I come from a deep technology background, so I'm always on the lookout for ways that technology can improve our industry. As a buyer, I wanted accurate and complete information about what homes were available, with lots of quality photos and a virtual tour. As a seller, I wanted statistics: how many people were looking at our listing, how did they find out about us, and so on. As an agent, I want it all!
A sharp, professional-looking website that just works without a lot of hassle, constant maintenance, or needless expense
Statistics! Who's coming to my site? How are they getting there? Am I giving them what they came to find? How can I optimize to bring in more people?
Easy IDX integration that looks good
Dead simple lead generation and nurturing
Workable MLS on my mobile device
Phone calls to find me. Always. If I miss the call, transcribe the voicemail into an email so I can read it.
Electronic signatures everywhere. We're well into the 21st century. Using a pen to carve out a unique pattern of scratches (a/k/a signature) on a paper is archaic, especially if you're just going to stick that in a fax machine.
These are just a few off the top of my head. And yes, all of these are possible today, but are they easy? What technical challenges do you face on a daily basis where you think to yourself, "There's gotta be an easier way?"
