• Keep Your Business Resolutions with brokerWOLF

    December 27, 2017
    When I think about business planning I get a similar feeling to that of making New Year’s resolutions...Just humor me for a moment. I think we can agree no goal is more deserving of your time and effort than a commitment to bettering yourself. But each year less than 10% of New Year’s resolutions are actually kept! I’d be willing to guess that the…
  • The Changing Landscape of Transaction Management

    December 20, 2017
    Transaction management is at the heart of every real estate deal. Buyers and sellers sign documents electronically, agents use digital forms, and brokers review submitted deals against a defined checklist for compliance purposes. Each process is a key component of transaction management. There is nothing more important in processing a deal than an…
  • The Power of Diagnosing

    December 13, 2017
    You arrive at the doctor’s office. What’s the first thing they say (besides hello)? Normally, they’ll ask you about your symptoms.

The doctor goes on to ask you more questions (what is referred to as 'history taking'), asking…
  • I H4TE P@$$W0RD$!

    December 7, 2017
    We’ve all had that dreaded message appear, “Your password has expired, please create a new password.” The IT folks that manage our systems tell us that we can’t use the same password we’ve used before, it must contain special characters, it must x characters in length…ARGH!!!

  • Why I'm Wrong About Christmas

    November 30, 2017
    I remember watching A Christmas Carol as a child and thinking, ‘How could anyone be that selfish?’ As the years go by, come Christmas time, I find myself getting lost in things that I’ve convinced myself are important. Getting out the Christmas decorations. Jamming Christmas parties into my schedule. Stressing about deciding on what junk I should…
  • Rethinking the Cookie-Cutter Approach to Software

    November 28, 2017
    Has the advent of low-cost, retail available accounting software impacted small businesses? You bet it has. The dawn of accounting solutions packages like QuickBooks, Sage and other off the shelf packages has given the power to everybody to create custom solutions based on their business’ needs. Though there are many advantages to these packages,…
  • The Holy Grail - Agent Adoption

    November 21, 2017
    If you’ve ever worked in the real estate industry then you know that agents have an aversion to using new technology (which is funny because they’re the ones calling out for new technology in the first place!). Every year brokerages, boards, associations, and franchises across North America throw hundreds of thousands of dollars into their tech in…
