Just a couple of months ago I told my wife that it would be great if a service were available which called a group of people and left them a voice message. If someone actually answered the phone, the call would hang up. This way you could leave a message to clients or prospects in bulk without having to actually call each one.
Well I just got an email this morning from Jim Gillespie who is a commercial real estate coach in which I found out that is now actually available. It called Voice Broadcasting. This could be a (2 comments)
My Name is Bob and I'm a Recovering Landlord - 09/20/11 12:22 PM
It sounds like I'm in a 12-step program, doesn't it? Well, in a way, I am. After working for landlords for 20 years as a Property Manager, Leasing Agent, Construction Manager and Asset Manager, I switched sides and now use that experience strictly for the benefit of tenants who lease office and industrial buildings.

This has the added benefit of making it more exclusive. The Texas Real Estate Commission (TREC) has passed new regulations which do just this. In a press release dated September 9, 2011, TREC will require two (3 comments)
Plano - A Great Place to Live & Work - 09/01/11 11:43 AM
I was at a trade show this week and the Plano Economic Development Board had a booth. They gave me a marketing piece that gave some stats about Plano that I knew to be true, but it's always good to have outside confirmation. So here they are: #1 City in America for Women - as ranked by Women's Health magazine #3 City in America for Men - as ranked by Men's Health magazine #1 Best City to Build Personal Wealth - as determined by Salary.com #1 Most Affluent City - as ranked by U.S. Census for cities over 250,000 53 - (1 comments)
