/ Category: , , ,


Technology in the Real Estate Industry is a necessity. It starts with the ability to utilize email, attachments, databases, calendars, desktop publishing, graphics and photos. You must be well versed on data entry to the local MLS and have the capability to upload photos, documents and files of various sorts, in multiple formats. Better have a scanner.


It gets more intense as you have to learn about websites, HTML code, Blogging, CSS, SEO, online advertising, marketing and the time management of all the above. Today, the cell phone is more like a tech-tool. You need to learn about wireless technology, beaming information, opening the eKey lock box, texting your client all the while trying to talk to your sellers.

I love the infamous "Can you hear me know?" as you notice only 1 bar, hear a faint voice and a crackling sound, and then a "Call Was Dropped" error is displayed on your LCD screen.

This is all what I call Technobabble. We use it every day and hardly understand most of it. Doesn't technology just abound in the Real Estate Industry? Now you end your day with a stop at the ATM, a click from your cars remote alarm, the code to get into the house, just as the automatic timer sounds for your coffee to start.

You remotely turn on the ipod in it's cradle, press a button to hear your VM messages, and start the box that sends micro waves through your soon to be prepared dinner. With a clap of your hands, you find your misplaced keys, and go get the laptop out of the self parking car.

As darkness falls upon you, your automatic light timers come on, the sprinklers begin in the yard, just as the automatic garage door begins to close. Your universal remote once again comes into play as you click to start some soft background music, your surround sound system completely controlled by wireless. With a touch of a button you turn on your Flat Screen HDTV 1080P to enjoy a little news and some "Hollywood" effects.

Within 30 minutes, you head for the computer to enjoy your RSS feeds from the day, using your favorite automated reader. An hour later, you're so deep into someones website or writing some blog, and checking google alerts, that you wonder how you'll ever keep up with all the technology in the world. Look where it's come, where the heck is it going?

With one glance at your digital waterproof watch, you realize, the day has come to an end, so you click a few buttons, hit a few lights, plug in your cell to charge, and the last thing you touch before falling asleep, is the little box clock next to the bed, to automatically go off at 6:00am so you can do it all again. Technology or Techknowbabble, it's a love-hate relationship. Can't live with it, and you can't live without it!

My favorite little Techno"Bauble" is email delivery of the NY times. I just love it. I can browse by topic, check out the top 10 stories and it is completely green - no need to recycle.
