EXIT Realty is proud to have two exceptional individuals named as finalists for the prestigious REALTOR® Technology Spotlight Award to be presented at the National Association of REALTORS® Conference & Expo this November in San Diego.
Jeff Lobb, EXIT Realty Corp. International's Technology Specialist has been a REALTOR® for over 21 years and has more than 10 years experience in the internet and technology fields both with Fortune 500® companies and startup ventures. From a unique position of having been a real estate sales representative and EXIT Realty franchisee, Jeff travels across North America teaching EXIT Associates the skills they need to get ahead in the ever-changing world of real estate technology. "It's an absolute honor being nominated for the 2009 REALTOR® Technology Spotlight Award," commented Lobb. "In our changing real estate landscape, technology is a driving force in the way we communicate and the way our business is being done. I look forward to the challenges of 2010 and the new technologies that drive it." Trecia Cooke, a real estate agent with EXIT Realty Group in Tomball, Texas, received several nominations from her colleagues who describe her as a "technology guru and more" and appreciate the "tremendous impact" she has had on the office. "I am so honored to receive this nomination," said Cooke. "I can't believe I am nominated with Jeff Lobb! He is so fantastic!" "I am honored to work with such talented people," said Tami Bonnell, President of the US Organization of EXIT Realty Corp. International. "The agents who actually increased their business during the economic downturn did so through the use of technology and by building relationships - Jeff and Trecia are experts at both." The Center for REALTOR® Technology Web Log describes the award as "focused at leading edge REALTORS® and/or their support staff who make them shine in the field. Outside of recognizing these industry innovators, this award is also intended to show other members and their IT staff what others are doing, and get them thinking of creative ways to make technology work for them."
Lobb and Cooke were both finalists in the Advocate Category, described as, "The REALTOR® and Staff members who go above and beyond their call of duty to reach out and engage people with the information and knowledge they have about technology. These are the individuals that are making changes in the industry one person at a time."
