Welcome Welcome to The Official Guide to Dining & Living. We had such a good time with Renato & son, Alberto, we decided to have them join us on the cover again! Located in the Harbour Bay Plaza in Sewall's Point, Renato's has been serving old world Italian Cuisine for almost 20 years! If you have not been, you do not know what you are missing! Enjoy our expanded Living Section this issue with our own Real Estate Section. Before becoming publisher of The Guide, I worked in the Real Estate field for over 15 years in New England and more recently Costa Rica. After living on the Treasure Coast and successfully running The Guide for the last 4 years, I joined Prudential Florida Realty in Stuart earlier this year. Don't worry about the 'little book'; The Guide has always been first and foremost about great food and good times! Bon Appetit!

I have to admit the first time I saw a QR code I thought two things: What & Why? What: If you have a Smartphone/iPhone, you can download a free app, use the camera on the phone to scan the image and you will get a link to a website that the code is associated with. From there you can browse the website for information on whatever inspired you to look it up in the first place. In Real Estate, there are some admittedly techie, but very cool applications. For starters, it can be put on the sign and link to a website or video for that property. Anyone driving by could scan the image, look at the photos of the inside without first making an appointment. If intrigued, emailing, calling or texting the agent is a fast option at this point. I have seen friends look up codes on their phone just to see if it worked. In addition to signs, QR codes are often seen in print advertising, email signatures and business cards as well. Put that QR code in the newspaper and potential buyers can get all of the information on your home immediately. Why? I have to admit, that the pace of technology today can be exhausting to keep current with. It reminds me of trying to keep pace with the dot.com era; some new technologies were big winners while many others were a bust. QR codes initially appealed to the younger, sophisticated markets, but are now trending to the 40-something markets. Mobile scanning was up 700% in 2010 and mobile commerce, depending on the study cited, is currently projected to be in the billions and headed for trillions before the end of the decade; I guess those $.99 apps do add up! On Realtor.com, on the weekends, 20-25% of their traffic is from mobile devices. The way I see it, if a QR code can assist buyers with getting information on your home that is for sale, then you should have one in your marketing mix. QR codes are free and are only a matter of getting your head wrapped around the concept. As a tech savvy agent, I try to use them whenever possible. And when a potential buyer does see and use the QR code, your property will stand out above the properties that do not have a QR code. Even if it is that one in ten buyer, it may be the one that eventually calls your home – “their home.�
