Real Estate on my iPhone

By in Real Estate Career with 0 Comments

I just got a new iPhone, and I LOVE it!!!  A blackberry technically would have been better, because then I would have had access to the local MLS, which for some unknown reason isn’t navigable on a Mac-based system.

But, who cares?  I can use it like a cell phone, listen to some iTunes while I wait for a client, play games,  check out Twitter, and do the on-the-spot kind of research I need to do when someone bets me if The Loneliest Runner is based on Michael Landon’s life or not.

The sheer beauty of having and utilizing an iPhone in my business was brought into focus this week; day 5 of owning it, actually. I had a client heading in to her signing in Spokane (buying down here, but lives up there and couldn’t get down to sign during this week), and she needed to make sure the items on her inspection repair list had been completed.  If they weren’t, she wasn’t going to sign, and closing would have been delayed and unnecessary snafus would have arisen.

So I drove over to her future condo and took a picture of the one item that hadn’t been repaired by the reinspect the day before and then, wait for it…E-MAILED HER THE PHOTO. Yay!!!  She got the pic, was satisfied that the necessary fixes had occurred, signed and tomorrow it should officially be hers.

See the pic yourself –

Nice to know that the fate of a real estate transaction can hang on the balance of some pixels.

My husband and I came to the Tri-Cities in 1994, and we thought it would be a temporary stop on our way to larger cities. He was a television sports anchor at the time, and we planned to go wherever the "next step up" took us. Twenty-plus years later, we're still here and we've loved every minute of it! We have two children now, and we've found the Tri-Cities area is a wonderful place to raise a family. It's a great place to do outdoorsy things -- I like to hike Badger Mountain or run along the river path. I also love reading ... by a cozy fire in the winter or a beautiful picture window in the summer (with the A/C on!). I've been a licensed Realtor since 2004. I earned my managing broker's license in 2016, which means I can run my own brokerage, or create a team of real estate agents and supervise them, which is exactly what I did when I formed the Cari McGee Real Estate Team in 2018! We have administrative and marketing personnel, as well as additional agents to serve you. I became a director of the Tri-Cities Association of Realtors Board of Directors in 2016, became Secretary/Treasurer of the organization, and was elected to Vice President in 2019.
