Real Estate Contact/Project Manager

Avg Bid (USD)
Project Budget (USD)
$300 - $1000

Project Description:
This is a resdiential real estate contact/project manager software for the windows platform in There are two aspects to this project...a desktop and an online version. The current bid is for the desktop version only. I'd like an MS Outlook 2003 like interface. There are many .NET components out there that can speed up development. Two of my favorites are Janus components and Developer Express Windows Form Components. It would be great if you have one of these and know how to use them as it could reduce development time radically. However if you want to do things from scratch, that is fine. For developmnet environment I prefer Visual Studio.NET 2003 and the code as mentioned above, vb.NET. The following is a description of what I need.

If you are not familiar with real estate, please do not bid on this project.
If you need additional information, please let me know exactly what you need. Thank you!
