Internet now an indispensable tool for veteran Realtors who were once skeptical

Tom Gongaware remembers when the Internet first came on the scene in the real estate business. “I think the fear started in the early ’90s,” he recalls. It didn’t help when the president of the National Association of Realtors gave a speech in the mid-1990s that “scared the bejesus out of everybody,” says Gongaware, general sales manager at Allen Tate Realtors. The speech warned that Microsoft and the Internet had crippled travel agents and real estate agents could face the same fate.
