Century 21 Recognizes the Importance of Technology in Real Estate

Real Estate Agent with Marilyn Boudreaux, Century 21 Bono Realty 0912122870 LA

Century 21 recognizes the importance of technology!  It was announced at Century 21 Global Conference that Century 21 will partner with Google!  

Sam Sebastian, director , local at Google shared the excitement about collaborating with what he called "the boldest brand in real estate"It was also announced that Century 21 will take over the home page of You Tube on March 27th!

I am very proud and honored to be associated with Century 21 and was the recipient of this years Technology Producer Award!

 Most of us know and realize how important technology is in our current market.  Century 21 presents the Technology Award to the producer who understands the integration of technology in real estate sales and realizes it is integral to the success and growth of their business. The nomination process for this award starts with submissions by members of the International Headquarters Franchise Services Team.  A Panel of judges reviews each submission and a winner is selected.



I never thought I would be the winner  on the big stage with Rick Davidson, President and CEO of Century 21 and Bev Thorne our Century 21 Chief Marketing Officer!


Matt Gentile, who is in charge of Century 21 Social Media is just one of many who has inspired me and is one of my mentors!

I have also learned so much about technology  from guru, Chris Smith that I shared one of is quotes about technology in my acceptance speech.  "Technology is not a bad thing it doesnt put a damper on success the key is to use it to your advantage while remembering that success if fueled by people serving people".

There are so many others that I feel the need to thank, many friends and colleagues who are bloggers here on Active Rain.  Bob Stewart has always been supportive and answered my questions when it comes down to SEO, long tail phrases and all the other blogging pluses that get you noticed!  YES Technology can grow your business !  THANK YOU ACTIVE RAIN!

I feel so honored to be the recipient of the Technology Producer Award and accepting it on the big stage is just like the Oscars right down to cutting you off with music to end your acceptance speech!

My advice to other Realtors is this : "Breakthrough comes in incremental steps, just be consistent in your efforts, maintain your faith and don't be afraid to ever think outside of the box"!

Such an awesome honor Marilyn!

I read all about the C21 partnership with Google. I'm particularly interested in the Google Adwords Express option that has been extended to all C21 agents. If you ever take a stab at doing your own Google Adwords campaigns using the express plan, I'd love to hear about it.

Congratulations on the recognition from your peers. You earned it!

Put 40 years of experience to work for you

Our company in Sacramento recently switched to Google and while I like it for some things, I don't use it for email. I simply forward my google email directly to my domain name because so much of it goes to spam, and I can't afford to have anything go to spam. Especially purchase offers!! I'm just not a big fan of gmail. Plus, there's that whole "google is taking over the world" monopoly going on.

Congratulations on your award. You look positively radiant!!

Is it me, or does it seem like social media has grown over 50% in the last two years in this way?

Congrats on your achievement Marilyn!  It is so incredibly important to be up to date with the technology.  As we get older, it gets harder, no doubt.  But if you want to get referrals and houses sold, you need to be up to date or at least be on the road to learning about the new technology.

As a believer and user of technology, I know thet employing a full featured tecnology marketing plan is more that plugging a  flat screen TV into the wall receptacle.  It took study, webinars, investment, failed attempts, persistence, late nights followed by early mornings and so many other sacrifices.  You stood on the stage with well deserved recognition, while representing all Realtor technologists.  Congratulations on a job well done!

Way to go Marilyn!!!! Lake Charles is lucky to have a national rock star. And I'm happy to see the partnership with Google. In my humble opinion, FAAAAAAR better use of money than Formula One sponsorship.
