Did you know Artificial Intelligence (AI) has been studied and developed for a long time? Like 50+ years?! Well, it’s now taking our industry (and others) by storm.
The AI platform ChatGPT has been so successful in the industry that it has even surpassed the growth of some of the world’s most successful companies like Netflix and Facebook. To put things into perspective, it took Netflix three and a half years to get to one million users, Facebook took 10 months, the iPhone took 74 days, but ChatGPT, an AI-based platform, achieved this milestone in just five days.
So, you’ve heard the buzz about growing AI technology – but how can you actually use it in your day-to-day? In this blog post, we will explore how AI can be leveraged in your business, favorite AI tools, and caveats of using the technology.
Leveraging AI can help you move faster, get more done, and create time for you to focus on what matters most. Here are some practical ways you can get started:

4. Virtual Tours and Staging
If you’re not already using virtual staging and tours – they can be a game-changer when it comes to marketing listings. Virtual staging can take vacant properties or vacant rooms and make them come to life with 3D images of furniture and decor that can be placed in a room to help potential buyers visualize the space. Virtual property tours can help a buyer get a more real-life feel for a home before they go on a tour. There aren’t many DIY ways to do virtual staging or quality virtual tours – we recommend going to the pros on this. Your preferred photographer most likely offers these options. If not, check out BoxBrownie.

6. Note Taking & Transcription
Wouldn’t it be great if you had a personal note-taker that could record your meetings, take your notes, give everyone their action items, and summarize what was discussed in those meetings? Focus in and save yourself time with AI that can run in the background and do all of those things for you!
Here are a few tips and tricks to help you make the most of AI tools:
- Be specific and start with a clear purpose.
- Tweak and regenerate responses until you get what you need – teach it to individualize it.
- Keep a list of ‘perfected’ prompts to help guide your AI tool.
- Be cautious of plagiarism and always double-check the accuracy of AI-generated content.
Last month in a webinar we hosted about being early adopters of AI technology, the question was asked, “Will AI take my job?” and the answer was, “No, but someone who leverages AI will.” Regardless of how you feel about the answer to this, AI is here to stay. And if you work with AI it can be a tool that helps you accelerate and innovate in your work.
