I sat today for a video interview with Duke Long, owner/broker of the Duke Long Agency in Indianpolis. Utilizing Google Plus, we had a fantastic 15 minute conversation on CRE trends in Central Ohio, the Midwest and across the United States.
Google+ is an interesting new social media tool that a number of we more "techie" practioners are experimenting with to share best practices, CRE news and promote commercial/investment real estate opportunities.
One thing I can't figure out -- I'm still unable to see other parties on video when we set up a "hangout." Everyone else having no problem based on my limited follow on conversations. With the interview today, Duke could see me, but I couldn't see him. Same issue when I was on a group call a week ago with four other CRE peers from different parts of the U.S.
True, Google+ is still in beta, and I'm one of the early adopters of this still evolving tech. But with the video issue I'm thinking its operator error (yes, on my part). Like I said, I'm early in the experimentation period.
As for today's interview, I can't wait to see the finished product. Duke, thanks again for the invite!
