In planning for 2012, I'm thinking of adding transaction management software to my arsenal of tools. Has anyone ever used Settlement Room, Skyslope, or Sureclose? Maybe I'm looking in the wrong places, but I haven't been able to find many reviews. If you have any experience with these or any other tools, please share. Thanks!

Good morning ACRE-land! It is a Monday and usually that adds up to what I call "Smokey the Bear" activity...you know, stomping out forest fires! But today started off a little different.
I was licking my wounds after being dissed by a "friend" who I did a consulting listing appointment with that emailed me over the weekend and informed me that they had selected another traditional commission agent to list their home. In light of this I have also pretty much come to the conclusion that I will probably not be working with friends in the future! I have had two really bad experiences having friends as clients this year, one of which led me to ACRE, so I guess it isn't all evil :)) But I am learning that perhaps friendships and business should be kept separate and I should just answer those requests with a referral to another agent that I know, love and trust!
Anyway...I digress...my wound-licking came to an abrupt halt when I received an email from the Senior Editor of Texas REALTOR® Magazine asking my permission to quote me in the magazine and include my head shot. I commented on a Survey on Facebook that asked “What do you wish you could change about the real estate industry?”
My answer was "Embracing alternative compensation models which more directly answer the consumers wants and needs."
I am being quoted in Texas REALTOR® Magazine as such and hope that this will get other Texas agents thinking like an ACRE!!!!
Just wanted to share my Facebook success and one more step in a positive direction for the cause!
Happy Monday Y'all!!!
