Technology and Ideas Worth Sharing

Dropbox Pic

Today, let’s talk about technology.  If you are using mobile computing or just multiple computers, you should look at something I use every day. It’s called Dropbox.  I have found that Dropbox is one of the tools I use the most.

Let me start off by telling you what I use and how it benefits me.  I use an Android phone, an iPad, a desktop PC, and a laptop PC.  I have downloaded Dropbox to everyone of these systems and they all sync to each other.  So my files I need are everywhere I am and if I don’t have access to on of my units, I can just go to and get the file.

But you ask, how will it help me? Think about this, you can go paperless or you can have the file or picture or PowerPoint at your finger tips. One of the ways I use it is to put “Today's Showings” on Dropbox. So, I have the complete MLS printout with me while I’m showing properties and don’t have to worry about trying to log into the MLS or anything like that. Or I can share the file with my assistant or share the file with the escrow company and I can see when they get or open it. This way, we only have to worry about 1 file and it is always synced. I also have every active listing and buyers file stored on one spot.

Dropbox is free for the most part. You can upgrade your storage if needed, but for most of you, that will not be necessary to do.

To start your free Dropbox account just follow this link:

Just sign up and give it a try. It is free after all and I think you will find it to be a great asset you your business.
