Has Technology Really Enhanced Our Business?

Real Estate Agent with Paradise Coastal Realty, Inc.

YES!  As a relatively new agent how did the realtors of old, DO IT?  I'm not sure about other real estate agents but my whole business is tied up with electronic devices.  For example:

1.  Our association MLS website and the tools they offer for us!  Activation on cell phone!

2.  Cell Phone to enable Lockbox Key access!

3.  Personal website with automatic notification of leads to my cell phone!

4.  1-800# on yard signs with instant notification to my cell phone!

5.  Web-enabled cell phone to respond to all the notifications from all the lead sources!

So really my question is, how did real estate agents survive in the past without CELL PHONES?

ABSOLUTELY technology has enahnced our business!!  And anyone who isn't utilizing what technology can do to improve your business is going to be left in the stoneage.

It's sad to say that a few long time agents aren't even computer savvy. 

I believe it was said in the early 90's that if you weren't technology savvy within the next ten years you would end up being functionally illiterate. 

Not me. :)

Oh come on! You're trying to tell me that cells are better than 6 inch books of listings with polaroids!!!

I don't believe it. I'm sticking to what I know!!
