Since getting my license in 2007, I have embraced the technology that makes a real estate agent more productive. The tools that I use the most are texting, keeping in touch by email, and using single propery websites to provide extra visual information for buyers. I've also worked with a team of agents providing full support for their internet marketing and advertising. That experience provided me an opportunity to gain extensive knowledge of where buyers are looking on line and what type of information they want to find.
Being a Tech Savvy Agent gives me an edge when it comes to productivity, however, I am always looking for the perfect balance. Even the most screen addicted people need the comfort of a face-to-face meeting to help them make the big decisions and understand the process of buying or selling a home.
Leading edge technology, networking with like minded agents and professionals is helping me increase my productivity. Every day there is a new membership site, gadget, software program or tech tool to read about and decide if it’s something that will help me be a better agent or help my clients. Belonging to a network of other tech savvy agents who share ideas is the best use of my time. I’m a consumer too, so I don’t want to waste time on things I don’t need or want.
You can best contact me by calling my directly on my cell phone, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I also see and responde to text messages during the day (614) 313-4196. I spend time helping other real estate agents learn new technology. Blogging, Facebook, Twitter, enhancing web sites.
Since social media marketing is a new avenue for business, we are ALL newbies when it comes to what works and what doesn’t. Tech Savvy Agents are more connected and much more dedicated to the process. We are all learning every day because the technology seems to change every day. I feel badly for agents who have let technology pass them by.
Community and technology keep me interested in the business of real estate. Past and present clients help me understand how and what home buyers and sellers need and want most.
