Dear Diary

Dear Diary,

Do people even have diaries anymore? Today as I sat at a business lunch talking with a few real estate industry tech heads, discussing in excitement the impact technology is having on real estate; I suddenly realized I'm at crucial point in my career as a broker. With the news that Facebook is now throwing their hat in the real estate game, I find myself struggling with an inner conflict. I think human interaction is what consumers need in a real estate transaction. However, I've noticed people are starting to interact with each other a little bit less in person these days. So which is it? This also poses a question that every real estate agent and broker should ask themselves is excellent customer or client service enough? Or do today's consumers value the sterile efficiency of technology because human interaction is becoming more and more like an option than a necessity. Depending on the answer it will determine what and how much technology I implement in 2018 to help NTR Texas clients who are looking to buy, sell, or lease a property. There is only one way to figure it out. A mailchimp survey, research and pour over market statistics, and lots of left over Thanksgiving Turkey. By my next diary entry, I will have my results and solutions to riding the real estate tech wave successfully.
