Technology: Love it or hate it, it’s an integral part of your job in real estate.

But how do you really feel about it? Is it an asset or an annoyance? A hindrance or a hero?

Some agents and brokers welcome new applications and devices with open arms, while others are just as happy to stick with a pen, notepad and landline.

Where do you fall on the spectrum?

We’re inviting readers to tell us all about how technology affects their lives. Intrigued? See the instructions below.

We’ll publish the most compelling profiles in the coming weeks on Inman, so you can learn all about how your friends and colleagues are embracing (or eschewing) everything tech-related.
