Real Estate on an iPad Workshop – Apple Store Pres. Notes Sept.28,2011

My goal with implementing new technology and the iPad specifically:

-To make/keep Real Estate more personal.Yes,that’s right!
-Increase the quality of information that we give/provide to our customers
-Increase freedom and convenience for our customers
-Create more efficiency so that we can focus more on the things we would rather be doing! Prospecting for new business, to more time with our families!
-Bring much needed, increased professionalism to the Real Estate industry.

So, lets start with a day in the life of a Realtor® who uses an iPad

– Prospecting, door knocking, FSBO’s, Expireds, etc. Working with Buyers… You have solid data at your fingertips. No more going back to the office.
