FACEBOOK SUCCESS STORY - 08/30/10 08:26 PM
The power of social networking is undeniable and this month my firm closed a transaction where I can credit FACEBOOK directly for bringing the customer to us. I received a facebook friend request in May; I did not know the person on the request nor did we have any friends in common so I inquired about the request. She replied saying that she had searched the Internet for a short sale expert and after reviewing Green Realty's Fan Page she wanted my firm to represent her in the purchase of a new home. The client made an offer on a short (12 comments)
"Best" MLS photos of the week - Pet Edition - 08/28/10 02:19 PM
The local Multiple Listing Service (MLS) I am member of allows for only 16 photos and I make sure I take the BEST photos I can to give my seller the BEST exposure for their listing... Obviously not all agents feel the same way. Enjoy the photos - they are great! - I am a HUGE animal lover but this edition is especially funny....
Anyone else of the opinion that the kitty is the best feature of this room?
If the doggie dances for 2 more minutes he will get a piece of the cake.....
Great post by Jeff and something I always wonder when I receive an endorsement request from someone I do not know...
Via Jeff Dowler ~ Carlsbad Real Estate ~ 760-840-1360 (RE/MAX Moonlight Beach (CA DRE Lic. # 01490977)): Would YOU Endorse Me? A LinkedIn Controversy No, I'm not asking you to. You can, of course, if you wish and feel it's deserved, but that's not the point.
If you are on LinkedIn (you are, aren't you? It's your on-line professional resume. If you're not you'd better get there), you no doubt know about recommendations. You likely have some, and (2 comments)
"Best" MLS photos of the week - Bathroom Edition - 08/22/10 08:17 PM
My MLS allows for only 16 photos and I make sure I take the BEST photos I can to give my seller the BEST exposure for their listing... Obviously not all agents feel the same way. Enjoy.
With so many cleaning products on the counter, one would think this bathroom picture would shine... no such luck.
Introducing New Product to the Market!!! The Electric Toilet Paper Roll!!!
There is just so many (bad) things to say about the photo below - I am going to leave it open for a vote....
SPEECHLESS SUNDAY: A picture that says 1000 words - 08/15/10 02:10 PM
PARKSIDE ESTATES - A development where mansions were to be built... So the builders built the sign... they built the sign before they even bulldozed the old home on the lot.... Then the market crashed.... And today, you see the old home and the new (old) sign... and the tough reality we still face.
The reasons why I am in Real Estate. - 08/11/10 07:39 PM
I read a lot of blog posts that ask the question: Why are you in Real Estate? I am unsure if most professionals can answer that question with precision... I suspect some are in real estate for its flexible schedule, some for its income potential, a few started to assist a spouse in the business, the reasons are so many and vary so greatly. But today I am more sure than ever that I am in this business because I absolutely love helping my sellers. I received the 5th review, in only 4 months on Green Realty's Facebook Page and to (3 comments)

Cooper City Animal Clinic and Dr. Mendy - 08/01/10 10:55 AM
I am the proud "mom" of 4 adorable kitties and for the past year and a half I have been taking my kitties to Cooper City Animal Clinic to see Dr. Mendy for check-ups, vaccinations, etc... I could not be more impressed with the care that my loved kitties get when they are at the vet. Dr. Mendy LOVES animals and it shows; he pets them to calm them down, he touches them with so much care that the kitties feel comfortable even thought what is happening to them is not very pleasant, i.e. poking, injections. This is Spotty, the elderly (8 comments)
