up. Pixel 7 Pro’s battery lasts up to three days, and with fast charging, it gets to 50% in as little as 30 minutes.2,3 To extend the battery life further, Jacobs uses Extreme Battery Saver, which turns off apps you use less often and cuts back on background app activity. So whether you’re at client meetings or doing deliveries for your customers, Pixel will help you stay connected.

Picture perfect

Pixel’s camera is popular with photographers all around the world, but it can also help businesses attract customers through images of their products and services. Jacobs relies on the ultrawide camera on Pixel 7 Pro to take photos of the properties he visits, and Photo Sphere mode lets him create immersive, 360-degree photographs, helping clients better envision living there. 

If Jacobs is visiting a property at night, or if the lights aren’t turned on, he doesn’t have to worry. With Night Sight, he can capture highly detailed photos in low light, without using flash. “We take tons of pictures of the properties we sell with the Pixel 7 Pro’s camera and they’re always crystal clear – even in low light,” Jacobs says.

And the editing tools take the images to the next level, with Magic Eraser helping by removing objects that distract from a home’s inviting warmth.4 “The quality and resolution delivered right out of the gates is suitable to use for marketing materials,” says Jacobs.

A tool for the whole team

Pixel is built to work with all your favorite Google apps, so you can get started as soon as you take your device out of the box. It’s also made to work seamlessly with other Pixel devices – with Fast Pair, you can quickly connect your Pixel Watch or Pixel Buds to your Pixel phone just by holding them near each other.5

Since he already used Gmail and Google Drive, Jacobs was familiar with Google apps, and switching to Pixel was a snap. In just a few minutes, he was able to pair his new Buds to his Pixel and set up his existing Google accounts. “The switching experience was fast and easy, and less scary than I expected,” Jacobs says. Businesses of any size can easily roll out Pixel to teams of employees all at once with zero-touch enrollment so the devices are ready to be used right away.6

“With Pixel in our pockets, we’re capable of doing more to help our clients navigate these life-changing experiences,” Jacobs says. “It’s the perfect tool for our multi-talented, collaborative team.”

  1. Not available on VOIP calls. Call quality depends on environment, carrier network conditions, and many other factors. Actual results may vary.

  2. For “over 24 hours”: Estimated battery life based on testing using a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of other features. Average battery life during testing was approximately 31 hours. Battery testing conducted on a major carrier network. For “Up to 72 hours”: Estimated battery life based on testing using a median Pixel user battery usage profile across a mix of talk, data, standby, and use of limited other features that are default in Extreme Battery Saver mode (which disables various features including 5G connectivity). Battery testing conducted on a major carrier network. For both claims: Battery testing conducted in California in mid 2022 on pre-production hardware and software using default settings, except that, for the “up to 72 hours” claim only, Extreme Battery Saver mode was enabled. Battery life depends upon many factors and usage of certain features will decrease battery life. Actual battery life may be lower.

  3. Charging speed based upon testing with device batteries drained to 1% and charged with Google 30W USB-C® Charger. Charging testing conducted by Google in mid-2022 on pre-production hardware and software using default settings with the device powered on. Charging speed depends upon many factors including usage during charging, battery age, and ambient temperature. Actual charging speed may be slower.

  4. Requires Google Photos app. May not work on all image elements.

  5. Fast Pair for Google Pixel Watch requires location enabled.
