Monday, January 24, 2011
ORRA members provide great responses to the "Closing Out” section of Orlando REALTOR® magazine. Read below for answers to the January/February issue’s question: What is your technology-related goal for 2011?
I would like to polish up my marketing skills via social media. I’d also like to update my familiarity with the technology options provided by MFRMLS.
Karuna Sabharwal, Charles Rutenberg Realty
My technology goal for 2011 is to be completely paperless!
Jen Dollar, Realty Executives Seminole
I would really like to get all my files on to remote servers. This way I can have access to it anywhere I can get on the Internet and I never have to worry about my data being lost on my own computers.
Lou Nimkoff, Brio Real Estate Services, LLC
I’m going to be using a new website I developed that enables REALTORS® to post their listings and hold their own private label online auctions.
Mitch Gover, Charles Rutenberg Realty
I plan to use YouTube to enhance my listings and gain more customers.
Anne-Marie Wurzel, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate
I would like to wean myself off of my big old paper day calendar/planner that I carry in my purse. It gets torn up by April. I need to start using my PDA for day-to-day planning.
Tobi Moyle, Wells Fargo Home Mortgage
My goal is to ensure that I have my iPad loaded with all the apps necessary to make me totally mobile.
Reese Stewart, RE/MAX Properties SW
My small staff and I agree that our technology goal for 2011 involves the 3.0 Droid (Gingerbread), which we expect to improve communications with clients via Adobe Reader, GPS, faster and easier e-mail access, and higher resolution for great pictures.
John Sliman, USA Business Brokers, Inc.
This year I would like to implement an active blog to keep my website filled with new information that drives new traffic continuously. I also plan to explore Twitter, so I can update my blog on the fly when I’m out and about.
Andy Sellers, The Sellers Connection
I plan to find the perfect phone that handles e-mail, electronic lockboxes, and MLXchange!
Keith Finnerty, Venture I Properties, Inc.
We would like to move all of our office documents to "The Cloud.”
Kim Meredith-Hampton, Hampton & Hampton Managent & Leasing, Inc.
I would love to completely eliminate the use of fax machines (I’m almost there). Also, I wish we could use electronic signatures more often.
Ron Hemke, Coldwell Banker Residential Real Estate
I am desperate to find the one solitary gadget that will do every tech thing I need.
Suzanne Murrell, Metro City Realty & Condos, Inc.
I look forward to the day when I can prepare a contract within Transaction Desk and give all parties the ability to sign it electronically.
