What Does It Mean To Be "Modern"?
Despite rapid advances in technology, we believe the real estate business is and always will be, a business of relationships and trust more than technology. With every day, there are new tools targeting real estate agents and consumers. The agents who succeed in the next decade will be those who keep a strong grasp on the relational nature of real estate, while adapting to rapidly changing technologies and market conditions.
