Last week there were fireworks at MidYear over public facing websites. The headlines in the press and social media kibbitzing gave a less than coherent story. Bill Lublin, Vice Chair of the MLS Issues and Policy committee has written up an amazingly detailed account of the before, during and after. Read carefully, this will become an important reference doc for the months to come. http://rereflections.com/what-you-need-to-know-about-nar-the-mls-and-public-facing-websites/
Docusign has acquired Cartavi. Already fabulous, when even more tightly integrated they will be the perfect doc and transaction management system. Congrats to Paul Koziarz, Glenn Shimkus Katie Lance. http://www.docusign.com/onesolution/
Dean we put in Contactually and then took it out for a couple of reasons. - Everyone wanted different buckets. Some people had too many buckets and other people didn't have enough. - No way to integrate Contactually interaction with e-campaigns off crm. It could look pretty stupid for a buyer prospect to get unrelated emails in the same few days. - The most number of synchs with gmail was 12 for every 24 hours. Our crm and gmail are directly linked. Doesn't make sense for anything to do with new clients/registrations and kicking off an auto-response. - The social pull was much weaker than Rapportive. - It would be useful as an adjunct for a more comprehensive crm, maybe for staying in touch with past clients. But we can do that in other ways off the crm.
Rebecca Jensen I'm with a big firm, and there's always a contest of some sort, but I find them to be demeaning. I comply with mls and license law for real contracts, but I deliberately withhold turning in slips saying how many list pres I did that week or how many people I got to an open house.
Chris and Jimmy you should be proud of what you've accomplished since this started not too long ago...good choice for Scott Stratten. The value has been enormous and I wish more people would take advantage of the resources here rather than using it as a platform to argue for their agenda at all costs. I think my "don't do this" list is longer than my "do this" for these forums. Scott, hope to meet you in Ft. Worth.
Victoria Jacobs: So you respond to leads when you are showing homes to clients, going over a contract with a seller, negotiating a deal, having lunch with a former client, attending a settlement, sleeping, at a movie, eating etc? I am with Billy Wemlinger and Linden Moe here, when I am with my clients, they are my primary focus, not a semi anonymous internet lead. And my clients refer me. It's funny, when I get a referral from a client, there is zero expectation that I respond on a dime, yet from people I don't know, I am supposed to drop everything and get them "more information"?
Her Broker first, then your local board. This is a perfect example of an agent who doesn't understand the process of multiples. If the multiple offer box is checked, It is the sellers right to accept any offer at anytime. The agents bad communication is the problem.
