At the end of the year I try to look at what I'm doing in my business and figure out if there's a better, easier, more effective way. With technology being such a large part of real estate these days, my computer and other devices get some serious attention.
I know that I could not be as effective as I am – as a solo agent – without all my tech tools, but especially my Treo. The question is, am I getting everything out of it I can? I'm not sure, but on December 3 I'll find out.
That's the day I'm co-sponsoring a PDA and Smartphone Training session at the Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors office. Dick Betts, an NAR certified e-PRO trainer is going to present two sessions that will help us get the most from these handy gadgets. Even if you don't yet own one, this is a day that will help you decide whether it's right for you. The information applies to devices with either Palm or Windows operating systems, and covers everything from the basics to the bells and whistles.
In the morning, Dick will cover using a Smartphone to help organize and manage your business (and life!). During the afternoon, we'll learn how to turn our Smartphone into a mobile office. And in between…lunch is provided courtesy of East Coast Title! If you're anywhere in the Baltimore area, this will be a Monday well spent.
It's on my calendar…how about yours?
