Hi Charlie & JoAnn, This is the group I have the best results with!!!  They are computer savvy, have Bachelors degrees or are skilled workers fresh out of school, have a job and aren't too scared to get what they want.  As my children & spouse indicated, since I'm a "Hip" Realtor (ex-educator), they love to work with me, since I'm also computer savvy and know how to listen and give them results...  ;>))

We call this group the carpal tunnel generation.  They know computers and we have seen stats that 99.8% of these buyers and sellers start their search in the internet and come very prepared and educated.

Kellie, yep you are correct! Today's buyers and sellers are stalking agents online for as much as 18 months before they will feel comfortable enough to do business with an agent.


Kat , yes TEXT, TWEET, FACEBOOK, BLOG IF you're not doing all of the above and you want to tap into one of the most important generations that will be buying in 2010, then you'd better get to it!

Ann Marie, Congratulations on getting great results from this demographic!
