My new techy toy for my mobile office

By
Real Estate Agent with Fonville Morisey/Santrock Realty Group, Inc. 244213

In the past I've blogged on several occassions about my Cool Mobile office and the benefits of having one. One I love my new AutoExec Desk for my carof my first blogs was entitled Tech Savvy Agents Have an Advantage in the New World Of Real Estate.  And they do! After that I added a few new tools to my toolkit and wrote How to set-up a world class Mobile Office with 5 Simple Devices and showed agents how to get going.  Honestly, I can't imagine living w/out all of my tools now.  I'm  on the go all the time and my mobile office helps me keep in touch when I'm out of pocket. 

I found that the devices were great but it was cumbersome when I had to dismantle all of the "stuff" and reconnect it in my car.  Further I had a hard time w/my tablet when I had clients.  I had to balance the tablet on the steering wheel, in the middle console, on the hood, etc.  When I flew to Dallas to visit my parents in March I read about a device that actually buckled into your seat, had space for a calculator, extra paper, a perfect area to sit my laptop so it won't slide around, and two integrated power outlets (one for my laptop and one for my printer).  

Integrated Power Supply is a plusThose days of juggling my laptop are over. I bought the AEGRIPSUPER-01 Super AutoExec Mobile Workplace w/Power Supply.  I decided that the Auto Exec was the perfect fix to my current problem.  And, so far,  it has been. The benefits are fabulous and my stress level over having an organized "mobile office" are over.  I can pull up listings on demand and write paperwork and print it out when needed.  

If you have been on the fence about "going mobile" don't wait until you are the last agent to jump on board.  By then, you may be left in the dust.

Good system, how ever you loose one of your seats. Also some cars or vans electrical system will not handle the invereter pluged in to the lighter and could pose a fire danager. I currently use a mobile desk setup that allows me to still use my seat if a client needs to set their. I have also direct wired my inverter in the battery of the car. I have a scanner, printer, laptop and gps all on the inverter. I have a digital camera and video camera also with me. That way I can uploaded my photos and do a live video if the customer wants. I would recommend getting a tri pod for taking the photos keeps the camera or video more stable. Total cost for my desk was under $100.00

Tracy - I did some research on this nifty little portable gadget and think it's pretty cool. So, I'm curious, where do you put your printer? Is it a portable, one of those tiny ones that have those one inch by one inch cartridges?  I know my home inspection guy carries around a printer, small one..pretty portable.

I know I would like one of these, but how easy it is to take out of the front seat every time you need the seat space?

I have the one without the power supply and love it!  I may have to do some shopping now that I know I can get one with power.

Candace - the HP portable printer fits right there w/my handy HP tablet....Purrrfect.

Connie  - I know - I'm spoiled. The power supply was a big deal breaker for me because of battery issues w/such a small laptop.
