Could I?  Yes. 

Would I?  No. My computer is my workhorse.  I like my large monitor. It is all about efficiency for me.

The computer is much more efficient and effective for many tasks. I would never try to conduct all my business on a smartphone.

As a remote closing Notary Public I can not use just my phone Peter Mohylsky. BRIX REALTY . Fact is I only use my phone for calls and texts. Even if I could use my phone I prefer to use a MUCH larger screen.

I am not good with my thumbs and prefer using a computer. And our MLS phone app does not provide for all needs you may have for a listing - such as changing remarks.

In the mortgage world I still need a desktop (and prefer one for many things), but not for long.  Almost everything has moved to apps or mobile platforms....almost there!

Computer, 100%.  Adding/editing a listing, drafting escrow docs, reviewing contracts, all that needs to be on a computer.

Heck, I have my phone connected to the computer so I can even text from the computer.

No not using my phone for contracts etc.  I want clients to actually be able to ready them which most can't on their phones.  Sometimes they many sign a form or two that they've already gone over on their phone as they're traveling or whatever.

The video platform... I need a camera, mic, software to edit and upload one after another run and gun property videos, local community videos. The video channel makes the "office" online, open 365/245/7 and hundreds of showings at a time are happening behind the scenes. Need cell, office line and the computer for emailing links to the videos that do the heavy lifting Peter Mohylsky. BRIX REALTY ! What about you ?
