The trouble with closing all of my escrows in Hawaii this past week instead of being in Sacramento is laptop related. I know there are agents who work solely from cellphones, and that is what usually leads to complications and confusion.
Young or old, working from a tiny screen is super difficult. It's harder for me to work from a laptop over a desktop computer with a 40-inch monitor. Always tapping the wrong keys. Inconvenient screen to study multiple documents. And the edges of the laptop dig into my legs when I'm sitting cross-legged in a chair. Balancing it on a pillow is NOT a good idea.
There are days I never get up from my lanai because I'm steadily working on my laptop. So when I sat down to write about my 4th escrow closing for 2018, I reflected on the escrow. There weren't any huge disagreements and everybody performed as expected, but still, there is always a bit more work than an agent may expect. Even in a trouble-free escrow.
