Introducing Team Brio! - 05/20/08 11:40 AM
Before even beginning the challenge of building our business through the Makeover2Takeover Competition we were challenged to build our teams. I am fortunate enough to have Jessica Horton as my mentor. Jessica and I sat down to discuss our team name and we came up with a number of creative ideas. Some good, some bad and some that would have generated a lot of questionable comments on Active Rain (my goofy sense of humor). After it all we have made our decision...

Help! I need a website! - 05/16/08 11:02 AM
With one tranaction under my belt and one current listing, I'm well on my way to being a real live agent! Now I need a website. I've purchased my domain names at godaddy.com and have looked at different companies offering web design and hosting from $25-85 a month. I want my site to allow clients to search the mls, and ask them to register so I can capture leads. Active Rainers I am leaning on your expertise. Can someone direct me toward a relatively affordable web design and hosting company to build this newbie's website? (35 comments)
Active Marketing: Combining Passions - 05/13/08 01:17 PM
As we all know, the life of a real estate agent can be stressful and include long hours. It is important to maintain a balance in our lives to keep us at our best. For my health, and for my sanity, I devote time each week toward maintaining my fitness goals, but I realized I could probably find a way to tie my passions together. I just found the group "Active Rain Fit Club" and liked the idea of combining these aspects of our lives. Fitness and Real Estate. My current activities include horseback riding, hot yoga, running and (4 comments)

Lessons learned by a RE Newbie - 05/08/08 04:05 PM
Over my first couple of months in real estate I have learned volumes about marketing, about people, and about why I love this job. Here is a brief list of what I now know: * You will never have as much time or money as you have marketing ideas in real estate. (Postcards, Farming, Networking, Trulia, Blogging, Buying leads, REOs, websites, expired listings, FSBOs, relocations, Foreclosures, one and on and on...) * Ongoing contact with your database is priceless. (I just got a listing because the client felt her previous agent was not as driven as I am because I send her a lot (44 comments)
