I am so thankful for the modern communications technology which has become the “norm” for me  to conduct my real estate business. Let me give a quick background, I have been selling Real Estate for over 24+ years. When I had my first listing call, I had to drive to the client’s home and sign the listing agreement.

I was so  excited when we could fax the offers to the listing agent or when we faxed the response to the offer to the buyer’s agent. Diane would ask where I was going? Told her I was driving to the office. Then soon after it, I remember when I had my  first fax machine, I was so excited, that I would not have any  more late-night drives to the office, what a relief that was.

Then, I also remember one night when I discovered, that one of our cats chewed the fax machine wire and I had to run to Kinko’s to submit my offer.

Anyway, I was even more excited, when I bought my first scanner, life was getting easier to receive and submit offers.

When DocuSign was introduced, I was one of the early adopters and I have never looked back. Since then, I had clients from all over the Globe, some I have never met, and we have submitted offers and had them accepted.

 Not wanting to bore you, my clients come from China, Australia, New Zeeland,  many Middle Eastern countries and a great many Western and Eastern European countries. These sellers and buyers are  the bulk of  my client base  and I can safely say that I probably only met maybe 20% of them, thanks to the technology that we have.

My technology consists of, WhatsApp,( prior to this, I used Skype), Mobile Phones (from suitcase to my current Galaxy smart phone), Emails,  and of course Texts. The technology has improved by leaps and bounds and it has made my life so much easier, hence I am very grateful and thankful for it.

This wonderful technology has also allowed me to spend more time at home with our pets and not having to sit in traffic driving to the various places to have clients sign listing agreements and offers. Words are difficult to describe how grateful I am for this part of the communications technology.

These improvements over the years, have also allowed me to provide more efficient and faster response to clients and prospects needs.

I use the WhatsApp with my son in Italy. This makes it seem like he is down the street. Oh how technology has closed the miles gap and made our jobs so much easier.

We have been selling real estate since 2004, and when we started the IDX and online MLS was brand new, we had flip cell phones (and the day we got a TREO changed our lives with email access and lockbox key, faxes were the norm and online signatures and scanning/email was a brand new phenomenon...) we didn't start texting for several years later), so even in our 14 years things have DRASTICALLY changed. But the 10 years prior to that, plus more, what an astonishing difference. It's hard to believe all the broad changes! -K
