New Blogger: Picture Fun - 06/18/08 08:04 AM
I'm new to blogging and have never posted a picture on my blog. So here goes....
This is a picture of my puppy, Sophia. And this is a picture of my dog, Al Pacino.
Now that I've got that figured out, I can't wait to blog about some interesting topics. I would love to put my puppy on my business card, but I think it's tacky to have pictures on business cards. If I had a horse it might be different....
Pet Peeve: Realtor Business Cards - 06/17/08 11:51 PM
Okay, I'm in a mood. I admit it. I don't understand why most realtors put their pictures on business cards. I do understand actually.... name recognition. But.... aren't we still rated below lawyers and just above used car sales people? Does this practice help our reputation? Isn't it incredibly tacky? Who am I to talk? I do it. But not for the usual reasons. I do it because I'm too busy to take the time to figure out another way. I want to make an elegant simple business card with no exhaustive list of phone numbers (who needs all those!), no blurb (212 comments)
Blog Day Afternoon - 06/16/08 09:49 PM
The person who got me to sign up for Active Rain asked me why I haven't been blogging lately. "If I had the time to blog, I'd blog" I replied. "well, that's what the after midnight hours are for," she said. I gave her a blank stare. I really do prefer a good book to relax with. But we both did agree that both buyers and sellers are on the internet now, and blogging is the way of the future. But how can I fit it into my life? While driving home, I realized that open houses would be a great (4 comments)
My Time Has Gone to the Blogs! - 06/11/08 10:08 AM
I was up past midnight the past two nights making comments on blogs, writing my own, searching for information on Active Rain.... And then I woke up late the past two mornings and wondered: where on earth is my time going? It's gone to the blogs! I started thinking about when I first started in real estate back in 1983. There were no computers used in real estate back then. No blackberries either. Heck, we had to cart around big thick books full of listings and mark them up when sold. If we wanted the newest ones, we had to physically drive (14 comments)
Hard to Sell Homes - 06/09/08 10:02 PM
Caveat: This is my first blog ever! Up until very recently, I thought only weird people with tons of time on their hands "blogged." I mean, look at the name: BLOG. What the heck does that mean? My husband has been blogging for a couple of years, real estate associates regularly "blog" and so now, I decided, it's finally my turn. For starters, Buyers and Sellers are very interesting to me! They are all so very different, and I love getting to know each new client and figuring out how I can help them to achieve their goals. Right now, I (5 comments)
