I have used a TC and a checklist since my 4th transaction in 2000. I did the first 3 on my own to get a handle on it, then realized my time was worth more; TC tracks it, I act on it and review it with my clients.

A written checklist inside the transaction folder makes rapid updates and changes much easier.

I shy away from ANY transaction software that allows others a view into my trade secrets or the ability to seize the ownership. They  get to see the final product ONLY.
