If You Have (Or Want) An iPad - Awesome Resource For How Realtors Can Use It

If you have an iPad (or are thinking of getting one) and you are a practicing real estate agent, this is one of the best sessions I've heard on practical ways agents can use this new tablet technology for business. 

Matt Dollinger, a performance coach for the Chicago brokerage@Properties recently presented the webinar Tablet Use For Real Estatefor Realtor magazine.  What made this webinar different from others I've listened is that Matt doesn't just go through a list of cool apps, but rather he goes through them and then says how and why you can use them to assist in business operation. 

Yes, it is an hour long.  But I promise that the hour will go fast and you will get a TON out of it.  This is not just a presentation about the iPad.  It is a presentation about the iPad for real estate agents.

You can download Matt's presentation here on slideshare.  Enjoy!

Thank you Sara.  I won an IPAD at the NAR Conference in New Orleans last year and am looking for ways to utilize it besides being the favorite grandma of my 4 year old grandson who LOVES my IPAD.

I'd like to win an iPad but sadly that probably won't happen so I will have to buy one. I am also going to look hard at the Motorola Zoom though.

Jeanne - Only one thing better than an iPad is a FREE iPad!

Jon - I have spoken to a few people that have an andriod based tablet, and they love it.  As a Droid phone user, I think it would be nice to keep with a consistent platform across all gadgets.  They just aren't as many accessories.  I think the droid tablet market is going to catch up fast in 2012, especially as prices come down.
