What software should I use?

I am starting a small tenant rep company and I want a simple way to track the lease a closed and have the ability to follow up if the lease was renewed. Is there an inexpensive software or site that I can do this on?

Why not build your own tracking worksheet? It is not difficult with Excel. I have found that this is the best way to capture contact work lists that required periodic updating.
Good Luck Arash....

yep. Excel. create a model with the tenant/contact info and their basic lease terms. it's the simplest and cheapest.

Arash: I've had good luck using REA to track my tenant-rep completed deals and prospects. You can input the lease terms including start/end dates, payment, sqft, etc. and set reminders for yourself to check back. It also works great for logging your interaction with prospects and taking notes.
REA is pricey though, I think $695 for a stand-alone copy. You can get many of the same features through ACT! which is a plug-in to Microsoft Outlook.
Both of these are excelent solutions, but may be overkill if you're only managing a few clients - in which case a simple Excel spreadsheet may be the answer. Once you get above 100 records though, it's time to invest in one of the big boys. Good luck.
