10 Ways Real Estate Agents Can Use the iPad to Stay Ahead of the Competition Jeff Lobb -EXIT Realty Technology Specialist Will the launch of the Apple iPad mean the end of the listing presentation folder or flip chart style presentation? Will we see agents showing off their listings via the iPad? Or perhaps they'll be using it to watch real estate training sessions or live streamed sales meetings? Either way, could it be a game changer? While most real estate professionals use a laptop for the activities listed above, there are numerous advantages to using the iPad for these same activities.  Just like a restaurant could use the iPad for taking orders or displaying their menu, real estate agents can use the iPad to demonstrate how professionally they can present a potential sellers home...

What Technology Training Generated 12 Extra Deals in 2010 for This Real Estate Top Producer? "If you are a REALTOR® NOT with EXIT, you DON'T have every marketing advantage!" Vince Arcuri, sales rep with EXIT Realty Foundations of Tampa, reports: I went to the Jeff Lobb seminar in Lakeland a few weeks ago.

I sent a few of my old clients a newsclip and one called me back, listed their house with me and it sold in two weeks!

I am in a Real Estate Coaching session right now with a fantastic Group in Rhode Island...Our challenge in this session is that we are so busy as Realtors....who has time to Blog and What do I blog about?  My answer is simple ! Blogging is an absolute necessity to be found on the web and all you need is to blog once or twice a week?  So what do I blog about?  Information about your community, your transactions, new programs that Buyers and Sellers are in need of or creative ways to market homes..what works and what doesn't....keep it positive and informative, but it doesn't have to be Brain surgery.. Blog with important keywords in the post such as name, town, market area and specific keywords that draw attention....Add photos, when possible that are tagged...There is so much to do and ...

I think in just about anything we do thats competitive in this world, to do it RIGHT....we need a COACH..I know the word gets thrown out alot and really gets deflated, but someone to be accountable too..someone to follow up with, someone to hear you and someone to simply set you straight and push you to get it done. More importantly its for someone to TEACH and LEAD by example.  "show you how to do it" so you can....GO DO IT.. "IT"...Thats right..whatever "IT" is.. Prospecting, offers, Marketing and YES of course, my favorite....REAL ESTATE Technology...I have been coaching for a the past year or two in between my LIVE Technology Training events throughout all of North America and it has been going really well...WHY?  its a more hands on experience so noone gets overwhelmed, its a small...

When It comes to Real Estate and being Mobile, having the proper mobile device makes all the Difference in the World..  I am currently running with two of the top Mobile Devices as we speak and testing them from every angle...Convenience, ease of use, ease to Post, and quality.  I am testing the IPHONE4 and an HTC EVO with Droid...I am still really impressed with the IPHONE4's ability to be really smooth and a one touch upload to youtube...The HTC's Camera is a god quality, I have just not found it to be as smooth to operate.  Another nice feature if you are going to post to Blogs is the ability to edit quickly on the IPHONE4 with IMovie... Puts a nice frame around your video and gives it a really different, professional look.. I am going to keep testing both in day to day, Real Estate ...

Apple’s Shocking App Store Numbers November 4th, 2009Apple announced today that developers have created over 100,000 applications for its iPhone and iPod Touch App Store, and that users have downloaded well over two billion apps in the 16 months since the store’s launch. Stop for a second to think about those numbers. The store’s only been around 482 days. It launched with only 500 apps, so that averages out to more than 200 new apps a day, and a staggering 4,149,377 downloads a day. Apple says it has sold 30 million iPhones and 20 million iPod touches. If we assume that every single one of those devices was sold to a different person, and every single device was used to download apps, that means Apple’s averaging 40 applications per user. And that’s the theoretical low end: Since some...
