Whether you’ve been selling real estate for 6 months or 30 years, the communication landscape is changing…and fast!

If your clientele is younger than baby boomers, you’ve probably noticed that they aren’t into faxing, emailing and using landline phones anymore. My 11 yr old daughter said today that I was listening to some ‘oldies’ songs. They were from the 70s & 80s. I said those aren’t oldies… oldies are from the 50s & 60s. She said, “No Dad, those are oldies”. Ouch!
