Okay Realtor Text Skills just became obligatory! Learn to Earn Tips!

I just listed two homes with hot to trot prices. One is in Crofton MD and one is in White Sands MD. They go in the computer tomorrow.

But the real story is the Seller Client until yesterday had no tech skills. None. We started from square one. 

One Grandchild, one persistent Realtor, and one determined Seller later we have it under wraps.

We practiced how to retrieve Voice messages on the new cell phone, how to to text, and how to retrieve texts.

In case you are wondering, I just googled for text abbreviations and found this smorgasbord of text shortcuts. 


I need to learn the top ten but in case you are wondering I already know my tip top favorite.


Okay, it translates in to Starbucks. Is that cool or what? I love *$. They must have designed that for me.

Oh, back to the story. Then we practiced how to EFax, how to fax, and how to retrieve these.

Then we practiced how to retrieve emails on the laptop. We have not progressed to Docusign but we are getting there. The Seller does not always have laptop access so lots of workarounds we have found!

No, for all inquiring minds, I did not talk my Client in to an iPad.

Hi Cheryl, taking the time to do all this will not only save you..but your client valuable time as well. I remember when I had NO computer skills or knowledge and it did seem very overwhelming at first. Not only are you selling their home...but are teaching some great skills that they will use going forward. Kudos!

Yep, working on the iPad part. You just have to matter of fact put it in someone's hands and the deal is sealed.
