Top 10 Tech Tools: Do YOU Use Them? - 04/29/09 09:31 AM
Fact: agents who use today's technology to meet the needs of today's consumer make a better living and live better than agents who do not. Fact: most agents do not use today's technology to meet the needs of today's consumer! One reason why most agents do not use today's technology effectively is, I believe, that there is so much out there to choose from, too much. Agents are not sure what really works...and what does not. As an effort to help, here are the Top 10 tools used by my CyberStars®, 200+ top agents from the US, Canada, the Bahamas and Australia (7 comments)
Video CyberStar(r) Interviews....Good Tips! - 04/17/09 07:46 AM
My networking group, the CyberStars®, is a treasure trove of information from top agents on how to build our businesses. We focus on using today's technology to meet the needs of today's consumer, but few of us are "techies." Rather, we focus on making money, saving money and saving time through the use of technology. At our CyberStar® Summit last January, we spent two days sharing ideas, tips, techniques and strategies....a slew of great ideas that helped us all. I brought in Michael Krisa, "That Interview Guy," to do video interviews with some of our members. Here are a few of (2 comments)

There are a number of homes and condos on tehwater in our community, and these properties are always in demand. This weekend, there were two open house directional arrows leading from the main road into our waterfront community. Neither had a "Waterfront!" rider on the (13 comments)
Agent Networking: Sure Beats "Farming"! - 04/02/09 03:29 PM
I met with two other Reston area agents this morning for a "mini" networking meeting. Holly Weatherwax & Barry Allbright, both agents here in the Reston area, and I meet at the Lake Anne Coffee Shop here on beautiful Lake Anne. We met for a little over an hour and just exchanged ideas, ideas which I found very valuable. Among other topics, we talked about using a real estate database, the value of a Virtual Assistant, smart phones, refrigerator magnets, postcard marketing, automatic followup systems, Bluetooth and more. We plan to meet again and will invite a few more agents next time. This was (6 comments)
