How are you using the technology around you?

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with REODB Inc. / Technology Mechanics Inc.

I see it all the time.  The misuse or under use of technology as it pertains to supporting work and production.

I would like to open up this discussion with three very important questions.

Where are you using technology in your daily work process?

How are you using it?

Do you think you are using it to its full potential?

These questions will undoubtedly lead to dozens of other important questions that I feel will ultimately guide this blog in a direction that will produce some insight as to how Realtors function in there business and hopefully produce some valuable information we can all use to be more productive with technology.

Looking forward to getting this blog started....

I use a wireless internet card from Sprint so that I can "go to" the buyer and look for properties in the MLS.  We just bought a product from Visual Tours so that we can make our own listing virtual tours instead of paying a company to do them.  I use my cell phone to conduct business and store my contacts to call when needed.  I have a laptop so that I can take my business with me.  I belong to Active Rain to network with fellow Realtors and linkedin to network with my local acquaintances.  That should be a good start.

Web site, wireless internet modem, PDA with e-mail, Active Rain blog and a massage chair are critical to my success.

Congratulations on signing on as a new member of ActiveRain. Being a new member myself going on my third week and only posting a few blogs so far I truly see the awsome advantage that this truly can be; and only the beginning of a healthy and wealthy relationship of abundant professionals. Everyone has been so very kind. Hope to see your blogs in the future.   Best of Luck to all of us,  Nance
