                            (or Sam)

No, I am not talking about women agents strolling out by the street corner supplementing their real estate income with the world's oldest profession. I am talking about Mapping.

Mapping you say? Planning our routes for showing homes to our buyers. Many zig zag all over the place without a forethought. So inefficient with time and the expense of gas. They need to have a radius of their market area and not exceed that if that is their business model. Use Google maps and print out efficient maps ahead of time and plan the routes. Some MLS systems have this built in. Or use a handheld or in vehicle GPS tool. A service you also can buy is Dashfly.

So don't be a Run Around Sue, or if you are don't be a Realtor. Realtors are in a different service oriented business.

I'm catching up on all of your posts and thought I'd comment on this one since it's got my name on it.  My least favorite of all the names people call me, but, the runaround part sounds fun.  I always map out my route before I start making the appointments so that a start at point A and make a loop and end up back near the office.  It usually works well.

Gary - The goal is to be time efficient. In the Hudson Valley things are so spread out that it is foolish to not plan geographically upon starting out day.
