Turning a Page in a Techy World

Turning a page in a techy world.  It's a bit of an oxymoron, I know.  Especially when the written word on 'paper' is quickly becoming a relic.  

In the last 12 months, I've printed one transaction... the rest were digital.  As a Principal Broker, this delights me.  As a nostalgic kind of gal, I'm still coveting all of my wonderful books.  

Relinquishing control to a mobile/digital world causes some to shake in their boots.  I imagine we all felt a bit of scepticism when smart phones hit the streets years ago.  Some quickly embraced them with smiles, while others had to be convinced they would make our lives easier.  I suppose our parents felt much the same way about microwaves and fax machines. 

Fortunately, I'm in the final leg of taking my real estate brokerage totally virtual.  I hired an awesome 'virtual' Principal Broker to handle all of our digital files.  It took months of prep and a bit of bravery to completely let go (coming from a self-professed perfectionist). Whoa... it's done!  No more storing print files for 6 years!!!  

Think of all the time, money, and Oregon trees we're saving!  Maybe now I'll have more time to read books and write blogs (virtually speaking ;-)  It's a brave new world and I'm lovin' it!
