If you’re as old as I am (let’s just say I’m no “spring chicken”) chances are pretty good that you can remember a time when a fax machine was the fastest way to do business. A time when the ‘net’ and all of the accoutrements attached to it – computer, website, smart phone, iPad, social media, etc. were the stuff of science fiction. Perhaps you also remember when it was NOT a good thing to be known as a ‘geek’ or a ‘nerd’.
You’ve got to love how things have changed – now it’s the so-called ‘geeks’ and ‘nerds’ who are running the show – at least the technology side of things! This welcome change explains why GeekEstate Blog has no issues with using the once derogatory term for its moniker.
According to their website, which by the way is very well designed – obviously – “GeekEstate Blog was founded by Zillow.com as a resource for real estate professionals who want to learn more about how they can grow their business through smart use of technology”.
Proud to be known as ‘geeks’, the authors who submit their expertise to this useful resource are all experienced professionals who understand technology and how real estate professionals can tap into that power to run their businesses well.
Staying on top of industry trends, which can often change almost daily, is easier with the use of technology. GeekEstate Blog targets real estate professionals, empowering them with the tools for their success. These tools include forums, a blog, technology tips, links to useful resources, widgets and gizmos.
If you, like me, were a ‘geek’ or a ‘nerd’ in school and you’ve tried to hide that fact from the world, it’s okay to admit it now – it’s actually ‘trendy’ these days – who knew? Take a look for yourself – you’ll find information that every savvy real estate professional can use for their business – and best of all – you’ll be among friends!
