Technology Saves The Day!
 
 
SentriSmart App
 
 
When I realize my SentriCard is missing, I call support system and they told me about SentriSmart.
Late picking up my buyers, I download the app but did not have time to test it.
Luckily my buyer brought her college daughter so I  handed her my iPad and said figure this out.
 
To kill a little time at the first home, we sent Mom to check out the lawn to see if it would accommodate a pool.
 
Within minutes the lockbox was opened with the iPad.
Yeah!
Success!

Happy Birthday To You Happy Birthday Cheryl Ritchie  
 

 
 
Please help me wish Cheryl Ritchie a Happy Birthday.  Even though Cheryl is a very busy Southern Maryland Realtor®, it is amazing how she still finds time to learn and share new technology with all of us. Check out Cheryl's  iPad Group and let her know if there is an app that she might not have. Being THE iPad App Hoarder...I doubt it. Cheryl has been so so generous sharing all the latest and greatest iPad applications. Please take a moment to wish Cheryl a Happy Birthday.

 Another Fix For iPad Users ..
Thank You Active Rain
 
Do you remember the    problem when responding to comments on the iPad? 
 
When commenting on the iPad you had to use 

 in order to make spaces between comments.

 
Tonight while on my treadmill responding to the various comments on my blog, I used the
 
between each of my comments to make spaces.
 
 
 
What a pleasant surprise to learn that we no longer need to add
  
to make a space.  
If you don't know what this is about..not to worry.

Do You Know How To Make Symbols?
® ©
We need to make various symbols like  Realtor ® or Copyright ©
or tonight's temperature going down to 20°
 
Have you seen this Special Character Chart?
 

Now we no longer have to remember things like ALT 0174.
 
Here's how to get these symbols on ActiveRain.
Go to INSERT
Go to  Ω Special Character
Choose your symbol and you are done!
Note:
This also works on the iPad!

Healthy Way To Multi-Task
 While reading Marnie Matarese's post titled "Yes I am Standing At My Desk"  I got an Ah Ha moment. Marnie had a treadmill desk...what a great idea!
 I dialed Marnie's number and left a message thanking her for the post. Within the hour my call was returned.   I placed my iPad on a lucite book holder and was able to chat the entire time while walking on the treadmill.  
 

When we finished our conversation, I turned the iPad on and googled  treadmill desks.
Wait...I don't need a desk...just the iPad and the treadmill.
Thanks Marnie for the inspiration.

 How To Respond To Comments  On The iPad
This iPad Tip Makes Comments Easier To Read 
 
 


(produces a line break in text)
 This tip is for iPad users who like to repond to comments on ActiveRain posts.
 
The problem:
Multiple comment responses all run together
  When replying to multiple comments, you may find that they all run together. When typing we are used to hitting the return or enter key to make our space for the next comment. This does not work on the iPad.
The solution:

Photos  Made Easy On My iPad
 
 This month's contest   Your Best TECHO Secrets - that make your Personal and Professional Life Easier!  is one I am looking forward to all the entries.   My best techo secret was the one I wrote about last month... Good Things Come In Small Packages  I don't leave home without my camera or this cute little tool. Since it is so small and could be easily lost, I  wrote my name and number on the connector and it fits nicely in my little camera pouch.  
My preference is taking photos with a camera not with the iPad or iPhone.  This tiny device … (20 comments)

 The First Question to Ask The Ambulance Driver
Does this ambulance have an electrical plug?

It was a rainy Thursday afternoon when a vehicle sped through the red light and did not make the turn. Instead it came right at me and like bolts of thunder it hit. I was dazed, pain in my ankle and knee. When the paramedics arrived they took me on to the stretcher and into the ambulance. I made them stop for a second to get a glimpse and a photo of the front of   my cute little car.
The first question I asked:
''Does this ambulance have an electric plug?''
They said this emergency … (17 comments)

What Color Is Your Stylus?
Another gadget for my iPad and iPhone.
Wonderful daughter, Erica, bought a red stylus and let me try it. I asked if it came in more colors. And it does... black, purple, silver, green and blue. Erica's thought the red would be easier to keep track of.  I liked it so much that she graciously gifted it to me. (After a bit of 'please can I have it'?)
 

 Within one day...first time out of the house...darn.. I lost it!
Today I purchased two, one to replace mine and one for Erica. She likes the purple one. This time I will not be losing it. … (15 comments)

Apps And Peanuts
Are For Cheryl But Not For Me.
 
 
 
 
 Cheryl Ritchie, a successful listing agent in Southern Maryland, consumes apps like others consume peanuts...she just doesn't stop.  Cheryl is  a pro with anything having to do with the iPad. Check out her group iPAD Realtor Apps
  It's difficult to find an app that she is not aware of.  If she doesn't know it today, you can be certain she will be an expert within 24 hours.
Apps and Peanuts are for Cheryl but not for me.

Not Perfect But Another Work Around 
 
I really wanted a photo for a blog but did not have access to my PC or my camera cord. The photo was taken with my camera. Thought there was no way to transfer it right now.   And then an Ah Ha  moment. Turned the camera on..used the iPad and took a picture of the camera.

 Getting the most out of technology or the lack of it.
 
So far it has been eight days that I have not turned on a computer and have not used a copy machine but I have managed to  
make appointments, show properties, go on listing appointments, take listings, input and make changes in the MLS,
attend home inspections, meet appraisers, write, negotiate and ratify 
a contract, reblog, host my radio show and continue to write a daily blog. I have been able to get the most out of technology or the lack of it. 
 
How?

A Few ''After" Photos From Gardenview
It has been a year since I sold this Stevenson Rancher.
And this weekend we were honored with an invitation to visit this very special home. Our hosts were so gracious showing off the house, serving delicious food and entertaining by the pool. I was so proud of all the changes made to this contemporary rancher. We had a grand time.
Here are just a few photos and you know I will be back with more.
   

 I love the new mailbox and front door!

If I could only pick one ...Indispensable..I Can't Live Without...best tool!  There is an ActiveRain Contest  and it deals with technology. My first post back in 2006 was about technology.   That post is a bit outdated. A pen and paper is all you need to list and sell a house...but our technology tools sure make things a lot easier.                                      
What could I not live without in my business?
I could name quite a few but this contest is asking for one... not an easy task. At … (25 comments)
