Thats why when I have people in my car that I'm talking with I have my GPS on to "ping" me to pay attention when a turn is required. It works! Don't know how much I trust the idea of self-driving cars yet.

No self driving car for me. No I don't think the self driving car will work for real estate.

I would love for the car could park it self while I got the door opened and house prepared for showing
I'd love to leave the driving to the car so I can focus on the client. Right now I do showings with a business partner so we can keep the buyers engaged and the other can focus on finding the house.

Anything is possible. Well almost anything.
One of our friends hired a limo so that she could talk while driving when she took clients out. It was her version of self driving. A
A self driving car programmed to see the open houses. When interested strike a deal directly with listing agents. Why needing a buyer realtor for?
I hope not, i enjoy the drive to a new home with clients.
We need to see how they operate in day-to-day traffic conditions first.
