Adam Garrett's Digital Tool Belt

Updated: Apr 4


Above: the 5 multiple listing services I have access to as of 11/22


While my physical tools to help buyers and sellers are extensive, my digital resources are even more extensive, with far more hours input to make them a reality. Their # below is lower than those listed on my physical tools section, but that’s because below is the tip of the ice berg, while the physical tools list is more comprehensive though not exhaustive.


If I could pay the thousands I invested into my physical tools to acquire digital tools as extensive as I have acquired, I would in a heartbeat, because the value of the digital resources I have is so much higher than the physical tools and is an invaluable aspect of my business. I regularly add/revise my digital resources, especially when prompted by questions of buyers who would be assisted by further resources than what I currently have available.


Here are a small sampling of some of the digital resources that I have available. If a link isn’t included, it’s in part because I don’t want other agents to plagiarize my work since it’s unpublished information & because it could be considered breaking the rules regarding buyer brokerage to any buyer or seller it’s provided to who doesn’t have an active buyer brokerage agreement with me or listing agreement with me since it includes unpublished advice.
