    How has technology affected your life the last twenty years?

    Now I’m not that old, but I do remember dot-matrix printers and flat bed scanners.  This again was in the age where a new computer with 1.5 gigabytes of storage was adequate for the next five generations to come.

    Skip ahead twenty years.

    We now hold phones in our hands with more power than twenty of those Pentium II chips, more storage than we could ever imagine and the ability to create and share multimedia with astonishing speed.   The way we live has changed.

    The way REALTORS do business has changed. 

    Having a background in MIS and running tech companies, I’m often intrigued by the technological innovations happening in the Real Estate industry.  High end customer databases allowing us to stay in touch with our consumers across multiple platforms (text, social media, email etc.). An ever demanding need for highly skilled technical marketing expertise to sell homes across many mediums

    Twenty years ago, we had MLS books, fax machines and the NEWSPAPER.  Today we have consumers browsing on their smart phones, hundreds of web platforms, tablets and more.  Some demographics now do not even know what a phone booth is.

    The world is changing fast.  Exponentially related to the speed at which we can consume and share information.

      I can remember first learning HTML for a geocities website. I loved it. Used my dot-matrix printer to print off the then 100 HTML tags and went away. I still miss marquee!
