I’ve never heard a broker, agent or even a CEO brag about not understanding their business financials. Yet I have heard many share they don’t really understand their important technology. A few even admit, usually in private, they don’t totally trust their technology staff and vendors. Wow. In this day, agents, brokers, and companies are at greater risk from a major technology failure than embezzlement. Yet often the focus, perhaps out of habit alone, is mainly on financial processes while remaining unsure or uninterested in much of the business’s technology and team. Real estate agents and loan officers can be just as guilty of (3 comments)
I think it is safe to say that the real estate industry is at crossroads. Big changes have taken place. More changes are coming, even if there is uncertainty of exactly what those new changes will be.

In many organizations, you find these experts in every corner, including technology, marketing, sales, training, and legal. In real estate, you find them among the sellers, buyers, brokers, attorneys, and just about every type of service provider. The deadly experts use BIG WORDS to intimidate, bully, disgrace, protest, and even brag. Even someone that has comparable expertise may be casually dismissed by these deadly experts. (For if they admit that someone else may be right it damages their power and self-esteem.) They (6 comments)
