ShareThis I don't know about you, but I'm starting to get a little offended at what's happened to Long Island in the last few years...as a Long Islander of course. I've decided to take "the battle" to the streets and created the Long Island Real Estate Market Fan Page on Facebook to start making Long Island great again!
Okay - What's Facebook?
Now I'm sure if you're on the internet more than one time in your life, you've heard of the website facebook.com. It is the "cleaner" version of myspace.com, and by that I mean, it's just less advertisements and more connecting with friends, family and more importantly, topics of interest and information.
When I first learned about facebook, I only saw it for one thing, connecting online with...whomever. The more I learn about facebook, the more I see it's a place to find any kind of information, company, service, product...just anything you can think of. It's the social "google" if you will.
It's All About Long Island...
Rather than type into a boring search engine, I can connect locally with a company or a local expert. And that is why I've decided to create the Long Island Real Estate Fan Page.
The more I can share with you and vise versa, about this great place to live, the better off we all are, as we educate people on how great it is to live on Long Island (despite high taxes!). And a note about those high taxes, I say it's like anything else; You get what you pay for! If you want to live where the taxes are $600.00 a year, well then knock yourself out. I did and let me tell you, there's no comparison! I'd rather pay $6,000 a year or more and live in the best place in the country.
From the climate, to the location to New York City, to the convenience of the ocean and magnificent waterways...Long Island is just a great place to live.
And when this economic "ice age" settles and we survive past 2012 (Nostradamus and Mayans eat your heart out!), Long Island will thrive!
Do we need government officials who believe in spending less and lowering taxes - you better believe it, but let's get there one fan at a time. I urge you to join me on the Long Island Real Estate Market fan page.
One of the best things about the facebook platform is, the news and information is there when you want it. It's not like receiving e-newsletters you don't want or commercials you don't want to see on Television. If you become a fan and bounce around on there once in a while, for any topic or fan page, it's so easy and it's free.
If you've read my web articles or gone through my websites, you know that I post pertinent information that can be valuable to the person who's interested in real estate. That's what I will be posting on the Long Island Real Estate Market fan page.
I'm also going to be posting things on there from all over the internet. I hope you do as well.
Again, that's what's so powerful about the facebook environment. It's a community sharing local information from local people.
Now is this a "revolution" on the fan page...Yes it is!
We've got to come together and start making it clear that Long Island is better than Tennessee, Georgia, Utah, Colorado, etc. People are leaving here - young people - and we've got to help our community grow with youthfulness, not perish with age. That's what this fan page is all about. I've posted the link enough. Just join and let's start making Long Island great again!
I'm a Realtor writing about how to be a better Realtor. Over the years I've been in the business, I have developed a consistent business with excellent client relationships. I'm sharing my thoughts on how I've improved my business and life. I hope you read and get something out of it.
