My Android Assistant

By
Real Estate Agent with Lake and Lodge Realty LLC

Technology surrounds us and while most are passing fancies that never really fill the bill my Motorola Bionic has made me a better agent. Not only does it sync with Google so it reminds me appointments but with all the apps out there it has become a must have for my business. Of course being able to call someone while on the road is amazing but being able to open and read PDF's, photograph listings and email them, take pictures of docs and convert them to PDF's is amazing. I can find my listing ala GPS and find my phone with the phone finder app. Only have used that once but my wife can find me any time of day or night. Gives you a little peace of mind that someone knows where to start looking should anything happen. I even do my banking on it and love I can take a pic of a check and deposit it immediately.

Some of my favorite apps are weatherbug, yahoo mail app, camscanner, google goggles, droid tracker, mobile hotspot and of curse my Lake and Lodge Realty App which shows me nearby listings, prices and who to call to get in. My mobile app is by Smarter Agent and lets me see who has downloaded it and who is using it so I can keep better track of my leads. I have tried a few apps and deleted them but to put it mildly I would be lost without it (at least the GPS app). lol. I really think the use of Android phones has made the office assistant obsolete. This thing does anything they can do and works all day without a break.

If you are not loving your phone you really need to look at upgrading. I could not see what the hype was when I had a clam phone but now I have been enlightened I could never go back to a regular phone. My new problem is getting away from it. lol. My wife threatens to hide it but being able to search the internet keeps me busy. There are still a few things I don't know and the answers are there. I have used it to take pics and videos of water frontage and even Skyped a client over seas in the military. If you don't have one try it for a week and you won't go back. Best of luck in all you do and thanks for reading.

I have a love-hate relationship with technology, however if you're going to be in the game, you need the right gear!  I totally agree... a smart phone is an amazing tool.

I have the MLS info on my phone however I do not like how it works, may look into that further some day, at present I do not need as much as before.  The old palm phone and accompanying software was the best.  But I am hopelessly addicted to my phone and the convenience it brings me.
