It is amazing at times how fast things in the real estate industry change. Just a year ago if you said Phoenix would the hottest real estate market in the country in 2012, few would have believed that was possible. Something that may change even quicker than the Phoenix real estate market is how we use technology in our business.
There is a reason Thompson’s Realty uses the tag line “The Power Of Technology With A Personal Touch.” Jay and Francy Thompson understood that using technology could not only help them in their business, but also make the often difficult process of buying or selling a home more enjoyable.
About 18-months ago I purchased my first iPad. When I was waiting in line as excited as a 6-year old on Christmas Eve, I started imagining how the iPad could make me more organized and more productive. Little did I know just how much I would end up using it.
The iPad has allowed me to go completely paperless and save money. From having my files always at my finger tips with Evernote, to MLS on the road wherever you are, the iPad has completely transformed our industry and how we conduct our business. Now we have the ability to write and sign contracts from the mobile version of zipforms and their built in wet signature functionality which makes getting an offer in quickly a snap in this challenging market.
I have been teaching iPad for real estate classes for almost a year now. We are about to kick off for the first time an iPad for real estate 202 class where I completely walk through a transaction on the buyers side and sellers side on the iPad and show you exactly how to pull it off. The first two classes will be held on June 28th at 10am and a lunch and learn on July 11th 12pm at the RE Tech Tank (RETT) office at 1959 S. Val Vista Dr. Suite 113 Mesa, AZ 85204 (map). If you want to attend please email me.
If you want to hear about other upcoming training classes such as “The Productive Agent” and Evernote classes we will be announcing soon, head on over to the Thompson’s Realty Facebook page and make sure you Like us. Seriously, go there now. And if you are interested in joining a brokerage that pushes The Power Of Technology With A Personal Touch, drop me a line.
