Is Your Realtor Tech Savvy??

The criteria for selecting a real estate agent has changed in 2007 and definitely in 2008. One of the most important criteria is selecting a Realtor is - are they tech savvy? One of the ways you can determine if a Realtor utilizes the benefits of technology is the Internet. Does you Realtor have a web page? You can look at the information on that website and look to see how often it is updated, the content, information regarding specific neighborhoods, etc. Or is it default information that comes from the company which hosts the Real Estate site.

Also, when you are looking for a Realtor on Google or Yahoo, perform a search on that person's web site address or name. If the only information that comes up is their website, and technology is important to you - well then you may consider another Realtor. The web address should come up a multitude of times in different arenas (i.e. blogs, etc).

When you a reviewing a person's website, it is better than a face to face interview. You should be able to determine their philosophy and priorities, and certainly their approach to business.

That being said - I know you are looking for a qualified, tech savvy Realtor who utilizes technology which ultimately benefits you as a client.

Whether you are looking in Newport Beach, Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley or in any area in Orange County, I look forward to assisting you with your Real Estate needs.
