In Just 15 Years Real Estate Has Changed For Realtors
Life has changed in so many ways in our lives in the last 15 years. I am just reflecting now as a real estate agent and Realtor of my beginning times in this field I have with a passion. In my decluttering ways it was time to tackle my old real estate files that were kept hard copy before scanning to electronic file storage occurred to me. As we were told 'paper was best'! One can only laugh now.
As old huge files of closing documents are passed their times for retention required, I became amused as I looked at the 'triplicate' NCR paper needed to do a listing when I first became a Realtor. OMG how I had forgotten how time consuming it was to do a listing for a client then. And the amount of paper to be stored it was overwhelming with the big files! It is easy to block all of this out of your mind. Remember also that many other Realtors never used a computer and could not even use a fax to send items. Thank goodness we are a smaller state so hand delivery could be done within an hour of travel but cumbersome.
We all may curse the electronic age in many ways but the benefits can be balanced always with a quality of life one wants. It is good to look back in one's professional life and appreciate what we have now because not all past times were the ' good ole days'!
How about you and your remembrances in real estate gone by?
