These days, technology is present everywhere you go. We, as Realtors®, are continually on the phone. Whether we are sending or replying to text messages, emailing contracts, or setting up appointments, we are always connected. Or are we?

A valuable lesson that I took from this is that in this age of constant technology we all need to sometimes take a step back and focus on more face-to-face contact. With all of the instant text messaging and emails we can easily lose sight of the importance of human interaction!
Until next time,
