I was inspired by Lenn Harley's post on team's and team specialists, who was inspired by Mirian Bernstein, who was inspired by a NYTimes article. Lenn's post touch on so many great topics I wanted to discuss each one separately. (Besides their is no Alabama football today, so I don't know what else to do!) Real Estate Teams: I have a great team! I started it in 2001. It's called Port City Realty. My company is small enough for me to really consider it a team. I came from the largest company in town so I have been exposed to both (2 comments)

How to tell "real" buyers from tire-kickers (one question) - 10/05/09 03:03 PM
I wanted to share this at sales meeting. Via Dean Jackson helps Realtors make more money! (MarketingMonday.com - Weekly Real Estate Marketing Podast ): Generating lots of leads is pretty easy.

The truth about lead "conversion" is that you can't actually convert anybody to do anything. They either ARE or ARE (0 comments)
