Tour the Latest in Tech with REALTOR® Mag

Ready, set … CES! From smartphones to smart homes, from the super-practical to the wild and wacky, it’s that time again, when technology companies roll out their newest products and tout their ideas for the blockbuster gadgets of tomorrow. The 2015 Consumer Electronics Show is almost here, and REALTOR® Magazine is traveling to Las Vegas to give you a front-row seat to the annual high-tech extravaganza.

Join me next week for a multimedia look at the innovations and trends vying to define the technological landscape this year—with a particular focus on what you need to know as a real estate professional, of course. I’ll examine the leading edge of home automation, break down the safety and security tools coming onto the market, and give you a sense of the latest advances in heating and cooling. I’ll also be watching for trends in key tech sectors that intersect with your day-to-day business, such as home entertainment, mobile communications and photography. Look for my coverage of CES on NAR’s Speaking of Real Estate blog and on the REALTOR® Magazine website (

Finally, I’m excited to bring our readers a view of the show from the perspective of a major real estate company, as I work alongside a team from Coldwell Banker that will also be on the ground at CES. I’ll feature a running selection of material about CES from Coldwell Banker’s Blue Matter blog throughout the week right here on Speaking of Real Estate.

Of course, my trip to CES won’t end when the event wraps up. Look for more coverage of the show in REALTOR® Magazine and on our blog in the weeks ahead. And be sure to share your own thoughts about the fast-moving world of technology in the comments section below.
