The Real Advantage of Facebook for Realtors...in Case You Haven't Already Figured it Out! - 03/16/10 09:10 AM
A lot of realtors and other business professionals will post on Facebook religiously everyday about their products. I think they have the wrong idea of what Facebook is designed to do, particularly for business. Afterall what is facebook grouped into but Social Media Marketing. What is Social Media Marketing? Basically sites like facebook are set up to actually be social and create friends and aquaintances, basically for businesses it is the 'Business Card Exchange' of the Virtual World! Networking with others and making new friends. Reminiscing with old friends from your younger days and yes BRANDING yourself. How you Brand yourself should (3 comments)
How Can A Listing Agent Go Out to a Property and Take Only One Picture? - 03/14/10 09:06 AM
Maybe I am missing something here but hasn't everyone heard the saying, 'A Picture Says a Thousand Words'? It boggles my mind how a listing agent can make the trip out to a property to list it for sale, take one measly picture of the outside and then leave. If you are there doesn't it make sense to go inside and take some pictures that might help sell the house? I mean how much time would it really take? 15-20 minutes maximum for an average size house!! I just don't understand it. Our market attracts buyers from about a 2 hour drive (42 comments)

Irish Alzheimers - Too Funny! - 03/10/10 09:04 AM
Irish Alzheimer's Murphy showed up at Mass one Sunday and the priest almost fell down when he saw him. He'd never been to church in his life.
