Self-promotion is a topic that I love to discuss and encourage.  I don’t think real estate agents do enough self-promotion.  The “top dogs” are always in the limelight.  How do the rest of the real estate agents fit into that blueprint? In my area, we always see the same photos in the newspaper, ...

 This is the second day that begins with an absence and leaves me feeling hollow. My usual routine of pulling up Gawker first thing every morning, checking in several times a day - much like AR - and taking one last look before bedtime is no more. I am rudderless and adrift, and I'm sad. Most of ...

It's getting harder and harder to rise above the competition but it can be done. It takes time and commitment. It's consistency. It's being in front of your audience all the time, never letting more than a few days go by without them knowing who you are, what you do and where you do it. Now, this...
