There is a great scene in Lewis Carroll’s Through the Looking Glass, where Alice is raced along at breakneck speed only to find when they stop exhausted that they’ve made no progress. The Red Queen tells her “Now here, you see, in this country, it takes all the running you can do just to keep in the same place.”
We all know it's difficult to keep up with the pace of life in today’s world. Industry news and investing information spread quickly, innovations and technologies emerge daily while housing rights and regulations shift overnight. It can be hard not to let anything slip through the cracks. Sometimes it feels like your house, your investments, your business could be at risk at any moment if you don't continuously monitor all of this activity across multiple platforms and other news outlets.
Real Estate is supposed to be safe. You should be able to trust the roof over your head and count on the stability of working and investing in this industry. It's supposed to be the last stronghold of freedom against Corporate America, right?
That’s why you left the rat-race to work on your own terms; to be your own boss. You decided you weren’t going to play their games and drown in their debt. You took things into your own hands - instead of wondering if the ever-increasing taxes mean there might actually be social security left when you finally get to retire. You left your old life behind only to find that you’re still stuck.
Like Alice, it feels like the only way to keep up is to push those buttons and pull those levers faster. Sure, you’re getting by, but then you realize you’re still running the rat-race AND now you’ve taken on the risk of going it alone. The reality is:
You’re still drowning in grunt work.
You’re still sacrificing hours for dollars.
You’re still desperately circling the block.
Meanwhile the vultures circle closer – Institutional investors, the wall street conglomerates, and foreign money, and all those forces which threaten to absorb the livelihood of hard working Americans.
It's time for a change. You want to do better, and there are other real estate professionals out there just like you looking for a better solution.
Here's the good news - Doorward has created the first Social Real Estate community, harnessing the power of relationships so you can network, transact, learn, and stay informed all in one place. Finally – a professional network designed specifically for real estate.
Social Real Estate puts you back in control by helping to put your day-to-day operations on autopilot. Your time is too valuable to have to sweat the small stuff, always having to follow up on everything and everyone, and even comb through various groups of real estate professionals, managing different accounts on various platforms just trying to find the connections you need. Having everything truly centralized gives you your time back so you can focus on what really matters.
Your network is the most powerful asset you own. Doorward helps you leverage it, raising the standards of what’s possible for a world where everyone recognizes that your contribution adds value to others’ lives. We’re ready to be your springboard into the future of real estate, because by doing so and securing your livelihood, we help every person searching for freedom and fulfillment through real estate to find it.
We’re reimagining renting, property management, and well, all of real estate, for that matter - we should be able to live like the Jetsons’ in Orbit City. We’re rejecting the status quo and are redesigning and re-deploying familiar tools: integrating smart-home devices and cutting edge technology, so that automated tasks make every day feel like vacation.
Together, we can reshape the ways we think about working and about living.
