The day of carrying a bunch of paper to each listing, showing buyers all the background printed materials is long gone for most of us.
The New Tools of the Trade....we pack a laptop with WiFi...replacing the yellow pad. We pack a cell phone with our data securely embedded...our day planner a thing of the past too. Although some still cling to their yellow pads and day planners the fact is there are much easier ways to deal with data.
We carry listings and buyer contact information not in a spiral notebook...or contact card or Rolodex, they are in our data program on the laptop and in our cell phones.
Property previews for an out of town client can be done and photos forwarded at lightning speed. Gone is the day when carrying all your files in the trunk of your care just in case you need one. Today a laptop and small portable printer can dazzle clients and give everything you need at your finger tips.
I wear a Bluetooth remote phone headset. Today a gentleman about my age (sorry to say) stopped me and said...what is that in your ear a hearing aid? I politely said...NO that is my remote phone headset. I didn't dare say my Bluetooth....he would want to check my teeth! "Really", was his response, "what will they come up with next?" He walked across the parking lot shaking his head.
I carry a flash drive with all my listings and virtual tours on it. I carry all my forms on my flash drive as well. Also a little portable printer in my communication bag.
My phone allows me to text, thanks to a Kris Wales post about 8 months ago, I learned from my 15 year old niece the ins's and outs of texting. Kris's daughter taught her. I use it if clients communicate that way...I also can email from my phone and laptop.
What will be the next tools of the trade added to our tool boxes?
