Depends on what mode I am in.

When traveling, especially in remote camps then much of my office work is done on the smart phone.

When working in town, and near the office, much more gets done on a real computer and the phone turns back into a phone.

I speak on the phone wayyyy more.  I personally think this is a better way to do business and I use often personally.

I used text for simple communication all the time, but it's mainly good for short/simple communication.

I like to hear people's voices, and we find that often a written communication has the potential to create misunderstandings.  So I would say I use it for that 75% of the time...

I rarely talk on the phone now. I don't work with the clients directly anymore my husband does and our buyers agent. I work with the agents and I sit next to my husband all day and meet our other buyers agent in person for updates and meetings unless an emergency comes up. I direct all voicemails to be returned by James or John. Probably 10% voice. They spend a ton of time making calls to prospects and calling clients though so they are probably 70%, my husband may even be higher.
