    Default Opened my own firm today and may seak advice

    Well I finally broke away and opened my own Realty Firm today....Hoosier Heritage Realty, LLC. For the time being I am alone in the business and keep an office at home. Now here's the thing. I prolly need to buy a new puter for the business alone. I have an iPad that can do almost everything for me (WiFi and cellular with the ability to be a personal hotspot) When I travel (vacations etc) I will need to keep in touch and be able to respond quickly and effeciently. When I'm at home I want the same but with print ability (my current canon printer is not WiFi capable).

    So what do you recommend? How do I set this up....is the iPad alone going to be enought or do I need a laptop that could be used for both home and travel. Believe it or not, I'm tempted by the MacBook Pro but at $1800 thats rather salty......then again.

    So, recommendations? Oh, and it needs to be able to accept my photo downloads for the local Board of Realtors database. I use a Canon 60D sometimes fitted with a Tamron wideangle lens

    also....would the Macbook Pro be able to read and edit a document created on a Windows desktop and vice versa>?


    hmm 43 views and no responses either I'm really stupid or I really confused y'all.

    Geezer, if you go on the Mac website I am pretty sure the new Pro starts at around 1200-1300, not 1800. If you are comfortable going with a refurbished model they can be as low as $900ish.

    And yeah, most Mac users use Microsoft Office for Mac now, and the documents created on Office for Windows and Office for Mac are compatible, assuming you are talking about the regular office suite stuff like Word, Excel, Powerpoint.

    Just out of curiosity, are you a realtor for homes, office space, or both? In Indy? If so what part of town?

    I'm all over town. My last office was south but I live east....but I've sold several in the Fishers- Geist areas and two years ago I did five in Pike Twp. I'm originally from Greenfield area but I'm very familiar with Franklin Twp area(wife teaches there) and North Central area (Jr taught there). I'm primarily residential but have done some commercial. Now, if you want a major office complex etc I'll refer you to some friends that are in that line. I'm also affiliated with an investor who buys and rehabs "landmark" homes throughout the state.
    I work a lot with young first time buyers and senior citizens last home sale or purchase. I carry the National Assoc. of Realtors "Accredited Buyers Representative" and "Senior's Real Estate Specialist" designations.
    IOW....I work with everyone or will help you find the right person for your needs.

    I bought a MacBook air 2 years ago and it runs just like the day I bought it. Had an Windows HP laptop before and was well worth the upgrade. I also have Microsoft office on the MacBook.

    I bought a refurbished 2005 IMac, and it still runs. Slow compared to my MacBOOK pro. No matter what makes sure you get more than 4GB of RAM. I dropped this MacBook Pro on the asphalt and she still runs great. Go ahead and make the jump it was worth it to me.

    Someone will dissuade you below me though.
