paperless: Paperless Files Webinar-Learn STEP by STEP! - 08/13/13 04:16 AM
I was reviewing a few past articles in Real Estate publications and noticed that they gave great advice on why a real estate professional should go paperless, but now HOW to get started!
I can relate to the frustration some people might be experiencing trying to convert. A lot of information on the topic but no specific steps for those who aren't "geeks."
It took me several years to perfect my virtual transaction management system. I beta-tested a lot of products and wasn't sure what I even wanted or needed!
Peers and co-workers began to ask me about my paperless system … (0 comments)

I've worked in the real estate business now for over 20 years as a co-owner of a brokerage company, trainer, Transaction Coordinator and all around curious cat wondering why we do the things we do.
Please note that I am an extreme efficiency expert. I'm annoyed when it takes me more than 2 clicks to get where I want to be in a software program (Seconds wasted per program, multiplied by 40 transactions per day).
So I was super annoyed last year when suddenly I wasn't able to … (1 comments)

paperless: Do you have problems reading contracts on a computer? - 07/26/13 04:23 AM

 I've have many real estate professionals admit to me that when going paperless they struggle with trying to  comprehend contracts and other documents when reading on a computer screen. They have to print it out and  read it in order to understand it. 
 Believe it or I had the same problem! It's not because I'm dumb or OLD. (OK, maybe it's because I'm an  ancient Coordinator who was used to doing things "old school" way). 
 Like anything else new, you need to re-train the old brain to look at the contracts in a different way. The first  contract I read on … (0 comments)

paperless: Is it OK to store closed files electronically? - 07/25/13 05:25 AM
 It sure is in California! As long as you can retrieve the file for the DRE to review, it's OK!
My hubby and I have spent thousands of dollars storing huge closed files for our real estate brokerage. I'll admit I used to HATE auditing the files before close. They were massively huge with hundreds of pages to review individually and organize. 
Now that we've gone paperless, it's so much easier to audit and store files. 
Once the transaction has closed, I quickly audit the file right on my computer to identify incomplete documents by a coding system that everyone is … (0 comments)
