Instead of worrying about what the "Other Guys" of the real estate world are doing, let's be PROACTIVE with our own technology. It is great to hear what individual firms are doing, but we must unite to NOT follow the likes of Blockbuster and ToysRUs.
As REALTORS®, let's use our collective power to host the largest annual Tech Innovators competition. This competition will allow the tech world's brightest and best to compete for top prizes (aka MONEY!) if they create tools that REALTORS® can use to make consumers happier with the "creature comforts" of today's technological world.
The time is now! If we don't start PROACTIVELY getting ahead of technology, we will be behind. This is war! And in war, there is no standing still; there is only advancing or retreating. Let's advance!
I get it. You may not be able to code an app or some other fancy tool but there are hundreds if not thousands of people who can help us keep the REALTOR® organization on the cutting edge of technology with the help of contests and prizes.
If you believe technological advocacy should be a key push for NAR in 2018 and beyond, then please sign this petition and ask 3 other REALTORs® to sign it as well.
REALTORS® are the best political advocates in the world and I know we can be the tech leaders too. Let's start today!
