When I moved my real estate office from Route 12 to Hurlbutt Road in Gales Ferry during 2004, I moved eight 4-drawer legal file cabinets with me. They took up a huge footprint and the need to digitize all of those closed files became obvious. I sold a few houses back in the day. Eight 4 drawer file cabinets represented over 1000 buyers and sellers, most of them in Ledyard. It was a momentous task but with some help I managed to scan all of those files by the end of that year. Most of the help came by way of my ScanSnap Scanner. I've had a few models since 2004, always upgrading to the latest new features. I'm happily using the ix1500 now as friends and family welcome my old toys.
Several years back, I posted on Twitter that I would give up my dishwasher before my Scansnap. Those words were noted by the good folks at ScanSnap and I was asked to become a member of the ScanSnap Squad. I've been a proud member ever since despite having retired from the real estate field and am now working as a supervisor at the Ledyard Food Pantry.
Much of what I learned during my 40 years in real estate has proven to be beneficial in my role in the non-profit sector. Database development, communications, social media and technology have translated well and my ScanSnap Scanner continues to be one of my most used tools
