Latest Topics in Dominican Republic
Finding relevant and intuitive information on important topics in the Dominican Republic is at times difficult to achieve. Especially if things are presented online where the information may not be immediately clear or current. So that’s why we created our online conference feature at William Holden International Realty. It’s a chance to learn more about important topics and gain answers to questions from a panel of people who know what they’re talking about. There is no cost to listen in on the conference and there is no commitment to do anything. The process is simple and explained in more detail below.
William Holden International Realty has chosen Zoom Video Conferencing for online discussions because it is FREE and simple to use. It’s a great way to learn more about topics and specific properties in the Dominican Republic. We found it much better than talking over the phone or sending slide-show presentations by email. It is especially effective when discussing complicated spreadsheets or multiple options in a real estate purchase scenario where unit selection or unit availability is a topic. Using Zoom cuts down on the back-and-forth emails that can accumulate unnecessarily. It is also more convenient than “Chatting” back and forth with other types of software. The most important feature of our online conferences is “Screen Sharing” where everyone on the conference call can view a slide show, web-page, or document presentation. In addition, each participant on the call can share their thoughts or ask questions.
Zoom Online Conferencing can be used on a computer, tablet, or cell phone, whichever is most convenient. The conference can be made one-on-one or with groups of people.The signup process is described below.
The first step is to DOWNLOAD THE ZOOM SOFTWARE. (This link also has Zoom Apps for cell phone and tablet.) Once the “Zoom.pkg” or “Zoominstaller.exe” has been downloaded, click on the filename to install the software. After launching Zoom, click “Join a Meeting” to join a meeting without signing in.
To sign in, use your Zoom, Google, or Facebook account. If you don’t have an account, click Sign Up Free. If you have a Zoom account but cannot remember your password, click Forgot. (Click Here for More Info)
Once Zoom has been downloaded and installed, the following panel appears when the program is open. From here, you have four options:
- Start a “New Meeting” if you want to host a meeting,
- “Join” a meeting that you have been invited to attend,
- “Schedule” a meeting to be shared in the future, or
- “Share Screen” if you want to share a screen with others.
This panel example shows current date and time — and meetings you have scheduled. In this case a meeting has been scheduled on November 07 at 4:00 pm to talk about availability and pricing at Hacienda Samana Bay. The meeting ID is included and an invitation has been sent by email. There is also a menu bar at the top with other options such as chatting or adding contacts for frequent sharing.
Once the Zoom App has been installed, you can also use the application for personal use. Most people, however, are used to Skype, FaceTime, WhatsApp, or other similar apps on Social Media. Again, we prefer to use Zoom for our online conferences because of the “Screen Sharing” and other useful features of the application. Therefore, you do not have to keep your Zoom App open at all times. It is simply there to use at your convenience.
The link below directs you to a page that displays various topics to be discussed and a time and date our the next online conference. Topics may include Featured Resorts or areas that represent unique potential for an increase in value over time.
Once you have selected a topic to be discussed and the time and date of that online conference — and made a request to to join that conference, you will be sent an invitation like the one to the left. Simple click on the meeting link and enter the password provided in the email.
One-on-One Conference Request
We are happy to schedule a one-on-one conferences to discuss specific topics of importance to you. All calls will start out “video only” and will be set up with audio only. Once you are comfortable with the online conference, face-to-face video conferencing can be activated, but again, video is not requred. If “screen sharing” is activated — only the screen of the presenter will be shared. There is no screen sharing of our guest’s computers unless requested by the guest.
