I posted a blog yesterday The Rental Market that went unnoticed, well two people responded, and I thank you both, but I still don't have answers. Would a blogger like Broker Bryant ( I know you're a sellers agent) who gets a lot of attention in this inclement weather, possibly post this blog for me, and I could pay him with my points. Is there some kind of exchange system behind the scenes? One where we use play money (points)? I'm serious, would a blogger who gets a lot of feedback, please use this blog. I would really like the answers but (10 comments)
The Rental Market - 12/20/06 05:28 AM
Is anyone out there successful in their farming to renters? What company do you use to farm to them? I have used Quantum Mail, and although their website is not user friendly, I've found it very cost effective, the quality is good, and they deliver when expected. They also do very nice flyers, BUT they do NOT have a program geared to renters. It is very time consuming to design your own postcard, and the frustration has put me off keeping up with it. I did it only once. I have looked around for the past several days to find something (6 comments)
What I've learned is, I'd better keep reading. - 12/07/06 04:07 AM
If you're new to active rain, maybe I should say blogging (I'm a blog and AR virgin myself), here are a few pointers that may demystify some of your perceptions and organize you a little. Active Rain is a wonderful site for information, not only about blogging, but to learn a lot about the Real Estate Profession, and the many facets associated with it. Here you will find topics, and discussions that are not found in books about Real Estate, or Educational (CE) classes. This is a forum for agents to share their true life experiences (some hypothetical) and opinions with how the (12 comments)
Life is tough. . . - 12/05/06 07:20 AM
While we all send around good cheer to our friends and families, most of us do take the time to think of the less fortunate, well I think we become more thoughtful in later years at least. I can remember sitting in the cafeteria in grammar school and the nuns yelling at us to eat our lunch and have some gratitude do you know how lucky you are? There are people with no food! I don't think any of us even believed them...the joke was "send em this" Obviously we were fortunate kids. Our office adopted a family for Christmas this year, a (3 comments)
If you List you're gonna be Poor. - 12/04/06 06:12 AM
Buyers or Sellers? We all advertise that we work for buyers or sellers but I was actually wondering if agents had a real preference. When I started in Real Estate in 2003 it was a definite "seller's market" and all I heard was Listing is where it's at, If you list you last-you know the lines. Maybe two months in the business I got lucky, I sent out farming cards and got a call from a potential seller. Unfortunately when I got the call, I was so excited I didn't ask anything about the house, but I did go right away to the address and (8 comments)

The Real Estate Team-Choose Wisely - 12/03/06 07:23 AM
I just read a blog that Andrew Cox a Florida home inspector wrote : Is your Home Inspector the Bad Guy? As an agent I have had to learn from the burn on more than one occasion (actually it is happening all the time, less frequently now), and it's been no different with inspections. Andrew gives very good advice but I have a few things to add. One thing I've noticed, and there are some things out of my control, especially when you do not know the buyers agent or who they will advise their client to choose is-A new inspector, just (9 comments)
