HappyThanksgivingchalkboarddrawingToday is a great day for our family!  Back in 2002 we were blessed with the first of our child, Alexandra!  It will forever be a special day for us!

Each of us have great things to be thankful for this year…..

It hasn’t been an easy year for the real estate industry, but at the end of the day the industry is growing stronger – we’re getting more nimble, we’re doing more with less and we’re learning how to let go of some of our outdated traditions.

While to some technology is not something to be celebrated, on this day I thought it might make sense to take a minute to thank the geniuses in Silicon Valley for the ways they have made our lives easier and making the world a more connected place.

Let’s look at the every day tools we use….how about email…..we just hit send and thousands of people can hear the words we shout around the world.

Could our phones get any smarter?  We have a super powerful computer at our fingertips!  We can share our experiences in real-time and stay connected no matter where we are, no matter what we’re doing.

How about MLS systems?  We can manage most of our work life from one simple and affordable tool – what other business allows you to manage your key work processes for less than 1 dollar per day?

I would like to say thanks to every technology visionary who has poured their heart and soul into making the lives of real estate professionals more successful with exciting new technologies.  Without you, our new site RETechnology.com could not exist and our industry would be in the dark ages!

Happy Techsgiving to all who use technology seamlessly every day!  We hope you have a great holiday season and prepare yourself for an even better 2011!
