You can't to your mom: So talk back to me! - 11/21/08 10:53 AM
NOTE: Most of my blog visitors find me via my TypePad hosted blog. It's a carbon copy of what you see here except many who go there don't know about ActiveRain, thus the references. I'm aware that if you're reading here, you don't need an ActiveRain history lesson! ;-) Blogs give you a voice, but they are also can be a large part of your social networking experience if you know what you're doing. A site like Facebook is great for social networking because people interact so much - posting on walls, sending SuperPokes, instant messaging, stalking people by looking through (2 comments)
This week I graduated a group of Realtors from The Floyd Wickman Program at Prudential Arizona Properties in Phoenix. In a very rough market they did a fantastic job! Broker/Owners who could use a bottom line boost and Realtors who are thinking of getting a "real job" listen to this: In just 6 weeks, 41 agents produced: 463 local referrals from their spheres of influence 149 new listings 143 new buyers sales & listings sold! Let me spin this another way for you. The average agent in the U.S. is doing about half a deal a month (maybe less in Phoenix). This (0 comments)
Your Identity on the Web - 11/05/08 07:03 PM
Long ago, when everyone was discovering email in mass I had a nickname around the office. It was Agentjason. Don't ask me how it started...no one really remembers but it caught on. Soon everywhere I went, Realtors and other industry in Austin would call me by that name instead of Jason Edwards.

And today, Agentjason is my username for every social media website I sign up for. Twitter, Facebook, this blog is at agentjason.com, YouTube, LinkedIn...everything. (13 comments)

"We want to wait until after the election to sell." Did you hear that lately? I could tell which of my students had been out on listing appointments the last few months. They were the ones who came up to me and asked how to handle it when the seller threw that line at them. In fact if you've been doing any business at all - you've heard it, and if you haven't and I was your manager, I'd smack you on the back of the head and tell you to get out on more appointments! So now the election is over and (1 comments)
