WTAJ >>> one of the best quotes when we interviewed him was the computer knows everything. the computer knows everything about things it can quantify. i knows there's three bedrooms and bathrooms. i doesn't know everything about those bedrooms and bathrooms. i don't know what they feel like or the color scheme or the quality of materials. maybe some day it will. but the agent remains relevant in the transaction today because the agent has been in the home already. they can tell you the vibe of the home. the stack stone fireplace is magnificent. they can tell you things about the home that make it much more -- how do you want to put it? much more appealing to us as people instead of data in a spreadsheet or data in a computer program. i will give you a great example. you can take a home and say here's the number. the right number of bedrooms and bathrooms. this is such a great buy. the computer knows everything maybe you should bid and buy the house now. when you look at it and look what the agent mentions to you. i show a how not far from the horseshoe curve. anyones that been knows trains run through regularly. had we not be there been at particular time. the person viewing the home would not have heard the trains pulling a big load up the mountain. and that has a distinctive vibe for that neighborhood. some people are comfortable with fact that trains run up and down the mountain. some people not so much. that's something i pointed out right as we got there. just wait it's obviously a matter of time there's going to be a surprise for you along the way. you know, again if the buyer bought the home online using the data from the computer they would never have gotten to experience particular feel for that neighborhood. probably the best way the look at it. a lot of folk believe since travel agents are able to be replaced that rooelz agents are behind. i don't want us to become how you -- it can't happen to us. there's a distinct difference between the types of transaction. we talk about purchasing hotel room or purchasing a flight which is very transactional something we do repeatedly. buying a home is something we do very infrequently. it involves changing our sense of security. we actually move from one place to another and we have a lot of motor vehicling parts to that operation. and because people do it infrequently. it's not something you become i will say skilled in as a consumer. because you don't do it often enough to become good at it. i think when you look at the transaction between the different in doing something prshing airline flight verses purchasing a home, you look at something that has so many moving parts and so many parts of the project that you need really a navigator. navigator or captain basically to point the ship in the right direction and make sure the ship gets there. is probably maybe more of a good example when you look at a rooelz agent who essentially uppering the transaction from open to close. >> some people call us real estate sales people. i don't think that's the right term. really we're not about saling a home. we're really about an agent. we're there to represent to help usher them through the transaction. we're really project managers. we're there to get from the contract to close. so the buyer gets the keys and the seller gets their cash. that's really what we are here to do. that's why it's hard to replace real estate agents with technology. >> before we head to break we wanted to tell you about a one-day sale at david donnelly antiques in duncansville. cash and carry sell this sunday july 23rd from 10:00 to 2:00. you the fill your truck for $25. 814-460-3259 for more details. when we come back we will go behind the scenes of agent
