Want a little help -- or even a lot? Help is on the way. The Real Estate CyberSpace Society has announced the new and unique Society Guru Help Line In announcing the expansion of this service for all Society members, the Society's Executive Director John Peckham said that the help Line is "like having a free personal support staff of 235 support specialists ready to help whenever you get stuck or have a question about a program you are using or about getting hooked up with new software -- or any of dozens of other areas of concern to real estate professionals." He continued by explaining that the Society’s Guru Help Line is available without cost to Society members 24/7 whenever assistance is needed.

Over 200 Society Hall of Fame volunteers are categorized and prepared to field any questions in their area of expertise. Peckham said that this service is a fine example of the sense of community that exists in the Society. Because some Gurus cover multiple topics, Society members have over 670 guru contact choices to pick from -- all categorized for quick and easy access.

Peckham continued, "To give you an idea of the scope of the Guru help line, the over 80 help topics (in twelve major categories) cover just about every major software program or device a real estate pro uses such as Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Act, Eudora, AOL, Planease, Digital Cameras, ListServers, Mapping, Front Page, Ares, Publisher, On-Line Agent, Quicken, Top Producer, WorldMerge, Visual Tour, both Adobe Acrobat and PhotoShop, SettlementRoom plus dozens of others. A wide array of additional help issues such as Listservers, Copyright issues, Real estate legal issues, Environmental issues plus help with such tools as Mapping, Demographics and Search engines are all covered by the Gurus honored in the Society’s Guru Hall of Fame."

He concluded by explaining that the Guru HelpLine is the only member service of its kind and that "existing and even brand new Society members can receive immediate access to the Guru HelpLine in just a few seconds!"
