These days I am noticing that if you want to get a blog post read, doing your everyday job with Google Glass firmly attached to your cramium is a good way to do it. The editor of ABC News technology desk recently wore here new Google Glass around town and attracted lots of attention. And why not they ARE the LATEST thing. My friend Greg Geilman, a REALTOR in Manhattan Beach CA tried on a pair and did a Google Glass walkthrough of a home with them. We live in a great age where REALTORS can do this sort of thing and can use the latest gadgets to enhance the marketing, selling and user experience of buying a home. It’s a good thing. (h/t to Martha Stewart)
Yes. There are some things that remain to be worked out with this technology gadget.
Yes. It is new to the market and folks are just figuring out how to use it.
That said, we live in a real estate industry like never before. It is a place where technology, tools and time saving devices simplify and add variety to our days. People communicate in whole new ways and we have to be there to communicate with them to both help them and to build our businesses. We do know that the tech side of the business needs to be a small part of the whole time spend in the course of a day. We know that too much time tweaking the latest tech vs selling is a quick way out of the business, but it is a great time to be a REALTOR. So many choices, so many options to create the business and lifestyle that you want.
Has anyone else done a Google Glass Walthrough like Greg? Let us know how it went.
