    Hey Bryan,Good luck with the move. From what I’ve seen with the My Maps features Google hasn’t implemented the same level of collaboration that they’ve done on the Documents side of things, i.e. if I share a map with you you won’t be able to edit it.So a truly savvy realtor would have to duplicate your map onto one of their own and then put in the pushy pins, which isn’t that hard but more complicated then Google should make it.j
