    Re: Any Real Estate Agents or Mortgage Lenders???

    I was the IT Director at a Real Estate Company for 5 years
    I stopped working there about a year ago

    As far as software ideas, i'd start by checking to see if your MLS has a wap enabled website for you to find listing info from your blackberry.

    I wrote one at my old job, pretty neat but it would be hard to adapt to your market as the RETS standards would be completely different if they even exist in your MLS

    never did much with the mortgage side of things but i'm sure there are some loan calculators out there that would get you started
    pm me if you got any other questions

    I'm an agent in Virginia Beach. We do have a wap site for our MLS although it's a little limited it is a handy tool.The enterprise service has been the biggest bonus to having a BB, and Google Maps is amazing.

    If your MLS has a RETS type standard you probably could find a site that will be able to connect to your MLS and render the data into a WAP format for viewing on your Blackberry. Be careful though as some MLS' are very protective of their data and you want to make sure that the company you are using to gain WAP access has a written agreement with the MLS regarding data usage. Contrary to popular belief MLS data isn't public domain. No one has the right to use the data unless the MLS give them permission. I have reported countless companies to MRIS' (our mls in MD) compliance department for misuse of data. Some have had their feeds shut down as a result, which ticked off the companies' customers.

    Yes GoogleMaps is awesome, many of our agent's use it.

    Me and wife are agents, and own Equity Partners Real Estate, we both had treo's, but I have an 8703e right now, with 8100's coming from Tmo. I use berry 411, google maps, and Opera mini browse's our MLS just fine...check us out at www.re4growth.com when you have a moment. We are affiliated with Keller Williams, but have been with John L Scott, and Windermere before getting our broker's license's and joing KW.
