Informed Professional Survey
The Informed Professional Committee is planning for their July meeting and would welcome your input with this short survey about Customer Relationship Management (CRM) platforms:
NAR published an informative video to help Realtors® understand issues surrounding selling homes with solar panels. This is good information for agents to be a valuable resource to their clients. Click on the image to view:
MAR's latest video will be especially interesting to commercial agents, as it explains the integration of layers of data sets that are available with digital aerial imagery. Click on the image to view:
FCAR Video Library
These videos, the newest weekly Voice for Real Estate video, and more are available on FCAR's Video Library, on the FCAR website. All are accessable from the front page:
