I find it very difficult to imagine that there are still computer illerates out there who are stepping into the work force.

I am not a broker but I do have a small team and it is very important - there is so much to learn I don't want to teach that too

Every real estate professional needs to have the computer skills that are needed in the business. Classes are usually available to learn MLS computer skills.

When we refer prospects to an associate, we usually email the contact record. The agent can print the contact record or record it an their own database.

It's part of the job.  I still have agents who hand write all their listings, contracts etc.  I just go with the flow.

David Barr depending on the position for which a team member is working. For example - a showing agent does not need to be computer savvy, as long as one can schedule the appointment and show it to the buyers.

David, end of last year I decided it could be a good idea to bring on an agent, and ONLY looked for someone that was just as much of a geek as I am, so when we watch each other's business, it would be the same.

In today's Real Estate, it is necessary to be computer literate, but not a computer geek.
