Hey all. There is so much real estate technology out there, and I'm trying to stay as current as I can with all of it. I'd love to follow a few trustworthy blogs that review new technology for realtors so I can know what's out there and also know whether or not to jump on board. Any recommendations for good blogs? Thanks!

I think you have to be careful about trying to find too much of the "magic solution" with technology in this (or any other) business.

We forget that the most important thing is not the type of phone, tablet, or website that you're using. But it's really the knowledge, experience, and value you can give to your clients.

I think having a Smart Phone is probably a must-have item, but don't go spending hundreds of thousands of dollars a year on technologies that are cool/flashy just because you think it will be impressive to your clients and give you an edge. I have had the same iPhone 4 for the last 2+ years, and the same Macbook for 4+ years. I've updated a little bit on hardware and software, but haven't gone out and spent a bunch of money in hopes of gaining an advantage on the competition.

Use what you're comfortable with for a while, and when the time comes to upgrade, think multiple years in the future and stick with that piece of technology for a while.

I agree with Steve, while it is important to be modern and up-to-date with your technology, you also don't have to be the flashiest Realtor around. You may think you look cool, but in the eyes of your clients they don't really care.

I couldn't agree more on this comment.

Your tech won't communicate much to your client so don't spend too much time thinking on the latest tech, instead direct your focus on how to be the top agent in your market.
