The Smart Phone…Greatest Technological Invention Ever!
I am a Realtor in the Redlands/ Loma Linda/ Highland CA area. It is a large area of San Bernardino County and has many homes for sale and has many serious buyers looking to buy daily. Since I am always going to appointments and showing properties, I need to be extremely mobile to conduct business efficiently.
I contemplated over which piece of equipment or a particular website was the most import to me. I have so many sites I use on the computer that make me extremely mobile like Relay, Dot Loop, Zip Forms, Google or even my KW email. I have EchoSign at my fingertips to get contracts signed and can make PDF documents without having to print and scan them as before. I can print to mobile printers and not have to drive 25 miles to get back to our office. I have scanners which copy, scan and fax. I have computers that are stationary and laptops I carry with me. I adore my iPad and was thinking this was the equipment but process of elimination, I decided my smart phone was the best invention ever.
I used to be stuck at my desk afraid I would miss an email. Of course, I had a cell phone so I received calls if I wasn’t in a dead zone but how many times did the phone not ring or drop the call when we tried to answer it. This seemed to happen over and over and over again. It is very frustrating for everyone when you cannot complete your calls.
Then I got “Smart” and bought a smart phone about 3 years ago and my life opened up and changed for the best. I could now attend seminars and receive emails while I was sitting there. I would put my phone on silent mode and I could receive and send text messages too. Plus it did not disturb anyone like the ringers on our phones did. This opened up a new world for me. I could finally get away from my desk and still communicate with other professionals and my clients. What I didn’t realize at the time was that this was just a crude phone and the newer ones would be so much better.
I recently bought a new Smart Phone and I am in love. Yes, this is the greatest invention ever. I can open and view all my email accounts, sent tweets and post onto Facebook, take great pictures and send them by email or text immediately to clients, friends, or colleagues. I can show off my pictures when someone asks as they are at my fingertips. I can take a quick picture if I need to send it or just to save it as a reminder. If I need an address, phone number or email; it is right there in my phone so I don’t have to call someone and ask for it.
The Smart Phone has given me so much freedom and I have so many apps at my finger tips to make my life and career run smoothly. I can attend educational seminars or even slip away for a few hours to go shopping, have a manicure or a dental appointment but still have a tight control over my business as I am my own CEO. I am a happy Realtor and so much more independent now. I am just wondering what the new smart phones will be like in the next few years. Life will just get better and better and we will get smarter and smarter.Ring….Ring.
