Technology is Moving Fast
When I first got in real estate we have very few techie tools. We used a typewriter to write contracts and if away from the office we carried pads of contract forms and carbon paper.
Cell phones were not common nor affordable therefore we carried change to stop at phone booths to make appointments for showing. A few years later the pager came along and we loved that.
Take this little quiz and see if you know the order these came to be.

Handheld Mobile Phone
Faxes were used and we were mesmerized by the technology of the transmission onto the paper. I didn't start using a computer until the late 90's and boy was it slow.
There have been so many technological changes and improvements over the years. Most have made the real estate business easier to conduct our business. They have also made it more complicated by constantly changing and improving.
