Cell Phones. You can't talk about real estate without noticing that reealtors are notoriously on their cell phones. As cell phones have evolved with the business, I find that we use our cell phones more and more everyday. These new phones seem to break a lot easier than former phones did, don't you agree?
It seems that while cell phones are capable of doing much more these days, and yes it is nice to get emails on your phone, the phones come up with all sorts of new problems as well! The phones randomly shut off, randomly make strange noises, freeze up...you name it! Battery life seems to be getting shorter with each new phone, and they want to make you purchase extended life batteries or all sorts of chargers, so you can charge them wherever. These companies are being smart when it comes to products, but it really hurts Realtors as the consumers!
Considering we've been their customers since the time of car phones and bag phones, you would think they do more for realtors! I mean, at least Verizon offers some discount to Keller Williams employees, but still, there is just so much business out there from Realtors! Almost every single one of us has the unlimited plans from whatever company we use. Maybe we should just agree within the NAR to all use the same provider, that way all calls to all other Realtors are free! But that probably isn't neccesary since we all pay for the unlimited plans anyway.
What do you think? What's the best way to approach the cell phone game in real estate?
